Dubai Airports has unveiled Tier III certified Modular Data Centre Complex (MDCC) at Dubai International Airport.

Developed in close collaboration with enterprise technology specialist Huawei, the complex was constructed over a period of 400 days.

Michael Ibbitson, executive vice president, said: "With over 240,000 passengers and 1,100 flights per day, zero downtime and hundreds of internal and external systems to manage, high reliability and resilience are critical requirements for Dubai Airports’ business technology infrastructure.

“This centre boosts our operational efficiency and powers our ability to grow, innovate and enhance the customer experience.”

As the first of two planned modular facilities, the site holds a pre-fabricated data centre boasting the latest next-gen technologies designed to support smart operations and intelligent management platforms.

Following the completion of the second complex, the two facilities will operate in tandem through a dedicated fibre optic link.

Alaa ElShimy, managing director and vice president, Huawei Enterprise Middle East said, “Huawei is proud to have worked with Dubai Airports to deliver this exceptional facility. It is one of the most advanced and unique Tier III certified data centres in the world that will ensure highest levels of availability, maintainability, resiliency and seamless business continuity.”
