Huawei and Atempo Jointly Released Unstructured Data Movement Solution

A Reliable and Efficient Way to Move Massive Amounts of Unstructured Data

Oct 17, 2018

[Shanghai, China, October 17, 2018] At HUAWEI CONNECT 2018, Huawei and Atempo jointly released the high-performance and massively scalable Unstructured Data Movement Solution that supports Huawei’s full range of Network Attached Storage (NAS) and object storage products. Huawei and Atempo combine to leverage the expertise of two industry leaders to provide customers with flexible backup, archiving, and migration services for large NAS and unstructured data management.

The joint solution leverages Atempo’s flexible data movement architecture to deliver constant and adapted throughput to network and storage needs. When a customer requires greater levels of backup or migration performance, Atempo can simply add additional data movers to handle the increased capacity.

The flexible solution has the capability to source data from all scale-out NAS and move it to Huawei storage, NAS, or S3-based storage using the same data-mover system. At the filesystem level, Atempo Digital Archive (ADA) collects files, folders, and symbolic links from production storage to replicate them to the target platform with fully intact Access Control Lists (ACLs).

In different verticals — including research, industry, education, and healthcare — organizations are now generating and managing millions or billions of files of all sizes. Fueled by new business requirements such as the IoT, machine learning, and the rise of 5G, explosive data-growth rates are causing major disruptions for business infrastructures. Data is less static because Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine-learning applications require it to be readily available for analysis, either on-premises or in the cloud. As a result, data needs to be moved, protected, and available at all times.

Huawei and Atempo have launched numerous joint programs with strong business-driven characteristics to respond to rapidly-evolving market demands including:

  • Customers needing to protect large volumes of unstructured data that can no longer be fully backed up using legacy solutions
  • Companies needing to back up and archive large-file data sets to the new Huawei FusionStorage object storage system
  • Projects needing to migrate mission-critical file data sets to the Huawei file storage system
  • Workflows requiring data management on NAS, with cold data being automatically migrated to the new Huawei FusionStorage object system or to the public cloud for storage
“Customers of all industries and fields are now facing petabyte-scale data volumes, and they expect high performance and high reliability when moving these files between high-performance NAS and second-tier storage including object and cloud storage,” said Ferhat Kaddour, Atempo’s VP of Sales & Alliances. “Atempo’s collaboration with Huawei unlocks new levels of performance, reliability, and scalability for the migration, copy and protection of mission-critical data.”

“In this digital age, businesses are growing very quickly and they need data center infrastructure that delivers scalability and improves resilience,” said Liao Cheng, Director of Distributed Storage SPDT, Huawei IT Product Line. “Combining Atempo’s expertise in data protection and storage with Huawei’s experience in providing advanced NAS and object storage infrastructure, our converged solution helps businesses build a seamless architecture to compete in a fast-changing environment.” 

HUAWEI CONNECT 2018 – “Activate Intelligence” – is held at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center and Expo Center from October 10 to 12.
This year’s HUAWEI CONNECT conference is designed to help all businesses and organizations step over the threshold and stake their claim in the intelligent world.

You will be joined by the best minds in the industry – including global ICT leaders, industry experts, and ecosystem partners – to chart the way forward and explore new opportunities.
