LAS VEGAS, May 8 — Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider today launched its innovative CloudEngine series switches at Interop 2012. The CloudEngine series switches provide the industry's largest single-frame switching capacity of up to 48T and support high-density switching of 100GE, 40GE, 10GE and GE interfaces, as well as virtualization and computing, storage and network convergence. This enables the sustainable development of enterprise data centers over a 10 year span.
Committed to providing a better way for enterprises to tap into the opportunities presented by the rise of cloud computing and ICT convergence, Huawei's CloudEngine series switches provide stable, reliable and secure services to help customers build scalable, virtualized and converged data center fabric architectures.
"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 12800 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.
Drawing on the the company's extensive R&D experience and decade-long involvement in contributing to industry standards, the CloudEngine series is Huawei's next-generation switch family designed for cloud computing data centers. Its standard, open and easy-to-integrate product interface will enhance the user's experience while lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO). As a leader in the global ICT industry, Huawei plays an active role in the research and development of data center network standards. Currently, Huawei participates in 148 international standards organizations, including IEEE and IETF, and has submitted over 25,000 standard proposals.
Scalable, Virtualized and Converged Data Center Fabric Architecture
