As digital transformation deepens, Huawei believes that data storage is facing major changes and significant opportunities. Enterprise demands are shifting, requiring data storage solutions to prioritize capacity, performance, and data resilience. Addressing these evolving needs, Huawei Data Storage provides a range of innovative products and solutions.
Evolving Data Storage Landscape
With 56% of enterprises deploying AI applications and 96% planning to build cloud-native applications, the collaboration model between data storage and data applications is being reconstructed. Cloud-native applications are becoming prevalent in enterprise data centers, requiring reliable, high-performance container storage to meet the increasing demands of big data and AI applications.
Addressing Unstructured Data Growth
The growth of unstructured data is exponential, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 38%. To accommodate this rapid expansion, innovations in software, hardware, and algorithms are critical for scale-out storage. Intelligent data fabric is needed to provide a global data view and unified data scheduling across systems, regions, and clouds, all while ensuring cost-effective storage of mass unstructured data.
Ensuring Data Resilience and Security
As data resilience threats evolve from natural disasters and physical damages to human-factor disasters like ransomware, shifting from reactive response to proactive defense is essential. Data storage is becoming the last line of defense for data resilience, with more features being integrated into data storage products, including ransomware detection, data encryption, secure snapshots, and data recovery in Air Gap environments.
In conclusion, Huawei’s data storage innovations, such as OceanStor Dorado All-Flash Storage and OceanStor Pacific Scale-Out Storage, continue to address enterprises’ evolving data storage needs. By fostering novel data paradigms, intelligent data fabric, and intrinsic data resilience, Huawei’s solutions aim to unlock the full potential of mass data and empower the rapid development of the data storage industry.
