Background and Customer Demands
Nowadays, new-generation communication technologies such as 5G mobile communication, AI, and IoT are changing people’s way of life and production models. New industries are developing rapidly, which also drive the development of the global data center industry. In recent years, the global data center market grew dramatically. Governments of many countries have realized the necessity of building national data centers and even regarded data center construction as a national strategy.
ZTE national data center solution, based on modular data center, is a fully-modularized solution that features continuous integration and rapid elastic scaling. It virtualizes and pools basic infrastructure resources (including computing, storage, network bandwidth, security, and database resources), and performs unified management of physical and virtual resources based on the cloud architecture. The solution can manage the whole life cycle of cloud services and monitor and maintain the cloud platform in a unified manner, so that resources can be dynamically distributed, redistributed, and reclaimed. According to user’s scenarios, ZTE can provide a customized solution by combining different modules and make quick delivery. The elastic, flexible, efficient, and safe data center solution can support users to carry out all kinds of businesses, meet user requirements for low cost, quick delivery, and on-demand deployment, and provide differentiated service portals and all-round security policies to ensure efficient and stable operation of the cloud computing platform.
●ZTE cloud data center solution uses ZTE-developed computing, storage, and network virtualization components and the OpenStack cloud management platform components to build the cloud computing infrastructure. For active-active architecture, the cloud application and service platform iSware can be deployed to manage, deploy, and monitor applications in the active-active way.
●In many countries and regions, ZTE provides basic cloud service, government service, collaborative office service, and public service solutions based on the cloud data center platform for different industry scenarios.
●ZTE provides cloud resources leasing service for special offline customers to realize rapid delivery and on-demand deployment of private cloud businesses and ensure information security.
