Huawei Wins ‘Smart Data Center’ and ‘Living at the Edge’ DCD Awards

Sep 12, 2018

[Singapore, September 12, 2018] At the Datacenter Dynamics (DCD) Asia Pacific awards party, Huawei won two awards with Shandong Unicom and Chindata. Shandong Unicom's cloud ship micro-module project obtained the ‘Smart Data Center’ award, while the Chindata won the ‘Living at the Edge’ award, providing reference and benchmarking for new data center projects in the Asia Pacific region.

DCD is known as the ‘Oscars’ of the data center industry, its judges come from authoritative organizations and industry organizations in the global industry, and the award has extensive international influence. This award not only means the industry's recognition of Huawei's datacenter solutions, but also recognizes Huawei's leadership, originality, and innovation in the data center field.

The data center of China Unicom Shandong Cloud Ship: building a model for smart data centers

Huawei partnered with China Unicom to build the first cloud ship data center in China, the Shandong Cloud Ship Data Center Project. Thanks to the excellent performance of its fast deployment, efficient energy savings, and intelligent and reliable systems, it successfully obtained the ‘Smart Data Center’ award. The project adopts a modular construction mode and energy conservation and environmental protection technology, combined with Huawei’s data center intelligent management system NetEco6000 for life cycle management, it achieves a lower PUE for the data center and creates a model for green and energy-saving intelligent data centers.
