Inspur Teams Up with China Telecom and Intel Announce the First Carrier-Grade Rack Scale NFV Solution at MWC 2017

Inspur announced the first carrier-grade rack scale Virtualized Network Function (NFV) solution with China Telecom and Intel at Mobile World Congress 2017. Based on the OpenStack open source platform, the solution implements (VNF) lifecycle management using X86 infrastructure and virtual computing, storage and networking technology. It conforms to the NFV standards of ETSI (European Telecommunication Standard Institute), and provides agility, speed, reliability, and stability for communications service providers (CSP).

230 Teams Worldwide Join ASC17 to Challenge AI and TaihuLight

2017 ASC Student Supercomputer Challenge (ASC17) held its opening ceremony at Zhengzhou University and hundreds of supercomputing experts and team representatives from worldwide attended the opening ceremony. A total of 230 teams will challenge the world ‘s fastest supercomputer Sunway TaihuLight, artificial intelligence application, Gordon Bell Award nomination application, and compete for top 20 places in the finals.

Inspur Joins Open Compute Project As Platinum Member

Inspur, a leading cloud computing total solutions provider, announced today that it has joined the Open Compute Project (OCP) as a Platinum member, showing its dedication and strategic focus on driving innovation into hyperscale computing and cloud-based solutions.

Baidu Shared Inspur Partnership Success at Gartner Data Center Conference

During Gartner’s Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference, Baidu US’s Chief Architect, Ali Heydari, talked about Baidu’s standing partnership with Inspur, their collaborative drive for innovation in the hyperscale data center space, and how both companies want to bring their years of experience and success to the US.

Heydari shared a successful case study on their current partnership with Inspur in reducing TCO for hyperscale data centers. “Baidu servers and racks are co-designed and built by Inspur. Because of their unique design of shared rack cooling and power infrastructure along with their extremely low data center PUEs, this renders very low operational costs and high reliability. The uptime with relatively low cost of rack builds have shown 30-40 percent total cost of ownership reduction compared to conventional OEM servers,” said Heydari. To improve data center power and cooling efficiency, deployment efficiency, density and manageability, Inspur’s Rack Scale Server SR is deployed as the most widely used search storage server platform – for Baidu, and other search and big data-heavy companies.

Improving Data Center Performance and Efficiency

Heydari shared partnership highlights between Baidu and Inspur on the Project Scorpio/Open Data Center Committee (ODCC) — an Open Data Center initiative started by Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent since 2010 to collaboratively develop shared technology to reduce TCO and improve data center performance and efficiency, much like the OCP (Open Compute Project) started by Facebook. Baidu has been closely working with Inspur to deploy Open Data Center (ODC)/Scorpio designs throughout their data centers since 2012. Heydari emphasized that Inspur’s energy-saving and reliable products are not only cost-saving and environmentally responsible solutions for Baidu, they are a fundamental contributor to Baidu’s operational stability and overall success. Heydari also introduced next generation rack scale designs for high efficiency 48V power distribution architecture, liquid cooling and indirect evaporative cooling technology that Baidu and Inspur are working on together.

Heydari summarized the major Open Data Center Projects currently available and predicted that the Open Source community shall converge on a common rack level design. “Inspur is working together with the ODCC and OCP communities to drive to a common open platform for rack scale”, said Dolly Wu, Vice GM of American Region, “our engineers are working hard at designing the next generation open rack scale architectures to help our hyperscale customers reduce TCO and deploy infrastructure quickly to support the huge growth in ecommerce business.”
