BEIJING, April 8, 2019 / PRNewswire / – During today’s press conference titled “+ Intelligence, Taking Computing to New Levels” (Intellect +: New Level of Computing Capabilities), Huawei’s Intelligent Computing Systems Business Unit introduced the line of “smart” servers FusionServer Pro. Thanks to smart acceleration and management systems, as well as solutions for various application scenarios in data centers, these x86 servers of the new generation speed up the process of intelligent data center transformation.

In today’s transformation process, the emphasis from the digital model shifts towards the intellectual. As the main driving force behind this process, the computing industry faces challenges in terms of computing power and control. Huawei’s x86 FusionServer Pro line of servers, characterized by excellent computing resources and a high degree of intellectualization, will provide the industry with the necessary tools to transition to an ecosystem of smart systems.

Such an ecosystem needs an infrastructure consisting of three key components: networking, computing, and the cloud environment. The infrastructure of computing processes and network interaction increases the efficiency of the cloud. And data centers are responsible for most computing tasks. According to Huawei’s Global Industry Vision (GIV) 2025 strategy, by 2025, the distribution rate of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in the corporate environment will reach 86 percent. With the growing intellectualization of the industry, more and more large-scale data centers will be created. To solve the problems listed below, traditional data centers and their server infrastructure require an upgrade:

  • The high cost of standard servers: in recent years, we have seen the continuous emergence of new services. The traditional model of using only the CPU is not the most economical option in certain service scenarios.
  • High data center operating costs: deploying, managing, and maintaining multiple servers in traditional data centers is a very costly process.
  • No L1-L2 connection: in traditional data center air conditioners on L1 and servers on L2 are not interconnected. As a result, the overall energy efficiency of the system is at a fairly low level, and the share of air conditioners accounts for up to 30% of the total electricity object consumed by the center.

To meet the needs of the data center in terms of intellectual transformation, Huawei optimized its FusionServer line by creating FusionServer Pro smart servers and developing multi-level solutions focused on single-site, large-scale and ultra-scale system deployment scenarios.

  • Single Node Scenario: The intelligent acceleration system performs a “reasonable” unloading of computational processes, data warehouses and network protocols, increasing application speed and quality of service while reducing operating costs and accelerating return on investment (ROI).
  • Large-scale scenario: smart acceleration and control systems perform intelligent control over hardware assets, power consumption, system deployment, and troubleshooting, increasing operational and maintenance efficiency and reducing operating costs by 15%.
  • Ultra-scale scenario: in addition to smart acceleration and control systems, it includes three innovative solutions for the data center:
    Intelligent connection L1-L2: this solution provides interaction between air conditioners on L1 and servers on L2, thereby increasing the energy efficiency of the data center.
    Liquid cooling chassis: this energy-saving solution reduces the energy efficiency ratio (PUE) of the data center by 30%. When deploying high-density systems, this solution makes it possible to save 76% of the space in the buildings and 68% of the area of ​​the equipment room. Compared to air-cooled systems, this approach reduces the total cost of ownership by 20%.
    Integrated chassis: this solution enables the rapid deployment of large
