Modular DC Helps Guangdong Construction Bank

5/26/2017 12:00:00 AM

Background

Currently, the financial industry faces great changes. The traditional bank is continuously impacted by Internet finance. To robustly take up the challenges from Internet finance, China Construction Bank needed to speed up its business transformation and restructuring and undergo information-based transformation and reform.

Challenges

Under continuous pressures of modern financial industry and internet technology, customers have increasingly demanded convenient and quick financial services. China Construction Bank provides services locally and faces the following challenges:

  • Their service outlets cover small area
  • The carrying capability and management capability of their data centers have reached the limit
  • They rely heavily on manual management
  • The existing equipment rooms have non-uniform construction standards, device aging, and non-uniform management

Guangdong Construction Bank is eager to undergo financial transformation and reform. Restructuring of the data center equipment rooms becomes increasingly important.

The guidelines for restructuring of the equipment rooms are as follows:

  • Uniform hardware standards
  • Uniform construction standards
  • Uniform and centralized management and control
  • Uniform operation and maintenance procedures
  • Uniform monitoring standards

Solution

To satisfy China Construction Bank requirements for equipment room restructuring, Huawei provided their FusionModule2000 modular data center solution.

Huawei modular data center is integrated with IT cabinet, network cabinet, precision air conditioner, battery cabinet, modular UPS, power distribution cabinet, and monitoring. Uniform interfaces and modular architecture are used for simple construction, batch copy, and on-demand deployment, offering uniform construction standards and speeding up service provisioning and transformation.

The modular data center uses Huawei’s highly efficient UPS that can be deployed on demand with efficiency as high as 96 percent. Aisle containment design, isolated hot and cold air, in-row closely coupled cooling, proximity heat transfer, and elimination of local hot spots improve cooling efficiency by more than 30 percent.

Equipment rooms are connected by a network and uniformly managed by an intelligent operation and maintenance platform. Warning of faults, automatic troubleshooting, real-time and centralized monitoring and management improve maintenance and management efficiency.

Benefits

Equipment rooms of the branches can be unattended. Highly efficient, intelligent, and tool-based maintenance and management improve efficiency by 50 percent. Network-based and centralized management with open interfaces connected to a centralized monitoring system provides centralized and intelligent monitoring, management, operation, and maintenance of the power, environment, and security protection systems.

Rapid deployment in two weeks saves time by more than 50 percent compared with the traditional restructuring method, satisfying the customer’s demand for rapid service provisioning.

Network devices, power supply, and cooling are integrated into one solution, saving the covered area by 25 percent. Modular integrated delivery eliminates engineering heterogeneity in traditional construction mode, ensuring equipment room quality.

The UPS power supply in 2N architecture and cooling system in N+1 architecture ensure safe running of the equipment rooms. High-reliability design complies with financial regulations and ensures safe and stable running of the services.
