Chinese state media have reported that the first stage of construction of a lofty cloud campus in the Tibet Autonomous Region has been completed.
According to the country’s state media, the facility, located in Tibet’s administrative capital Lhasa, is the highest cloud campus in the world. As noted by DCD, the emphasis on “cloud” is conspicuous here – suggesting that the Tibet Cloud Computing Center is not necessarily the world’s highest data centre.
Germany has unveiled plans for a new cloud service to rival AWS and Alibaba Cloud.
Economy Ministry minister Peter Altmaier announced the service at the Digital Summit in Dortmund today, but the announcement was overshadowed after he fell off stage and injured himself. The economics ministry said Altmaier is conscious and undergoing medical treatment.
The cloud service will be named Gaia-X in reference to the Greek goddess symbolising Earth and was developed with SAP SE, Deutsche Telekom AG and Deutsche Bank AG.
