Construire l’avenir avec des centres de données intelligents

S’appuyant sur un concept intelligent et modulaire, Huawei cherche à construire des centres de données simples, verts, intelligents, fiables et à faible émission de carbone en reconstruisant quatre aspects clés des installations : l’architecture, les systèmes de refroidissement, l’exploitation et la maintenance, et l’alimentation électrique.

Engagée envers l’innovation technologique, Huawei a été reconnue par les clients, les partenaires et le jury des DCS Awards, et a été nommée meilleur fournisseur de centres de données pour 2021.

Huawei Data Center Facility Named Data Centre Facilities Vendor of the Year

Avec des résultats exceptionnels sur le plan de la performance des produits et des services, les solutions de centre de données de Huawei sont largement reconnues et sont utilisées mondialement par des opérateurs, des fournisseurs d’accès Internet (FAI), des gouvernements et des entreprises dans divers secteurs, notamment les transports, les finances, la fabrication et l’énergie. Global Switch, par exemple, l’un des principaux opérateurs et exploitants de centres de données neutres vis-à-vis du cloud, a choisi de collaborer avec Huawei sur plusieurs projets clés. Dans le cadre de la modernisation de son centre de données Paris East, Global Switch a déployé la solution d’alimentation sans interruption SmartLi de Huawei, construisant un système d’alimentation et de distribution du courant à haute densité, efficace, sécurisé et fiable. Le projet a valu à l’entreprise le prix du Projet de consolidation, de mise à niveau et de renouvellement des centres de données de l’année aux DCS Awards de cette année.

Des innovation et percées technologiques en continu

Compte tenu de l’urgence renouvelée autour des objectifs de neutralité carbone, il est désormais impératif de construire des centres de données écologiques, économes en énergie et efficaces. Huawei se concentre depuis longtemps sur les innovations qui permettent d’économiser de l’énergie et de réduire la consommation énergétique afin d’améliorer l’efficacité des centres de données. La solution Smart Converged FusionPower6000 et la solution de refroidissement par évaporation indirecte de nouvelle génération de Huawei sont de bons exemples d’innovations technologiques qui rendent les centres de données plus efficaces. C’est pourquoi elles ont été nommées, respectivement, Innovation de l’année pour l’alimentation des centres de données de l’année et Innovation de l’année pour le refroidissement des centres de données aux DCS Awards 2021.

La solution Smart Converged FusionPower6000 de Huawei combine un nouveau niveau d’intégration technologique, alliant haute densité et grande efficacité, avec un déploiement simplifié et une sécurité et une fiabilité renforcées. Par rapport aux systèmes d’alimentation et de distribution de courant plus traditionnels, la solution de Huawei fait passer l’efficacité d’alimentation du système à liaison complète de 94,5 % à 97,8 %, permettant de diminuer considérablement la consommation d’énergie tout en réduisant l’empreinte physique de plus de 40 %. Pour ce qui est de l’exploitation et l’entretien, l’introduction de l’intelligence artificielle (IA) transforme la maintenance en la rendant proactive et prédictive.

La solution de refroidissement par évaporation indirecte de Huawei maximise l’utilisation des sources de refroidissement naturelles en offrant un refroidissement continu et ininterrompu grâce à une nouvelle innovation industrielle : la fusion à froid. Dans un centre de données à Beijing, le passage de systèmes de refroidissement à eau réfrigérée traditionnels à la nouvelle solution de Huawei a réduit de 32 % les besoins énergétiques du site, tout en diminuant de 33 % sa consommation d’eau. En outre, le système d’optimisation de l’efficacité énergétique par IA de Huawei, iCooling, améliore l’efficacité énergétique (PUE) de 8 %.

Le succès de Huawei aux DCS Awards 2021 témoigne de l’investissement réalisé par l’entreprise dans la convergence des technologies et des produits, ainsi que dans l’innovation des centres de données. À long terme, l’entreprise continuera sur la même voie, se concentrant sur l’innovation afin de construire des solutions de centres de données simples, écologiques, intelligentes et fiables.

La responsabilité sociale, une priorité pour POWERCHINA en Afrique

PÉKIN, 2 novembre 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Les projets de POWERCHINA en Afrique ne peuvent se concevoir sans un fort sens des obligations qui en découlent envers les Africains.

La filiale zambienne de POWERCHINA est présente sur le terrain depuis plus de deux décennies et a toujours fait de la responsabilité sociale sa priorité, qu’il s’agisse de contribuer au développement socioéconomique du pays en s’y approvisionnant et en embauchant du personnel local tout en le formant, ou de s’engager dans des actions caritatives et d’aide lorsque la Zambie traverse des moments difficiles.

La pandémie de COVID-19 n’a pas épargné l’Afrique et POWERCHINA a dès le début non seulement pris toutes les mesures nécessaires pour assurer la sécurité et le bien-être de ses employés locaux, mais a aussi fait des dons. Sa filiale ougandaise a par exemple fait don d’équipements de communication d’urgence et d’une somme de 50 millions de shillings ougandais (14 085 dollars) en espèces. C’est l’illustration vivante et sincère de la fraternité qui unit depuis de nombreuses décennies les peuples de Chine et d’Afrique et qui s’exprime de manière concrète pour combattre le virus.

POWERCHINA prend ainsi à cœur sa responsabilité sociale partout en Afrique où ses projets la conduisent. Ainsi, à Maurice, le 25 juillet 2020, un pétrolier s’était échoué, menaçant la côte d’une marée noire. La filiale mauricienne de POWERCHINA a envoyé 14 membres de son personnel pour effectuer les opérations préventives et deux semaines plus tard, plus de 1 000 m de barrages flottants et 100m2 de filets de sécurité avaient été installés.

Au Mozambique, enfin, la veille de la Journée internationale des enfants, fin mai 2019, la filiale locale de POWERCHINA a fait don de ballons de ballons, de cartables, de cahiers et de stylos à l’École primaire Sunshine Coast. Un mois plus tôt, la même filiale avait terminé une route menant à cette école. Au début de cette année-là, les habitants de Beira, une ville portuaire, avaient eux aussi bénéficié de l’aide de POWERCHINA suite à un puissant cyclone tropical et de fortes précipitations ininterrompues. Des techniciens chinois et des véhicules d’urgence s’étaient rendus dans les zones touchées pour y effectuer des opérations de sauvetage et rétablir la circulation routière. La filiale de POWERCHINA dans ce pays avait d’ailleurs récolté 30 000 dollars auprès d’entreprises chinoises afin de fournir un soutien financier aux personnes touchées.

La responsabilité sociale de POWERCHINA contribue ainsi à sa manière à l’établissement d’une communauté de destin Chine-Afrique.

Social Responsibility is a Top Priority for POWERCHINA in Africa

BEIJING, Nov. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — A report from China Report:

POWERCHINA Uganda Branch donates epidemic prevention and control materials on April 8, 2020

Without POWERCHINA’s strong sense of responsibility to the African people, its projects in Africa would be nonexistent.

POWERCHINA Zambia Branch has been present in this land for more than 20 years, always putting its social responsibility first, such as buying local goods and materials, hiring and training local people to promote social and economic development, as well as initiating charitable activities and providing assistance when Zambia was going through difficult times.

When Africa was not immune to COVID-19, POWERCHINA took all necessary steps to ensure the personal and property safety of local employees, as well as made donations, from the outset. For example, its Uganda Branch donated emergency communications equipment and UGS 50 million in cash (EUR 14,085). This was a vivid and sincere example of the brotherhood between the Chinese and African peoples over the decades, which became even more real in the fight against the epidemic.

POWERCHINA has kept its social responsibility in mind in its projects across Africa. On July 25, 2020, an oil tanker ran aground off the coast of Mauritius, spilling fuel oil that posed a threat to the marine environment. POWERCHINA Mauritius Branch dispatched 14 of its staff to carry out preventive operation and two weeks later, they installed containment boom with more than 1,000 meters long and a safety net covering an area of more than 100 square meters.

In addition, at the end of May 2019, the day before International Children’s Day to be exact, POWERCHINA’s local branch in Mozambique donated balloons, school bags, notebooks and pens to Sunshine Coast Primary School. A month later, the company completed a road to the school. At the beginning of that year, residents of Beira the port city, who were hit by a severe tropical hurricane and continued heavy rainfall, were also assisted by POWERCHINA. At that time, Chinese technicians and emergency vehicles rushed to the affected areas to carry out rescue operations and restored road traffic. Furthermore, POWERCHINA Mozambique Branch also raised USD 30,000 from Chinese enterprises to provide financial support to local affected people.

POWERCHINA has earnestly fulfilled its social responsibility and contributed to the building of China-Africa community with a shared future in its own way.

Razak Opoku lauds Veep Bawumia for contributions to digital economy

Accra,- Mr Razak Kojo Opoku, a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has commended Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for playing a pivotal role in the development of digital economy.

 

” Before he came on the scene the country political class knew very little about transforming our architecture as well as expanding the capacity of the Ghanaian economy through the practical applications of technology.”

 

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Tuesday, Mr Razak Opoku said the economic management team of the past government limited themselves to addressing the indicators of the economy such as inflation rate, policy rate, exchange rate, foreign direct investments, remittance, consumer price index, to determine the success or failure of their governments.

 

“The same could be said about other governments since independence in terms of managing the country’s economy. But just managing the economic indicators will never be useful in helping us to achieve the ‘Ghana Beyond Aid’ agenda”.

 

He said Dr. Bawumia through technology had changed Ghana’s economic narrative, using digitalization as the major and powerful comprehensive policy of ensuring, Modernization of the Ghanaian Economy, Expansion of the Ghanaian Economy, Security and Safety of Ghanaians and Accurate and Up-to-date Reliable Data of the people, and all resources of the Country.

 

“The other digitalisation measures are Equitable Distribution of the Country’s resources, Proper Planning, Strategy and well-informed decisions for successful implementation, Investor Confidence Creation of thousands of digital and tech entrepreneurs, Effective and efficient management of all the indicators of the Ghanaian Economy and Accountability, reducing waste of resources and minimizing corruption.

 

He said Dr. Bawumia’s digitalization policy was the utmost driving force and backbone to all the successful implementation of government agencies policies and programmes.

 

“He has strategically blended digitalization with political economy and the traditional economy to help Ghana to position itself competitively in the league of advanced world-class economies such as the United States, Europe, Japan, North America, China and the successful Arab nations.

 

“Let’s all rally behind Dr. Bawumia in his quest to positively change the face of the Ghanaian economy”.

Article 34 of the Protocol of Ratification stipulates that “at the time of ratification of this Protocol or any time thereafter, the State shall make a declaration accepting the competence of the African Court to receive cases under Article 5(3) of this Protocol.

 

“The African Court shall not receive any petition under article 5(3) involving a State which has not made such a declaration.”

 

Article 5(3) states: “The African Court may entitle relevant Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) with observer status before the Commission, and individuals to institute cases directly before it, in accordance with article 34(6) of this Protocol.

 

Ghana’s position was affirmed on Monday by Mr Kwame Anyimadu-Antwi, Chairperson, Constitutional Committee on Legal and Parliamentary Affairs of Parliament, who is part of Ghana’s delegation at the International Conference on the Implementation and Impact of Decisions of the African Court in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

 

He noted that as sign of commitment to the African Court, Ghana signed the declaration on February 9, 2011, and deposited it on March 10th, 2011 to allow Ghanaian citizens and non-governmental organisations to file cases at the African Court.

 

Ghana has been joined by five others African Countries namely Burkina Faso, The Gambia, Mali, Malawi, and Tunisia to have taken the bold step to accept the authority of the African Court.

 

Contributing to discussion on the implementation of African Court’s decision, experiences from the legislature; Mr Anyimadu-Antwi noted that Ghana as demonstration of its commitment to the African Court has implemented judgements against the state; “in fact in all the cases that Ghana was dragged to the African Court, the nation worn.

 

“It was only one case where an interlocutory order drew a bit of hiccups but the nation worn the substantive case”.

 

Justice Emmanuel Yonny Kulendi a Justice of the Supreme Court of Ghana, contributing to the discussion, noted that there was a fundamental challenge to the structure of the African Court and called for review.

 

He said for AU Member States to be committed in the implementation of the African Court’s decision, “we must check the structures that establishes it”.

 

Only 31 Member States have currently ratified the Protocol establishing the African Court out of these, only the six States have accepted the competence of the African Court according to its Act. 34 (6), according to which individuals and NGOs can directly file cases to the African Court.

 

In the absence of such a Declaration, the application must be submitted to the Banjul Commission first, which may then – after preliminary examination – decide to refer the case to the Court.

Tema,- Mrs Lucille Hewlett Annan, Greater Accra Regional Director, National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has reaffirmed the commitment of the Commission working in collaboration with National Security to empower Ghanaians to stand for National Peace.

 

“In order to achieve National peace, we must learn to coexist irrespective of our cultural backgrounds and languages to not bring in any misunderstandings, which could degenerate into conflicts,” Mrs Annan stated at a workshop organised by the Tema Metropolitan NCCE Directorate.

 

She said it is the mandate of the Commission to work towards the promotion and sustenance of our democracy while inculcating in the Ghanaian citizenry, the awareness of their rights and obligations, through civic education.

Youth urged to consume positive contents on the internet

Nkwanta (O/R),– Madam Mabel Akutey, Secretary of the David Naboare Foundation, has called on the youth in the Nkwanta South Municipality to be conscious of their activities on the internet especially the text, image and video contents they receive or send to others.

 

She said they should check the sources of these internet content and be certain that sharing them would not harm or affect anyone as well as put them in danger.

 

Madam Akutey addressing about 80 youth participants from the Mist Senior High School, Smart Start Academy and some community member in the Municipality as part of the 2021 Global Media and Information Literacy Week celebrations, added that there was the need for the youth to be made aware of the laws against false online publications.

 

As part of the event, a Media and Information Literacy (MIL) film series titled: “Rumours” was premiered to give the participants an insight into how vices such as disinformation, hate speech and viral sexually explicit videos affected people both online and offline.

 

The film is a production spearheaded by Penplusbytes with support from DW Akademie and is also expected to be premiered in the Greater Accra, Ashanti, Central and Northern regions.

 

Penplusbytes is a non-profit organisation that has been leading and implementing media and information literacy projects in Ghana aimed at developing the competencies of young persons aged between 15 to 35 years.

 

Madam Juliet Amoah, Executive Director of Penplusbytes, noted that “the theme for this year’s Global MIL Week – “Media and Information Literacy for the Public Good” was apt as they focused on how the global community could use the week-long celebration to build MIL as key to a vision of information as a public good.

 

She said there was a growing need within the MIL space in Ghana for stakeholder cooperation, adding that some great works had been done over the years within the space, but everyone seemed to be working in silos.

 

“This year, our key activities will seek to enhance these collaborations that ensure a concerted effort towards using credible information to promote national development.”

 

Madam Amoah said activities to mark the week-long global celebration included an opening ceremony and exhibition, training, an academic conference and the premiering of the MIL film series “Rumours” throughout the country.
