Huawei and Keppel Data Centres pilot study on next-generation Datacenters in Singapore

SINGAPORE, 22 May 2017 – Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider and Keppel Data Centres Holding Pte. Ltd. (KDCH), a leading developer and operator of high quality carrier-neutral data centre facilities in Europe and Asia Pacific today announced the launch of Huawei’s Cognitive Datacenter reference site located at Keppel DC Singapore 4.

The launch follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Huawei and KDCH to explore potential collaboration on data center efficiency and sustainability in the areas of Green Technology, High Performance Computing, Scientific Software Application, Networking Solutions and more.

The Cognitive Datacenter reference site will be a showcase of Huawei and Keppel Data Centres’s state-of-the-art application of cognitive computing within a datacenter environment. Enterprises will be able to leverage deep learning and AI-driven computing to drive automated insights that will inform their next step of growth. It will feature technologies geared towards providing a virtualized and energy efficient datacenter management system. Virtualization allows enterprises a single interface to customize storage resources and data processing capabilities across different data centers on-demand. As a result, enterprises will lower operating and maintenance costs while increasing operational efficiency.

Wang Shao Tong, Managing Director, Huawei Enterprise Business Group (Singapore) said: “Enterprises are going through disruptive phases of digital transformation. They are expected to process massive volumes of data. For instance, for each autonomous vehicle, they can generate as much as 4TB per day. Enabling cognitive intelligence for datacenters will help enterprises identify gaps and opportunities quickly and move ahead of the competition. The collaboration with Keppel Data Centres will bring us one step closer to realizing fully-cognitive datacenters.”

Kenny Khow, Global Head of Sales, Keppel Data Centres said, “We are pleased that our track record as the provider of robust and reliable datacenter solutions for the digital economy has paved the way to this collaboration with Huawei. Keppel Data Centres is committed to continuously explore improvements that benefit the mission-critical IT infrastructure of our customers and set industry benchmarks. We look forward to potentially uncovering new insights that can enhance the datacenter as we know it today.”
