Huawei is said to have the largest share of the global modular data centre market
Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM) has said it partnered with Huawei to build an uptime Tier- IV certified Municipal Disaster Recovery Data Centre. The data centre was awarded Uptime Tier – IV design certification by Uptime Insight on May 6.
The Huawei FusionModule2000 Smart Modular Data Centre is said to be the first in the world to receive Uptime Tier-Ready IV certification. Local engineers only needed to carry out simple on-site installation, since this modular data center is prefabricated in the factory. It was quickly brought online and ready for use, a statement said.
“Our digitalisation journey with Huawei has transformed our operations, building more resilience and convenience throughout the Municipality. The Tier IV disaster recovery data center, jointly built with Huawei, fully demonstrates the industry’s most advanced solutions and impeccable customer service. We are guided in our digitalisation by the vision of the UAE’s leadership to enhance our community through technology. Huawei is our partner of choice and we look forward to future cooperation with them,” said Ahamd Abdulsamad Alhammad, acting director of the technical planning department at Abu Dhabi Municipality.
The FusionModule2000 is said to be built around a fully modular design and supports the sustainable development of municipal services, with flexible capacity expansion possible for a range of subsystems, from power supply to cooling and IT cabinets, the statement explained.
