Background

The historic city of Zunyi, located in the northern Guizhou Province, wanted to bolster its reputation as a center for culture, peace, and harmony. With increasing developments in the Information Technology (IT) industry, Zunyi’s Public Security Bureau decided to acquire a high-performance, high-expansion, and simple-management public security cloud data center system. Their goal was to build a ‘smart’ data center infrastructure that could meet the requirements for modern information-based policing.

Challenges

Zunyi’s existing traditional data centers give rise to energy waste, with Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) sometimes registering greater than 2.0. Their multiple data centers are separately managed without unified standards, which results in high labor costs. Also, the floor height is insufficient for future capacity expansion. To accomplish IT-based data centers, Zunyi’s Public Security Bureau established the following requirements:
• Fast deployment and simple expansion to match future business expansion
• Effective technologies to lower energy consumption
• Simplified O&M to reduce labor costs

Solution

Huawei ‘Smart’ Data Center

After careful analysis of Zunyi’s requirements, Huawei proposed its Modular Data Center (MDC) infrastructure, characterized by reliability, efficiency, and simplicity. The infrastructure consists of the following:
• Huawei’s reliable T4+ modular Uninterrupted Power Supply (USP)
• Cabinets
• Power distribution
• Air conditioning
• Cabling components 

All components can be centrally controlled, making each micro-module a self-contained unit. The infrastructure features:
Simplicity: 
• Standardized devices, modular architecture, and on-demand deployment Integrated power supply and distribution 
• 1 to 2 IT racks to save space
• Remote and local intelligent management, and mobile O&M
Efficiency: 
• Closely coupled cooling and efficient power system
• Aisle containment and separated hot and cold air to eliminate hotspots
• Integrated high efficiency UPS power system
Reliability: 
• Dehumidifying at low-load rate down to 10 percent for safe operation of IT equipment
• Excellent environment adaptability and stable operations under extreme conditions
• Pre-alarm of circuit breaker terminal with temperature monitoring
• Batteries with auto-shutdown for fire protection
• Power-off rate reduced by 50 percent

Benefits

Huawei’s ‘smart’ data centers are delivering the following benefits to Zunyi’s Public Security Bureau:

• High Return On Investment (ROI) — Huawei’s cost-efficient, modular system provides a high ROI in a relatively short time. 

• High efficiency and reliability — Huawei’s modular solution provides ‘smart’ data center management for a PUE value of less than 1.5. For redundancy, Huawei’s modular solution uses multiple air conditioners that function at the same time to ensure service availability 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

• Low OPEX — Innovative technologies such as a water-cooled backplane and in-row cooling ensure high cooling efficiency and a lower PUE to reduce operating expenses by 30 percent versus that of traditional data centers. 

• High performance — With Huawei’s solution, cabinets hold more servers to address the increasing requirements of high-performance and cloud computing technology.

• Flexibility — The modular data center solution imposes few requirements on deployment environments, such as ceiling height and Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection, resulting in reduced costs and improved scheduling.
