Huawei was awarded the Kazakhstan Temir Zholy (KTZ) contract by Kazakhstan Railway, to design and deploy a Data Center (DC) solution. Huawei was able to get the contract thanks to its long-standing expertise in the area of implementing railway ICT solutions.

The Data Center (DC) solution designed for Kazakhstan’s Rail operator KTZ and TransTelecom, which is responsible for KTZ national railway communication network, consists of a number of Fusion Servers, data storage and networking components enabling them to efficiently address the ever growing demand for data payload from their day to day rail operation.

The core of this high-performance data processing and storage solution consists of Huawei’s FusionServers RH5885H, a next-generation 4U rack server specifically engineered to meet the most stringent requirements from a railway operator in regards to reliability and processing power. Huawei’s servers consist of processors with up to 96 cores and 6 TB memory capacity, boosting performance and overall reliability.

The solution designed for Kazakhstan is specifically built for mission-critical applications, such as databases, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Business Intelligence (BI), Big Data, and virtualization.

Alongside the economic advantages which come with a single supplier End to End solution, Huawei’s DC solution is providing the customer with benefits such as High Specification Storage with the potential to grow and the ability to form an active-active cluster without the need for further gateways securing the customer’s long term Capital investment. The solution contracted by KTZ/TTC will allow KTZ to implement a state of the art asset management process that will reduce operational costs and improve overall efficiency.
