"As an innovation-driven data center facility solution provider, we make great efforts to build and upgrade every product series to ensure customers competitiveness," said Mr. Fei Zhenfu, President of Huawei Data Center Facility Domain. "We aim to lead the market in the long run by securing competitive advantages of products comprehensively, driving product differentiation, and broadening the product portfolio."
FusionModule2000 6.0: an upgraded smart modular data center solution to maximize energy efficiency at the edge
With the introduction of FusionModule2000 6.0, Huawei has expanded its Smart Modular DC solution portfolio for edge computing applications. Featuring a brand-new design, the small/medium-sized modular data center solution is built to meet the demands of education, government, and retail customers who are looking for smaller and greener modular data centers.
Key features of the product include:
Green: The average annual power usage effectiveness (PUE) of FusionModule2000 6.0 can be as low as 1.111. In tests conducted by China's Cloud Computing & Big Data Research Institute and local IT group The Green Grid China (TGGC) in Beijing, a data center with 100kW input power can reduce PUE by 30% using FusionModule2000 6.0 compared to the competitor's solution, thus saving electricity consumption by around $27,000 each year.
Dedicated tools and cutting-edge technologies, such as the refrigerant pump, the adaptive compressor, and iCooling, are leveraged to maximize cooling efficiency and optimize the energy consumption of data centers.
Simplified: FusionModule2000 6.0 eliminates most of the rigid environmental requirements with salient features such as a small footprint, low height, and low weight. A fully integrated UPS and SmartLi-inside design reduces footprint by 60% and weight by 30% compared with UPS products powered by lead-acid batteries. The modular structure and one-click commissioning shorten the deployment period from 30 days to 7 days. It allows for simplified operations & maintenance (O&M) through mobile intelligent management.
Reliable: From reliable hardware architecture to software, each component of FusionModule2000 6.0 is designed with safety in mind. Reliable equipment promises zero power fault, zero battery risk, and zero cooling attenuation. The continuous cooling architecture ensures uninterrupted service. The smart modular data center solution has already received cybersecurity certifications from China Cyber security certification and International Common Criteria certification.
Small SmartLi UPS: Save space by 65%
To overcome challenges in small UPS devices, such as difficult management and low efficiency, Huawei launched UPS2000-H and SmartLi mini, a simplified, reliable, green power supply solution integrated with SmartLi Mini, in the market.
Small SmartLi UPS
Simplified: UPS2000-H comes with simplified deployment and O&M. It can be installed in both tower and rack configurations to power a variety of applications. It starts up just with a click and comes online within 3 minutes automatically, ensuring a simplified, fast and worry-free deployment. The device can be managed remotely in real time with the on-cloud management system, further reducing O&M costs.
Reliable: UPS2000-H features cutting-edge design and superior reliability. With the shield-like triangle shape, its symmetrical design has received the reddot design award, one of the world's most prestigious design awards. Its availability can reach up to 99.999% due to the copper bar connection. Laser welding and 6 kV reinforced insulation prolong the service life of SmartLi Mini to up to 10 years. SmartLi Mini uses a pack-level fire extinguisher to prevent open flames from spreading, ensuring the superior reliability of UPS2000-H.
Green: UPS2000-H delivers industry-leading efficiency of up to 96%, which is 2% higher than competitors' products. The improvement in efficiency ensures significant cost savings. UPS-2000H features high density with 5U @ 6KW and 40-min backup time. Compared to the industry standard of "14U" rack height, the small SmartLi UPS saves cabinet space by 65% and enables 9U space for IT equipment to be deployed in a single cabinet.
Looking ahead, Huawei will keep continuous innovations and provide customers with simple, green, smart, and reliable next-generation data centers.
