[London, UK, December 18, 2020] Recently, Huawei was awarded as the winner in three categories: “Data Centre Facilities Vendor of the Year”, “New Design/Build Data Centre Project of the Year” and “Data Centre Power Innovation of the Year” at DCS Awards, which demonstrates the unanimous recognition of customers, partners, and professional referee. It is also attributed to Huawei’s continuous investment and technology achievements in the area of data centre facility.
DCS Awards, the premier annual celebration in the data centre industry, has been held for 10 years consecutively, with nearly 200 enterprises participating each year. The DCS Awards is designed to reward the product designers, manufacturers, suppliers and providers operating in data centre arena. It covers 31 categories for both facilities and IT aspects of the data centre, and focus on key technologies that underpin digital revolution. The annual DCS Awards Ceremony was hold online on 10th December 2020.
Huawei data centre facility solutions, with innovative modular design and AI-enabled O&M, builds a simple, green, smart, and reliable next-generation data centre, which helps customers achieve business success. Huawei data centre facility solutions have been applied to wide range of industries, like telecom carriers, ISP, governments, transportation, finance, manufacturing, energy, etc. According to the market report of Omdia and Frost & Sullivan, Huawei ranks world’s No.1 in many aspects, including prefabricated modular data centre, modular data centre and modular UPS.
Data Centre Facilities Vendor of the Year
The award is granted to a colocation data centre in the Middle East. The data centre owner plans to deploy a data centre of 1000 racks to develop Colocation business. The traditional way would have taken over 32 months to construct such size and ROI would be as long as 8.8 years. It would be far from business requirement. The customer chose Huawei prefabricated modular data centre and it only took 14 months to complete the deployment. Meanwhile, it adopt Huawei new generation smart cooling solution to reduce the power consumption by 24%. ROI was shorten from 8.8 years to 6.8 years. Besides, the DC obtained Uptime Tier III Design and Facility certificate.
New Design/Build Data Centre Project of the Year
Comparing with the lead-acid batteries, Huawei SmartLi UPS saves the footprint by more than 50% in an end-to-end manner. It doesn’t require replacement within 10 years, which greatly reduces the OPEX of data centre. Huawei SmartLi UPS innovatively adopts AI technology to predict capacitor lifespan, fan lifespan, temperature of key nodes and battery capacity, etc. It transforms the passive proactive to AI predictive maintenance. Additionally, SmartLi takes active current equalization technology that enable hybrid use of old and new batteries. Working together with Huawei modular UPS, the SmartLi UPS supports flexible capacity expansion that reduce the investment risk and TCO.
Data Centre Power Innovation of the Year
Innovation never ends. Huawei will keep facilitate customer’s success with simple, green, smart, and reliable next-generation data centre.
