Intel has launched the Cascade Lake Refresh processor, a new member of the Cascade Lake processor family, which delivers a performance that is 36% higher than its predecessors.
As an indication of the closeness between Huawei and Intel, Huawei adapted its FusionServer Pro series servers to the Cascade Lake Refresh processor in February. Huawei has so far completed the adaptation tests and launched a wide range of mainstream products, including rack servers 1288H V5, 2288H V5, 2298 V5, and 5288 V5, high-density server X6000 V5, and blade server E9000.
Of these products, FusionServer Pro 1288H V5 and 2288H V5 are typical Huawei universal rack servers and both feature robust performance, flexible configuration, intelligent energy saving, and intelligent management. FusionServer Pro 2288H V5 is a 2U two-socket rack server applicable to multiple scenarios, including cloud computing virtualization, database, and big data.
It is configurable with 24 DDR4 DIMM slots and 10 PCIe expansion slots, and supports 28 NVMe SSDs, 20 3.5-inch drives, or 31 2.5-inch drives for local storage. In addition, it integrates proprietary technologies, such as Dynamic Energy Management Technology (DEMT) and Fault Diagnosis and Management (FDM), to reduce operating expenses (OPEX) and increase returns on investment.
FusionServer Pro 2298 V5 is a 2U two-socket storage rack server that adopts a hybrid storage architecture for tiered data storage. It supports 24 3.5-inch drives and four NVMe SSDs, meeting requirements such as the tiered deployment of hot, warm, and cold data, and historical data archiving. Due to its efficient design, 2298 V5 can unleash ultimate computing performance with flexible expansion and ultra-large local storage at a lower data storage cost.
As a global strategic partner of Intel, Huawei has been adhering to a customer-centric approach and making unswerving commitments to the digital transformation of enterprises for the success of customers. A more intelligent data center is the key to fulfilling this commitment. To this end, Huawei is collaborating with Intel to provide high-performance, energy-efficient, secure, and reliable products and solutions.
