[Online, October 21, 2020] ICT businesses and partners will congregate virtually for Huawei eco-Connect Europe, which takes place in a fully digital format on 20-21 October.
This is the fifth edition of Huawei’s flagship European event, but the first time it is held exclusively through an online platform, as opposed to the traditional face-to-face conference format. Now, Huawei takes a leading role in the virtual event revolution, focusing on and promoting co-operation between businesses and partners and bringing them new technology solutions in a remote setting.
In the Cloud & AI Session, Huawei launches FusionServer Pro 2488H V6, the latest member to the FusionServer Pro product family. This is a showpiece product that displays a perfect combination of innovation and superior performance. It is built on Huawei's commitment to industry partnerships for a prosperous computing industry, and marks a significant step to the rapid digital transformation of industries.
Kenneth Zhang, President of FusionServer Business, Huawei, spoke at length about how the computing industry needs to combine higher single-node computing power and density with intelligent O&M, to tackle the current challenges. "Improving server performance at the system level" Kenneth said, "along with high-density data center deployment and intelligent O&M, is essential for the development of the computing industry".
Huawei FusionServer Pro intelligent servers run on the x86 architecture to unlock powerful general and heterogeneous computing. The next-generation FusionServer Pro 2488H V6 houses four 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors in a 2U space, with 48 DDR4 DIMMs and 11 PCIe slots for local storage. The intelligent server is equipped with the latest AI training and inference modules to unleash up to 560 TFLOPS computing power on a single node.
Intel is one of the most important global partners of Huawei, attending the launch event of the FusionServer Pro 2488H V6, where it demonstrated the latest Intel data center products. One such product was the 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor. It provides AI acceleration and takes embedded AI performance to the next level with Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost) that supports the bfloat 16 format. The new generation product delivers 1.9 times higher inference performance than that of its predecessor. Intel offers memory technology in the form of the Intel® Optane™ persistent memory (PMem) 200 series to support real-time big data analytics. Running on the unrivaled configuration of the next-generation Intel processor, Huawei FusionServer Pro 2488H V6 delivers higher performance and better services for customers.
A thriving ecosystem supports technology and product development from the ground up. This explains why Huawei continues to develop ecosystems and advocates collaboration for mutual benefits. Kenneth Zhang noted that by working with Intel and other global partners, Huawei has built a broad portfolio of FusionServer Pro intelligent server products and solutions. "Thanks to our concerted effort, the FusionServer Pro collaborative ecosystem has flourished", Kenneth said.
New 5G, AI, and cloud technologies are making digital transformation a possibility. However, it does bring certain challenges, such as the requirement for diversified computing in every facet of the society. To embrace these challenges, Huawei will work with Intel and other global partners to fulfill the commitment to a global diversified supply system and supercharge the computing industry and ecosystem. Together, we will offer the premium FusionServer Pro intelligent server products and solutions for customers, providing unparalleled performance and a prosperous ecosystem that help industries move to digital.
Huawei expects to use eco-Connect Europe to advance dialogues and align industry stakeholders on ways to expand the digital ecosystem, support more public infrastructure with digital solutions, and close the ‘digital gap’ to make technology accessible to all.
Industry and geography-specific use cases will be discussed, and Huawei will also present its own technological solutions that will help accelerate the global digital transformation.
However, it is only through co-operation that the transformation can be fully achieved; as such, the true goal of eco-Connect Europe is to use the digital platform to engage as many customers and partners as possible in exploring the possibilities of a connected, intelligent future on a global level.
