Tech giant Huawei have built a Tier-III data center for Dubai Airports. With this data center, Huawei will host private cloud environments for the airport facility, allowing them to accelerate business-critical workloads.
According to Dubai Airports, managing a large number of flights on a daily basis has put the onus on their IT infrastructure. They further added that building a new data center for their private cloud environments was necessary to lend able support for mission-critical needs.
Explaining this, Michael Ibbitson, Executive Vice President at Dubai Airports, commented:
With over 240,000 passengers and 1,100 flights per day, zero downtime and hundreds of internal and external systems to manage, high reliability and resilience are critical requirements for Dubai Airports’ business technology infrastructure.
Dubai International claim that the data center will boost their business efficiency and enhance customer experience. They also say that since the data center facility is built with a modular design in mind, shipping it to other locations is also possible.
Huawei say that they have built this modular data center with Dubai Airports, keeping latest technology in mind. Explaining this, Alaa ElShimy, Managing Director and Vice President at Huawei Enterprise Middle East, said:
It is one of the most advanced and unique Tier III certified data centers in the world that will ensure highest levels of availability, maintainability, resiliency and seamless business continuity.
In closing, Dubai Airports added that this data center took just 400 days to build from scratch and that another data center of the same kind is in the pipeline.
