The DCS Awards 2021, the data centre industry’s flagship event
Held in London, the DCS Awards is the data centre industry's flagship event, designed to reward product designers, manufacturers, and suppliers who have made notable efforts in the data centre field, with nearly 200 companies participating each year. In 2021, there were more award categories than in any other year — 32 in total — highlighting the vital importance of data centres in the emerging, intelligent world. In addition to awards covering data centre infrastructure and Information Technology (IT) innovation, innovations made in energy efficiency and sustainability were new areas of focus for 2021.
Huawei says its success at the DCS Awards 2021 is “testament to the investment made in technology and product convergence and innovation for data centres.” Looking to the future, it will continue along the same path, focusing on innovation in order to build simple, green, smart, and reliable data centre solutions.
Huawei’s data centre plan for the future
Based on a smart and modular concept, Huawei's aim is to build simple, green, smart, and reliable low-carbon data centres through the reconstruction of four key areas: architecture, cooling systems, Operations and Maintenance (O&M), and power supply.
With a commitment to ongoing technological innovation, Huawei has been recognised by customers, partners, and the DCS Awards judges alike, and was named Data Centre Facilities Vendor of the Year for 2021.
