At the Huawei Global Analyst Summit (HAS) 2020, Huawei released new members to the OceanStor Storage Series family.

Dr. Peter Zhou (pictured above), President of Huawei Data Storage & Intelligent Vision Product Line, announces the new line-up to the OceanStor Storage Series to Advance Data Infrastructure.

These solutions and products cover data storage, management, and protection, acting as the building blocks for a converged, intelligent, and open data infrastructure.

OceanStor Dorado Series with Innovative FlashLink 2.0 Raises the Bar for Performance

Huawei OceanStor Dorado Series now unveils FlashLink 2.0 technology, including E2E enhanced NVMe Over Fabric (NoF) and intelligent disk-controller collaboration. This development is the latest milestone following joint innovations in architecture, protocols, and algorithms based on the previous FlashLink and SmartMatrix technologies. FlashLink 2.0 supercharges storage systems to deliver an industry-leading 20 million IOPS and 0.1 ms latency, reshaping the storage industry with premium performance. What's more, service efficiency sees multi-fold increase in scenarios, such as large-scale 5G billing of carriers and ultra-high concurrency of online transactions.

Huawei OceanStor Pacific Series Storage Establishes a New Benchmark for Mass Storage

Huawei OceanStor Pacific Series storage adopts the butterfly-wing design and VC phase-change heat dissipation, helping effectively address mass storage issues in the terms of center of gravity and heat dissipation. It achieves 30% resource utilization improvements and up to 62.5% footprint reduction in equipment rooms with the intelligent EC algorithm, vNode hardware architecture, multi-protocol interworking (block, file, object, and HDFS), and decoupled storage-compute solution, yielding optimal costs for mass data storage and processing. Already deployed in a wide range of environments, the Huawei OceanStor Pacific Series is set to be extensively used in mass data processing scenarios, such as human genome sequencing and processing of carriers' millions of CDRs.

Huawei FusionCube 500: the Optimal Choice for Small-Scale Edge Scenarios

FusionCube 500 is an edge data storage product designed for small-scale edge scenarios. It features one-stop 5-in-1 integration (computing, storage, network, security, and AI) in a 5 U space and is perfect for scenarios that require local data processing, such as small enterprise branches and safe production in coal mines. With superb flexibility and adaptability, FusionCube 500 can be deployed in common office environments, outdoor cabinets, and equipment rooms, helping customers greatly reduce deployment costs.

Huawei Data Management System (DMS) Uses AI to Drive Simplified, Converged, and Intelligent Data Management

Huawei DMS simplifies data management by allowing users to deliver I/Os or create protection volumes in just three steps. It leverages data management engine (DME) software for full-lifecycle management and converges management functions from OceanStor DJ, SystemReporter, eReplication, and eSight to streamline data exchange between different login interfaces, while also achieving end-to-end data automation and analytics. In terms of intelligence, Huawei DMS works with the eService cloud-based intelligent O&M platform to proactively detect disk faults and performance problems through mass data connections and model training, yielding a fault location accuracy of 93%.

Huawei OceanStor Data Protection Appliance and Blu-Ray Storage Enrich Full-Lifecycle Data Protection Solutions

Huawei OceanStor data protection appliance makes copies immediately ready after mounting so that backup storage can directly take over production, shortening the RTO from hours to minutes. Blu-ray storage is important for Huawei's archiving solutions and has distinct advantages in data security and cost. The read-only and write-once Blu-ray discs prevent data modification and are highly resistant to viruses and electromagnetic interference for the highest level of security. In terms of cost, the 50-year lifespan of Blu-ray media effectively lowers the TCO for long-term storage.

Huawei OceanStor storage solutions have been deployed in more than 150 countries for more than 12,000 customers in a variety of industries, including carriers, finance, government, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, and transportation. Huawei OceanStor storage has become the ideal choice for storing and processing core service data worldwide.
