Abu Dhabi Municipality selects Huawei to build its disaster recovery data centre

ADM chose to partner with Huawei to build an uptime TIER- IV municipal disaster recovery data centre


“The sea on the left, the desert on the right” — a perfect description of Abu Dhabi’s unique natural environment. With millions of visitors every year, Abu Dhabi is often, somewhat poetically, described as a bright pearl, glimmering on the south coast of the Arabian Gulf.

“Supporting community happiness through the delivery of sustainable urban growth and municipal services” is the stated vision of ADM. In the age of rapid digital transformation, municipal data centres are key, providing not only government office services but resident information management and municipal services, too. Simply put, data centres are indispensable for community life.

However, ADM’s legacy data centre setup was unable to meet future development requirements, given the influx of vast amounts of new services and a massive increase in data volume. The question of how to improve data reliability, security, and data centre sustainability became an urgent focus for ADM.

Building the best disaster recovery data centre possible with Huawei
Huawei FusionModule2000 (pictured above) was the first data centre to receive Uptime TIER-Ready IV certification. Local construction engineers only needed to carry out simple on-site installation, since this modular data centre is prefabricated in the factory, and it was quickly brought online and ready for use.

Indeed, FusionModule2000 adopts a fully modular design, supporting the sustainable development of municipal services, with flexible capacity expansion possible for a range of subsystems, from power supply to cooling and IT cabinets.

On May 6, 2020, the Uptime Insight officially awarded Uptime TIER- IV design certification to ADM’s municipal disaster recovery data centre.

What does the future hold?
Ahamd Abdulsamad Alhammadi, Acting Director of the technical planning department, Abu Dhabi Municipality, said: “Our digitalisation journey with Huawei has transformed our operations, building more resilience and convenience throughout the Municipality.”

“The TIER IV disaster recovery data centre, jointly built with Huawei, fully demonstrates the industry’s most advanced solutions and impeccable customer service. We are guided in our digitalisation by the vision of the UAE’s leadership to enhance our community through technology. Huawei is our partner of choice and we look forward to future cooperation with them,” he added.

Huawei is a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices. With integrated solutions across four key domains – telecom networks, IT, smart devices, and cloud services – the company is at the forefront of bringing digital to every person, home and organisation for a fully connected, intelligent world.

Huawei’s end-to-end portfolio of products, solutions and services are both competitive and secure. Through open collaboration with ecosystem partners, the company is creating lasting value for our customers, working to empower people, enrich home life, and inspire innovation in organisations of all shapes and sizes.

Innovation that is focused on customer needs
