Huawei Launches CloudFabric 2.0 Solution, Leading Data Center Networks into the Intelligence Era


[Shenzhen, China, May 20, 2020] At the Huawei Global Analyst Summit (HAS) 2020 recently held in Shenzhen, Huawei launched its CloudFabric 2.0 Data Center Network Solution, an upgraded solution that delivers high-density 400GE super capacity, zero-packet-loss intelligent experience, and autonomous driving, leading data center networks into the intelligence era.

“With the pervasive use of AI across industries, enterprise data centers that carry a large number of mission-critical services are evolving into the brains of enterprises,” said Leon Wang, President of Huawei's Data Center Network Domain. “We're stepping into an intelligence era with data as the key production factor. Data center networks are facing a series of challenges, such as 10-fold surges in data volume, packet-loss-induced computing power loss, and delayed TTM and fault rectification.”

Huawei CloudFabric 2.0 solution copes with these challenges using the following key capabilities:

• Super capacity: New Huawei CloudEngine data center switches support 48-port 400GE line cards with the highest per-slot density in the industry, resulting in a chassis with six times the industry average switching capacity. The switches also provide full compatibility with 10GE, 40GE, 100GE, and 400GE, implementing smooth evolution.

• Intelligent experience: Huawei has upgraded its AI-based iLossless algorithm to implement dynamic congestion control and real-time closed-loop adjustment of queue scheduling based on the actual network traffic status. This ensures zero data packet loss and optimal network performance in real time, as well as fully unleashing computing power.

• Autonomous driving: Based on Huawei's latest autonomous driving network management and control system — iMaster NCE-Fabric — the solution implements the industry's first L3 autonomous driving data center network, improves the deployment efficiency three-fold in Day 0 (planning and design), reduces configuration errors by 40% in Day 1 (service provisioning), and implements real-time network health evaluation and "1-3-5" troubleshooting in Day N (operation management), moving towards autonomy and self-healing.

Leon Wang continued, “Data is increasingly becoming an important strategic resource and a new production factor, and AI has become ubiquitous in multiple phases of data processing. As such, we have upgraded our CloudFabric solution to build ultra-broadband, lossless, and fully intelligent data center networks, helping enterprises mine intelligence from data, accelerate digital transformation, and promote digital economy development.”

In summary, this release is not only the upgrade of Huawei's solution, but also a joint innovation between Huawei and leading customers in the finance, Internet, and carrier industries. Adhering to the concept of leading data center networks into the intelligence era, Huawei data center network products and solutions have already served more than 9200 customers worldwide, and will continue to strive to create more value for customers.
