CloudEngine 1800V Virtual Switch

Huawei CloudEngine 1800V (CE1800V) is a distributed virtual switch designed for virtualized environments in cloud data centers. It provides best-in-class forwarding performance, open architecture, and enhanced security protection. It can run on multiple compute virtualization platforms such as Huawei FusionSphere, VMware ESXi, as well as open-source platforms.

The CE1800V can be combined with Huawei CloudEngine hardware switches and Huawei Agile Controller to offer a Software-Defined Networking (SDN) solution for data centers based on hybrid or host overlays. This solution supports Virtual Machines (VMs), containers, and physical servers with the same architecture.

Key Features

  • High performance: 12 Gbit/s per core, 20% higher than industry average, improving user experience
  • Openness and interoperability: Openflow and OVSDB protocols, interoperability with multiple virtualization platforms; service chain deployment based on IETF NSH
  • Value-added security protection: Value-added services and integrated distributed firewall to protect security on a per VM port basis
