Cloud Computing Brings Huawei And Intel Together

Cloud Computing Brings Huawei And Intel Together

China’s premium telecommunication manufacturer Huawei has recently joined hands with global computing giant Intel via signing of a MoU, a move that aims at strengthening Huawei’s commitment to provide cutting-edge offerings to its existing and perspective consumer base. The partnership would heighten core mutual engineering collaboration, a step that would bring to the market novel products including servers, storage platforms, data center essentials and most importantly, cloud computing solutions. The cooperation further extends to harmonize long-term objective attainment and cut down product development time-span.

Technology innovation” was described by Zheng Yelai, president at Huawei IT product line, as being the key binding corporate value that has been holding Intel and Huawei together for as long as 10 years now. Huawei’s recent hardware marvel publicized in July, the Tecal V2 server, is powered at its roots by Intel’s Xeon E7 and E5 processor line – a vivid indicative of the duo’s pledge to provide consumers with dependable IT solutions.

Huawei also unveiled its latest cloud-oriented product, the FusionCube Converged Infrastructure in addition to three storage-related offerings.

The FusionCube boasts software support for virtualization and cloud management. The solution can double to serve as a distributed storage engine. Huawei demonstrated hardware interplay and compatibility of the same with other storage options and networked devices. At the heart of the product is the ability to fuse, explained Ren Zhipeng, Vice President of cloud products at Huawei. FusionCube distinguishes itself as a multifunctional management system that is bound to reduce the otherwise inevitable expenditures including IT installation, commissioning and continuance. The FusionCube is all about cloud platform optimization and that as well with expediency and resourcefulness.

Huawei is the first in the industry to provide this kind of solution”, claimed Ren, one that “integrates computing, storage, and networking in a single device.”

The Huawei OceanStor HVS, Universal Distributed Storage System and MVX Big Data Storage Solution were also announced at the congress; offerings that are expected to improve on the previous (utterly popular) cloud storage models offered by Huawei. Fan Ruiqi, president at Huawei’s IT storage division explained that OceanStor HVS, equipped with Smart Matrix Architecture, conforms to the highest of industrial standards and stands out as one of the most adaptive, consistent and efficient cloud storage architectural hardware out there.

While the Chinese manufacturer seems all set to make its mark on the global cloud hardware scene, response in the US might be lukewarm owing to the stained repute as an outcome of ongoing scrutiny over probable spying allegations.

Jawee Sun, in charge of the marketing division, was nothing but positive about the North American market. “It is true the government has a tight grip over America’s big carriers, but the enterprise market in the U.S. is huge and keeps open for Huawei. It is a win-win situation.”

Sun, beaming with optimism, revealed that Huawei has only just secured a $6 million worth of contract with an undisclosed American corporation. This seems very good news for all the cloud zealots out there, since the majority of Chinese firms are known for competitive price quotes. Cloud cost shed awaited.
