As enterprise digital transformation gains momentum, data has become a key production factor. In turn, data centers — responsible for data computing, storage, and forwarding — have now become the single most important piece of critical digital infrastructure. As a result, data center Information Technology (IT) architecture, computing units, and storage media are all undergoing a seismic shift, driving Data Center Networks (DCNs) as a whole to evolve from multi-protocol to all-Ethernet.
Huawei's CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged DCN Solution helps enterprises unleash the power of next generation hyper-converged DCNs. Doing so, it allows them to gain actionable insights from transient data, accelerate digital transformation, and drive the development of the digital economy. Indeed, with more than 12,000 customers, the effectiveness of this solution has already been widely proven the world over.
