A Change Is Going to Come: D2D2T to F2F2X

With data cast as the oil of the digital world, the primary storage industry is transforming, turning away from disk media, moving toward solutions that are flash-based instead.

Yet, a significant amount of storage infrastructure — especially backup — remains rooted in the past, relying on Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape (D2D2T). That's a real problem, leading to unacceptably long backup windows and lengthy, unpredictable Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs).

But Huawei has a different vision for backup: a switch to Flash-to-Flash-to-Anything (F2F2X). And the change is already happening, with flash-based primary storage systems going mainstream, creating new data center scenarios and workloads.

Why Choose OceanProtect Backup Storage?

20% Higher Reduction Ratio

OceanProtect runs an advanced data reduction feature to allow you to work with more for less. Innovative technologies achieve a premium data reduction ratio of up to 72:1 — 20% better than the industry's next best — helping you save space even when working on a budget. In addition, the source and replication link deduplication features help slash network bandwidth costs.

Solid Resilience

Ransomware is a major threat to data security. The industry-leading Huawei ransomware protection solution with backup storage provides end-to-end data encryption (data leakage prevention), WORM and secure snapshot (data tampering prevention), and Air Gap (physical isolation) technologies, to ensure high security and availability of data copies. Unlike other storage vendors, Huawei prioritizes continuity of both enterprise and staff systems, which is why we released the industry‘s first active-active dual-controller architecture — ensuring uninterrupted backup services, even in the event of a controller failure.
