SimpliVity has teamed up with Huawei to put its OmniStack technology on the Chinese company's FusionServer. The offering is available on SimpliVity's all-flash hyperconverged models.

The deal will see Simplivity aiming for additional sales through Huawei's channels while Huawei tries to increase its profile in the hyperconverged market. With 50% of sales already coming from outside North America, SimpliVity's partnership with Huawei will further advance the company's market position.

Hyperconverged appliances include storage, compute, hypervisor, storage networking, in-line deduplication, compression, and optimisation along with comprehensive data management, data mobility, built-in data protection, and automated disaster recovery capabilities, in a single device. 

OmniStack with Huawei FusionServer combines all IT infrastructure and data services for virtualised workloads onto Huawei FusionServer RH2288H V3. This appliance features one or two Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3/v4 processors and up to 1TB of memory.

The firms claim organisations could get up to 90% capacity savings across production and backup storage while improving application performance. 

Qiu Long, president of IT server product line at Huawei, said the firm's servers running SimpliVity OmniStack technology "represent a win-win for businesses needing hyperconverged infrastructure".

Doron Kempel, SimpliVity's CEO, said that customers want choice when it comes to hyperconverged infrastructure. 

"We deliver this by way of our technology alliances with Cisco, Lenovo, Dell, and now Huawei. By providing the most complete hyperconverged solution on the industry's leading server platforms, SimpliVity is putting customer needs front and center," he said.
