"We are glad that Atlas won the Best of Show Award- Runners Up. It's a continuation to our list of honor after the Huawei KunLun Mission Critical Server won the Best of Show Award at Interop Tokyo 2016. This again signifies that Huawei's intelligent computing products are recognized by the Japanese IT market, which is noted for its cutting-edge technologies and relentless requirements on product quality," said Qiu Long, President of Huawei Intelligent Computing Product Line. "As a part of Huawei's ‘Boundless Intelligent Computing’ strategy, Huawei Atlas next-generation intelligent cloud hardware platform enables customers to quickly and intelligently deploy intelligent applications while the AI infrastructure resource utilization and performance are improved by over 50%. In the future, Huawei and its partners will work together to make it easy for everyone to use artificial intelligence and cloud."

Starting to provide telecom servers in 2002, Huawei has been in the intelligent computing business for 16 years. Built on the Huawei FusionServer G series heterogeneous servers, the Huawei Atlas is engineered for AI, smart city, and public cloud scenarios. It harnesses heterogeneous resource pooling and intelligent orchestration technologies to disaggregate heterogeneous accelerator cards and SSD resources and provision them as hardware resource pools to best suit application models. Atlas delivers over 50% better resource utilization, enables a more than 10x performance boost over the traditional x86 architecture, and keeps services up and running even when a single GPU fails. The heterogeneous resource pooling and intelligent orchestration features of Atlas help customers slash hardware models on IT infrastructure.

Huawei has been pushing the boundaries of traditional servers and data centers, and driving edge-cloud collaboration and intelligence, to pave the way fast-forward to an intelligent future through Boundless Computing. With continuous innovations in software and hardware platforms in the intelligent computing and AI fields, Huawei has leapt to the top rung of global mainstream server vendors. Huawei strives to enable the enterprise digital transformation by helping customers build IT infrastructure of superior performance, simplicity, and efficiency.

Huawei servers are in use at more than 5,000 customer locations across the world in different industries, including the public sector, Internet, telecom, energy, finance, transportation, healthcare, education, media and information, and manufacturing.
