Data Management Engine

Huawei's Data Management Engine (DME) is an intelligent storage management platform designed for a wide range of applications, offering convergence, intelligence, and openness. Simply stated, it simplifies storage management and Operations and Maintenance (O&M), improves the operation efficiency of data centers, and automates storage throughout its entire lifecycle.

Converged functions: Users simply need to log in to a software interface to complete resource provisioning, intelligent O&M, and data protection, simplifying multi-device storage management.
Converged devices: Unified management of storage networks — from hosts to switches to storage devices — enables End to End (E2E) automatic resource provisioning, topology generation, and associated performance analytics, improving management efficiency. DME also supports mainstream storage devices from multiple vendors.

Deployment Automation


Intelligent provisioning: Provides Service Level Agreement (SLA)-based, customized, pending, and Ansible-based flexible service provisioning modes for all scenarios, and supports device-based or application-based resource provisioning.
Intelligent O&M: Intelligently predicts risks from multiple dimensions, from storage performance and capacity to disk faults, with an accuracy of over 90%. In addition, 70% of performance and capacity issues can be automatically resolved.

Smart Brain


Open APIs: Provides more than 100 combined Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), such as O&M, service catalog, and data lifecycle management, and provides service-oriented capabilities to third-party platforms through APIs.
Standard protocols: Ensures 100% compliance with Representational State Transfer (RESTful) API specifications. In addition, the platform is easy to learn and boasts extensive compatibility with a range of storage vendors.

  • DME connects to mainstream cloud management platforms and Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) through open APIs, scripts, and plug-ins, enabling the smooth integration into the existing environments and service processes of customers.

  • Users simply need to log in to a software interface to complete resource provisioning, intelligent O&M, and data protection for data services, simplifying multi-device storage management.

  • DME centrally manages Huawei storage, third-party storage, switches, and hosts, all through a unified management interface and open southbound APIs.
