China-based Huawei has launched FusionServer V5 four-socket servers – powered by the latest Intel Xeon Scalable Processors — at SuperComputing 2017 (SC17).
FusionServer 2488 V5 2U four-socket rack server and FusionServer CH242 V5 full-width four-socket blade can significantly reduce the server node quantity per cluster, which reduces cluster cables by 50 percent and energy consumption by 10 percent.
Huawei FusionServer V5 — powered by four Intel Xeon Scalable Processors — can support up to six TB of memory. It supports all NVMe SSD local storage, 100 Gbit/s InfiniBand and Omni-Path high-speed interconnects.
In addition to FusionServer V5 servers, Huawei showcased the new-generation Atlas intelligent cloud hardware platform, G series heterogeneous servers, and hybrid liquid cooling technology at the trade event.
Huawei said it can provide differentiated HPC cloud platform offerings with computing resource pooling and intelligent orchestration capabilities. These features enable enterprise customers to deploy computing resources within seconds and improve double hardware resource utilization.
“The convergence between HPC and technologies such as big data, AI, and cloud is quickening and poses higher requirements on the hardware, architecture, and software of computing platforms,” said William Dong, vice president of the Data Center Solution Marketing Department of Huawei EBG.
“The Intel Xeon Scalable processor offers the biggest data center platform advancement in a decade, and our close collaboration with global technology leaders, like Huawei, brings powerful new platforms to market to provide researchers and engineers the tools they need to drive breakthrough progress,” said Trish Damkroger, vice president of Technical Computing at Intel.
Huawei servers are ranked No. 3 by shipment volume in Q2 2017, according to Gartner. Huawei servers rank No. 1 by both overall shipment volume and sales revenue in China. 197 of the Fortune Global 500 and 45 of the Top 100 enterprises have selected Huawei as a partner in their digital transformations.
