Huawei Announces ES3000 V3 Card for High Performance Storage and a Supercomputing Customer at SC15

Nov 16, 2015, 10:00 ET from Huawei

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Huawei introduced its latest high IO storage PCIe SSD product for high performance computing, the ES3000 V3 series card, at SC15. The ES3000 V3 is on display at the Huawei booth (#173) at SC15, along with other HPC solutions including the FusionServer Liquid Cooling System and the OceanStor 9000 Big Data Storage System. The ES3000 V3 will be available in the U.S. market and globally in Q1 2016.

Huawei also announced that the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC) in Poland upgraded its HPC data center with a Huawei PetaFLOPS-class supercomputer. 

The ES3000 V3 NVMe PCIe SSD series can improve storage IO performance to meet Big Data and virtualization needs, and is compatible with mainstream operation systems and virtual machine systems. Huawei ES3000 V3 PCIe SSD provides up to 3.2TB capacity, up to 3.2GB/s bandwidth and 800,000 IOPS performance, and is ideal for HPC customers in various industries, including finance, transportation, energy, and internet.

Application scenarios for the ES3000 series card include:

  • High performance computing
  • Online transaction processing
  • Online analytical processing
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) cloud and virtualization
  • Data catching and indexing

PSNC Challenge
PSNC is affiliated with the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences, serves as a major research center in Poland, and appears on the Top 500 list of the most powerful computing systems in the world. PSNC sought to reach peak supercomputing performance with increased density, while simultaneously achieving dramatic improvements in energy efficiency and reducing OPEX.  

In just three days, Huawei deployed a PetaFLOPS-class supercomputer based on the Huawei FusionServer E9000 converged infrastructure blade server chassis with over 1,000 FusionServer CH121 V3 computer nodes. The HPC solution was fully equipped with optimized direct liquid cooling systems, which allowed PSNC to deploy top end performance configuration in a dense blade form factor. 

Customer Benefits
PSNC's new Huawei HPC system is capable of achieving theoretical peak performance of 1.37 PFLOPs, and averages efficiency of node at 0.901 TFLOPS. Additionally, the direct cooling system removes up to 80 percent of heat dissipation, thereby reducing cooling system energy costs by around 40 percent as compared to traditional air cooling designs. The energy efficiency should amount to millions of dollars in savings by enabling PSNC to deploy higher compute capacity within the same power, cooling and cost parameters.
