Huawei released the OceanStor series of storage solutions, which was developed for operators and enterprises cope with the explosive growth of mass data in the 5G era. Huawei claims that the generation and dissemination of data will become easier, and it is expected that the operator’s business pressure will increase by more than 10 times. Huawei OceanStor storage solutions have entered more than 150 countries around the world.
OceanStor Dorado all-flash is the industry’s first built-in AI chip product, which achieves ultra-low 0.1-millisecond latency through the NVMe architecture and chip acceleration algorithms.
The OceanStor storage solutions released by Huawei offer the following benefits:
- Ultimate performance: OceanStor Dorado all-flash storage adopts the NVMe-based architecture and innovative chip acceleration algorithm to achieve ultra-low latency of 0.1 ms, meeting the requirements of key production services. The SmartMatrix fully interconnected architecture ensures 99.9999% availability for stable and always-on BSS core services even if seven out of eight controllers fail.
- Large capacity: The OceanStor distributed storage adopts new high-density and large-capacity hardware. The 5 U controller enclosure with 120 x 3.5-inch disks provides a capacity of 2.4 PB and a density more than three times the industry average. In terms of the decoupled storage-compute big data solution, with Huawei’s unique elastic EC algorithm, the Pacific hardware achieves a disk utilization of 92%, reducing the TCO of big data services by over 30%, and offering a cost-effective method to mass data storage.
- Simplified management: The data management system (DMS) manages all NEs in a storage system, implementing automatic resource provisioning, proactive risk prevention, quick fault locating, and automatic troubleshooting.
Peter Zhou, President of the Intelligent Data and Storage Domain of Huawei, said, “We are all entering a data-intensive era with 5G, and it has become a priority for Huawei to help carriers and enterprises reduce costs and get the most value out of their data. These solutions enable full lifecycle data management covering collection, storage, computing, management, and usage, and resolve complex problems in mass data management. What’s more, these tailored solutions help reduce data storage costs and improve data utilization for different scenarios, achieving the industry’s best cost and value per bit through the entire data lifecycle.”
