One Capacity , Double the Performance
STOCKHOLM, Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei has announced the start of its NVMe PCIe SSD Flash Storm campaign for the server domain at the Huawei European Business Driven Data Center Congress 2016. The campaign aims to use Huawei NVMe PCIe SSDs with the same total capacity to replace SATA SSDs in server products to improve service performance by over two-fold with 40% less power consumption, helping customers significantly improve service performance and reduce system TCO.
In the European Business Driven Data Center Congress, Wing Kin Leung, CTO of Huawei Enterprise BG, delivered a speech entitled "Empowering Your Infrastructure, Enriching Your Services". He pointed out that more agile and efficient IT infrastructure is mandatory for enriching people's lives and applications, and announced the start of the NVMe PCIe SSD Flash Storm campaign. Mr. Leung also indicated that Huawei NVMe PCIe SSDs are an innovation that will revolutionize server hard disks.
Overall server development is limited by hard disks, which is the key component that hinders any real improvement in service performance. Though certain servers have obvious improvement in service performance by using SATA SSDs instead of conventional HDDs, system resources such as processors and memory modules are not fully utilized. We need storage devices that are more powerful than SATA SSDs to fully utilize system resources and further improve service performance.
As a pioneer of the PCIe SSD technology, Huawei had started its research on PCIe SSDs since 2005 and released the industry's first PCIe SSD product - ES2000 for Internet customers in 2007. With ES2000 PCIe SSDs, Internet companies had greatly improved their service performance in search, web access, and database scenarios.
Huawei's sixth-generation PCIe SSD product - ES3000 V3 NVMe PCIe SSD is a 2.5-inch disk with up to 3.2 TB capacity. With Huawei's 1812 ASIC SSD controller and innovative NVMControl algorithm, as well as the industry's latest-technology-based NAND Flash, an ES3000 V3 NVMe PCIe SSD delivers up to 800,000 IOPS, which is equivalent to more than ten SATA SSDs.
Through innovations in SSD controllers and flash chips, Huawei launched the "same-capacity SSDs replacing conventional disks" campaign for the storage domain at the HCC in September 2015, aiming to reduce the threshold for applying flash memory in data centers and making databases 9-fold faster.
Huawei's "NVMe PCIe SSDs replacing SATA SSDs" campaign launched for the server domain this time and the "same-capacity SSDs replacing conventional disks" campaign launched for the storage domain in September 2015 are two actions of Huawei's "IT Flash Storm". Both campaigns are carried out to help customers accelerate IT infrastructures and achieve sustainable innovations.
