New FusionServer series runs on Intel Xeon Scalable Processors
Huawei has announced that its latest-generation FusionServer series of servers, the FusionServer V5, is now available in South Africa. This server is designed to power digital transformation in the enterprise. The FusionServer V5 series servers run on the Intel Xeon Scalable Processors.
In an era when hybrid IT deployment is common for data centres and clouds, new types of workloads continue to emerge from applications such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and graphics processing. General-purpose, or universal, computing and heterogeneous computing are both common means of computation in such a context. The latest-generation Huawei FusionServer series has been deeply optimised for new, as well as traditional workloads, with a full range of support for the Intel Xeon Scalable Processors.
"Enterprise digital transformation is advancing into greater depths, engaging more and more industries,” Ahtasham Rabbani, Director of Marketing Operations of the Huawei IT Product Line. "Service workloads are increasingly diversified, accompanied by changes that are faster than ever before. Higher computing efficiency and agility are the new drivers for computing industry innovations."
Huawei’s FusionServer portfolio includes modular servers, such as the traditional 2-socket (2S) to 8-socket (8S) rack servers, X series high-density servers, and E series blade servers, as well as the G series heterogeneous computing platform. This lineup of innovative servers continues to turbocharge computing efficiency from the service workload and deployment mode perspectives, meeting enterprises' requirements for boosting productivity and driving down costs in hybrid IT deployments. Additionally, the new servers offer leading-edge features that enable easy management and energy efficiency options to help enterprises consistently slash operations and maintenance (O&M) costs.
The latest-generation FusionServer series also support various hard drive configuration options, like all-NVMe SSD or mixed hard drive configurations. The servers have been enhanced in both storage density and performance, and support rich LAN on motherboard (LOM) network options to help simplify network deployment and management. The servers can be combined with other Huawei solutions, such as hybrid cloud and edge computing, to achieve higher computing efficiency. Additionally, Huawei has enhanced the integration of its eSight Server management software, which brings new levels of convenience and efficiency with an automated, smart management system for devices.
According to the 2017 Q4 global server market report released by Gartner, Huawei servers recorded 5% year-on-year (YoY) growth by overall shipment volume, ranking No. 3 globally. Huawei has also seen an 8.2% YoY growth in its server sales revenue. With the availability of the latest-generation servers in South Africa, Huawei is positioned to enable and catalyse the digital transformation process for local enterprises.
