The move is part of its international expansion plans, with the company having earlier this year signed up a raft of international partners to flog its services globally. Alibaba's chief executive Daniel Zhang underlined globalization as the company's number one priority earlier this year. The company has also said it will pour $1bn (£653m) into its cloud computing push. The new data center will be Alibaba's ninth globally and the fourth announced in 2015, after its first US data center was opened in March 2015. Ethan Sicheng Yu, veep of the internationally­branded AliCloud, said: "Our second US data center is situated in Silicon Valley, which is the epicenter for technology innovation world­wide." Alibaba's main tactic of achieving global domination will be to hop into bed with local partners and flog its services to Chinese customers doing business abroad. Its latest global partners include Mesosphere, Bankware Global, Appcara, Appnovation, Cloud Comrade, and Panzura. In June, it announced partnerships with chipzilla Intel, data center outfit Equinix, and French website hosting and cloud services provider Linkbynet. This is the first wave of partners to join Aliyun in its plans for cloud world domination. Yu added that the company expects to announce more partnerships as it extends globally. However, the US has a somewhat problematic relationship with Chinese companies – having banned Huawei from bidding for US government contracts because of concerns over spying. The topic of China's supposedly widespread practice of industrial espionage was top of the agenda in a recent landmark meeting between US Chinese Premier Xi Jinping and all the big names of Silicon Valley. ® Sponsored: 4 ways to take your company from good to awesome 3 Comments Tips and corrections Most read Google snaps Dutch woman completely taking the piss Here's how TalkTalk ducked and dived over THAT gigantic hack Windows 10 is an antique (and you might be too) says Google man More from The Register I survived a head­on crash with driverless cars – and dummies Tencent targets Alibaba, Billionaire Soros 'likes' Alibaba shares down as Spanish town trumpets 'Clitoris Festival' thanks to Google snafu 1/4 11/4/2015 Chinese dragon Alibaba ramps up cloud war with second US data center • The Register seeds data cloud with £1 BEELLLION Chinese tech giants strap on the boxing gloves Facebook to the tune of $212m; Alibaba out of favour Investor's company throws millions at ad­flinging platform Google snafu growth slows to a continental creep Chinese tat bazaar suffers domestic economic woes following record IPO Spotlight 2 Comments 5 Comments Alibaba experiences ‘I love China’ company rep breakdown … 22 times Cloud busting: Alibaba pumps $1bn into Aliyun, hopes it will rain cash Alibaba splurges $590m on mobile­maker Meizu.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
