[Beijing, China, April 4, 2019] Huawei Intelligent Computing held a launch ceremony in Beijing themed "+Intelligence, Taking Computing to New Levels", and officially released its FusionServer Pro intelligent servers running on the second-generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and the Intel® Optane™ DC-grade persistent memory.
FusionServer Pro is optimized for novel and traditional workloads, and takes the computing game up a notch in terms of computing/storage architecture, network optimization, intelligent acceleration, and intelligent management. FusionServer Pro features a number of highlights:
Supports the 2nd-generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, with an up to 40% performance boost over the previous-generation chipset platform.
Supports the Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory. The 4-socket server supports a memory capacity up to 15 TB, greatly improving memory capacity and data reliability for in-memory computing scenarios.
Supports all-NVMe SSDs and hybrid configuration of hard drives; supports tiered data deployment, enhancing storage density and performance.
Provides various GE and 10GE LAN on motherboard (LOM) ports, simplifying network deployment and management.
Supports various intelligent accelerator components, such as intelligent network interface cards (iNICs), intelligent SSDs, FPGA accelerator cards, and AI accelerator cards, delivering ultimate service experience.
Incorporates the FusionDirector intelligent management software, greatly improving data center intelligence and management efficiency.
Built for future-facing service workloads, the Huawei new-generation servers aim to achieve optimal efficiency and cost-effectiveness. The servers are designed to meet diversified enterprise requirements and enable industry-leading intelligent management and energy efficiency, continuously reducing O&M costs and bringing tangible benefits to customers.
Huawei launches new high-density storage servers
Huawei also launched two new storage servers: FusionServer 2298 V5 and 5298 V5. The new storage servers aim to provide large-room and cost-effective storage for customers such as Internet companies, enterprises, and carriers. These servers are applicable to distributed storage scenarios, big data analytics, software-defined storage, video, backup and archiving, and other storage-intensive scenarios such as warm/cold data storage.
The 2298 V5 supports up to 24 3.5'' and 4 2.5'' hard drives (up to 4 NVMe SSDs) in a 2U space, offering near 400 TB storage capacity. The 5298 V5 supports up to 72 3.5'' and 4 2.5'' hard drives (up to 4 NVMe SSDs) in a 4U space, providing over 1 PB storage capacity. The storage capacity of these two models is respectively 40% and 60% up compared with that of incumbent Huawei storage servers. The two products feature ultra-high density, superb performance, easy maintenance, convenient management, and high expandability.
