In the future, Huawei has released the top ten trends of data center energy

the tentacles of online office, collaborative production, live broadcast and delivery digitalization are accelerating to extend to the industrial side, production side and other dimensions, and the digitalization transformation process of all walks of life is pressing the fast forward key. As the foundation to support the digital transformation, the data center is also taking advantage of the new infrastructure, breaking the waves of the times, and ushering in new opportunities in the era of rapid development of modern technology

standing at the tuyere of the times, opportunities and challenges coexist. Only by understanding the trend can we lead the change. Today, Fei Zhenfu, President of data center energy field of Huawei digital energy product line, released ten trends of data center energy, and joined hands with industry experts, authoritative celebrities, media friends and ecological partners to jointly discuss the development trends and opportunities of data center energy, so as to contribute wisdom to the healthy development of the industry

Trend 1: Zero Carbon DC

carbon neutralization has become the most urgent mission in the world today, which will bring profound changes, and the construction of green and low-carbon data centers has become an inevitable direction. Green electricity such as wind energy and solar energy will be more widely used in data centers. It is a general trend to save resources (energy, land, water, materials, etc.) to the greatest extent in the whole life cycle of data centers. In large data center parks, heat recovery, as a new energy-saving scheme, has begun to be implemented. China's new data center pue will move towards the 1.0x era, and zero carbon DC will appear

as the country's first big data industry demonstration base operating with 100% clean energy, Hainan big data Industrial Park in Qinghai adopts Huawei intelligent micro module solution, which improves energy efficiency by more than 30% compared with traditional data centers, saves 10million kW h of electricity per year, and reduces 5955 tons of carbon dioxide per year

02 trend 2: high density

in the next five years, it equipment will continue to evolve towards high computing power and high power density, and the power of CPU and server will continue to increase. At the same time, with the growth of the demand for AI applications, the proportion of AI computing power will further increase. In order to balance efficiency and cost, the data center will develop towards high density. It is expected that by 2025, diversified computing power collaboration will become the mainstream, and the mainstream cloud data center will form a mixed deployment form of 15~30kw/cabinet

build a data center for the Romanian network service provider invite system SRL. Huawei adopts the intelligent lithium UPS ultra-high-density power supply scheme. The power density of each module of the UPS is 50kva/3u, and the overall floor area is only 7. In case of power failure or common failure resulting in shutdown, 1.19 ㎡ is used for standby power, which saves 70% of the floor area, and can support more it business operations

03 trend 3: elastic capacity expansion

the life cycle of IT equipment is generally 3-5 years, and its power density roughly doubles every 5 years, while the life cycle of data center infrastructure is 10-15 years. Data center infrastructure needs to support architecture flexibility and phased investment, and use capex with the best life cycle to meet the power evolution of 2-3 generations of IT equipment. At the same time, due to the different IT businesses carried, the data center must have the flexibility to match the mixed deployment of IT equipment with different power densities, so as to achieve on-demand capacity expansion and save space

Huawei's prefabricated modular data center solution reshapes the data center with a new architecture of one floor and one DC, combines prefabricated building technology with modular data center technology, pre integrates temperature control, fire protection, power supply and distribution, management and other subsystems into the module, supports power density elastic upgrade and vertical expansion, and deploys flexibly by stages

04 trend 4: rapid deployment

Internet services show the characteristics of rapid outbreak in a short time. Affected by the epidemic, the demand for business side data and traffic has surged, and rapid deployment has become a rigid demand. In addition, the data center needs to match the application needs of the cloud from the support system to the production system. Faster online means faster revenue. In the future, the TTM of data center will be reduced from the typical level to 6 months, or even 3 months

Huawei Dongguan cloud data center adopts a prefabricated modular data center solution. The scale of phase II is 8mW, and the delivery is completed at a super speed of 1000 cabinets in 6 months

05 trend 5: Architecture minimalism

in response to the disadvantages of slow construction of traditional data centers and high initial investment costs, system level and data center level architecture minimalism will become the mainstream. The power supply/refrigeration architecture of the data center will evolve from the traditional architecture to the integrated link level integrated products. Under the prefabricated and fully modular design, the data center has the advantages of rapid deployment, flexible capacity expansion, simple operation and maintenance, high efficiency and energy saving

Huawei's prefabricated modular data center uses Lego building blocks to build a five story data center with 1000 cabinets. The ground main building takes only 7 days from scratch, and the overall end-to-end delivery takes only 6 months, which is more than 50% less than the delivery time of the traditional steel-concrete building data center

06 trend 6: comprehensive lithium electrification

the traditional data center power supply and distribution system has problems such as system fragmentation and complexity, large floor area, and difficult fault location. With the advance of the trend of lithium in and lead out, and the continuous decline of lithium battery costs, lithium batteries will be applied on a large scale in the data center and gradually move towards comprehensive lithium electrification. Compared with traditional lead-acid batteries, the life cycle of lithium batteries is twice that of lead-acid batteries in pedal, front end of vehicle body and cockpit beam. At the same time, lithium batteries have advantages in floor area, operation and maintenance efficiency, service life and safety, which can save 70% of the land area and realize the high-density and modularization of power supply system

21vianet Suzhou Guoke data center adopts the overall solution of Huawei intelligent lithium battery UPS, which saves more than 50% of the floor area of end-to-end power supply and distribution, and increases the out of cabinet rate by 10%. The modular UPS intelligent sleep function achieves low load. 2. Overload and overspeed are strictly prohibited. The machine is required to be used efficiently, which can save millions of yuan of electricity every year

07 trend 7: wind, water and retreat
