Huawei has unveiled its new line of mission critical servers that deliver higher computing power with the Intel® Xeon® E7 v4 processors.
The upgrade to the Intel® Xeon® E7 v4 processors empowers Huawei mission critical servers with CPUs that support the 14-nanometer manufacturing processing technique, up to 24 cores and 60 MB L3 cache per CPU, 30% larger than that of the previous generation of CPUs.
The new-generation CPUs deliver 27% higher performance than their predecessors.
In addition to the upgrade to the new CPU platform, Huawei's enhanced mission critical server line-up offers many new features, including:
- NVMe solid state disks (SSDs) for high-speed cache and block data read/write, driving up storage performance.
- Support for the trusted cryptography module (TCM, or TPM, the trusted platform module) encryption interfaces. Users can now flexibly configure TCM encryption modules to secure their mission critical applications.
- Support for out-of-band management of RAIDs. Users can flexibly query and set RAID configuration information and status to precisely manage and configure hard disks. RAID information can be configured online, making RAID management more convenient.
- Support for fault diagnosis & management 2.0 (FDM2.0), which enables real-time intelligent fault diagnostics hardware fault location precision, dramatically improving product reliability.
This comes as Huawei recently announced that its FusionServer X6800 had again set a new world record with a score of 10,653 in the SPECPower_ssj 2008 benchmark, the industry's most stringent energy efficiency test.
For the test, the Huawei FusionServer X6800 was powered by Intel Xeon E5-2698 v4 processors and was configured with the latest XH620 V3 server nodes.
This configuration, backed by Huawei's proprietary dynamic energy management technology (DEMT), 80PLUS Platinum power supply units (PSUs), multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) thermal design, power saving technologies such as intelligent fan speed adjustment, as well as performance optimization technologies, increased energy efficiency by 18%.
The combination of these new groundbreaking technologies allowed the Huawei FusionServer X6800 to achieve its record-breaking score of 10,653, establishing Huawei servers as an exemplary model of energy efficiency.
This is the second time FusionServer X6800 has broken the SPECPower_ssj 2008 world record.
