Huawei Releases New Storage Solution to Build Data Infrastructure in the Multi-Cloud Era
[Barcelona, Spain, February 27, 2023] At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) Barcelona 2023, Huawei launched a series of innovative storage products and solutions to help global carriers build a trustworthy storage foundation in the multi-cloud era.
Dr. Peter Zhou, President of Huawei IT Product Line, delivers a speech
At the Huawei product & solution launch event, Dr. Peter Zhou, President of Huawei IT Product Line, noted that carriers face three major storage challenges as they move from traditional IT/CT services to new services such as video, big data, and cloud. Mass unstructured data is becoming a deciding factor in production, as 80% of new data is unstructured. Aside from system failures, hacker attacks, notably ransomware, have become large threats to data security. According to the FLEXERA™ 2022 State of the Cloud, 89% of enterprises use multiple cloud platforms, and new data applications, such as distributed databases and big data, are booming.
To address the challenges of new data, new applications, and new resilience, Huawei launched a series of storage products and solutions to help carriers build a trustworthy storage foundation and innovate services in the multi-cloud era.
- Huawei offers a full series of products and solutions for data production, backup, and archiving to cover all scenarios and provide tiered storage of hot, warm, and cold data. The proportion of cold data exceeds 70%, requiring low-cost archiving. In response, Huawei launched the Blu-ray storage, which has a longer service life and reduces the TCO by 70%.
- Carriers' cloud data centers generally adopt the "server + local disk" architecture. This results in high data migration costs and three times the storage space overheads. To resolve this issue, Huawei has launched OceanDisk, the industry's first professional storage for diskless architecture with decoupled storage and compute and data reduction coding technologies, reducing space and energy consumption by 40%.
- As for ransomware attacks, Huawei's all-domain end-to-end ransomware protection storage solution provides double protection for production and backup storage. Huawei storage provides 4-layer data protection policies, ransomware detection, data anti-tamper, isolation zone through the air-gap technology, and end-to-end data breach prevention, to ensure that storage is the last line of defense for data security.
- To move with the cloud development trends, Huawei has launched the multi-cloud storage solution, which supports intelligent cross-cloud data tiering and a unified cross-cloud data view. This solution realizes the free flow of data across clouds, which protects customers' existing investments and achieves the lowest TCO. The solution also interconnects with the container platform to ensure that applications can be deployed across clouds, helping customers easily deploy new services.
"We are entering an era of YB data. Data apps are booming. Huawei data storage will fully embrace new cloud-native applications to help carriers build leading data infrastructure in the multi-cloud era," said Dr. Peter Zhou.
By 2022, Huawei storage had served more than 400 carriers around the world. OceanStor Dorado has been named a Leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage for 7 consecutive years. OceanStor Pacific was recognized as a 2022 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage. Huawei OceanProtect was validated as the Next-Gen Backup Storage System by Evaluator Group, a world-renowned IT analysis company.
