Huawei servers certified by Nutanix for use in HCI

Nutanix and Huawei are joining forces to roll out Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI). The two parties jointly developed the FusionServer 2288H V5.

Nutanix now also offers Hyper-Converged solutions based on Huawei hardware. The two companies built the FusionServer 2288H V5 together. This dual socket server was specially developed with a few additional technologies to support the roll-out in a Hyper-Converged scenario.

For example, the server is equipped with Huaweis Fault Diagnostic Management (FDM). FDM can predict possible hardware failures seven to 30 days in advance with an accuracy of 93 percent. Dynamic Energy Management technology (DEMT) scales power consumption based on current workloads, enabling savings of up to 15%.


Huawei is a large infrastructure provider that is mainly active in the telecoms market. It is precisely there that the company has come into disrepute in recent months because of accusations of espionage from the American side, which have not been substantiated until now. Nutanix is the market leader in the field of HCI.

Hyper-Converged Infrastructure is a combination of server nodes, where storage is separated from compute and memory. You can combine the nodes together to form a relatively flexible whole. The hardware is then provisioned as needed to run virtualized workloads, which can make flexible use of the available storage and computing power.
