BANGKOK, September 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — At HUAWEI CONNECT 2022, David WangExecutive Director of the Huawei Board of Directors and Chairman of the ICT Infrastructure Board of Directors, published a series of white papers titled Moving towards the smart world.
Digitization is just the beginning if we look at global progress. Over the next decade, businesses of all sizes are expected to experience complications during their digital transformation (DX) journey. IT data applications will become more diversified, and production systems will process ever-increasing volumes of application data, meaning the need for reliable, efficient, and cost-effective data storage is more important than ever.
For this reason, the white paper Striding Towards the Intelligent World – Data Storage presents Huawei’s perspectives for the evolution of storage in enterprise data centers. Covering 9 topics, it provides enterprise customers with recommendations on data infrastructure development to jointly advance the data storage industry.
Perspective I: Unstructured Data
Unstructured data represents more than 80% of new business data and is increasingly important for production and decision making. Enterprise IT teams need to transform their structured data-centric capabilities to design, plan, and manage big unstructured data.
Perspective II: Diverse Data Applications
Diverse data applications such as distributed databases, big data analytics, and AI are on the rise. Enterprises are encouraged to use compute and storage decoupled architecture to serve emerging data applications and achieve greater reliability. In addition, acceleration engines can be built for the various data applications to implement close-to-data processing that offers greater efficiency.
Perspective III: All-Flash included in all scenarios
All-flash storage accounts for more than 50% of the primary storage market, and the era of inclusive flash storage is coming. Huawei recommends that enterprises take advantage of storage replacement and deployment opportunities to accelerate the adoption of all-flash storage.
Insight IV: Ransomware Protection
Ransomware attacks are becoming the most important threat to businesses. Your storage teams are advised to establish a more comprehensive data protection system and build a comprehensive ransomware protection storage solution to strengthen the last line of defense for data protection.
Perspective V: Digital Resilience
With data becoming the primary asset for businesses, digital resilience is an important metric for any business resilience framework. Businesses need to strengthen data protection to ensure no data leaks, tampering, or loss, services are always on, and access is always compliant, thereby improving digital resilience.
Insight VI: AI Driven Storage
From management to products, AI drives autonomous storage throughout the data lifecycle. It is recommended that enterprises proactively develop evaluation criteria for storage AI management software, and that storage management teams update storage AI technology stacks.
Perspective VII: Multi-Cloud Architecture
As multicloud becomes the new normal, best practice is to migrate innovative services that have uncertainties and emerging services like OA to public clouds, while keeping core services in their on-premises data centers. In multi-cloud construction, enterprises are advised to use IT architecture that centrally stores and shares data and deploys applications across multiple clouds, and plan for a unified data management platform across all clouds to maximize the data exchange.
Insight VIII: Storage Business Models
A flexible storage business model helps manage explosive data volumes and economic uncertainties. Huawei recommends that companies plan how to obtain IT resources and select the most suitable business model based on business requirements and future strategies.
Perspective IX: Energy Saving
Green data storage is a must for data centers to achieve net zero carbon emissions. Enterprises can deploy storage products with high-density designs, system convergence, and efficient data reduction to further reduce data center power consumption.
