[Hong Kong, February 2, 2016] Huawei held the Asia Pacific Data Center Technical Summit at the InterContinental Hong Kong on February 1. Data center experts and customers from Tencent, IHS, China Construction Bank, iAdvantage, Keppel, Elitery, and other companies delivered keynotes to share insights and experiences about Asia Pacific data center development.

Driven by cloud computing and big data, the Asia-Pacific region has become one of the world's fastest growing regions for the data center business. “In the past decade, the Asia Pacific data center market, especially the UPS market, has shown steady growth. The overall market size has exceeded North America and EMEA,” noted Jason dePreaux, Research Director, Data Center & Critical Infrastructure at IHS, remarked in his keynote. “In the meantime, limited space, construction time, high labor costs, information security and reliability are all becoming major challenges for data center construction in this region. Zhu Hua, director of data center facility, Tencent, pointed out that: “As the architecture of data centers will be much simpler in the future, the “modular” conception is becoming popular. Free Cooling technology and automatic operation & maintenance are  key competitive advantages for data centers.

Sanjay Kumar Sainani, Regional Vice President of IT & Data Center Solutions in the Middle East Region, Huawei, noted that: “To build a future-oriented data center with the concept of maximizing resources, facing limited space, time, and energy resources, Huawei’s new generation modular data center delivers excellent performance in construction time, deployment and capacity expansion. At the same time, with high efficiency, dynamic capacity deployment and expansion, modular UPS has become a reliable power supply solution for future-oriented data centers.

As Hong Kong has become a choice location for data centers in Asia, Lewis Chan, CTO of SUNeVision Hong Kong, shared his company’s data center construction experience in Tseung Kwan O, and discussed how to adapt existing industrial buildings to meet new demands. Other keynote presenters, such as Zhao Jing from China Construction Bank, Thomas Pang from Keppel, and Suryakusuma from Elitery discussed their local situations and the demand for data centers at the summit, with topics ranging from architectural design to operations.

Wing Kin Leung, CTO of Marketing& Solution Sales Dept., Huawei Enterprise Business Group remarked, “Driven by the advent of the IoT, virtualization, and data center consolidation, data centers have evolved from a tool to support company operations, to an important business that generates profits. Huawei constantly invest on the research of data center and provide high performance solutions based on the demand of global customers.”  According to the market report of ICT research and CCID, Huawei had become the industry leader in China modular data center and modular UPS market. Modular data center solutions perfectly match construction trends in Asia Pacific.
