China's Sohu Picks 3Com's H3C for Next Gen Data Center

Sohu, one of China's leading search engines and online destinations, has selected 3Com's H3C data center solutions to build a next-generation data center. Sohu made its decision after a two-month field test of H3C's recently launched data center solutions portfolio -- including the S12500 Series core switch line and the S5800 Series 10-gigabit switch series. Financial terms of the exclusive network supplier contract were not disclosed.

As the first third-generation interactive Chinese search engine launched by Sohu, www.sogou.com is vital to the company's future business prospects and development. Sogou's launch requires a data center platform that can support storage of 10 billion Web pages; a Web page update and rating system; high-performance, concurrent access to and from numerous server clusters; and flexible expansion in years ahead.
