Business Challenges
  • Great challenge to Computing Capabilities

    With the rapid development of genomic sequencing technology, data volumes for genomic sequencing have surged. As a result, the computing capacity cannot meet the requirements of the increasing data.

  • Low Data Analysis and Interpretation Efficiency

    Sequencing a person's genome generates at least 1.5 TB data each time, which takes traditional IT devices at least six days to analyze and interpret.

  • High IT Investment Costs

    The construction, deployment, O&M, and capacity expansion of IT clusters is complex. Increasing requirements for computing server performance results in higher IT infrastructure costs.

  • Difficult Data Sharing and Storage

    The transmission, sharing, storage, and I/O performance for this massive amount of data needs to be improved.

Typical Scenarios
  • Genomic Sequencing

  • Genetic Test

Genomic Sequencing

Genomic sequencing applications demand high-performance computing. Computing requirements vary depending on different sequence contents. Huawei's HPC solution provides end-to-end computing services for enterprises focusing on genomic sequencing.

  1. Scalable and High-performance ECS

    Provides various types of Elastic Cloud Server (ECS) instances and dozens of configurations including the fat nodes based on Bare Metal Server (BMS) instances to meet different HPC application requirements for computing and memory capacity. ECS types include H1 (high computing I, which uses a 10GE network), H2 (ultra-high computing II, which uses a 100 Gbit/s InfiniBand network), FPGA, P1 (Artificial Intelligence), and M1 (memory optimization type).

  2. Excellent-performance BMS

    Provides excellent computing performance using dedicated physical servers, avoiding loss due to virtualization and offering industry-leading performance. It allows you to automatically provision BMS on the management console, fully meeting scalability and flexibility requirements for HPC services.

  3. High-performance Lustre Parallel File System

    Uses optimized and dedicated ECS and Elastic Volume Service (EVS) to deploy Lustre file system. Each Object Storage Server (OSS) provides up to 4.5 Gbit/s throughput, with the whole system providing up to 2 Tbit/s throughput. File capacity is up to 32 PB, to fully meet the file system requirements of HPC.

  4. Distributed and Scalable Block Storage Service

    Allows EVS to be attached to each ECS on demand and offers storage space for HPC computing and storage nodes. Each disk provides up to 32 TB of capacity, 20,000 IOPS, and 350 MB/s throughput.
