This award is a testament to Huawei's ongoing efforts in the innovation of enterprise storage technologies and products, which is also a technology domain that has recorded significant growth rate in sales.
"The high-end storage market has been blooming in recent years, where market demands are focused on data protection and disaster recovery," said Mr. Fox Hu, Director of TMT Industry, Frost & Sullivan. "Key industry vendors have been devoted to the development of more reliable high-end storage solutions with more innovative technologies, and Huawei has been one of the key industry vendors who have been making remarkable achievements in this field."
"We are delighted that our ongoing efforts in technology research and innovation are recognized by Frost & Sullivan and the industry," said Mr. Fan Ruiqi, President of Huawei's IT Storage Product Line. "Since the launch of OceanStor 18000 enterprise storage system in September 2012, as of the beginning of December, 121 sets of OceanStor 18000 have already been purchased by customers in the China market alone. With Industry and customer recognition, we are committed to the ongoing innovation of customer-centric enterprise technologies and product improvements, enabling customers to construct reliable and efficient storage platforms."
As the first high-end storage system designed and manufactured in China, the Huawei OceanStor 18000 series enterprise storage system has been known for its security, reliability, flexibility and efficiency. Featuring high speed and large capacity cache, the OceanStor 18000 series is scalable to up to 16 controllers and has a large internal bandwidth to ensure overall reliability and performance. A number of Huawei-developed technologies are also adopted, including the Smart Matrix Architecture and RAID2.0+ technology, which have been widely recognized in the industry and among customers.
The Huawei Smart Matrix Architecture is an intelligent virtualized system architecture for enterprise storage systems. It provides high flexibility and can significantly improve speed of data exchange, ensuring high reliability and improving storage performance at the same time.
Developed by Huawei, RAID2.0+ ensures two-layer virtualization in the storage system. The base layer is developed into a fully virtualized resource pool, which helps to accelerate data recovery by 20 times and lowers disk failure rate. With fine-grained data management and the Smart series software, the upper layer improves resource utilization by 3 times.
With the combination of Smart Matrix Architecture, RAID2.0+ technology and other technologies, OceanStor 18000 Series is able to achieve higher security and reliability, ensuring greater flexibility and efficiency.
