BERLIN, May 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Huawei Innovative Data Infrastructure Forum 2024 in Berlin, Dr. Peter Zhou, Vice President of Huawei and President of Huawei Data Storage Product Line, presented the latest insights from Huawei in his talk "Redefining Data Storage in the Age of Data Awakening."

AI seeks to disrupt traditional data storage, focusing not only on performance, reliability and data paradigm, but also on scalability, sustainability and data fabric, Zhou said. In the era of data awakening, he added, Huawei will redefine data storage through leading innovation in these six dimensions:

These six dimensions guide the philosophy behind the recent launch of the high-performance OceanStor A800, which is a powerful addition to Huawei OceanStor A-series storage models. Tailored for AI applications, OceanStor A800 can increase AI cluster utilization by 30%, and in terms of performance, it offers high bandwidth and IOPS, which are four to eight times better than its peer vendor. . In terms of scalability, OceanStor A800 supports scaling up to EB-level capacity with up to 512 controllers, as well as scaling up to a maximum of 4,096 compute cards. In terms of space and energy conservation, it achieves an extraordinary storage density of 1 PB/U and energy efficiency of 0.7 Watts/TB. It also provides a new data paradigm with vector index, tensor data and RAG. In terms of data resilience, the accuracy of ransomware detection has improved from 99.9% to 99.99%. Additionally, data fabric capability makes it easier to manage data assets.

At the same time, innovations in storage media are driving sustainable development. Huawei's new high-capacity SSDs offer 10 times more capacity with the same disk size, which can further reduce the power consumption of a data center. With a capacity of 128 TB per drive, the new SSDs consume 88% less storage space and 92% less energy than SSDs from other manufacturers when storing one PB of data.

To be AI ready, companies must be data ready. The Omni-Dataverse global file system built into the DME makes enterprise data assets visible, manageable, and mobile across regions, building a strong AI data lake storage foundation for enterprises.

Dr. Peter Zhou concluded by emphasizing Huawei's commitment to redefining data storage that focuses on customer challenges and demands in the era of data awakening, and building a leading data infrastructure ready for AI for greater customer value.
