Market research and analysis firm Frost and Sullivan has published its annual global market report “Global Modular Data Center Market Report.” According to the report, Huawei‘s market share in smart Modular Data Centers has grown rapidly in recent years, recording an increase of almost 8 points from 12.7% in 2017 to 20.5% in 2020, thus demonstrating the leading position of its solution globally.
Based on the report, the global modular data center market is expected to maintain its rapid growth, with a complex annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.9% for the period 2020–2026.
Although the development will impose higher requirements in power and endurance of products and service response from suppliers of modular data centers, Huawei is constantly increasing its investment in innovative technologies as well as the integration of new products.
Huawei’s intelligent modular data centers integrate power supply and distribution, temperature control, wiring and monitoring into a single unit, thus ensuring rapid delivery and deployment on demand. In September 2020, Huawei even unveiled the sophisticated and new-generation FusionModule 5.0 Smart.
Huawei’s Modular Data Center is based on the principles of modularization, artificial intelligence—including an automated robot (AI) inspection for data centers—as well as the integrated lithium-ion battery system, the SmartLi.
Specifically, FusionModule 5.0 includes intelligent power supply and distribution technology, iPower, the intelligent iCooling thermal management solution that improves the power efficiency index (PUE) and iManager, a centralized system management solution, enhancing the creation of a smart solution in data centers that is simple, green, smart and secure.
In July 2021, a new record was set in PUE testing at smart modular data centers. The annual average PUE with Huawei solution was recorded at 1,111 showing a remarkable improvement in the market average, which hovered around 1.5.
Huawei’s modular data center data solution can reduce a data center’s overall power consumption by 25%, which translates into significant energy savings, which allows customers to build low-carbon green data centers.
Huawei’s smart modular data centers are already widely used in various industries worldwide, such as telecommunications providers, Internet service providers (ISPs), the public sector, the financial sector, education, healthcare, industry and transportation.
