Shanghai (CNS) – The first phase of the Cloud Computing Center slated to consume 320 acres of Shanghai's Yangshan Bonded District broke ground today, launching developments in line with the goals of the Asia-Pacific Cloud Computing Center Program to construct the infrastructure and relevant value-added services needed for agressive expansion of the industry.

Cloud computing and the Internet of things usher in a new generation of information technology emphasized in the 12th Five-year Plan (2011-2015). A number of China's regions are revving up for the advancement of cloud computing, such as Beijing's Xiangyun Plan, Wuxi's base of cloud computing and the Internet of things.

Ten cloud computing corporations with incomes of 1 billion yuan each year are scheduled to boost the information service industry, eventually bringing in more than 100 billion yuan in operating revenue, according to the 2010-2012 Shanghai Cloud Computing Industry Development Program released by the Shanghai government in 2010.

The Shanghai Cloud Computing Center will attach much importance to its Internet Data Center and related services between 2011 and 2012; meanwhile, the service outsourcing industry and third-party data value-added services based on cloud computing will be promoted by 2015.
