The two companies are to develop modular data centres with O&M efficiency at the core.
Huawei and Global Switch have partnered in order to develop new solutions which are to assist in building modular data centres in support of smart Operation and Maintenance (O&M).
Announced at CeBIT 2017, the partnership between Huawei and Global Switch builds an understanding between the two companies that enables them to explore ways to mutually benefit from each other.
The partnership also allows them to further each other’s businesses in respect of data centre design, operation and maintenance and the utilisation of technical space in a data centre.
Global Switch, has built a reputation for creating data centres which set new standards in scale, resilience and connectivity.
The company’s latest focus has been on improving efficiency in data centre operation and maintenance, whilst reducing the expense of operation.
John Corcoran, CEO, Global Switch said: “Global Switch data centres serve customers of diverse scales across many countries and provide them with reliable, secure, and resilient IT infrastructure.
“O&M cost and efficiency are of great importance to large-scale network dense data centres. We look forward to collaborating with Huawei to improve data centre O&M experience and efficiency.”
As a provider of data centre facility solutions, Huawei hopes to help Global Switch by providing new solutions which will be in support of O&M.
Huawei’s mission is to provide simple, efficient and reliable data centre solutions. The company offers technologies such as iPower, iCooling and iManager across its modular data centre solutions to build digital, networked and smart data centres.
Diana Yuan, President of Marketing and Solution Sales Department, Huawei said: “Huawei’s advanced technologies of network connection, energy efficiency optimisation and smart management should prove beneficial in supporting Global Switch in the future.”
Huawei also recently partnered with Canonical for data centre efficiency, with Huawei announcing the inclusion of its completed CloudFabric Cloud Data Centre Network Solution.
