Bank Disaster Recovery Network Guards Services

29/05/2012 10:10:00

Background

The People’s Bank of China (PBC) is responsible for China’s macroeconomic management. Since PBC controls monetary policy and regulates financial institutions, large quantities of data must be managed and stored. PBC also needed a disaster recovery network with a larger capacity and better security.

Challenges

PBC’s disaster recovery system required these features:

  • Data Protection Security: Lost data could lead to catastrophic monetary losses. PBC’s disaster recovery network needed cutting-edge technology to ensure its data security
  • Capacity: Bandwidth for each storage service was previously 1G or 2G, but needed to increase to 4G or 10G for capacity equal to its data center
  • Scalability: SANs need to expand each year for accommodating annual increases in financial storage services
  • Efficiency: Transactions must post to accounts in real-time

Solution

Huawei’s OptiX OSN 6800 optical switch nodes provide complete Optical Transport Network (OTN) functions.

High security, layered protection

Huawei’s system now uses diversified line-level protection for complete security coverage. It uses leased fiber optic cables from different operators for operations and protection routes within a protection group to minimize line faults.

At the service layer, Huawei-patented optical path protection, where processing and protection boards are located in different subracks, ensures service security.

At the equipment layer, 1+1 backups protect the critical boards.

The network now supports all currently available ports and is compatible with equipment from all major SAN suppliers. The system can generate a capability test report showing equipment interconnection capabilities.

Benefits

PBC has successfully enhanced their data center’s disaster recovery capabilities and can smoothly expand its services with their new solution.

Seamless interconnection

The OptiX OSN 6800 is certified to work with most SAN equipment for a seamless, secure, and scalable network.

Cutting-edge technologies for higher capacity

Huawei uses OptiX OSN 6800 optical switch nodes to provide high capacity and network scalability. Huawei’s cutting-edge OTN equipment is the only open digital transport system in the industry. It complies with international standards and supports:

  • High-capacity and multiple-service transmission
  • IP and storage access delivery
  • Scheduling and protection
