Huawei Teams with Intel to Accelerate Adoption of Private Cloud Infrastructure for the Enterprise
Collaboration will Optimize OpenStack-based FusionSphere
to take full advantage of Intel® Architecture
Barcelona, Spain, October 28, 2016 – Huawei announced it will collaborate with Intel to optimize FusionSphere, Huawei’s OpenStack-based cloud operating system. The announcement at the OpenStack Summit in Barcelona, noted that the aim of the collaboration is to take full advantage of Intel® Architecture, to deliver improved performance and security capability for FusionSphere-based solutions.
The companies will work together to improve the OpenStack platform’s capabilities via community engagement and accelerate customer deployment by speeding customer evaluation. The collaboration is expected to accelerate cloud deployment in line with the Intel® Cloud for All Initiative.
The collaboration comes at a time that enterprises are seeking to move application management from traditional IT infrastructure to the improved agility and efficiency offered by software defined infrastructure. OpenStack delivers a unifying environment that provides management of both traditional enterprise and cloud native applications offering an evolutionary path for on-premise cloud deployment.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Intel to accelerate broad scale deployments of cloud solutions,” said Joy Huang, Vice President of Huawei’s IT Product Line. “We believe this alignment will serve organizations that want to stay competitive by adopting hyper-efficient, hyper-converged cloud environments. The Intel Architecture-optimized FusionSphere solution will provide the reliability, security, and the performance enterprise IT requires.”
“Huawei is a leading OpenStack contributor and a global leader in information and communication technology,” said Jonathan Donaldson, Vice President of Intel’s Software Defined Infrastructure and Data Center Group. “This collaboration enables FusionSphere-based cloud solutions to take full advantage of Intel Architecture features, such as Intel® Resource Director Technology (Intel® RDT). This Intel Cloud for All collaboration will accelerate Intel’s goal of deploying tens of thousands of new clouds.”
