Huawei to integrate Open Rack across data centres to drive energy efficiency
Chinese tech and communications giant Huawei has announced that it will adopt the Open Compute Project (OCP) Open Rack solution across its global network of public cloud data centres, driving environmental sustainability and enhancing efficiency.
Open Rack is the first rack standard designed specifically for data centres and is integrable with each data centre’s existing infrastructure, benefitting facilities by increasing energy efficiency in the scale computer space as well as reducing the time required to install and maintain racks.
Through these benefits, Open Rack also stands to reduce the total cost of ownership of data centres that adopt the solution.
Huawei joins Facebook, Google and Microsoft in utilising Open Rack.
“Huawei’s engineering and business leaders recognized the efficiency and flexibility that Open Rack offers, and the support that is available from a global supplier base,” said sBill Carter, Chief Technology Officer for OCP, in Huawei’s statement.
