China’s Huawei unveils chip for global big data market

China’s Huawei unveils chip for global big data market

Huawei's TaiShan server series debuted in conjunction with the Kunpeng 920, and is available in three variants.

The first model focuses on storage while another aims for high density and a third focusses on balancing both.

The Kunpeng 920 CPU will perform 25% higher than the industry benchmark and consumes 30% less power than industry counterparts.

He said the new 64-core chip and the new ARM-based TaiShan server were responding to the rapid proliferation of data and devices and the need for specific goal chips and servers. It is also facing bans in New Zealand, Australia, a likely ban in Japan, and a ban for government installations in the USA, plus pressure from United States officials on domestic mobile network operators and foreign governments to boycott the company's products. In addition, the single-slot speed is twice that of the incumbent offering, effectively improving the performance of storage and various accelerators.

In a statement, the company said the new processor was meant for use in situations involving big data, distributed storage and ARM native application.

William Xu, Director of the Board and Chief Strategy Marketing Officer of Huawei unveils industry's highest-performance ARM-based CPU called Kunpeng 920.

William Xu, director, chief strategy marketing officer, chairman of the Investment Review Board of Huawei, speaks during an unveiling ceremony for a processor chip in Shenzhen, China, on January 7, 2019. The chip has unique advantages in performance and power consumption.

"Huawei has continuously innovated in the computing domain in order to create customer value".

Huawei Technologies Ltd. unveiled a processor chip Monday for data centres and cloud computing in a bid by the biggest global maker of telecom equipment to expand into new markets despite Western warnings the company might be a security risk. Huawei has been working with industry organizations such as Green Computing Consortium (GCC), Linaro, and Open Edge and HPC Initiative (OEHI) to build an open, collaborative industry ecosystem, alongside partners such as Hortonworks, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, SUSE, Ubuntu, and China Standard Software. Amazon does not publish exact specifications of hardware used in AWS, generally, though Graviton CPUs are understood to operate at 2.3 GHz with 16 cores, using 2015-era Cortex-A72 designs. For example, big data applications, distributed storage, and some edge computing scenarios have specific energy efficiency requirements for many-core high-performance computing. Xu tried to play down suggestions the Kunpeng 920 might compete directly with Intel, a major supplier to Huawei.
