SAN JOSE, California, March 15, 2019 / PRNewswire / – Huawei Technologies, a leading provider of solutions for the global information and communication technologies (ICT), today announced plans to introduce Open Rack technology in all of its new public cloud data centers around the world. This step is aimed at improving the environmental sustainability of Huawei’s public cloud data centers by reducing energy consumption while improving operational efficiency by reducing the time spent on installation and maintenance of racks.
The Open Rack initiative, proposed by the Open Compute Project (OCP) computer hardware development project, focuses on converting traditional server racks in data centers and is one of the most promising endeavors in a large-scale computing environment. This is the first rack-mount standard designed specifically for data centers and designed to integrate the rack into the infrastructure of the data center. The complex process of its design took into account the interdependence of all elements – from the power grid to the gateways in the chips on each motherboard. The Open Rack technology used by the world’s largest Internet service providers, including Facebook, Google and Microsoft, helps reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase energy efficiency in a large-scale computing environment.
“Huawei’s engineering and business leadership evaluated the efficiency and flexibility of Open Rack, as well as support for an international supplier base. Providing cloud services to a global client base brings with it a number of problems. The flexibility of Open Rack specifications and the ability of racks to adapt to liquid cooling technology gives Huawei the opportunity service geography. Huawei’s decision to use our development is an excellent quality mark for us! “, said Bill Carter, CTO torus Open Compute Project Foundation.
In addition to introducing Open Rack technology in all cloud data centers, Huawei is also expanding its collaboration with the OSR community to streamline standards development processes, reduce time to market, improve processability and reduce TCO.
Last year, the Chinese developer received the status of a platinum member of the OCP. This year, Huawei will continue to invest effort and resources in collaborating with OCP and the entire open source software community. The company’s active engagement with OCP encompasses participation in a variety of community initiatives, including projects to optimize racks, power consumption, systems management, servers, etc. In particular, Huawei has made an extensive contribution to the development of upcoming specifications for the OCP accelerator module, advanced cooling systems and OpenRMC.
“Huawei’s strategic investments and cooperation with OCP are mutually beneficial for all interested parties,” commented Mr. Kenneth Zhang, CEO of FusionServer, the commercial division of Huawei’s intelligent computing systems. “Combining our company’s extensive experience in telecommunications and cloud computing with With the knowledge and experience of the OSR community, we are increasing our ability to create cutting-edge, flexible and open solutions for customers around the world. And the market leadership and global infrastructure cheers Huawei data center will help OCP master new geography and new market segments. “
In their keynote speech at the OCP Global Summit conference, Huawei representatives will share more information about plans to introduce Open Rack technology, as well as a general strategy for cooperation with OS
