22 Jun 2017 Frankfurt - At ISC17, Huawei released the public-Cloud-based HPC Cloud Solution 2.0. Compared with the previous version, this version has been enhanced in performance. HPC Cloud Solution 2.0 is co-developed by Huawei and Mellanox based on InfiniBand and is the first HPC public Cloud solution providing 100 Gbit/s EDR computing network capabilities in the industry. In addition, this solution uses high-performance local storage to improve the overall HPC computing performance and instant data erase and storage encryption to enhance security. The HPC solution will be firstly rolled out on Open Telekom Cloud, a public Cloud platform jointly provided by Huawei and Deutsche Telekom in Europe.

Multiple years of in-depth cooperation between Huawei and Mellanox enables Huawei IT infrastructure and Cloud computing to provide industry-leading interconnection performance. At ISC17, Huawei showcased the HPC Cloud Solution developed based on the OpenStack architecture. HPC performance is achieved using high-performance Elastic Cloud Servers (ECSs), Bare Metal Service, and heterogeneous computing acceleration, InfiniBand-based 100 Gbit/s EDR computing network capabilities, as well as parallel file system storage capabilities. The application of these technologies enables the HPC Cloud Solution to provide an efficient, open, secure, and flexible service model in the HPC industry.

Gilad Shainer, Vice President of the Mellanox Marketing Department, stated: "To maximize the performance of HPC and Cloud agility, HPC Clouds require innovative high-performance networks. Mellanox InfiniBand plays a leading role in the world in CPU offloading and network computing and fully supports virtualization. As a leader in the HPC interconnection industry, we are pleased to cooperate with Huawei for constructing a leading-edge HPC public Cloud platform to deliver HPC applications on clouds and offer future-oriented HPC solutions for users."

Sun Jiawei, Director, IT Business Development Dept, Huawei, stated: "Sticking to openness, cooperativeness, and win-win, Huawei continuously adheres to Cloud services as the corporate strategy to assist customers in business success. We are pleased to cooperate with Mellanox in HPC public Cloud solutions, helping Huawei further enhance Huawei public Cloud capabilities based on Mellanox's advanced technologies in the HPC interconnection industry and provide more choices for customers. This cooperation will accelerate Cloud-oriented transformation for industrial customers and assist enterprises in continuous innovation in HPC services."

Andreas Falkner, Deutsche Telekom responsible for Open Telekom Cloud, summarized: "The public Cloud is the perfect fit for all customers demanding short-term powerful computing capacities. With the new HPC features, we furthermore enhanced Open Telekom Cloud and broadened our range of use cases for each industry."
