Huawei 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.

Autonomous 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%.
