18 Jan 2017

Huawei’s FusionServer 2288H V3 has been ranked first in TPC Express Benchmark™ Big Bench (TPCx-BB) tests with a scale factor of 3000, according to the latest results released by TPC, an authoritative standard performance evaluation organization.

Shenzhen, China, January 18, 2017

TPCx-BB is a TPC Express benchmark, which is designed to measure the performance of Hadoop based Big Data analytics systems. Its test rankings are widely recognized in the industrial and commercial sectors. TPCx-BB measures the performance of both hardware and software components by executing 30 frequently performed analytical queries in the context of retailers with physical and online store presence. Some of its testing scenarios even use the most popular machine learning algorithms such as K-Means and Naive Bayes. TPCx-BB test results can comprehensively and accurately reveal the overall, end-to-end operating performance of Big Data systems.

TPCx-BB also uses both server performance and price metrics to provide meaningful insights to performance vs cost tradeoff. In the TPCx-BB@3000 test, Huawei’s FusionServer 2288H V3 scored 611.31 for the BBQpm@3000 metric and US$462.55 for the $/BBQpm@3000 metric, which are both the best scores for each respective metric among 2-socket servers.

Each FusionServer 2288H V3 is powered by Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 CPUs that feature the newest 14 nm process. It supports up to 44 cores. The server also holds up to 24 DDR4 DIMMs with 1.5 TB total memory capacity, and uses IOPS- and bandwidth-wise NVMe SSDs as local storage for smoother data computing and transmission. All these features make the server ideal for Big Data scenarios.

Qiu Long, President, IT Server Product Line, Huawei, said: “The ever-growing popularity of Big Data applications poses higher requirements on computing performance and TCO competitiveness. Huawei continues to innovate server design and technologies for optimal performance to stay ahead of ever-changing customer requirements and build the best computing platform in the industry.

“Our outstanding performance in TPCx-BB serves as evidence of our continuous efforts. Our recent launch of a high-performance server with full NVMe SSDs is a breakthrough in overcoming I/O bottlenecks. It can better satisfy customer requirements in the Big Data realm.”

As of 2016 Q3, Huawei server shipments (excluding tower servers) ranked amongst the top 3 positions in the world, delivering the fastest growth rate according to Gartner Research1. Huawei servers are in use at more than 5000 customer locations across the world in different industries including the public sector, internet, telecom, energy, finance, transport, healthcare, education, media, and manufacturing.
