On-demand access to IT resources
Information and communications technology (ICT) offerings provider Huawei has introduced its next-generation green modular data centre offerings for cloud computing.
With the next-generation intelligent data-centre solution (IDS) series, customers can realise on-demand access to IT resources and conduct business operations efficiently and the data-centre soloution (IDS) series allows customers to avoid high capital expenditure and operating expenses caused by increased power consumption.
The IDS1000 helps customers to reduce the duration of construction phase to 2 months and the power consumption of the IDS1000 is 50% less than that of traditional equipment rooms. IDS1000 can support disaster relief, large events, and military operations.
IDS2000 uses advanced cooling technology, and features Huawei’s iFOS intelligent management system, constructed based on a visible expert system, which dynamically adjusts the power supply and cooling capacity based on the workload of the cloud platform.
The IDS2000 delivers a power usage effectiveness (PUE) value of less than 1.2 and is suitable for the modularised construction and expansion of medium and large data centres, said the company.
Huawei Energy and Infrastructure Product Line president Hou Jinlong said the modular IDS series has developed as a new trend in the construction of data centres around the world.
"Together with our partners, Huawei is working on building a new generation of data centre infrastructures, featuring unified planning, on-demand deployment, and low energy consumption. This new generation will help customers reduce the cost of operation by more than 30 per cent, ushering in a new era in cloud computing," said Jinlong.
Huawei IT product line CTO Li Sanqi explained that Huawei’s core concept in the cloud-based data centre infrastructure field was focused on intelligent management, high-density deployment, green energy saving, and flexible expansion.
"Huawei’s modular IDS series includes the container-type (IDS1000) and building-type (IDS2000) modular data centres, which feature simplified designs to effectively reduce the need for large equipment rooms and environments," said Li Sanqi.
