LAS VEGAS, May 7 — Interop Las Vegas 2012 — Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider will be showcasing its next-generation data center switches, CloudEngine 12800, at Interop Las Vegas. With the industry's largest switching capacity and highest performance, the CloudEngine series provide a better way for global enterprises to tap into the opportunities presented by the rise of cloud computing and ICT convergence. In addition to showcasing its latest innovations, Huawei will leverage its industry-leading, high reliability and high security campus solutions to power networking connectivity for Interop attendees and exhibitors at the event venue as one of two core network providers selected by the organizer.
"As one of the leading business technology events, Interop is an important platform for us to showcase our advanced products and expand our business globally," said William Xu, CEO of Huawei Enterprise Business Group. "We are excited to introduce the CloudEngine 12800, Huawei's latest data center switches that provide the industry's highest performance and help customers build scalable, virtualized and converged data canter networks in the cloud computing era."
Huawei will conduct demonstrations on its innovations and capabilities in IP infrastructure, unified communications and collaboration, data center and cloud computing solutions at the show. Key highlights at Interop include:
"The deployment of Cloud-based services brings with it extreme network challenges in the areas of traffic growth, service scale and manageability. With the announcement of the Cloud Fabric Architecture and CloudEngine 12000 series, Huawei is addressing the needs of this environment by providing customers a solid reference architecture and a highly scalable, converged and fully virtualized platform. This innovative approach will provide mid market through high end enterprise customers the foundation for a customizable network environment managed with a single fabric interface," said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst, ZK Research.
As one of Interop's two core network providers, Huawei built a highly reliable campus network for the show. With security features designed throughout for control, management, user, business and applications, as well as the use of real-time monitoring and management provided by the next-generation enterprise O&M solution eSight, Huawei's campus network will power networking connectivity for over 350 exhibitors and over 15,000 attendees at Interop. This will provide secure and stable access to the wired/wireless connectivity for IP voice, video and, data services.
"Leveraging our deep expertise in cloud computing and ICT convergence, Huawei Enterprise is uniquely positioned to provide a better way forward for enterprise organizations," said David He, president of marketing, Huawei Enterprise. "Through our win-win business model, we aim to realize returns on investment and success for our customers, partners and Huawei, while building a conductive industry ecosystem for sustainable development."
Huawei is located at Booth 1139 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Interop Spring 2012 is held from May 6 to 10, 2012, in Las Vegas. For more information on Huawei's participation and events, visit http://www.huawei.com/minisite/Interop/index.html.

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
