FusionStorage is Huawei’s latest and greatest intelligent distributed storage product. It provides elastic on-demand services powered by cloud infrastructure and meets enterprise-grade key-workload requirements.
FusionStorage provides block, object, big data, and file storage for upper-layer applications, as required, and can be easily scaled-out to support the business of today and harness that of tomorrow. It delivers ultimate performance and comprehensive enterprise-grade features and works with Huawei 64-bit ARMv8 Kunpeng series processors to increase IOPS and reduce power consumption under the same hardware configuration.
FusionStorage helps enterprises build a brand-new, reliable, efficient, and intelligent storage service platform to enable large-scale agile data access in an intelligent world.
1 ms Latency
Accelerated by NVMe SSDs and AI Fabric, FusionStorage delivers a proven performance of 4.5 million IOPS at a latency of less than 1 ms in SPC-1 V3, meeting the application performance requirements of millions of VMs. Dynamic deduplication and compression ensure high data reduction ratios and provide stable storage performance, achieving both high availability and superior efficiency.
Elastic erasure coding ensures system reliability is not compromised upon simultaneous failure of up to four nodes or four cabinets. Cross-cluster, gateway-free distributed active-active protection provides six-nines solution-level availability to move core enterprise services to the cloud. Multi-level reliability technologies for components, nodes, cabinets, and data centers enable services to be deployed on demand.
The intelligent data service and system O&M platform provides full-lifecycle intelligent system management, from resource planning, provisioning, and system optimization, to risk prediction and fault location.
FusionStorage provides an ultra-high quantity of data storage resource pools featuring on-demand resource provisioning and elastic capacity expansion in virtualization and cloud environments. It improves storage deployment, expansion, and O&M efficiency using general-purpose servers. Typical scenarios include internet-finance channel access clouds, development and testing clouds, cloud-based services, B2B cloud resource pools in carriers’ BOM domains, e-Government cloud, and Safe City cloud.
FusionStorage delivers enterprise-grade capabilities, such as distributed active-active and stable low latency, to ensure efficient and stable operations of mission-critical databases (OLAP/OLTP).
FusionStorage provides industry-leading decoupled compute and storage solutions for big data, which integrates traditional data silos and builds a unified big data resource pool for enterprises. It also leverages enterprise-grade capabilities, such as elastic EC, I/O aggregation, and cross-region deployment to improve big data service efficiency and reduce TCO.
Typical scenarios include big data analytics for finance, carrier (log retention), government, and Safe City.
More FusionStorage Solutions
FusionStorage provides enterprise-class object storage resource pools with high performance and reliability to meet requirements of real-time, online, and frequently accessed services like Internet data, online audio and video, and enterprise web disks for long-term storage and online access.
Typical scenarios include production storage, backup, or archiving for financial check images, dual recording (audio/video), health care images, electronic documents for governments and enterprises, and Internet of Vehicles (IoV).
FusionStorage hosted development, testing, internet channels, and big data and AI services, speed up resource provisioning by 10 times and reduce TCO by 40 percent.
China Mobile (Liaoning) leverages FusionStorage to replace legacy high-end storage devices for critical services, shortening the report analytics time by 80 percent and facilitating real-time operational decision-making.
FusionStorage constructed PB-level distributed storage resource pools for BOM critical services of China Telecom (Zhejiang). Rapid deployment and simple O&M allow fast Time-To-Market (TTM) for new services, and flexible scale-out and linear increase of performance and capacity accelerate cloud service expansion at scale.
