Huawei announced that its cloud container data center has been awarded Tier III Design Certification by Uptime Institute and said it was the first container data center to receive the certification.

Located in the K3 District of Huawei's Headquarters in Shenzhen, Huawei began development of the cloud container data center project in 2012.

The design features a 2N (double system backup) architecture of power distribution and cooling systems, reducing the risk of any single point of failure.

It currently supports a virtual desktop infrastructure with over 10,000 users. The data center is equipped with core energy efficiency technologies including the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system, hot/cold aisle containment, efficient in-row chilled water air conditioning unit, a single cabinet 9kw high-density deployment and intelligent management.  These features enable the container data center to achieve a low power usage effectiveness (PUE) rating, even in high temperature environments.

Since its early launch, Huawei's cloud container data center has been implemented in large-scale deployments across China, Europe, Asia, Middle East, Latin America and Africa.  It has a  temperature tolerance between -40°C and +55°C, and a 1.25 PUE rating in automated natural cooling program.

Huawei predicts rapid growth in the cloud data center market, which will become more complex to meet the changing needs of the industry. It will gradually become more difficult for indoor data centers to address customers' ever changing needs the company said.
