Today’s digital era is creating huge surges of enterprise data fueled by technologies such as the Internet of Things, big data, analytics, mobility and social media. Enterprises are challenged to find effective storage and management solutions to keep pace with this explosive data growth while eliminating complexity and costs and preparing for cloud adoption.

The STaaS solution manages SAN, NAS, object, and other storage equipment in a single pane, to support a ‘Data on Demand’ approach. The consolidation of storage assets into resource pools, on-demand allocations, and improved resource utilization help enterprises reduce TCO by 20%. In addition, self-help service catalogs, a high-level of automation in resource allocation, intelligent prediction capabilities, and decision-making support are integrated to improve data management efficiency by as much as 50%.

The solution introduces a unified architecture that enables users to choose from rich service catalogs and SLAs, while delivering a consistent on- and off-premise experience and enabling a smooth migration to the cloud. Enterprises can also avoid vendor lock-in by embracing an open architecture which includes a high-level of collaboration within a robust ecosystem.

In Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays, Huawei was named as a leader, with nearly 7,000 customers worldwide choosing Huawei’s innovative offerings to address their complex storage needs.

Meng Guangbin, President, IT Storage Product Line, Huawei, said, "As cloud enablement continues to accelerate, there is no doubt that IT services will become a more prominent part of data center operations. Our STaaS solution consolidates on- and off-premise resources and delivers standardized, automated, and on-demand data storage services to increase agility in enterprise cloud transformations."

All-flash arrays are becoming the preferred choice for many enterprises to build their cloud platforms and core service systems. At the launch, Huawei demonstrated its all-flash OceanStor Dorado V3, purpose built to handle data-intensive enterprise applications. The array lineup keeps response times down to 500μs with the highest levels of performance and 99.999% reliability to address enterprise storage needs of the digital era.

Huawei STaaS solution will be officially launched from today onwards. Huawei OceanStor Dorado V3 is being globally launched. For more details, visit:
