Benefiting from strong electricity power supply at a low price and a cool climate for storing servers, Inner Mongolia is actively developing big data and cloud computing industries.

It has set a goal of building the largest data center in North China, and expects to have more than 3 million servers in use over the next three to five years.

"The output of the big data industry in the region is expected to surpass 100 billion yuan by 2020," Bu Xiaolin, chairwoman of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, said.
