The new strategic cooperation agreement will see the two companies doing joint research with the aim of creating high-efficiency and professional data center solutions to solve problems of operation and maintenance of data centers and smart buildings.

The pair say in an era of information explosion, with the size and reach of data centers and server rooms increasing ‘on a massive scale’ there is demand for a unified, efficient, safe, reliable management system for data centers – something they say they aim to address.

The deal is not limited to collaboration on specific projects and enables cooperation on technical innovation.
