As part of its commitment to developing smart yet low-carbon data centers, Huawei has profiled next-generation data center facilities to include four distinct features: sustainable, simplified, autonomous driving, and reliable.

The consensus was reached based on ‌jointly developed expertise and collaborative‌ ‌efforts‌ ‌between‌ ‌the Huawei Data‌ ‌Center‌ ‌Facility‌ ‌Team‌ ‌and‌ ‌industry‌ ‌experts.

“Next-generation data center facilities will be fully green and energy-efficient while maximizing the recycling of all data center materials. In this way, the overall data center ecosystem will be eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable,” explained Huawei.

The Shenzhen-based smart devices provider also affirmed that prefabricated modular construction could shorten the build time for a 1000-rack data center by up to 6–9 months.

Commenting on autonomous driving, Huawei stated that automated operations and maintenance (O&M) can enable engineers to perform remote inspections of 2000-rack data centers in as little as five minutes. As for reliability, the firm stressed proactive security for ensuring the sustainable development of data centers. 

“Proactive security means using big data and AI technologies to implement predictive maintenance from components to data centers, based on the visibility and perception of all domains in the data centers. Automatic fault response means it will take only 1 minute to spot a fault, 3 minutes to analyze, and 5 minutes to recover,” added Huawei.

At the recent tech event in Fei Zhenfu, CTO of Huawei Data Center Facility Team also announced the firm’s new power supply system, PowerPOD 3.0. 

The company claims PowerPOD 3.0 can reduce the footprint by 40%, lower energy consumption by 70%, and reduce fault rates by 38%.
