China Everbright Bank Chooses Huawei FusionCube
Recently, Huawei FusionCube Hyper-Converged Infrastructure won the bidding for China Everbright Bank’s (CEB) converged architecture level-2 resource pool construction project. CEB has its headquarters in Beijing and is a financial enterprise approved by both the State Council and by People’s Bank of China. CEB ranked 57 in the 105th issue of English magazine, The Banker’s “Top 1000 World Banks”. Due to the bank’s outstanding innovation capabilities and bright performance, CEB was named “Most Innovative Bank of the Year” and won CCTV China’s “Brand of the Year.”
This project involves the deployment of a new resource pool for all CEB branches, implementing a full-scale application of Huawei’s FusionCube hyper-converged infrastructure and FusionSphere virtualization software. CEB’s cloud construction core idea is to consult with the industry’s mainstream cloud computing architects to build CEB’s private cloud overall capabilities. With the construction of a private cloud, the bank plans to achieve the following key goals:
During the construction process, it is necessary to implement differentiated deployment, unified management, and heterogenous resources to achieve a resource pool for the entire bank. All HQ and branch resources are managed on the cloud management platform. Production and transaction applications of branches are migrated to the level-1 HQ resource pool. This innovative two-level resource pool mode enables centralized resource management and scheduling. CEB went through a multi-party selection process and finally chose to use Huawei’s hyper-converged product series, FusionCube 6000. The embedded Huawei cloud platform software enables the construction of the entire resource pool.
Huawei FusionCube’s converged architecture resource pool solution offers the following key features:
With all of the advantages of FusionCube’s features mentioned above, more finance customers are choosing Huawei’s FusionCube to deploy their services. Huawei FusionCube hyper-converged infrastructure is already widely used in Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, Agricultural Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Shanghai Pudong Development Bank, China CITIC Bank, China Continent Property & Casualty Insurance, Hong Kong Infocast, Pacific Insurance, and many other financial institutions.
