Huawei Launches Servers with Intel Cascade Lake Refresh Processors

Huawei FusionServer Pro 2288H V5

Huawei has 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.

Intel’s Cascade Lake Refresh processor is a new member of the Cascade Lake processor family, delivering a performance that would be “36% higher” than its predecessors.

FusionServer Pro 1288H V5 and 2288H V5 are typical Huawei universal rack servers and both would feature “robust performance, flexible configuration, intelligent energy saving, and intelligent management.”

FusionServer Pro 2288H V5 is a 2U 2-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. Additionally, it integrates proprietary technologies, such as the Dynamic Energy Management Technology (DEMT) and Fault Diagnosis & Management (FDM), to reduce operating expenses (OPEX) and increase returns on investment (ROI).

FusionServer Pro 2298 V5 is a 2U 2-socket storage rack server that adopts a hybrid storage architecture for tiered data storage. It supports 24 3.5-inch drives and 4 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.

Founded in 1987, Huawei counts more than 194,000 employees. Huawei is collaborating with Intel to provide high-performance, energy-efficient, secured, and “reliable” products and solutions.
