It is proud to mention that Orient Securities International Financial Group Limited takes the leading position in fintech, applying new technology that advances interaction efficiency.

Customer Requirements & Challenges

To better serve its roster of clients, Orient Securities International Financial Group sought the opportunity to upgrade its storage infrastructure. In order to support active-active service, it wanted a Disaster Recovery (DR) solution that could protect the mission critical system, and a multiple-purpose storage to serve VM Farm, File services, Backup and Archive systems.

In order to offer top-quality service without interruption, Orient Securities also planned a bigger storage capacity for backup and archive storage, and at the same time a solution that would use less space in the data center. It also wanted to reduce complicated cabling systems, delayed operations and high costs of ownership (TCO).


FusionCube for Cloud Infrastructure (HCI)

Huawei proposed to install FusionCube for Cloud HCI (Hyper-Converged Infrastructure), an IT platform complying with open architecture standards, converging compute and storage. It also pre-integrates distributed storage engines, virtualization and cloud management software, allowing for resource-on-demand provisioning and linear expansion.

FusionCube for Cloud also supports various hardware form factors, including blade, high-density, and rack, meeting the flexible configuration requirements of different services for compute, storage, and Input/Output (I/O) resources. The FusionCube for Cloud applies to cloud computing scenarios and is an ideal choice for deploying the IT infrastructure of cloud data centers.

This system offers an end-to-end solution from server, storage, hyper-converged infrastructure to data center facilities, which simplifies infrastructure delivery and accelerates service roll-up.

Offering high density and resilience, this infrastructure can support the diverse demands generated by business growth. It provides cost-effective remote replication solutions, thus protecting the customer’s important data. It also has the advantage of a single service focal point for all fundamental and mission critical infrastructure.

  • Reduction of more than 30% of its data center footprint by consolidating servers to high-density blade servers
  • Reduction of 50% of its cabling and maintenance service
  • Implementing the storage DR solution reduced the company’s Recovery Point Objective (RPO) to 3 seconds, enhancing the data protection level
  • Possibility to meet the increased demand from diverse applications and from unpredictable business growth
