Most importantly: Fault Diagnosis & Management (FDM) that locates faults with 93% accuracy and 7–30 day prewarning. Dynamic Energy Management Technology (DEMT) that dynamically senses service workloads and adjusts power consumption to save up to 15% energy. This is what Huawei claims.
Huawei, one of the bigger server vendors stating that they have an ecosystem of openness. Therefore they have joined hands with Nutanix, a global HCI solution leader. Their combined strengths will simplify data centers and bring more value and more options to customers in the HCI market.
