Three IT Transformations,
Driving Ethernet Evolution for DCNs

As enterprises' digital transformation gains momentum, data has become a key production factor. Data centers are responsible for data computing, storage, and forwarding, and therefore are the most critical digital infrastructure for new infrastructure construction. The IT architecture, computing units, and storage media of data centers are undergoing significant changes, driving data center networks to evolve from multi-protocol to all-Ethernet.

  • IT architecture
    Server Ethernet interconnection
  • Computing unit
    PCIe is replaced
    CPU/GPU Ethernet interconnection
  • Storage media
    All-flash storage Ethernet interconnection

Huawei's CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged Data Center Network Solution helps build a next-generation hyper-converged data center network. This helps enterprises gain true insights from transient data, accelerate digital transformation, and drive the development of the digital economy. Currently, this solution has been widely recognized by more than 12,000 customers worldwide.
