Reviews from Gartner Peer Insights

We are deeply impressed by the customer-centric working attitude of Huawei engineers. The product itself is very responsive, easy to use for unstructured data, and highly scalable. More

-- Industry Architect

We needed a new type of storage to replace the traditional centralized storage. After a PoC test, we found that the reliability and scalability of Huawei distributed storage can be realized. The storage capacity can be expanded quickly and the management interface functions are complete. More

-- IT Technical Director in the Finance Industry

Huawei is experienced with distributed storage products. The storage is stable with different networks. And I do like the unified platform idea. More

        High-Performance Data Analytics

        With extensive applications in scientific research, oil and gas production, and genome sequencing, HPC has high requirements for computing and storage performance, scalability, and Return On Investment (ROI).
        The OceanStor Pacific Series provides distributed, parallel file clients with industry-leading performance for HPC platforms. These clients are compatible with Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX) and Message Passing Interface-Input/Output (MPI-IO), to better adapt to HPC services. The series also features automatic storage tiering, which optimizes architecture to increase both efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

        Typical uses: Marine meteorology, genome sequencing, energy exploration, remote sensing satellites, and autonomous driving.

        The Storage for Big Data

        By monetizing data through big data analytics, enterprises are encouraged to store data for longer periods of time, straining limited Information Technology (IT) resources as data volumes increase from PBs to EBs. As a result, cost optimization for distributed storage has become a critical issue.
        The OceanStor Pacific Series provides a decoupled storage-compute big data solution for the mainstream platforms of big data analytics. This solution expands compute and storage resources on demand without altering applications, slashing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by more than 30%.

        Typical uses: Finance, carrier log retention, governments, and Smart City projects.

        Huawei OceanStor Pacific: the Storage for Backup & Archive

        Object storage is gaining in popularity due to the increasing volume of Internet services, agile releases and cross-region access for distributed, cost-effective multi-temperature data storage, and growing backup and archiving requirements.
        The OceanStor Pacific Series constructs storage resource pools for mass volumes of objects to provide online services with large throughput in real-time, including frequent hot access to Internet data, as well as online audio and video data. The series also automatically implements long-term storage of cold data in Blu-ray media. This energy-efficient approach streamlines data access and reduces the storage costs of distributed.

        Typical uses: Bank check images and dual-recording (sound and picture recording), medical images, Internet of Vehicles (IoV), and enterprise resource sharing.
