Customer Requirements & Challenges
Expand 3 DCs’ Storage Capacity, Efficiency and Reliability
To cope with its increasing customer base, ESDS’ goal was to expand its storage capacity across
its 3 Data Centers located in Nashik, Mumbai and Bangalore.
It faced four main challenges to achieve its objective:
Insufficient capacity and low IOPS performance1, resulting in high Operating
Expenses (OPEX) per GB/TB
Low Reliability and absence of an integrated and efficient Disaster Recovery (DR)
High Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), due to increasing expenses for the existing storage
infrastructure, leading to a competitiveness decline
Low Efficiency, due to ineffective de-duplication and compression
OceanStor 5500F V5 with Cascaded 3DC DR
Huawei provided a two-fold solution:
1) Twelve controllers of Huawei OceanStor 5500F V5 were installed across the 3 ESDS
data centers, with 500 TB of All-Flash usable capacity. Covered by a 5-year warranty,
the system provides the company with 1ms-level latency and PB-level capacity.
This equipment delivers high performance, low latency and high scalability. It incorporates
all high availability (HA) features, enabling functionality, efficiency, reliability and
ease of use.
2) Huawei’s Cascaded 3DC DR solution, including gateway-free SAN+NAS2, ensures
data integrity and availability if a disaster occurs, with real-time data replication and
continuous service support across the 3 data centers.
Better Service. Excellent performance and PB-level capacity based on All-Flash result
in better services to ESDS’ customers, which in turn attracts more customers.
Lower TCO. Huawei 3DC solution helped ESDS cut its TCO by 30%, significantly improving
Higher Efficiency. Effective de-duplication and compression help ESDS save rack
space and energy consumption. Storage resource allocation and utilization are more
1 IOPS: Input/Output Operations Per Second
2 SAN is a dedicated network of storage devices, including tape drives storages, raid disk arrays, etc.), all working together to provide an
excellent block level storage. NAS is a single device/server/computing appliance, sharing its own storage over the network
