- Company also showcases its flagship enterprise storage systems
SHENZEN, China-based ICT solutions provider Huawei has launched its first ‘container data centre’ – a data centre housed within a single 40ft shipping container.
The container data centre was designed with reliability, security, fast deployment, mobility, and energy- and cost-savings in mind, the company said in a statement.
Huawei’s Container Data Centre IDS1000-A fully addresses issues faced by today’s fast-moving businesses, including managing rapid future expansion, in contrast to installing traditional data centres that suffer from long construction periods, high energy consumption and high initial investment, it claimed.
The solution was unveiled at Huawei’s three-day ICT Roadshow that was held in Kuala Lumpur recently, where the company also showcased its flagship enterprise storage system, the Huawei OceanStor 18000 series.
This series consists of two models, the OceanStor 18500 and OceanStor 18800. Last December, the OceanStor 18000 series was awarded the 2013 New Product Innovation Leadership Award by Frost & Sullivan, Huawei said.
“Huawei has more than 10 years’ experience in data centre services,” said Huawei Malaysia country director Leo Li.
“We have built more than 330 data centres and 70 cloud data centres worldwide, providing data centre service to global mainstream data centre integration venders and top carriers,” he added.
Huawei established its Southern Pacific Regional HQ in Kuala Lumpur, and said it provides ICT training for 20,000 engineers annually via the Huawei Global Training Centre in Cyberjaya.
