Huawei - All-Flash Innovation

  1. 1. Huawei’s All-Flash Innovation Raul Pingarrón Executive Solutions Manager Enterprise Business Group, Iberia
  2. 2. 2 We are entering an Intelligent World All Things Sensing All Things Connected All Things Intelligent Sensing the physical world, mapping it to digital signals Data goes online to power machine intelligence Big data and AI power new applications ICT infrastructure will be the foundation of the intelligent world
  3. 3. 3 Ever-growing demands on Storage performance Cloud Big Data IoT AI IOPS / TB Unstructured & archive management DWH / BI VirtualizationOnline Transaction
  5. 5. 5 Key considerations for selecting All-Flash storage " A true all-flash storage system must be equipped with superb performance and enterprise-class data protection, helping users save costs." • Single set of functions as intelligent data management features, greatly reducing costs • Data reduction technologies such as deduplication and compression, saving space, power consumption, cooling, and maintenance costs • No change to IT architecture, smoothly connected to the live network • No change to use habits, compatible with apps/IT devices on the live network • Uninterrupted data migration. Users are unaware of the migration. Cost-effective design Easy maintenance • Latency < 1 ms, quickly responding to business requests • High performance, free of business bottlenecks in peak hours • Linear performance expansion, dealing with unexpected business growth • Flash protection technologies, such as wear leveling, ensuring SSD service life • Full redundancy architecture and RAID technology, ensuring high availability of the system • Advanced data protection features such as snapshots, replication, and active-active design, ensuring business continuity Ultimate performance High reliability
