Data Center Virtualization Solution, Creating More Value for Enterprises


Expansion of traditional IT architectures, using dedicated resources for specific functions, is rapidly becoming unsustainable. Requirements for data sharing, pressure on expenses, short implementation cycles and ever higher requirements for reliability and security are forcing IT organizations into new architectures. Using cloud computing concepts to consolidate existing IT environments not only meets these requirements, it provides a solid foundation for building future capabilities that expand outside a single enterprise.

Expansion of traditional IT architectures, using dedicated resources for specific functions, is rapidly becoming unsustainable. Requirements for data sharing, pressure on expenses, short implementation cycles and ever higher requirements for reliability and security are forcing IT organizations into new architectures. Using cloud computing concepts to consolidate existing IT environments not only meets these requirements, but also provides a solid foundation for building future capabilities that expand outside a single enterprise.


Huawei offers a comprehensive cloud computing server integration and consolidation solution to meet enterprise expectations and help enterprises increase the value of their IT investment.


Huawei FusionCloud DataCenter Virtualization Solution and Its Position in the Cloud System


The Huawei FusionCloud DataCenter Virtualization Solution consists of the following core components:

Cloud software & hardware

  • FusionCompute


The cloud OS, which implements server virtualization, consists of a virtual infrastructure layer and cloud service layer. The virtualization infrastructure layer is used to virtualize the physical computing, storage, and network resources. Upper-layer applications obtain these virtual resources from a shared virtual resource pool. This layer provides virtual computing, storage, and network resources, and implements virtual resource scheduling and management. The cloud service layer invokes and manages virtual resources through the interface provided by the virtualization infrastructure layer, and provides cloud services for upper-layer applications through the middleware interface. This layer is composed of multiple cloud service modules, such as the modules of elastic cloud computing, virtual private cloud, disaster recovery backup, flexible load balancing, and cloud middleware. The cloud middleware offers the parallel computing architecture, stream processing engine, and NoSQL database.


  • FusionManager


FusionManager provides cloud management functions: it monitors and manages the cloud computing software and hardware. Also it provides automatic resource provisioning and automatic infrastructure O&M; provides operation and management portals for end users and internal O&M personnel; offers a series of application programming interfaces (APIs) for upper-layer applications and third-party management software.


Self-Service and Automatic O&M Process:


  • Physical cloud infrastructure equipment


Huawei provides a full range of cloud physical devices, including servers, storage devices, network devices, and security devices. Customers can select these devices based on the size of the IT infrastructure, requirements for future expansion and needs of software applications.


Optimized Cloud-Centric Hardware includes:


Huawei Tecal E6000 blade server


Characteristics:


Security: The computing, storage, and management planes are physically isolated to improve security


High reliability: Blades and switching modules are connected through the backplane to reduce wiring


Usability: The automatic loading function helps implement rapid and large-scale deployment.


Huawei S5500T/S5600T/S5800T storage


Characteristics:


Support for a large range of access protocols and speeds: 1 GB iSCSI, 10 GB iSCSI, 4 GB FC, and 8 GB FC.


High-density I/O ports: A maximum of 48 I/O ports meet the requirements of high-density VM deployment.


Reduced TCO: Each server can support hundreds of VMs by using the expansion card, which reduces the investment in network switching devices.


End-to-End Professional Integration Service:

During the preparation, deployment, implementation, delivery, and operation phases, Huawei provides a series of professional services, including system research and analysis, performance data collection, capacity analysis and assessment, system migration and deployment, service continuity guarantee, and effect contrast.


  • Requirement research: Collects comprehensive user behavior information by using professional research methodology and tools.
  • Consulting: Provides consulting services to plan the solution, deployment mode, and deployment scale.
  • Planning and design: Designs the solution based on customer requirements to deliver a customized, high-performance, reliable, and secure solution.
  • Integration: Provides a professional project integration and delivery team to ensure that the planning and design are implemented.
  • Project management: Provides experienced management teams to ensure that the project can be completed with low risk and low consumption.
  • Maintenance support: Provides professional maintenance teams, 22 regional offices, 17 R&D centers, and over 100 branches around the world to respond to customer requirements.


Advanced Technology

  • Provides outstanding performance. For example:

- The current FusionCompute version supports a maximum of 20 clusters.


- Each cluster supports a maximum of 128 physical servers.


- The FusionCompute supports more than 100,000 VMs.


- The consumption of CPU virtualization is less than 5%.


  • The FusionCompute ensures the stable and effective running of core applications, such as the large database, ERP, and mail server.
  • Holds the core hardware and software technologies applied in the cloud system. These technologies are related with virtualization software, cloud middleware, servers, storage devices, network devices, security devices, service and virtualization integration, intelligent network interface cards (iNICs), and chips.
  • Provides strong R&D and technical support teams. The cloud computing R&D team, including more than 6000 R&D personnel currently, develops rapidly by attracting more talents.


Openness and Collaboration

  • Collaborates with the industry-leading IT partners to provide end-to-end solutions.
  • Has established a comprehensive ecosystem, covering design, R&D, delivery, and service.
  • Provides open APIs.
  • Is compatible with heterogeneous servers, storage devices, network devices, OSs, and upper-layer application software.
  • Supports multiple VM specifications.
  • Complies with industry standards and de facto standards.
  • Joins the mainstream cloud computing standardization organizations, and develops, promotes, and implements cloud computing standards actively.


First-Class Service

  • Gains rich delivery and service experience from a large number of projects and deploys more than 45,000 VMs for customers.
  • Provides local R&D and service teams to respond to customer requirements and rectify faults in time.
  • Offers a series of professional tools to provide end-to-end services, including consulting, project delivery, and daily O&M.


Flexible Offering

  • Offers small-scale configuration and standard configuration solutions. In the near future, Huawei will launch the integration deployment solution, which achieves the plug-and-play function and fast deployment. Customers can flexibly choose appropriate solutions based on their requirements.
  • Enables customers to select the end-to-end FusionCloud DataCenter Virtualization Solution or from the server integration solution select some components, such as consulting and assessment, virtualization software, cloud management software, servers, storage devices, network devices, and security devices.

Compared with traditional IT architectures, the Huawei FusionCloud DataCenter Virtualization Solution allows enterprises to transform to a service-centric cloud structure that features shared hardware resources.


It is estimated that the transformation improves IT efficiency by more than 50% while reducing deployment costs for new services by at least 30%. In addition, the cloudized enterprise IT systems reduce costs, enable enterprises to integrate with their end customers, and improve efficiency, decision-making capability, competitiveness, and profitability.
