Singapore, September 17, 2019] At the Datacenter Dynamics Asia Pacific Awards 2019, Huawei is delighted to announce that Huawei Langfang Cloud Data Center iCooling Project won the ‘Energy Smart Award’ for its contribution in energy optimization and conservation. The awarded data center will provide reference and benchmarking for new data center projects in the Asia Pacific region.
Huawei Langfang Cloud Data Center iCooling Project won the ‘Energy Smart Award’ at DCD Asia Pacific Awards 2019
DCD is known as the ‘Oscars’ of the data center industry, the juries are from authoritative organizations and industry organizations in the global industry, and the award has extensive international influence. This award not only means the industry's recognition of Huawei's data center solutions, but also recognizes Huawei's leadership, originality, and innovation in the data center field.
Huawei Langfang Cloud Data Center has rolled out 4,500 racks in three phases with a planned capacity of 36MW. Initially, the data center was manually adjusted to optimize the energy consumption and the energy saving effect was limited. The annual average PUE could only reach 1.42. However, iCooling, a cutting-edge AI-enabled data center energy efficiency optimization tool, was deployed in the data center in 2018 to optimize the PUE at a given environment condition and IT load. The introduction of iCooling has effectively reduced 8% of the electricity consumed and saved millions of dollars of electricity. As the AI training model evolves gradually, a higher percentage of energy-saving is expected.
Richard Yuan, Huawei Singapore Enterprise Account Director, said, “With continuous innovation and massive R&D investments in the data center field, Huawei has shown remarkable success in improving its data center construction and operation practices as well as user experience. The Prefabricated Modular Data Center Solution is a perfect example as it revolutionizes and shortens the timeline of the data center deployment. By leveraging its ICT and AI capabilities, Huawei will continue to strive and use AI to innovate, provide customers with comprehensive and smart data center solutions.”
Currently, Huawei has deployed data center solutions in many countries such as Europe and the South Pacific, covering multiple key industries such as government, ISP, carrier, finance, and transportation. Besides, Huawei has maintained a long-term and stable partnership, providing intelligent and all-round power assurance for global users.
