Shenzhen, China, February 26, 2013]: Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, announced that its cloud operating system, FusionSphere, scored a 3895 on SPECvirt_sc2010, the world’s most authoritative performance evaluation benchmark. The evaluation results outscored the mainstream cloud operating systems due to its world-leading virtualization performance.
FusionSphere is an innovative cloud operating system developed independently by Huawei. It features powerful virtualization capabilities and resource pool management, and provides multiple components, tools, open O&M and management application programming interfaces (APIs). FusionSphere can facilitate traditional and new enterprise services by significantly boosting O&M efficiency to reduce IT costs. How a product performs on SPECvirt_sc2010, an evaluation body with the highest standards has become a top priority for customers. According to the evaluation results published by the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC), FusionSphere outscored the mainstream cloud operating systems by running a total number of 240 virtual machines and 40 computing blocks.
“Since 2009, Huawei has continuously invested a large number of resources to develop and promote its own cloud operating system,” said Ren Zhipeng, the vice president of Huawei’s cloud computing department. “Now, Huawei’s cloud computing architecture is well-received by customers. FusionSphere’s excellent performance on SPECvirt_sc2010 also demonstrates that it is a definitive platform on which China’s fast-growing information industry can build the next generation of information infrastructure.”
