Huawei launches data centre for ADMA-OPCOby Yasmin Helal on Nov 13, 2016
Chinese tech multinational Huawei Technologies has announced the completion of its data centre build for the Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO).
The data centre will replace three existing plants, and is chiefly tasked with processing the extraordinary volume of data received from the exploratory and production facets of ADMA-OPCO’s operations.
Dr. Alaeddin Al-Badawna, chief information officer at ADMA-OPCO, revealed at the inauguration of the CRDC that the new construction anticipates a 30% drop in the company’s operation and maintenance costs.
The ‘Cloud Ready Data Center’ conforms to Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) standards, and features centralised IT resources, with collaborative blade server management and automated resource provisioning. The set-up also features geographic data redundancy, utilising a shadow site at 200km distance.
