Huawei Launches Storage Wallet to Find the Right Tech for the Right Scenario

BANGKOK, September 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Striving to help businesses unleash the power of their data, Huawei provided a range of storage products and solutions including scenario-specific technologies for different industries during Huawei Connect 2022. vision behind the storage wallet, explained by Dr. Pierre Zhoupresident of Huawei IT Product Line, is to “build a reliable and data-centric storage foundation for various applications” in scenarios such as production and transactions, data analysis, and data protection.

Huawei believes that data storage in the digital age faces four major changes:

1. New data applications are continually being created, from conventional databases to distributed database, big data and AI applications.

2. Data is getting hotter and hotter, which requires much faster real-time data analysis and processing.

3. Natural disasters and man-made errors are frequent and lead to huge losses. Therefore, the digital resilience of businesses needs to be improved urgently.

4. Energy-efficient data storage is a major industry direction and is becoming the new norm.

Huawei is actively embracing these changes, with a series of high-end storage products and solutions for different industrial scenarios.

Production and transaction

OceanStor Dorado All-Flash storage provides SAN and NAS capabilities with industry-leading reliability and performance, especially for basic financial and Hospital Information Systems (HIS) cooking scenarios. Both NAS and SAN take advantage of FlashLink disk controller collaboration algorithms and SmartMatrix full-mesh architecture. Additionally, the OceanStor Dorado provides the industry’s only active-active NAS solution, ensuring continuity of file service.

Data analysis

OceanStor Pacific Scale-Out Storage breaks down performance, protocol, and capacity bottlenecks of data analytics using technical architecture breakthroughs, such as data flow that scales to large I/O and small, ultra-high density hardware and erasure coding (EC) algorithms, improving the processing efficiency of data analysis by more than 30%.

Data protection

Huawei Storage provides comprehensive data protection against natural disasters or human-made errors. In terms of disaster recovery (DR), Huawei provides multiple DR solutions, such as local high availability, intra-city AA, and geo-redundant 3DC. For backing up service data, OceanProtect offers 3x the backup bandwidth and 5x the recovery bandwidth of peer products, along with an ultimate data reduction ratio of 72:1. Huawei’s ransomware protection storage solution covers primary storage and backup storage, and uses machine learning models to detect ransomware, with a detection rate of 99%.

Automatic management

Speaking of O&M, the traditional mode is time-consuming and labor-intensive. Huawei DME enables full lifecycle automation from planning, deployment, operation and maintenance, and optimization; predicts drive failure 14 days in advance and capacity 90 days in advance; and frees O&M staff from complicated tasks so they can focus on more innovative tasks.

Container storage

Nowadays, container technology is gaining popularity, especially in the internet and finance industries. OceanStor Dorado NAS decouples containerized applications from storage so application and storage resources can be expanded on demand; provides data sharing between nodes; and improves resource planning efficiency by 30% over industry benchmarks.

Multi cloud

A combination of public and private multi-clouds has proven to be the best choice for cloud transformation. Centralized sharing of data storage and cross-cloud application deployment is the optimal multi-cloud architecture for enterprises. Storage providers can deploy enterprise storage on public cloud platforms in software-integrated hardware or software-only mode to facilitate cross-cloud scaling. Huawei Storage strives in such innovative practice.

Pierre Zhou noted that “we are in an era of data explosion and data applications are booming. Huawei Data Storage is committed to creating a reliable, data-centric storage foundation for various applications to unleash the power of data-driven productivity.”
