At the Digital Energy China Tour 2020, Huawei released one new generation modular data center – Smart Micro-module 5.0. According to Huawei, the The smart micro-module 5.0 uses self-developed smart lithium battery (SmartLi battery) for full backup lithium battery. The smart micro-module 5.0 solution also comes with a large screen and supports AI-Smart robot operation. With these features, it maintains a minimal design but offers a secure data center.
One of the selling points of Huawei’s micro-module 5.0 smart data center is the lithium battery. Due to High energy density and light lithium batteries can achieve the same weight as IT cabinets. Compare to lead-acid batteries, save more than 70% of space even with the same Cargo IT. It creates more space and carries more load.
The Huawei SmartLi lithium battery adopts the first active sharing technology. Supports mixing of new and old batteries for smooth battery expansion. This technology reduces investment.
Huawei smart The micro-module 5.0 uses a 43-inch touch screen that it supports AI algorithms and smart communication. This screen incorporates some physical micro-modules and has features such as iPower, iCooling and iManager):
- iPower: Visualization of data center power distribution connectors, key modules in systems, forecast maintenance
- iCooling: Cooling link is visible, AI cooling energy efficiency is optimized and PUE is reduced by 8% -15%
- iManager: The data center is globally visible, “viewing and tuning”, reducing operating and maintenance costs by 35%.
In addition, it also supports face recognition to activate the system and connect the management system. The goal is to show intelligent capabilities to customers in a clear and intuitive way. The screen also seeks to maximize user assistance and reduce operational difficulty.
AI-Robots does the maintenance
In addition, the Huawei smart micro-module 5.0 supports intelligent unmanned inspections with the help of an AI-Robot. According to the company, inspection information is reported in real time and inspection reports are automatically generated to simplify operation and maintenance.
AI intelligent recognition function can check the status indicator of the air switch, fan (for abnormal noises), data images, temperature maps and so on. This eliminates the need for physical control in the data center, thus reducing operating costs. The goal is to replace humans with robots and eventually achieve completely unmanned operation and maintenance. The operation and maintenance of the data center are already in the “unmanned” era.
