China has 1.73 million square kilometers of desertified land, accounting for 18% of the total land area. People have been exploring the methods of desert control.
In the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Alashan League Ulan Buhe Desert,
Here, experts use sensors to record plant and environmental data, establish AI model, and analyze the best way to improve desert ecology. At present, at least 1 t (about 1 million M) of data will be generated every day. It will take months or even a year to process with a top computer.
According to the plan, after the planting scale of Inner Mongolia base is expanded, 60000 sensors are needed. It will produce more than 1.5 million data and more than 50 P (about 50000 T) of data storage in a year. It is unrealistic to rely on computers to process them.
For this reason, Tencent cloud has customized the edge data center nano block for the research project of desertification soil. 2 meters wide, 1.2 meters long and 2.2 meters high, it looks like a plus version of the double door refrigerator.
This is the first single cabinet data center with natural cooling in China, including power distribution, air conditioning, security, fire protection, it equipment and other data center functions.
The traditional data that takes 4 months to analyze can be calculated in 1 hour with this cabinet, and the efficiency is increased by more than 2000 times.
It is not only powerful in performance, but also stable and reliable. Nano T-block can operate normally in severe weather from - 45 ℃ to 55 ℃.
Tencent revealed that the nano T-block is no problem whether it is opened in the desert or the South Pole. It not only supports remote control, but also has its own intelligent operation and maintenance capability, without professional maintenance. According to the surrounding environment, the number of air conditioning, power supply equipment and other operating parameters can be adjusted.
