Huawei, New Ethernet CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged2021-03-31
Huawei Launches the Latest CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged Data Center Network Solution, Unleashing Computing Power with New Ethernet
At the Huawei Industrial Digital Transformation Conference 2021, Huawei unveiled its latest CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper Converged Data Center Network Solution. This future-proof solution is ideal for creating lossless computing and storage networks based entirely on Ethernet architecture and is designed to unleash 100% of computing power. In addition, as an L3 autonomous driving network trendsetter, this solution also stands out by offering full lifecycle network automation and network-wide intelligent O&M, reducing OPEX by up to 30% and leveraging smart upgrades for businesses.
“The data center stores large amounts of valuable data. Data is the main production factor of the smart world. During the digitalization of businesses, we need to use data at all times, so data needs are stored and transmitted efficiently,” said Kevin Hu, Head of Huawei’s Data Communications Product Line. To this end, it should cooperate at a high level in storage and network data centers. “
He continued: “Most of the storage devices are all flash and more services are moving to the cloud. With these changes, data center networks are transforming towards all Ethernet. However, traditional Ethernet is now how to eliminate network problems caused by packet loss. These are computing power and as well as data losses, complex service deployment and network O&M. “
To address these challenges, Huawei launched its latest CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper Converged Data Center Network Solution. The following are just a few of the innovations that set this solution apart from the competition:
Ethernet for High Performance Computing: Eliminates Ethernet Packet Loss and Reveals 100% of Computing Power
Huawei introduced an intelligent lossless (iLossless) algorithm to network connectivity that dynamically adjusts parameter settings according to real-time network traffic status to enable zero packet loss in data center networks and maximize computing power.
Active-Active All-Ethernet Storage Network: Provides Long-Range Lossless Transmission over Ethernet and Increases Active-Active Storage Performance
Huawei has taken an important step forward in long-distance data transmission by announcing the iLossless-DCI algorithm, which increases lossless transmission distances on Ethernet to a maximum of 70 km. Compared to traditional storage networks, this feature-rich active-active all Ethernet storage network improves IOPS by more than 80%.
Full Lifecycle Network Automation: Implements NaaS and Service Delivery in Seconds
Huawei’s CloudFabric 3.0 also innovates with 3D modeling, which enables automatic design and optimum recommendation of network solutions through multidimensional, comprehensive optimal solving. The resulting benefits include NaaS, service provisioning in seconds and full lifecycle network intelligence covering network planning, construction, maintenance and optimization.
Network-Wide Intelligent Operation and Maintenance: Provides Faulty Self-Healing and Provides 24/7 Always-On Services
Huawei also pioneered a new wave of smart O&M across the network by adding information graphics to data center networks, applying rapid fault finding in minutes and proactive prediction of up to 97% of network risks. Huawei’s CloudFabric 3.0 provides 24/7 always-on services, enabling a beneficial transformation from passive to proactive O&M, thanks to its network-wide intelligent O&M capabilities.
This latest data center network solution is built on joint innovation between Huawei and the industry’s leading global customers. Looking ahead, the energetic trend of digitalization is truly revolutionizing networks. To keep up with its pace, Huawei will continue to improve its networking capabilities to maximize computing power and provide smart upgrades for organizations of all sizes. To date, Huawei’s data center network solutions have been deployed in more than 12,000 data centers worldwide, providing optimum services to a wide range of industries including finance, government, ISP, manufacturing and energy.
