Oct 14, 2014

BARCELONA, Spain, Oct. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VMworld Europe 2014 — Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced at VMworld Europe 2014 that its RH2288H V2 Rack Server has achieved VMware Virtual SAN™ certification based on its high-efficiency design, optimal performance and expansion capacity.

Huawei, which is participating as a partner and sponsor at VMworld Europe 2014, joins a list of international vendors that have VMware Virtual SAN™ Ready Nodes certification. VMware Virtual SAN™ is a hypervisor-converged software-defined storage solution that can be deployed on various x86 servers. It abstracts and pools server-side flash and disk into shared virtual data store with policy-based management and application-centric data services. The RH2288H V2 Virtual SAN Ready Node is a validated server configuration jointly recommended by Huawei and VMware for Virtual SAN deployment.

"This VMware certification is the latest milestone for Huawei in its commitment to develop industry-leading IT solutions for our enterprise customers," said Gao Ji, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, Huawei Technologies West European Region. "It also reinforces the strong partnership we have been able to establish with VMware, a true innovator in the virtualization and cloud technology space."  

The Huawei RH2288H V2 is a 2U 2-socket rack server that supports two Intel Xeon E5-2600/E5-2600 v2 series processors. With an innovative architecture and high-efficiency design, the Huawei server implements optimal computing performance and storage expansion by providing up to 768 GB memory capacity together with a large local storage capacity up to 50TB. The server is an ideal platform for cloud computing and key services with databases.

The VMware Virtual SAN certification will enrich Huawei's Software-Defined Storage (SDS) capabilities for more customers, while reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). It will also supplement converged virtualization management storage solutions that use the VMware vSphere kernel and create shared data storage that features virtual environment design, flash memory optimization, and excellent recovery capabilities.
