Enterprise networking vendor Huawei has introduced its latest FusionServer V3 series servers using Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors.
The main target of Huawei FusionServer will be enterprise CIOs who are planning to spend on Big Data, cloud computing, virtualization, and mission-critical enterprise applications.
At the 2014 Huawei Cloud Congress (HCC2014), Qiu Long, general manager of the server sector with Huawei’s IT product line, introduced the future-proof service-driven infrastructure (SDI) for the first time.
Huawei was ranked fourth worldwide and second in China for server shipments in the second quarter of 2014.
In fact, Huawei maintains the fourth place in global server shipments for four consecutive quarters since Q3, 2013.
“To achieve this goal, we need to decouple computing, storage, and network architectures and integrate various resources into shared resource pools to configure resources on demand,” said Qiu Long.
Huawei has developed SDI for cloud data centers, which is different from the traditional software + standard server infrastructure. SDI consists of the software-defined storage (SDS), software-defined networking (SDN), software modules, and hardware modules.
Huawei launched its FusionServer solutions with the mission to build open, converged, innovative IT infrastructure for cloud data centers – focusing on high performance, reliability, energy efficiency, and agile computing.
Huawei said X6800 server is the best infrastructure for cloud data centers. The X6800 server architecture is optimized specifically for applications such as SDS, Big Data, and SDI to apply to various services and address ever-changing service demands.
The company’s FusionServer V3 servers include RH1288 V3, RH2285 V3, and RH2288 V3 rack servers for mission-critical enterprise services.
CH121 V3, CH220 V3, CH222 V3, and CH242 V3 server nodes on E9000 converged infrastructure blade servers.
