BANGKOK, Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --
Focused on helping enterprises unlock the power of their data, Huawei provided
a range of storage products and solutions featuring scenario-specific
technologies for different industries, at Huawei Connect 2022. The vision
behind the storage portfolio, explained by Dr. Peter Zhou, President of Huawei
IT Product Line, is "to build a data-centric, trustworthy storage foundation
for diverse applications" in scenarios like production and transactions, data
analytics, and data protection.
Huawei believes data storage in the digital era faces four major changes:
1. New data applications are continuously created, from conventional databases
to distributed database, big data, and AI applications.
2. Data is getting hotter and hotter, requiring much faster real-time data
analytics and processing.
3. Natural disasters and human-caused errors are frequent, resulting in
enormous losses. Therefore, enterprises' digital resilience needs urgent
4. Energy-efficient data storage is a major industry direction and becoming the
Huawei actively embraces these changes, with a series of premium storage
products and solutions for different industry scenarios.
Production and transactions
OceanStor Dorado All-Flash Storage provides SAN and NAS capabilities with
leading reliability and performance, especially for the financial core baking
and Hospital Information Systems (HIS) scenarios. NAS and SAN both take
advantage of FlashLink disk-controller collaboration algorithms and SmartMatrix
full-mesh architecture. In addition, the OceanStor Dorado provides the
industry's only active-active NAS solution, ensuring the file service
OceanStor Pacific Scale-Out Storage breaks down the performance, protocols, and
capacity bottlenecks of data analytics using technical architecture
breakthroughs, such as data flow that adapts to large and small I/Os,
ultra-high-density hardware, and Erasure Coding (EC) algorithms, improving the
data analysis processing efficiency by over 30%.
Huawei Storage provides comprehensive data protection against natural disasters
or man-made mistakes. In terms of disaster recovery (DR), Huawei provides
multiple DR solutions, such as local HA, intra-city A-A, and geo-redundant 3DC.
To back up service data, OceanProtect delivers 3x higher backup bandwidth and
5x higher recovery bandwidth than peer products, along with an ultimate 72:1
data reduction ratio. Huawei ransomware protection storage solution covers
primary storage and backup storage, and uses machine learning models to detect
ransomware, with a detection rate of 99%.
Speaking of O&M, the traditional mode is time-consumed and labor-intensive.
Huawei DME enables full-lifecycle automation across planning, deployment, O&M,
and optimization; predicts disk faults 14 days in advance, and capacity 90 days
in advance; and frees O&M personnel from complicated tasks so that they can
focus on more innovative tasks.
Nowadays, the container technology is gaining more popularity, especially in
Internet and finance sectors. OceanStor Dorado NAS decouples containerized
applications from storage so that application and storage resources can be
expanded on demand; provides cross-node data sharing; and improves resource
scheduling efficiency by 30% compared with industry benchmarks.
A combination of public and private multi-clouds is proven the best choice for
cloud transformation. Centralized data storage sharing and cross-cloud
application deployment are the optimal multi-cloud architecture for
enterprises. Storage vendors can deploy professional storage on public cloud
platforms in software-hardware integrated or software-only mode to help
facilitate cross-cloud evolution. Huawei Storage is endeavoring in such
Peter Zhou noted that, "we are in an era of data explosion and data
applications are booming. Huawei Data Storage is committed to building a
data-centric, trustworthy storage foundation for diverse applications to
unleash the power of data-driven productivity."
