China’s Baidu to buy pre-fab data centre from Schneider

Search engine giant deems French M1 containerised data centres worthy.

By Ben Sullivan

Schneider Electric has won the bid from Baidu to build an M1 containerised data centre.

The build will be Baidu’s first prefabbed data centre project, and Schneider claims the eco-friendly container will feature fast deployment, low input and output and the ability to manage high capability operations.

Baidu is one of the largest Chinese search engines, processing billions of search and analysis requests a day. The Baidu M1 data center will meet the needs of the users, whilst moving towards a "green Baidu".

Dr. Chenhong Huang, Senior Vice President, Schneider Electric, said: "The construction of this data centre is essential to transitioning to meet consumer trends.

"The need for speed, cost control and performance in data management is ever growing. Schneider Electric’s prefabricated data centre solution is the data centre in the future. Today’s successful bid is a vote of confidence in Schneider Electric’s innovative development in the field of data management.

"As a reliable partner, Schneider Electric closely pays attention to the demand of the market and the customer, aiming to spread the concept of prefabricated data centre solutions and popularize its conveniences such as its mobility, simple, flexible structure and fast deployment, and cost minimisation."
