China’s Huawei is bringing change to Dubai’s International Airport (the world’s third busiest airport, behind Beijing Capital International and Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International) with the globes first Tier III certified Modular Data Centre Complex.
The venture was completed in just over one year, in accordance with United Arab Emirates month of innovation, which took place throughout February of this year.
Dubai International airport is now described as having “next-generation technologies” under its belt, which will act as a catalyst for the already massive operation that is currently underway at Dubai International Airport.
Dubai Airports have stated that “The new facility will provide a stable and reliable environment for Dubai Airports to host its private cloud,”
Dubai Airports worked very closely with Huawei to construct, and create the Tier III prefabricated data centre, which has encompassed smart operations and advanced management platforms to host critical IT systems.
“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,” Said executive vice president of Dubai Airports, Michael Ibbitson.
Managing director and vice president of Huawei Enterprise Middle East, Alaa ElShimy identified the new technology as “one of the most advanced and unique Tier III certified data centres in the world that will ensure highest levels of availability, maintainability, resiliency and seamless business continuity.”
