RELEASE: New Data Centers Oriented to the Future

- Creating new future-oriented data centers with Green, Simple, Smart and Reliable (GSSR) innovations

MONACO, April 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei hosted the Global Data Center Facilities Summit with the theme "Smart DC, Building the Green Future" in Monaco. Nearly 200 data center industry leaders, technical experts and ecosystem partners from around the world shared their insights on data center industry development trends and innovative practices for sustainable development.

Preferred Options for Large Data Centers: PowerPOD 3.0 and Smart Fan Wall

Huawei launched the next-generation PowerPOD 3.0 and Smart Fan Wall chilled water cooling solution to enable green power supply and efficient cooling for large data centers, ultimately driving low-carbon development.

Huawei developed PowerPOD 3.0 to create integrated power supply systems that provide high density, efficiency, and reliability for large data centers.

The cooling system consumes more than 30% of the energy demanded in a data center. Huawei uses innovative architecture and multiple energy-saving technologies to build a new-generation fan-in-wall chilled water cooling solution that is efficient and reliable, enabling cooling systems in large data centers to consume less energy. .

Building a solid foundation for digital transformation to embrace an intelligent world

Sun Xiaofeng, President of Huawei Data Center Facility and Critical Power Business Unit, delivered a keynote address, foreseeing new opportunities for global data center development and introducing Huawei's strategy in the field of data center facilities.

According to Mr. Sun, fueled by low-carbon and digital transformations, the data center industry is facing unprecedented opportunities. Huawei is looking forward to joining all members of the community to drive data center transformations to make them green, simple, intelligent and reliable, and jointly promote the sustainable development of the data center industry.

Li Huiyong, general manager of Huawei's Data Center Facilities Marketing Department, said the increase in AI computing power drives the rapid development of the data center industry. Huawei proposes the "GSSR" (Green, Simple, Smart, Reliable) concept to meet the challenges of the new era. To help customers build sustainable data centers and embrace a green future, Huawei launches innovative PowerPOD 3.0 and Smart Fan Wall solutions.

Global industry leaders shared data center technology trends, corporate strategies and innovative practices, setting the direction for sustainable data center development.

Stephen Beard, Partner and Global Head of Data Centers at Knight Frank, said that when it comes to embodied carbon and general build form, many people don't know it, but today, 90% of new colocation facilities they can meet BREEAM or LEED excellent. There is now a further move away from concrete and towards precast modular building forms and even cross-laminated timber which has been adopted by EcoDC in Sweden.

Simon McCormick, technical director of Echelon Data Centers, said that Echelon Data Centers aims to be a sustainable prosumer of energy. This encompasses the three pillars of sustainability: economic, environmental and social.

Carlo Malana, CEO of ST Telemedia Global Data Centers (Philippines), said the Philippines is seeing its viability as a data center hub in the high-growth region of Southeast Asia. Key technologies such as lithium-ion batteries and fan walls are designed and implemented for sustainability, flexibility, and customer needs in the face of expanding hyperscalers.

Experts present at the panel discussion include Sanjay Kr Sainani, Global SVP and CTO of Huawei Data Center Business, John Belton, Global Director of Development at Colt Data Center, Carlo Malana, CEO of ST Telemedia Global Data Centers (Philippines), Martien Arts, Director of Mission Critical Facilities at Royal HaskaoningDHV, and Mark Acton, Global Director of Technical Due Diligence at Future-Tech. They exchanged views on topics such as data center sustainability and technology trends.

Highlights of the Global DataCloud Congress

During the Global DataCloud Congress, Huawei introduced its PowerPOD 3.0, EHU indirect evaporative cooling solution, FusionModule2000 solution, and other GSSR-based solutions for small, medium, and large data centers. The exhibition reflects Huawei's technological innovations and explorations in the field of data center facilities. At the conference, Sanjay Kr Sainani, Senior Vice President and Global CTO of Huawei Data Center Business, and Richard Pimper, Senior Vice President and CTO of Huawei Data Center Facility in Europe, shared their views on data center construction and they reached out to other industry experts.

Going forward, Huawei will work with customers and ecosystem partners to explore more possibilities for sustainable development. Huawei will develop advanced green data center solutions based on its technological expertise and innovation strengths to drive low-carbon and intelligent transformation, ultimately accelerating carbon neutrality across the industry.
