  • Huawei Launches Brand-New 100 kW High Power Density UPS Power Module: Huawei has officially launched its all-new UPS power module globally. The product enables the power density of a single module to reach 100 kW/3 U, twice that of industry standard Huawei’s FusionPower2.0 data center power supply and distribution solution is based on the 100 kW module, and achieves the ” 1MW, 1 Rack ” (1 standard rack can support 1MW power)principle with a footprint that is more than halved, facilitating improved data center utilization and increased revenue. With the development of AI, big data, cloud computing, and Internet of Things (IoT), data centers have become larger and more complex. With the continual evolution of IT computing capabilities and corresponding improvements to CPU and server power, high-density solutions will gain favor. Power supply and distribution systems in traditional large data centers face a myriad of issues, including low reliability, high power consumption, large footprint, and difficult O&M.
  • Banque des Territoires, GROUPE IDEC and Thésée Data center to Create Tier IV Data Center West of Paris: The three firms have joined together to create a new generation Tier IV shared data center  campus in the Seine Valley.
