Realize the Importance of Unstructured Data

Unstructured financial data now derives from a diverse range of sources, from channel access and front-end systems, to e-commerce platforms and paperless transactions. Processed and stored by content platforms — for auditing, risk control, and operational analysis — its full value continues to be explored through technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and big data. But this much has become abundantly clear: effective management, backup, and archiving of unstructured financial data should be a key concern for every enterprise.

New Storage Challenges
With advancing financial digitalization, traditional scale-up array storage falls well short, handling growing volumes of mass data. And long-term retention of data, in order to comply with regulations, can lead to a substantial increase in the Information Technology (IT) budget.

Data Silos from Production to Backup and Archiving
In traditional financial systems, different applications, access protocols, and storage devices create data silos, making data flow difficult. The read/write performance models of different applications in the front-end input, risk management, and decision analysis systems interfere with each other, negatively impacting the user experience.

Unstructured Data Matters in Production Decision-Making
With unstructured data, such as videos and images, gaining importance in the analysis of key services, storage must be able to meet new, higher levels of security, reliability, and speed.

Application Reconstruction Is Complex as Architecture Evolves
Traditional Network–Attached Storage (NAS)-based storage systems are unable to meet the demands of financial services running on multiple terminals and across multiple platforms, from mobile phones and Point Of Sale (POS) machines, to Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) and Video Teller Machines (VTMs). Here, NAS systems are unable to offer interactive online data access, sharing, and management across multiple data centers.

Object Storage: Revolutionizing Mass Financial Data Storage

End-to-end Networking

Easy Access

Object storage uses Representational State Transfer (RESTful) interfaces for read and write, eliminating network security risks from complex NAS protocols and interactions. This makes it a great fit for public network transmission. In addition, S3 is supported by multiple types of terminal devices.

Faster Read

Unlike traditional file storage, which organizes data into different folders in a tree structure, object storage directly accesses files through Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), just like picking items directly out of a filing cabinet drawer. In tests, object storage has shown a read speed of 10 ms in a system containing hundreds of billions of files, while file storage has reached the second level.

Flexible Layout

High Security

With deepening enterprise cloudification, a physical storage device must be provided for multiple enterprises, departments, or individual users in a data center. Objects are designed based on tenants to effectively share storage resources, simplify configuration and management, and improve data security.

Choose Huawei Object Storage

Huawei OceanStor Pacific scale-out object storage provides comprehensive data infrastructure services — from production to backup and archiving — for unstructured data like the mass video and image data involved in finance. It features multi-load support, lossless multi-protocol interworking, cross-site multi-active mode, deduplication and compression, tiering/replication-to-cloud, Write Once Read Many (WORM), and anti-ransomware capabilities.

Simplified Financial Data Management

• Support retrievals of up to 100 billion objects in a single bucket in seconds with stable performance.

• Achieve up to 84% space utilization thanks to intra-site and cross-site Erasure Coding (EC). The tiering/replication-to-cloud feature maximizes investment protection.

• Intelligent data tiering uses Solid-State Drive (SSD), Hard Disk Drive (HDD), and Blu-ray/cloud storage for image retrieval management and archiving.

Enhanced Financial Data Resilience

• Benefit from the industry's only multi-active Disaster Recovery (DR) solution for 2–12 sites at the bucket level, tolerating the simultaneous failure of up to two sites.

• Enhance security with WORM, enterprise-level misdeletion prevention, encryption, antivirus, and ransomware protection features.

• Tolerate up to four node failures at a site, with node failover times less than 10s.
