Solution Performance

FusionSphere* of OpenStack* version is Huawei's commercial release with a built-in HUAWEI Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) virtualization engine based. The workload uses the SysBench tool to benchmark MySQL* performance on FusionSphere; it is I/O and memory bound, but not CPU bound. The software is used in Enterprise private cloud, carrier NFV, and public CSP environments.

Challenges

  • Memory and I/O bound applications running FusionSphere limit the number of virtual machines that can be instantiated.
  • Being able to support more VM instances on the same hardware drives better utilization of hardware resources, transparent to the user.

Solution
The MySQL with SysBench benchmark running on HUAWEI FusionSphere is I/O and memory bound. Higher memory capacity offered by Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory delivers improved performance by being able to support more VM instances (see chart for performance improvement).1 2 3 4

Value
Better performance at similar cost - Huawei will benefit from improved performance, i.e., being able to have more VM instances per server, at comparable cost, and while meeting SLA targets for both latency and throughput (transactions per second). This also translates to better, more efficient hardware utilization.
