Huawei debuts ‘smarter’ storage solution
Dubai, April 3, 2014
Huawei, a leading global ICT solutions provider, has revealed new plans to help organisations across the Middle East meet rising demands for a more secure and flexible data storage solution for mission-critical assets.
The new high-end storage suite - the OceanStor 18000 Storage System – offers governments and large size businesses advantages in storage performance, scalability, and cost.
Mehdi Ziane, senior IT solutions manager, Huawei UAE, said: “Huge amounts of data generated today have forced CIOs to rethink ways to invest that will enable their business a much faster time-to-market.”
“Not only do businesses want to stay ahead but they also understand that losing data, critical to their business, whether there be a natural disaster or a power outage, can potentially bring millions of dollars loss to a company.
“Through the use of high-end storage technology like OceanStor 18000, businesses have the reassurance of greater protection over securing their data, more guaranteed levels of availability at 99.99 per cent, with a powerful recovery time where downtime is just 50 seconds per year.”
Based on a virtualisation, hybrid cloud and even more simplified management architecture, OceanStor18000 delivers a performance that ensures a company’s network runs at its optimum and seamlessly.
“Current business demands will also inevitably change tomorrow which is why it is important to provide a solution that allows them greater levels of flexibility. Through scaling, down, back, in and out, ensuring your storage platform is scalable in multiple directions is instrumental in successfully managing data.”
Huawei’s new OceanStor 18000 Storage System has been especially for enterprise-level data centres and mission-critical business assets. Its highlights include a storage–dedicated operating system, Smart Matrix architecture, fully virtualised intelligent volumes, Smart series resource management software, and a Hyper series data protection software. - TradeArabia News Service
