Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, has launched four unified storage products (OceanStor T series) and four high-end servers (Tecal series) for the enterprise industry.
Under the theme ‘Simplify your business, accelerate your success’, the OceanStor T unified storage series will provide enterprise businesses with greater intelligence and simplicity in the cloud era, while the Tecal high-end servers will deliver substantially more powerful performance and reliability.
With 11 year R&D history in IT field, Huawei provides a range of servers, storage products, cloud computing and data center solutions. Furthermore, Huawei has formed the structure with network as the basis, computing and storage as the core force, security as the safeguard and application as orientation.
The OceanStor T series delivers high performance levels in an all in one solution that unifies the file-level data, block-level data, storage protocols, and the interface management, while leveraging efficiency improvement mechanisms to maximize customers’ return on investment. The OceanStor T series contains four product models: OceanStor S2600T, OceanStor S5500T, OceanStor S5600T, and OceanStor S5800 for a wide scope of applications, including large database OLTP/OLAP, high-performance computing, digital media, Internet commerce, central storage, data backup, disaster recovery, and data migration.
"Huawei constantly increases its investment in storage intelligence, and enables its storage products to achieve simplified management and low TCO," said Kim Wang, analyst from ESG-Sino. "Huawei storage products can meet the changing performance requirements of diversified applications."
A T series storage system can provide massive PB level storage capacity for various types of service data, while maintaining a simplified IT architecture. This in turn reduces management complexity and total cost of ownership. The OceanStor T series also incorporates self-developed Smart series software (SmartMotion, SmartTier, SmartCache, SmartThin, and SmartQoS), which achieves the intelligent functions of: global data relocation, dynamic storage tiering, service acceleration, data thin provisioning and service quality control. These hardware and software advantages enable the OceanStor T series to provide simplified and efficient storage services to customers.
"Cloud computing is an inevitable trend in the storage industry, and therefore a key focus of Huawei’s. Huawei storage aims to provide a stable, efficient, and scalable 'unified storage cloud engine' solution," said Fan Ruiqi, the President of Huawei Storage Product Line. "OceanStor T series is based on the storage virtualization of data centers, offers diversified cloud engines for different types of data, and meets the requirement of storage resource sharing. The complex storage processing mechanisms are transparent to customers, which facilitates customers' storage system management."
