Huawei’s iCooling@AI solution is dedicated to improving the power usage effectiveness (PUE) of data centers, resulting in an energy reduction of 8 to 15 percent. This substantial saving contributes to creating a greener and smarter future.
Data centers play a crucial role in supporting the vast array of smart services accessed by billions of Internet users worldwide. With the rapid advancement of technologies like 5G, IoT, and cloud computing, the demand for data has skyrocketed, leading to the growth of the data center industry.
Energy Efficiency Challenges
Data centers consume a significant amount of electricity, accounting for approximately 1 percent of global energy expenditure. However, despite the exponential growth in data center computing instances, power consumption has only increased by 6 percent since 2010. This trend indicates a positive improvement in energy efficiency, thanks to collaborative efforts by governments and enterprises.
iCooling@AI: Enhancing Energy Efficiency
To address the challenges of energy consumption in data centers, Huawei has developed iCooling@AI, an innovative solution that optimizes power efficiency through the integration of big data and AI. By leveraging intelligent algorithms and continuous self-optimization, iCooling@AI enables data centers to reduce their PUE by 8 to 15 percent. This intelligent control system replaces manual adjustments and dynamically adjusts cooling policies based on real-time data analysis.
