Huawei Technologies, Co.Ltd Data Center Autonomous Driving Network - Huawei CloudFabric Openness

Document number: 220113
Release Date: 06 Apr 2020

In recent years, the biggest change within enterprise IT has been the development of traditional physical servers towards virtualization, cloud computing, and containers. The rapid development brings tremendous changes to compute and storage, and drives data center networks (DCNs) towards automation and intelligence. For example, SDN enables dynamic provisioning of network functions and provides elastic networks that collaborate with compute resources to quickly adapt to the development of new services in data centers. This requires DCNs to provide openness at different layers. In this way, customers can quickly customize and change networks based on service requirements to implement quick integration of IT systems and support rapid service rollout.

Tolly evaluated the openness of Huawei CloudFabric Autonomous Driving Network Solution.

Huawei CloudFabric solution consists of the following core components: iMaster NCE-Fabric (the data center autonomous driving network management and control system), and CloudEngine data center switches. Based on standard protocols, the solution implements multi-layer openness of the entire fabric and can quickly integrate and interoperate with third-party platforms and devices.

Huawei Technologies, Co.Ltd Huawei CloudCampus Solution vs. Cisco DNA Solution

Document number: 219140
Release Date: 21 Nov 2019

As enterprise digitalization rapidly accelerates, traditional Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is unable to address service development requirements in terms of efficiency and cost. As such, new technologies including automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are required to provide solutions for these digital transformation challenges, which include low Operations and Maintenance (O&M) efficiency due to increasingly complex ICT systems. As a result, these innovative technologies enable enterprises to step into the data-driven intelligent era.

Huawei commissioned Tolly to independently evaluate both the Huawei CloudCampus solution and the Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) solution across four dimensions: • Automated network management: How does the network solution provide simpler design, planning, and policy deployment capabilities for medium- to large-sized campus networks?

• Intelligent O&M and experience assurance: How does the network solution use AI-powered intelligent O&M tools to visualize, predict, locate, and automatically rectify faults in a simplified and more intuitive manner?

• Network security: Does the network solution support faster automatic threat identification and proactive defense, thereby reducing enterprises risks?

• Network openness: Is the network solution open enough to quickly integrate with industrial applications, so that the network can help enterprises digitalize services?

Document number: 219147
Release Date: 04 Nov 2019

Virtualization and cloud computing environments demand both flexibility and high-performance switching. The Lenovo ThinkSystem NE2552E Flex Switch paired with the ThinkSystem QLogic QL45214 25Gb Ethernet adapter provides both. Slotting into the Lenovo Flex System Enterprise chassis, this switch offers up to 52 ports of 25GbE or 36 ports of 25GbE combined with 4 ports of 100GbE. The QL45214 provides high-performance, 25GbE server connectivity.

Lenovo commissioned Tolly to evaluate the performance and capacity of the NE2552E along with L2/L3 interoperability with the Cisco Systems Nexus 9000 switch. Testing also validated the performance benefits of using 25GbE rather than 10GbE for VMware vMotion virtual machine migration using the QLogic. QL45214 Ethernet adapter.

The Lenovo switches and QL45214 tested delivered wire-speed performance and low latency, demonstrated L2/L3 table capacity and illustrated the performance benefits of 25GbE for virtualized environments. Additionally, the switch demonstrated a range of L2 and L3 interoperability with the Cisco Systems 9000 switch.

Document number: 219142
Release Date: 14 Sep 2019

Intelligence is becoming a key requirement of networks, especially for wireless ones. However, O&M — a critical part of network operations — is often not intelligent enough and encounters issues such as low calibration efficiency, proneness to errors, and lack of comprehensive network situation awareness. The application of AI to networks helps tackle these pressing issues. With AI, networks can be trained and analyzed based on big data about the network situation and user behavior, implementing intelligent decision-making and proactive network optimization.

Document number: 217130
Release Date: 11 Aug 2017

Software-defined networking (SDN) is poised to modernize the data center. Simplicity, flexibility and virtualization-awareness are hallmarks of SDN. Pluribus Networks goes beyond basic SDN architectures with its Netvisor Network Operating System. The Netvisor software is a fully abstracted and virtualized Network OS that provides a best-in-class layer 2 and layer 3 networking foundation with a distributed fabric intelligence. Netvisor virtualizes the Open Switch hardware allowing a single switch to instantiate multiple virtualized network devices. Netvisor enables the Adaptive Cloud Fabric which operates without a controller to deliver an elastic and distributed network. The, scale-out architecture delivers multi-terabit capacity with predictable performance and latency and supports millions of concurrent connections.

Pluribus Networks commissioned Tolly to benchmark the performance of its Netvisor software deployed on a Freedom E68-M Leaf Switch to evaluate the fault tolerance and scalability of the OS when connected to a Core/Spine consisting of a Cisco Nexus switch and a Freedom E28Q-L. Testing was conducted in May 2016.

The Pluribus Netvisor-powered Leaf Switch delivered line-rate throughput. In tests of fault tolerance the Netvisor OS-powered switches exhibited rapid failover/failback response times. Additionally, the solution proved scalable with support for large numbers of BGP and OSPF routes, ACLs, analytics entries and so forth.
