Huawei Latest News & Update: China’s Tech Giant Is Chosen By CERN For Helix Nebula Science Cloud

By Arianne Gift , Updated Nov 25, 2016 02:21 AM EST

CERN is on a mission to use the recent discovery of a particle consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson to disentangle some of the fundamental forces of existence -- and Huawei cloud storage is to be a part of the undertaking. The collaboration will pave way to a European hybrid platform that will enhance the process of analyzing data.

The Chinese tech behemoth, together with German IT services T-Systems, is tasked to design and complete the pilot phase of the Helix Nebula Science Cloud. Huawei and T-Systems will develop the cloud solutions based on the Open TeleKom Cloud by T-Systems. This cloud system currently serves as the support of several companies, small business and public sectors. Open TeleKom Cloud was launched in March 2017.

Huawei UDS Cloud Storage

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) openlab's fourth phase in January ushered the launching of more immersive cooperative activities in projects that involve networking and platforms, databases and automation. Such activities call for an indispensable storage system, which Huawei is committed into developing.

Working with CERN openlab as a contributor will allow Huawei to exhibit the capabilities of its cloud-based Universal Distributed Storage (UDS) system. This will endeavor will meet the challenges of exascale data storage.

Huawei And The Helix Nebula Science Cloud

The Helix Nebula Science Cloud is to be a European hybrid cloud platform capable of supporting high performance and data-intensive cases, reports CloudPro. The project is sponsored by 10 of Europe's top public research organizations. Among 28 companies, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd and T-Systems International GmbH were awarded with the contract.

"Our collaboration with Huawei shows an exciting new approach, where their novel architecture extends the capabilities in preparation for the exascale data rates and volumes we expect in the future," said Head of CERN openlab Bob Jones, via Huawei's official website. CERN's OpenStack public clouds hold more than 7,000 servers and 190,000 cores. Its Helix Nebula Science Cloud will act as a marketplace that will help researchers find cloud solutions apt for their needs.
