Huawei FusionServer E9000 achieves record-breaking processing speed

Chinese vendor's blade servers break three CPU world records

Huawei's latest FusionServer E9000 has broken three blade server world records during SPEC CPU2006 CPU benchmarking tests.

Its two-socket blade server FusionServer E9000 CH121 V3 underwent three SPEC CPU2006 tests, SPECint_base2006, SPECint_rate_base2006, and SPECfp_rate_base2006, scoring 74, 1790 and 1120 respectively.

The FusionServer E9000 CH121 V3 uses converged architecture that integrates compute, storage and networking and is based on Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 CPU, which can provide up to 22 cores and deliver 20 per cent higher performance than the previous generation E5-2600 v3.

According to Huawei, it is this new technology that has made its latest range of FusionServer 20 per cent more powerful than its predecessor.

The server also has all-flash blades that support up to 96 NVMe SSDs per chassis, hard disk storage blades that support up to 48 3.5in hard disks per chassis and board-level liquid cooling blades, which the company claims consume 40 per cent less power than the previous E9000 FusionServer range.

When fully configured with all-flash blades, it delivers up to 307TB storage per blade and 10 million IOPS per blade.

Zhang Xiaohua, general manager of Huawei's blade servers, said: "Huawei's blade servers have repeatedly set new records in the industry's most authoritative SPEC tests, proving Huawei's powerful server development capabilities."

"With continuous innovation, Huawei FusionServer E9000 blade server maintains its excellent performance and reliability, while always adhering to its openness philosophy," Zhang concluded.

While Huawei FusionServer E9000 now holds the two-socket blade server record, the current one-socket blade server record is still held by Oracle's SPARC T7-1 servers, which scored 1120 on SPECint_rate_base2006 and 801 on SPECfp_rate_base2006.
