Huawei Technologies is adopting the Open Rack initiative in its new public cloud datacenters around the world. The company aims to optimize the environmental sustainability of its datacenter racks. Proposed by Open Compute Project (OCP), the Open Rack is an initiative designed to redefine the datacenter rack. It integrates the rack into the datacenter infrastructure and handles the interdependency of all the things in a datacenter, including power grids and gates in the chips on each motherboard. Adoption of Open Rack will help Huawei to optimize the energy used by servers, drive operational efficiency, and reduce the time required to install and maintain racks. “Huawei’s strategic investment and commitment to OCP is a win-win,” said Mr. Kenneth Zhang, General Manager of FusionServer, Huawei Intelligent Computing Business Department. “Combining Huawei’s extensive experience in Telco and Cloud deployments together with the knowledge of the vast OCP community will help Huawei to provide…

LONDON — CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE), a premier global data center REIT, has announced that its London I and London II data centre facilities are now running on a 100% renewable energy tariff, a move which the company says will transfer energy annual usage equivalent to 52,000 households to zero-emissions sources.

Comprising a combined 23MW of IT power, both CyrusOne’s London I data centre in Slough and its London II facility in Prologis Park, Stockley, are now served by Hudson Energy, an independent provider of electricity and gas to businesses across the UK. CyrusOne has also confirmed that all new London data centre inventory, including the recently announced 9MW London III facility in Stockley Park, will run off renewable energy.


In addition to the reduction in carbon emissions, CyrusOne customers will benefit from reduced unit costs as a result of the highly competitive rates secured through the procurement process and exemptions from the Climate Change Levy.

“As large energy users in the UK, the data centre industry is in a strong position to effect change in terms of how green energy is priced and made available,” said Tesh Durvasula, President – Europe, CyrusOne.

“Traditionally, green energy tariffs have been priced at a premium, but as more users demand their energy from renewable sources, the rates we can negotiate are decreasing rapidly. We continue to explore ways to maximise the efficiency and resource usage in our data centres so that we can pass those benefits along to our customers.”

The move to an all-green energy tariff is the latest in a wave of innovations championed by CyrusOne to deliver highly efficient and sustainable data center infrastructure to its customers globally.

More broadly across the company, water conservation has been a significant factor in how CyrusOne designs and builds new data centres. In the US, for example, CyrusOne’s hyperscale, purpose-built data centres use an air-cooled chiller technology with an integrated compressor and condenser that cool the closed loop of water. Filling the pipe with water just a single time is the only water consumption with the permanent water supply provided by a single tanker truck.

About CyrusOne
CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) is a high-growth real estate investment trust (REIT) specializing in highly reliable enterprise-class, carrier-neutral data center properties. CyrusOne provides mission-critical data center facilities that protect and ensure the continued operation of IT infrastructure for approximately 1,000 customers, including more than 205 Fortune 1000 companies.

Inspur is expanding its AI (artificial intelligence) computing portfolio from the cloud data center to edge computing, with the launch of new AI server. Called Inspur NE5250M5, the new AI server will feature two NVIDIA V100 Tensor Core GPUs or six NVIDIA T4 GPUs. Inspur NE5250M5 will be useful for most of the compute-intensive AI applications. These applications can include autonomous vehicles, smart cities, and smart homes. Moreover, it will also enable 5G edge applications like internet of things (IoT), MEC and NFV. To enable these applications, the new AI server will feature a telecom server form factor. This form factor will be 2U tall, 430mm deep, and 19 inches wide. Since the design of new server is about half the depth of the traditional standard server, it can be directly installed with telecom servers on the CT data center. “This NE5250M5 is the latest example of Inspur’s commitment to providing a diverse array of cutting-edge AI computing power—from the cloud…

The modern businesses run on data. This data is housed by data centers within thousands of servers. The demand for datacenter capacity has increased manifolds in the last few years. But, these datacenters have a profound impact on our environment. The power consumed by the servers churning information is responsible for the rising operational costs and growing carbon emissions. But not everybody is fully aware of this and the time has come for datacenters to be more efficient AND greener. We interviewed Jeff Brown, Managing Director North America, Submer Immersion Cooling. Submer provides highly efficient, eco-friendly immersion cooling for the datacenters that helps save up to 99% of cooling costs and up to 87% of the physical space. This helps enterprises save energy while helping reduce global warming. Jeff has over 25 years of experience in data center sales and operations. Before Submer, Brown has served as CCO for UK2 Group and Vice President of Sales for Savvis, the $1.5…
