Huawei's New FusionServer 2298 V5 in the Spotlight at ISP Summit

SHENZHEN, China, April 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Huawei ISP Summit Asia Pacific 2019, Huawei showcased a rich package of intelligent computing products, including the brand new FusionServer 2298 V5 ultra-high-density storage server, TaiShan - the industry's highest-performance ARM-based server, and the SSD intelligent accelerator component.

The FusionServer 2298 V5 storage server aims to provide large-room and cost-effective storage for customers such as Internet service providers, enterprises, and carriers. It is applicable to software-defined storage, big data, backup and archiving, and other storage-intensive scenarios such as warm/cold data storage. FusionServer 2298 V5 features ultra-high density, superb performance, easy maintenance, convenient management, and high expandability. The 2298 V5 supports up to 24x3.5'' hard drives and 4x2.5'' hard drives (up to 4 NVMe SSDs) in a 2U space, offering a storage capacity of near 400 TB, 40% larger than that of Huawei 2U servers of the same generation. The 2298 V5 leverages a hybrid storage architecture and supports tiered data storage, with flexible and large-capacity local storage expansion, reducing data storage costs.

It supports highly flexible I/O with 2xGE and 2x10GE LAN on motherboard (LOM) ports, simplifying network configuration and meets network requirements in most application scenarios. It also supports OCP2.0 standard I/O interfaces and is applicable to cloud data center deployment. The 2298 V5 supports independent power on/off of each single hard drive, implementing precise service and device control. It also supports effective energy-saving technologies. All these innovations translate into tangible benefits for customers.

With the artificial intelligence (AI) era impacting all industries, enterprises are turning to cloud computing and big data technologies to improve productivity and are transforming business models and service models with AI applications. The advancement of AI technologies depends on powerful computing and big data analytics capabilities and emerging trends pose increasing demands for the computing and storage capacity of servers. Against this backdrop, it has become an industry imperative to smarten up data centers, increase server capacity, improve O&M efficiency, and reduce data storage costs.
