revealed its next-generation data center facility, alongside the launch of
PowerPOD 3.0, a brand-new power supply system. Based on the joint efforts
between Huawei Data Center Facility Team and industry experts, these endeavors
reaffirm Huawei’s commitment to building low-carbon, smart data centers.
Sustainable: Next-generation data center facilities will be
eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable as it utilize green resources –
electricity, land, and water – and maximize the recycling of used materials
throughout the life cycle. In addition to the extensively-used Power Usage
Effectiveness (PUE), other indicators, including Carbon Usage Effectiveness
(CUE), Water Usage Effectiveness (WUE), and Grid Usage Effectiveness (GUE),
will also be used to measure data center sustainability.
Simplified: Simplified architecture, power supply, and
cooling embody data center facility evolution. Bringing innovative forms of
buildings and equipment rooms, if the prefabricated modular construction mode
is used to construct a 1,000-rack data center, the construction period can be
reduced to 6–9 months. On the other hand, simplified power supply reshapes
components and links, shortening the delivery period from 2 months to 2 weeks
while simplified cooling maximizes heat exchange efficiency by changing multi-
to single- heat exchange.
Driving: Reshaping the management of
data centers’ operation and maintenance, O&M automation enables engineers
to complete the inspection of 2,000 racks in 5 minutes remotely. For energy
efficiency optimization, an optimal cooling strategy can be delivered via 1.4
million original combinations within 1 minute, achieving smart cooling.
Reliable: Ensuring high quality and sustainable data
center development, proactive security includes using big data and AI
technologies in implementing predictive maintenance. With automatic fault
response, it will take only 1 minute to spot a fault, 3 minutes to analyze, and
5 minutes to recover. In parallel, security will be ensured at various levels
as the end-to-end visualizable, manageable, and controllable platform enables
the system availability to reach 99.99%.
