MUNICH, May 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Innovative Data Infrastructure Forum (IDI Forum) 2023, revolving around the theme "New Applications ∙ New Data ∙ New Resilience", took place on May 23 in Munich, Germany. The forum brings together global industry experts and partners to explore the future of digital infrastructure towards the era of the yottabyte (one yottabyte equals one quadrillion gigabytes). At the forum, Huawei delved into a number of different topics, such as embracing the emerging application ecosystem, efficiently handling large amounts of unstructured data, and comprehensively improving data resilience, to unlock the value of data. towards the evolution of the data storage industry.

Huawei believes that data storage faces great changes and great opportunities as digital transformation deepens:

First, 56% of companies deploy AI applications, while 96% of companies plan to build cloud-native applications to cope with ever-changing data applications.

So the data is growing exponentially. 80% of new data is unstructured data with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 38%.

Last but not least, data resilience faces serious challenges. Ransomware is constantly evolving and the number of ransomware attacks is growing at an annual rate of 98%. Worryingly, more than 14% of companies are unable to restore their data after a ransomware attack.

Emerging big data and artificial intelligence applications place higher requirements on the parallel processing of diversified data. The collaboration model between data warehouses and data applications is being rebuilt to embrace new data paradigms. Cloud-native applications are becoming more prevalent in enterprise data centers. To meet these challenges, reliable, high-performance container storage will be required.

As unstructured data used for production and decision-making systems becomes increasingly popular due to real-time access, there is a need to significantly improve read/write bandwidth and I/O access efficiency. S of scalable storage. To meet the need for cost-effective storage of unstructured big data, innovations in software, hardware, and algorithms are crucial for scalable storage. Additionally, with the explosion in data volume comes serious data gravity challenges. Therefore, an intelligent data structure is required to implement a global data view and unified data schedule across systems, regions, and clouds.

Data resiliency threats are evolving from natural disasters and physical damage to human-induced disasters such as ransomware. Therefore, shifting from a reactive response to a proactive defense is critical to ensure greater data resiliency. The rise of zero-day vulnerabilities and the huge losses caused by unrecoverable data reveal the inadequacy of the current enterprise data resiliency system. Such a system consists of networks, applications, and hosts, and is no longer adequate to meet the latest data resiliency requirements of enterprises. Data storage is becoming the last line of defense for data resiliency, with more resiliency features built into data storage products, including ransomware detection, data encryption, secure snapshots, and recovery. data at Air Gap.

Dr. Zhou commented in his speech that Huawei Data Storage offers a wide range of products and solutions to meet the changing requirements of our customers and partners. OceanStor Dorado All-Flash Storage and OceanStor Pacific Scale-Out Storage were recognized as Customers' Choice 2023 in Gartner Peer Peer InsightsTM.

To see the big picture of the data storage industry, the total shipment of the world's top five external controller-based storage (ECB) vendors in 2022 was 3 times higher than in 2012. However, this figure is far behind. below what is required to meet global demands in the age of the yottabyte. Huawei predicts that this number will increase tenfold by 2032, surpassing 100 exabytes. Data warehousing solutions must not only prioritize capacity and performance, but also foster new data paradigms, intelligent data fabric, and intrinsic data resiliency, to unlock the full potential of Big Data and power rapid development of the data storage industry.
