Apple iCloud to build data center in Inner Mongolia

This would be the iPhone maker's first data centre in northern China, set to launch operations in 2020 and manage iCloud services for mainland Chinese users, says Xinhua.

That's an area already known for massive Bitcoin mining farms, in part because of the cost of electricity in the area.

The new data centre will be located at Ulanqab City, within the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

Construction on a Chinese data center for Apple Inc, the USA tech giant, is scheduled to begin later this year and the center is expected to open in 2020, sources close to the project has said. The Chinese news agency said that the agreement between Apple and city government calls for the project to operate on 100% renewable energy. Apple announced plans to build that data center in July 2017.

28, iCloud services on the Chinese mainland will be operated by a local partner, Guizhou-Cloud Big Data Industry Co, . Ltd. Apple began transitioning to the state-controlled data center in order to comply with Chinese laws regarding data hosting.
