ZTE unveils next gen green data center

15 Nov 2016

ZTE Corporation is a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet.

The company has established 20 state-of-the-art R&D centres in Asia, North America and Europe and employs over 30,000 research professionals.

It's also just unveiled ZEGO, a next-generation green data center to decrease the total cost of ownership (TCO) and improve internet data center (IDC) efficiency for global customers.

According to ZTE, ZEGO is an IDC infrastructure system that is designed, assembled, integrated, and tested in advance.

It can be delivered to a data center site as standard plug-and-play modules, and the power supply system and cooling system can also be installed as modules, greatly reducing costs.

In a company statement, ZTE explained that compared with traditional IDC power supplies and cooling systems, ZEGO’s standardised, prefabricated and integrated IDC power supply and cooling modules reduce deployment time by 60 percent, as well as 13 percent of preliminary costs.

“Improper planning can cause extra power consumption. For example, power supply and cooling systems may operate under the maximum load if the IT load is overestimated or, if the IT devices are deployed in phases, operates on a larger scale than necessary in a phase,” the statement read.

“In such cases, the IT devices may need to be cooled by extra devices because the cooling system is not designed properly. With a modular design, customers can minimize these costs and release cash flow by eliminating unnecessary expenses resulting from a large-scale design in the infrastructure. ZEGO’s expansive design therefore allows the IDC to operate more efficiently and with lower usage costs.”
