Shenzen, China: V5, with 5.2 billion initial records, broke the record of 4-socket servers by delivering 5,293 queries per hour in Phase 2 (Query Executionsper Hour).
Huawei FusionServer Pro 2488H V5 houses four Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors in a 2U space, with 48 DDR4 DIMMs and up to twenty-five 2.5-inch drives for local storage, and runs on the Intel® Optane™ persistent memory (PMem) 100 series to provide ultra-large memory capacity and superb performance.
Huawei became a global technology partner of SAP in 2012, and over the past eight years, it has innovated together with SAP to release the leading Huawei SAP HANA solutions. These solutions are designed to supercharge various industries and are currently used in 25 industries, including retail, manufacturing, energy, technology, and finance in more than 40 countries and regions.
These come when Huawei is vowing that it is in survival mode as continuous “attacks” from the United States threaten to choke off the Chinese company’s access to key technology.
“Huawei is in a difficult situation these days. Nonstop aggression from the US government has put us under significant pressure,” the company’s rotating chief executive Guo Ping said at a conference on Wednesday.
Washington has ramped up pressure on Huawei, issuing fresh sanctions in May and August that further restrict the company’s access to the leading edge computer chips it needs to manufacture smartphones, 5G networking gear and other products.
semiconductor companies that use American software and technology to design and manufacture chips can no longer sell to Huawei without first obtaining a license from the US Commerce Department. US regulators say Huawei poses a national security risk, alleging that the Chinese government could use Huawei equipment to spy. The company has repeatedly denied those allegations.
Analysts have called the latest US sanctions a “lethal blow” and a “death sentence” for the company. “The United States has been continuously attacking us and [the latest restriction] has posed great challenges to our operations,” Guo told reporters.
Major chipmakers such as Qualcomm () and SK Hynix applied for licenses to sell to Huawei, according to CGTN. China’s biggest chipmaker, SMIC, said in a statement that it has also “submitted license applications covering several Huawei products,” without going into detail.
AMD obtaining a license “is logical to us since Huawei’s ability to produce notebook computers should not create a national security risk to the United States,” Lee wrote in a note on Sunday.
Huawei’s telecommunications gear is another matter. The Trump administration has been urging countries around the world to ban Huawei equipment from their 5G telecom networks.
Several key countries for months resisted cutting off Huawei entirely. But that changed after US restrictions announced in May, barring chip companies from manufacturing chips designed by Huawei affiliate HiSilicon.
The United Kingdom in July banned Huawei from its 5G network, reversing a January decision to allow it a limited role in the build-out. UK officials cited uncertainty surrounding Huawei’s supply chain as the reason for the rapid about-face.
Since then, things have only gotten worse for Huawei. The company is facing the likelihood of “a near-total cutoff of semiconductors dealing a lethal blow to China’s most important global technology company,” Paul Triolo, head of geo technology at Eurasia Group, wrote in a research note last month.
The US restrictions issued in August are intended to expand the number of chip companies required to apply for licenses to supply to Huawei, “with a presumption of denial,” he wrote.
