DXB And Huawei To Build World’s First Tier 3 Designed Modular Data Centre


Dubai Airports will partner with Huawei to design and build the world’s first Tier 3 certified modular data centre complex (MDCC) at Dubai International (DXB).

DXB is the world’s busiest international airport, with almost 230,000 passengers passing through per day, growing towards 325,000 per day by 2023, making zero downtime and high reliability a vital requirement for Dubai Airports.

The DXB data centre will be the first of two planned modular facilities that Huawei will build for Dubai Airports. Together, they will operate as a pair of mirrored Tier 3 data centres interconnected through a dedicated fibre optic link that will provide high level resilience and availability to support the critical operations of Dubai Airports.

They will provide a stable and reliable environment for Dubai Airports to host its private cloud. The MDCCs will be the world’s first modular data centres that will be certified by the Uptime Institute to Tier 3 for design and construction, with the first facility to be constructed at Dubai International during 2017.
