Huawei releases boundless computing strategy and solutions
Jul 7, 2017
Beijing, China, July 6, 2017: Today, Huawei released the Boundless Computing server strategy and series solutions in Beijing. The strategy focuses on industries' requirements for digital transformation, and outlines Huawei's next 5-year innovation roadmap for computing. The release underscores Huawei's commitment to creating greater, tangible value for its customers. Huawei delivered a systematic interpretation of the server strategy and business positioning. Also at the release ceremony, Huawei launched the V5 series solutions. The solutions include the all-flash SAP HANA appliance solution, big data application acceleration solution, edge computing for smart video analytics solution, and G series heterogeneous computing platform.
The computing industry has now arrived at a new starting point. Artificial intelligence (AI) applications are driving rapid development of heterogeneous computing, and the focus of cloud-based data centers is shifting from efficiency to higher smartness. Digital transformation across various industries is producing an exploding number of connected smart terminals. All these changes are calling for a rethinking about the computing model. This requires stakeholders to think outside the traditional box. They need to look beyond the server business, plunge into the depths of data centers, and all the way down to the source of data, thereby shattering the walls preventing further improvement of computing performance. Huawei calls this rethinking The Boundless Computing, which will be an integral factor underpinning a smart society.
Boundless computing includes optimizing computing for applications and bringing computing closer to data sources, to unleash the full potential of computing. It also includes pushing beyond the boundary of servers, and enabling DC-level resource pooling and on-demand provisioning, to boost the overall computing efficiency of data centers. Moreover, it requires going beyond the boundary of data centers, enabling smart access, and taking computing even into the data sources, in this way, to smarten up data at the remote end. Huawei vows to continuously invest heavily in server R&D and create greater value for customers.
At the release ceremony, Huawei, along with customers and partners including Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), Tencent, SAP, and Microsoft, discussed the challenges to current computing development and the countermeasures. They jointly released the Huawei FusionServer V5 with Five Major Smart Features, the big data application acceleration solution, all-flash SAP HANA appliance solution, G series heterogeneous computing platforms, and edge computing for smart video analytics solution.
