Smart DC, Building The Green Future | Huawei Unveils Top 10 Trends Of Data Center Facilities
(MENAFN-AETOSWire) (Business Wire) - Huawei recently held a "Top 10 Data Center Trends" conference on the topic of "Smart Data Center, Building a Green Future". Fei Zhenfu, president of Huawei Data Center Facility Domain, released a white paper outlining Huawei's vision of data center trends to promote sustainable development in the data center industry.

As global demand for computers grows exponentially in the era of digital intelligence, Fei said, the construction of data centers will increase. To achieve carbon neutrality, industry must prioritize energy conservation, reduce carbon emissions and switch to clean technologies. This creates both problems and opportunities. Based on industry experience and knowledge, Huawei has identified the following 10 trends:

Trend 1: Low carbon emissions

Data centers will implement low-carbon green solutions and use clean energy sources such as solar, wind and hydro to minimize their carbon footprint. Green energy consumption is expected to exceed 50% by 2027. Advanced energy saving solutions and technologies such as waste heat recovery to improve energy efficiency and recovery speed data centers.

Trend 2: Sustainability

New sustainability metrics will be introduced for data centers, including renewable energy use, water use efficiency (WUE), carbon use efficiency (CUE), space use efficiency (SUE), network use efficiency (GUE), material and pollutant recycling rate more than. whole life emissions in addition to current energy efficiency (PUE).

Trend 3: Rapid implementation

Data centers must be rapidly expanded to meet growing computing needs, and construction times must be reduced from 12 months to six months or less.

Trend 4: high density

As chip performance and power consumption improve, the demand for high-density data centers will increase. Cloud data centers will become commonplace and diverse IT collaboration will become the norm. By 2027, the typical power density per IT rack will increase from 6-8 kW to 12-15 kW. The specific power of supercomputers and intelligent computing centers will reach 30 kW and more.

Trend 5: Elasticity

The data centers of the future will become more flexible with innovations, a generation of facilities that support the ability to scale beyond two or three generations of computing equipment. The standard design facilitates on-demand deployment and flexible capacity expansion.

Trend 6: Prefabrication

The simple pre-built architecture will solve the problems faced by traditional data centers such as long construction times and complex O&M operations. In the future, the data center building will accommodate more than 1,000 racks and more than 10,000 racks on campus. The pre-engineered design will reduce the construction time of a 1000-rack data center from 12 to 6 months, enabling rapid delivery and on-demand expansion.

Trend 7: Storage and backup integration

Energy-intensive data centers will require renewable energy and energy storage. The deployment of energy storage systems (ESS) in data centers will allow the integration of short-term back-up energy systems to participate in frequency regulation and peak smoothing, thus increasing the stability of the electrical system. Reducing overheads will also increase Network Utilization Effectiveness (GUE), so more IT racks will be deployed to increase revenue.

Trend 8: Distributed cooling

A distributed cooling system uses cooling sources for each data room and uses a redundant configuration as needed. In the future, distributed cooling systems will gradually replace city cooling as the preferred solution for large data centers due to their flexible architecture and high reliability.

Trend 9: Smart O&M

Intelligent operations and maintenance are critical to improving the efficiency and reliability of data center resources. Intelligent operations will automatically determine the health of data center assets to maximize asset value. Smart Maintenance will identify faults and optimize energy savings in real time to improve operational and maintenance efficiency, provide predictive maintenance and optimize energy efficiency.

Trend 10: Security and reliability

As digital technology and intelligence advance, data centers will improve hardware reliability, software security, system resiliency, security, privacy and availability. Artificial intelligence technologies will implement preventive maintenance of components, devices and systems at the hardware level. Hierarchical protection will be provided at the software level. A combination of software and hardware measures will increase data center reliability.

In the future, Huawei will strengthen technological innovation to lead the industry and build a strong digital foundation to provide more competitive products and solutions for a greener, low-carbon future for the data center industry. .
