2021 Global Technology Leadership Award

Based on the investigation and analysis of the global data center network market, as well as the research and evaluation on related companies within the industry, Frost & Sullivan, the Growth Partnership Company, presents Huawei CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged DCN Solution with 2021 Global Technology Leadership Award. This award aims to recognize Huawei’s CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged DCN Solution for its continuous innovation and practice in the global data center network field, and to give high recognition and praise to its contribution to the overall industry development.


At present, the digital transformation of all enterprises in different industries is accelerating, and more and more companies have become practitioners and explorers of digital transformation. The high-performance computing power brought by digital transformation has begun to play a key role in many fields of technology and people’s life. For example, the accuracy of weather forecasting has increased from 21.8% to 90%; the length of gene sequencing in the life sciences has accelerated from 13 years to only requiring 1 day; the development time of new cars in the field of automotive electronics has increased from 60 months to 24 months, etc. In the process of digitization, a large amount of data has also been generated, and which has gradually become a valuable core asset of enterprises. Data has become a key element of production. Enterprises need to effectively process and utilize these data to make optimal decisions. Therefore, how to provide larger-scale computing power with lower cost and higher efficiency has become the focus of the current supercomputing center. At the same time, the integration of cloudification and AI supercomputing also puts forward higher demands on network performance.

Due to the large amount of data transmitted between supercomputer computing nodes, the delay requirements are very strict. When the network has packet loss or high latency, it is easy to cause data congestion, and the overall efficiency of the high-performance computing cluster will be greatly reduced. In this case, it is difficult to save the situation even if more computing nodes are added. For instance, every 0.1% of network packet loss will cause a 50% drop in computing power, and network performance will become a bottleneck in computing power improvement. In the process of digital transformation of enterprises, whether network solution providers can meet the requirements of cloud-network collaboration, rapid deployment, high-speed interconnection, zero packet loss, and low latency is the key for enterprises to choose network solutions.

As the world’s leading provider of information and communication technology (ICT) solutions, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. continues to maintain innovation capabilities and technological leadership. The key technologies of its hyper-converged data center network have been highly recognized by the market, fully demonstrating Huawei’s spirit of breaking through the limitations of form and function in the research and development process. At the same time, Huawei’s new technology researchers and marketers grasp the market, truly start from customer needs, propose solutions based on customer pain points and future development, and jointly innovate with customers to maximize the value of customer companies’ network resources, which brings surging power to the digital transformation of client enterprises.

In particular, in response to problems such as the decrease in computing power caused by network delays, and in order to drive the evolution of data center networks to full Ethernet, Huawei has launched CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged DCN Solution. The data center, as the most critical digital infrastructure in the new infrastructure, is undergoing three major changes: its IT architecture starts from a centralized to a distributed development, achieving server Ethernet interconnection; computing units begin to have PCIe replaced to achieve CPU/GPU Ethernet Interconnection: The storage medium is transformed from HDD to SSD, realizing all-flash Ethernet interconnection. With these changes, data center networks are evolving from the original multi-protocol model to full Ethernet. Huawei CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged DCN Solution meets the above three changes. The iLosslessTM intelligent lossless algorithm carried by CloudFabric can dynamically adjust the waterline through real-time sensing of network traffic models to ensure 100% throughput and zero packet loss, thereby reducing the waiting loss caused by packet loss. The solution also has the characteristics of network & computing coordination, us-level E2E delay, 400GE ultra-large-scale networking, etc., which can reduce network communication delays, and supports the high-throughput and large-bandwidth requirements of supercomputer centers, making RoCE large-scale networking possible. With its technical advantages, CloudFabric helps customers build a unified and integrated high-performance computing, storage, and general-purpose computing network. With the help of Huawei’s data center autonomous driving network management and control system iMaster NCE-Fabric, it can realize intelligent operation and maintenance based on artificial intelligence and knowledge graphs, and also help Customers visualize the RoCE network. In addition, Huawei has always adhered to customer-centricity, creating long-term value for customers, and accelerating digital transformation and promoting the development of the digital economy. At present, Huawei CloudFabric 3.0 Hyper-Converged DCN Solution has served 12,000+ customers worldwide.
