Huawei has announced the launch of the next generation of intelligent data centers

Huawei has announced the launch of the next generation data center facility with the introduction of a completely new power supply system PowerPod 3.0. The innovation, made possible by the joint efforts of Huawei’s data center facility team and industry experts, reaffirms Huawei’s commitment to building smart, low-carbon data centers.

A new generation of increasingly innovative data centers

Charles Young, Huawei’s Senior Vice President and CEO of the Huawei Data Center Facility Team, showcased the next generation of groundbreaking innovations in data center facilities at launch. On the occasion, he said that technology experts and industry authorities, after in-depth and detailed discussions, have agreed on four features of next-generation data center facilities, namely: sustainable, simplified, autonomous driving and reliability.

Durable: Next generation data centers will be fully green and energy efficient, where all data center content will be recycled. In this way, the overall data center ecosystem will be green and sustainable. These can be achieved by using green resources – electricity, land and water – and by recycling materials used throughout the life cycle. In addition to the widely used PUE (power utilization efficiency) indicator, other indicators including CUE (carbon utilization efficiency), WUE (water utilization efficiency) and GUE (grid utilization efficiency) will also be used to measure data center stability.

Simplified: Simplified architecture embodies the evolution of power and cooling data center installations. Simplified architecture brings innovative forms to buildings and equipment rooms. If prefabricated modular construction mode is used to build a 1000-bay data center, the construction period can be reduced from 18 months to 6-9 months. Redesigned simplified energy components and links. This shortens the delivery time from 2 months to 2 weeks. Simplified cooling replaces multiple heat exchanges with one and maximizes heat exchange efficiency by shortening the cooling link.

Autonomous driving : O & M’s automation, energy efficiency optimization, and operational autonomy are reshaping the operation and maintenance of data centers. The automation of operation and maintenance allows engineers to inspect 2,000 racks remotely within 5 minutes. Optimizing energy efficiency can provide the best cooling technique through 1.4 million original adjustments in 1 minute, realizing intelligent cooling. The autonomy of the operation maximizes the value of the assets.

Reliability: Active security and secure architecture ensure the development of high quality and sustainable data centers. Proactive security means the use of big data and AI technology to implement predictive maintenance from material to data center based on visibility and perception of all areas of the data center. Automatic error response means it only takes 1 minute to identify an error, 3 minutes to analyze it and 5 minutes to fix it. A secure architecture means that security will be provided at different levels, such as components, devices and systems. At the system level, the visible, manageable and controllable E2E platform achieves 99.999% system availability.

PowerPod 3.0: A power supply system that saves time, space and energy

At the event, Fei Zhenfu, Technical Director of the Huawei Data Center Facility Team, launched a new generation power supply system called PowerPOD 3.0. This system reduces footprint by 40%, energy consumption by 70%, delivery time from 2 months to 2 weeks, and SLA failure rate by 38%. %

Following next-generation data centers, technological innovation will be a key force in ensuring sustainable development. Looking to the future, Huawei will continue to make advances in products and technologies through continued investment in research and development and extensive collaboration with customers, ecosystem partners and industry organizations. Together we can usher in a new era of data center development.
