Operator restructures IDC, micro-module room demand bursts

As traditional voice messaging services are affected by OTT and the rapid rise of data services, operators are also throwing anchors to IDC services. The explosive growth of the Internet industry, government service outsourcing and smart city construction will bring broader prospects for the development of the IDC service industry in the next few years. It is estimated that by 2016, the domestic IDC market will reach 54.8 billion yuan, with an average annual growth rate of more than 30%.

In recent years, the development of communication network technology has laid the foundation for the implementation of the “Broadband China” strategy. Domestic telecom operators have fully launched all-optical network construction. Traditional PSTN switching equipment is gradually replaced by NGN softswitch and IMS, and new equipment is exchanged. The capacity has been greatly improved, and the space required to be reduced has been reduced. After the rectification, a large number of communication equipment rooms have been vacated. The number of these computer rooms is large and distributed throughout the country, providing a site advantage for the construction of the operator IDC. In addition, taking advantage of its own network bandwidth, operators will still It dominates the IDC market. Nonetheless, heavy asset investment and low-cost rents have created significant obstacles to IDC construction. Operators face many challenges in reducing initial investment, rapid deployment, profitability and lower operating costs.

At the end of 2015, Shandong Unicom's existing network has fully realized “Optical Network Shandong”, and some of the qualified networked machine rooms have to be transformed into small and medium-sized IDC machine rooms, which are located in various cities and cities, matching the localization needs of local government and enterprise customers. Large base IDCs form complementary. Faced with these computer rooms of different sizes, Shandong Unicom chose to adopt the micro-module construction method, and unified bidding and procurement according to micro-modules, and Huawei, which provides end-to-end solution, also became the biggest winner of this bidding.

So what is a micromodule? Why do micro-modules get the favor of operators?

Micro-module is a modular data center product integrating IT cabinet, precision air conditioner, uninterruptible power supply, monitoring, lighting, wiring, security and other systems. Each micro-module is a separate unit, which can be regarded as a single small computer room. To achieve decoupling between micro-modules and micro-modules, the construction of IDC is formed by clustering such small computer rooms. According to the construction of micro-modules, the data center can be deployed in phases. On the one hand, because IDC is for multi-user needs, according to different IT requirements, matching different micro-module models, single-chassis power density and TIER level requirements; on the other hand, the original need to build the entire machine room, now It only needs to be built according to the micro-module, and the modular and phased deployment also greatly reduces the initial investment of IDC. It can be put into production while building, and deployed as needed by the increase of customer demand.

The rapid deployment of the construction model is in line with IDC's construction needs . Since the micro-module combines all the components, the capacity, size, interface and main technical direction of the micro-module and its functional unit can be standardized, so that the micro-module has the characteristics of industrial productization and standardization. The functional units of the module can be prefabricated and debugged in the factory. In the data center construction site, the workers only need to assemble and connect in a simple way to realize the overall delivery of the micro modules. It is as simple and convenient as building blocks, which can be greatly shortened. The construction period will reduce the construction difficulty and ensure that the project is completed on time, accurately and orderly.

IDC's operation and maintenance is also critical . Here, it must be mentioned that the micro-module integrates two major system components - modular UPS and row-level inverter air conditioner. The modular UPS features on-line hot swap and power module expansion, which greatly reduces maintenance and expansion time. For operators, the unified series of modular UPS, module spare parts can be unified storage, reduce investment, and the engineering management interface of operation and maintenance personnel has become simple, greatly reducing the difficulty of maintenance of the equipment room. In addition, the micro-module uses hot and cold air containment and row-level inverter air conditioning technology to effectively reduce the PUE of the data center. On the one hand, the mixing of the hot and cold airflow in the equipment room avoided by the airflow suppression makes the return air temperature of the precision air conditioner rise, thereby improving the refrigeration efficiency of the air conditioner; on the other hand, the row-level inverter air conditioner, the near-end refrigeration, and the air conditioner can be based on the surrounding IT. The heat load of the cabinet adjusts the cooling capacity in real time, thereby achieving accurate cooling, reducing air conditioning energy consumption, and eliminating local hot spots in the equipment room. For the full life cycle expenditure of the IDC room, the electricity cost accounts for more than 60% of the total expenditure, so the reduction of PUE can greatly reduce the operating cost of the machine room.

With the evolution of micro-module technology and the continuous expansion of the IDC market, we have reason to believe that the modular data center construction model will gradually replace the traditional construction model and become the preferred solution for operators to transform IDC services.
