At CeBIT 2017, Huawei signed a partnership agreement with EcoDataCenter to cooperate in the data center sector.
EcoDataCenteris a Swedish company that builds data centers with minimal environmental impact and superior uptime performance guarantees. By combining data centers with sustainable energy systems, energy efficiency is dramatically improved and costs are reduced. Huawei, a leading global ICT solutions provider, incorporates its energy-saving concept into the product lifecycle, and develops innovative technologies to enhance product and solution energy efficiency.
Under this partnership, Huawei and EcoDataCenter will start a long-term collaboration in offering data center solutions that meet the Uptime Institute Tier IV standards to existing and new customers.
Dr. Fang Liangzhou, Vice President of Huawei Network Energy Product Line, said, “Huawei combines innovative technologies across diverse fields and applies ICT technologies in data center infrastructure to keep pace with IT development. Huawei’s data center is committed to developing simplified, eco-friendly, and telecom-grade data center solutions that use digital, net-connected, and intelligent infrastructure to provide customers with simple, efficient, and reliable data centers.”
Mr. Lars Schedin, CEO of EcoDataCenter, said, “The need for data centers around the world is increasing, as more companies see the advantages of working with external data center facilities. Better design, higher uptime performance, lower environmental impact and significantly lower total operational costs for the company all contribute to this development. But this development means an increased need for energy, which affects the environment. EcoDataCenter’s business is based on completely renewable energy, integrated into an already existing energy system, which means we can actually reduce the CO2 footprint in our ecosystem. EcoDataCenter provides the highest uptime performance, highest physical security, greenest solution throughout the process that all contribute to the lowest operational costs.”
