NTT Communications’ Hong Kong Financial Data Center Tower 2 (FDC2) project has been shortlisted at the DatacenterDynamics (DCD) Asia Pacific Awards 2016 under the Critical Environment Future Thinking and Service Data Center Provider of the Year categories. The FDC2 is a Tier IV-ready data center that utilizes green thermal management technology powered by Emerson Network Power.
“We are honored to be among the organizations who have been shortlisted for this prestigious award,” said Taylor Man, NTT Com Asia chief technology officer. “The Hong Kong FDC2 was designed to address the growing demands of our customers in Hong Kong and in Asia amid this evolving technology landscape. We set out to build an infrastructure that is not only highly efficient, but is also flexible, cost-effective, and offers the best services to our customers in their journey of digital transformation. With the help of Emerson Network Power’s technology expertise, we were able to achieve just that. We look forward to fostering our partnership with them further in the years to come.”
Situated in a 30,000 square meter land in Tseung Kwan O, the FDC2 boasts of an innovative cooling wall wherein a front-flow cooling system with hot aisle containment keeps power consumption to a minimum while making sure that critical systems are always online. Emerson Network Power said that the system is 20 percent more energy efficient than traditional cooling methods.
“Our thermal management technology is unparalleled in bringing out efficiency through cost and carbon footprint reduction. This innovative and game changing technology is developed in response to today’s industry that demands energy efficiency yet maximum uptime to remain competitive. We congratulate NTT Communications for this great honor,” said Por Lau, managing director of Emerson Network Power in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
