Huawei FusionStorage, a software-defined distributed cloud storage product, provides both traditional applications and emerging cloud applications with storage services featuring large-scale scale-out capabilities, best-in-class efficiency, and on-demand service provisioning. FusionStorage helps enterprises build cloud infrastructure platforms and supports 30% more cloud applications than its peer products with the same hardware configurations.

"Huawei FusionStorage helps you eliminate data silos, optimize resource configuration, and simplify storage management regardless of whether the enterprise data center is experiencing storage consolidation or evolving toward private clouds or hybrid clouds." Hu Yuhai, Senior Director of Huawei European Marketing & Product Management Department, said, "The scale-out and on-demand service provisioning capabilities allow customers to purchase, deploy, and refresh hardware in batches within a flexible budget. FusionStorage storage resource provisioning efficiency in a cloud environment is 10 times faster compared with that in a traditional storage architecture. This cooperation is a new chapter in making digital transformation accessible to more and more people. Huawei will work with Intel to build a converged and efficient cloud infrastructure platform, helping enterprises achieve data-driven service innovation."

The cloud transformation of each industry is in full swing. The biggest challenge for enterprises is cloud-enabled storage. Markus Leberecht, Intel's senior cloud expert, gave a speech and showed how Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform enhances capability of storage systems, to improve performance of storage system, to strengthen storage expansion capability, to eliminate data transmission bottlenecks, at the same time, Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform as the foundation of Data Center Innovation, delivers 1.65x average performance boost over prior Generation.

Based on Intel's technical innovations, the latest-generation FusionStorage increases IOPS from 100,000 to 200,000 on a single node. With comprehensive product capabilities, Huawei is dedicated to providing full service capabilities for each type of enterprise applications. By constructing a data service platform oriented to cloud data centers, Huawei’s storage offerings help enterprises leverage storage resources on cloud and achieve data collaboration in on-premises and cloud-based scenarios. Since the first distributed storage product was launched in 2009, Huawei distributed storage has been widely adopted by more than 1000 industry clients worldwide. With the wide application of cloud computing in enterprise data centers, Huawei will further cooperation with industry partners, including Intel, to build a more comprehensive cloud storage ecosystem.

Huawei together with its partners and customers is showcasing new digital transformation solutions to orchestrate a digital symphony at CEBIT from June 11-15 in Germany, the home of classical music. It is also hosting activities and sharing best practices around Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN), all of which play a critical role in today’s digital transformation
