The leading computing exhibition played host to a series of forums and workshops that highlighted key developments of cutting-edge technologies within the industry. At one of the workshops, Huawei introduced its award-winning storage and its various unique features, which help organizations seamlessly handle industry upgrades and unlock data potential. The product excelled in multiple rounds of testing among selected vendors before being awarded the Grand Prize.

On winning the award, Dr. Peter Zhou, President of Huawei IT Product Line remarked, "We are very pleased that our storage product has once again won Interop Tokyo's Best of Show Award. It is no secret that HPC is evolving towards data-intensive computing, which means larger data volumes, higher reliability needs, and varying workloads. Therefore, our customers in the HPC industry need professional storage systems to better cope with these challenges. With extensive technical know-how and industry practices, we have launched OceanStor Pacific series, the next-generation storage for HPDA. It has been vastly used in scientific research institutions, universities, and enterprises in Asia Pacific and Europe, helping them remove HPC bottlenecks while also accelerating the evolution from traditional HPC to HPDA."

Among the technologies that helped the product win the award was the industry's first lossless protocol interworking technology. Allowing users to access the same file over multiple protocols, such as POSIX/MPI/NFS/CIFS/HDFS/S3, this ensures zero data copy throughout the entire service process, as well as higher process and storage efficiency.

Huawei OceanStor Pacific series also supports multiple types of workloads; one storage system can process data from end to end by offering high bandwidth for large files and high IOPS for small files. To help customers reduce the storage TCO, the series adopting the industry-leading high-density design consists of high-density performance and high-density capacity models, which provide high bandwidth of 32 GB/s per U and large capacity of 24 disks per U, respectively.

Interop Tokyo is a prestigious network computing industry event and the largest and most influential ICT exhibition in Japan. Its panel of experts recognized Huawei OceanStor Pacific storage for its unique technical advantages.
