Huawei Announces Expanded Alliance with SAP and Launches FusionCube Solution for SAP HANA(R) at CeBIT 2014

HANNOVER, Germany, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei, a leading information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, announced at CeBIT 2014 that it has expanded its alliance with SAP, deepening its relationship through large-scale collaborations planned across multiple offerings and practices. Building on the foundation of collaboration, Huawei has launched the Huawei FusionCube solution for SAP HANA® to enhance its support for the in-memory computing platform. In addition, Huawei has also announced plans for further collaboration with SAP on "smart city" and bring your own device (BYOD) solutions.

Huawei celebrates alliance with SAP

"Huawei is delighted to deepen our partnership with SAP, the world leader in enterprise applications and fastest-growing database provider. Through complementing each other's strengths, we hope to bring our relationship to a whole new level," said Mr. William Xu, Chief Strategy Marketing Officer of Huawei. "The ICT industry has been facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities, enabling ICT infrastructure to gradually become a core focus of enterprises. Moving forward, Huawei will emphasize our strategy to integrate with the industry ecosystem and to continue to focus on the 'pipe' segment of Huawei's overall 'cloud, pipe, device strategy'. Through open collaboration with our strategic partners, we will continue to provide leading innovative and differentiated products and solutions, working to achieve our goal to become an optimal partner for ICT innovation."

"Huawei's in-depth experience with ICT infrastructure has complemented SAP's strengths in platform and enterprise software solutions, and has further enhanced the benefits that the SAP HANA platform provides to enterprise customers," said Alex Atzberger, chief of staff, SAP. "Going forward, we believe the partnership will create more technical synergies, helping lead to enterprise solutions that will bring even more value to enterprise customers in China, Europe, and emerging markets."

SAP HANA is the market-leading in-memory computing platform that can be deployed either as an appliance or in the cloud, and is ideally suited to run real-time analytics and applications. Huawei's ongoing commitment to innovate for optimal use of the SAP HANA platform has led to the FusionCube solution, the newest converged infrastructure solution from Huawei, which provides a scale-out solution to extend the scalability and agility of SAP HANA even further.

Highlights of the Huawei FusionCube solution for SAP HANA are follows:

  • Performance: SAP HANA benefits from low latency IO to synchronize data into persistent storage. FusionCube offers 5 times less IO latency and 15 times more IO bandwidth than a leading alternative solution. SAP HANA running on FusionCube shows faster read/write, faster data loading, and faster system recovery because of its IO performance.
  • Agility: FusionCube's innovative software-based storage is based on a distributed system design that enables high scalability and high IO performance. The system can scale smoothly and on-demand in dimensions including size of the memory and volume of storage.
  • Simplicity: FusionCube is converged infrastructure that saves space and improves computing density. It also has a unified management interface that covers computing, storage and networking all from one interface. These features can help to reduce operational and maintenance costs by as much as 30%. The time to deploy FusionCube in the field can be days rather than months.

Huawei has been adopting a reporting system based on SAP HANA for internal inventory planning, so that time needed for generating reports could be reduced from 10 minutes to 1 minute, helping Huawei to increase cost-saving and user satisfaction. Meanwhile, after a series of rigorous proof-of-concept tests, SAP Labs China has chosen to adopt Huawei's appliance for SAP HANA for customer support, development, testing and demonstration/exhibition purposes. This is largely based on the solution's features, including high performance, scalability, reliability, as well as simplified management mechanism. Since the launch of the FushionCube solution, a number of enterprises and organizations have deployed scale applications of FushionCube in China and other parts of the world, including a leading securities company in Spain, Shanghai Maritime University and Jiangsu Branch of China Mobile in China.

Huawei and SAP have also agreed to further explore opportunities together in various areas including "smart city" and BYOD. Huawei is committed to innovations that will make smart cities a reality. This approach complements SAP® Urban Matters, an initiative to help create best-run cities by enabling effective public administration and environmental, social and economic sustainability. The construction of smart cities is a monumental task that will require the cooperation from all levels of governments, citizens, infrastructure, technology providers, among other stakeholders. For this reason, Huawei will provide innovative ICT infrastructure solutions so that partners can join in the value chain.

In the smart city domain, SAP and Huawei will work together to collaborate to develop  smart city solutions for government entities and public organizations in key cities in China, Middle East, Europe, Africa and other emerging markets. Huawei will provide ICT infrastructure, like enterprise LTE system, network, server and storage, cloud computing infrastructure, contact center, video surveillance, telepresence, the hardware system for running SAP HANA, and micro data center, while SAP will provide the software and in-memory technology and other software solutions.  

In the BYOD sector, Huawei will work with SAP in an effort to develop an innovative, "mobility-in-a-box" solution for the enterprise mobility market that is expected to open up a new era for BYOD. Today's enterprise mobile office needs automation, but also needs to drive new service channels and to enhance asset and logistics management. Huawei  envisions a cost-effective, efficient and secure solution that will provide an anytime, anywhere professional and secure office environment on Huawei smart devices and that is expected to integrate with industry applications from SAP. Tailored to specific industry processes and needs, the solution will be designed to help ensure that companies can have their back-end management systems extended to smart devices. SAP will provide the overall mobile enterprise application platform for Huawei's AnyOffice platform. The collaboration will initially focus on the apparel and footwear, consumer packaged goods, stated-owned enterprise, and energy industries.

Working together with SAP, Huawei will seek to develop integrated and breakthrough solutions that will help address the changing needs of enterprises and industries in the continuously evolving ICT landscape.
