Dusseldorf, Germany, Jan. 23 / PRNewswire /

On the HUAWEI ECO-CONNECT EUROPE 2021 – which takes place both online and on-site in Düsseldorf, Paris, Rome, Madrid and The Hague – Huawei introduced its next generation of data protection products: the OceanProtect X8000 and X9000 Backup Storage and the OceanProtect A8000 Appliance.

Huawei – named a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage for 2021 by Gartner, the world’s leading research and consulting firm – placed an emphasis on data protection in its keynote at the event. Sascha Oehl, sales manager for IT solutions at Huawei Germany, emphasized that a new infrastructure is necessary to meet the requirements of companies – no service interruption, no data loss and long-term information storage – as data usage increases to the exabyte level.

OceanProtect is designed as the core of this infrastructure: A comprehensive solution for disaster recovery, backup and archiving that covers every data scenario to a greater extent, more efficiently and more reliably than previous generations.

Huawei also used the event to present OceanStor Pacific, the distributed storage solution designed for mass data.

OceanProtect: Comprehensive protection for a wide variety of data

The data protection solution OceanProtect is suitable for many application scenarios during the entire data life cycle: Complete disaster recovery of current data, fast backup and recovery of less current data and archiving of older data.

The solution consists of two systems: OceanProtect X8000 and X9000 backup storage for centralized security systems, and OceanProtect A8000 Backup appliance for all-in-one backups that include software, servers and storage.

Huawei has recognized that companies need to back up more data in the same amount of time and has optimized the OceanProtect for efficient storage and high backup speeds. Using a distributed parallel architecture, a bandwidth of 155 TB per hour can be achieved – three times higher than the industry benchmark – with a data reduction ratio of up to 72: 1.

In addition, with its unified storage architecture, OceanProtect can store data in the same format for every use case, which enables faster cross-system copying and ultimately improves configuration efficiency by 50%.

This solution enables fast-expanding and data-dependent companies guaranteed service continuity, universal protection and immediate data access.

“We are observing a rapid development in primary storage – from mechanical hard disks to flash drives,” says Sascha Oehl. “However, the entire storage infrastructure, in particular the protection of data, does not meet the requirements that come with the rapid growth of the company. Security systems have to become faster.”

“The OceanProtect solution solves problems such as poor data protection efficiency, high operating costs and difficult data reuse. It ensures that there is no data loss and that the services are efficient.”

Unlock the real value of data

Huawei also introduced its high-density and high-performance storage system, OceanStor Pacific 9950. With high-density hardware and high-ratio EC, OceanStor Pacific can increase space utilization to 93% while reducing space requirements by 40% and operating costs by 30%.

Both OceanProtect and OceanStor Pacific are based on the principle of getting more value from data. The more data companies have, the more they want to get out of it by aggregating it into data lakes that can drive new innovation and generate returns for the company.

The key to this is a robust data platform that offers the necessary infrastructure for services around the clock, multiple data categories and fast and flexible access on a large scale. This is what the new generation of Huawei data protection products aims at: future-proof data protection, elimination of problems such as poor backup efficiency, high operating costs and easier use of data.
