Wiwynn and Chunghwa Telecom Realize the Next Generation Cloud Datacenter Technology
Taipei, June 4, 2018— Wiwynn, an innovative cloud IT infrastructure provider of high quality computing and storage products, plus rack solutions for data centers, today announced its cooperation with Chunghwa Telecom (CHT) to verify the CHT Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) solution based on Wiwynn’s Open Compute Project (OCP) rack, Wiwynn® Cluster Manager and Intel® Rack Scale Design (Intel® RSD) in CHT data center. This is to address the demand of dynamic and agile resource management for workload optimization by introducing SDDC infrastructure into data centers.
Wiwynn® Cluster Manager with Intel RSD is a system software that makes data center easier to manage with features such as resource planning, massive firmware and OS deployment, real-time rack level visual monitoring. Intel® RSD is an open architecture that disaggregates hardware from preconfigured servers and deploys them in sharable resource pools. With the integrated solution and compliant IT equipment, data center operators can enjoy real-time resource management, agile node composition for required workloads, and optimized hardware utilization.
The Chunghwa Telecom-verified Cluster Manager platform is integrated with Intel RSD 2.2 and equipped with a new remote monitoring function—Telemetry. Data center managers can get instant details of the utilization of processors, memory, storage devices, and switches while monitoring the power consumption and overall health status of each node plus the entire rack. Wiwynn will showcase Intel RSD 2.3 at its Computex booth at Taipei International Convention Center.
“Wiwynn® Cluster Manager with Intel® RSD empowers cloud service providers, telecoms, and enterprises to build their own agile, efficient, software-defined data centers to meet dynamic workload changes while expanding their global services or 5G technologies,” said Sunlai Chang, Senior Vice President and CTO at Wiwynn. “Wiwynn works with Intel and ecosystem partners to build proof-of-concept (POC) sites in the United States, Japan and Taiwan for the needs of customer verifications. It is our pleasure to work with Chunghwa Telecom to bring the latest technologies to Taiwan and maximize the value for Taiwan data center industry.”
“As a leading cloud server provider, Chunghwa Telecom continues to adopt the latest technologies to provide reliable and complete resource monitoring and management as well as high speed fiber networks for customers including domestic and international ISPs as well as game and OTT providers,” said Hung-Tsan Ma, General Manager of Data Communication Business Group at Chunghwa Telecom. “Through the collaboration with Wiwynn and investment in innovative cloud service technologies, we look forward to maximizing values for our customers in the future.”
“With Wiwynn’s worldwide Intel® RSD POC sites, we will accelerate our collaborations with Wiwynn to provide validation support for worldwide cloud service providers and telco customers,” said John Healy, Vice President and Data Center Group General Manager at Intel. “Through collaboration with Wiwynn and CHT, we look forward to more data centers benefiting from the open and agile framework of Intel RSD.”
