Huawei has organized its 14th Global Analyst Summit in Shenzhen recently. Analysts, opinion leaders, representatives of media outlets, and a variety of guests from all over the world have gathered in this event to discuss the latest opportunities and challenges brought by cloud computing.


Robert Simmons, Huawei's Storage Product Management Dept. Director, presented the keynote speech during the Cloud and IT Infrastructure session, elaborating on the solutions and products that center around Huawei's "Data on Demand" strategy. He has also announced that Huawei's Storage as a Service (STaaS) solution, launched in March 2017, will be able to run in a hybrid cloud environment to ensure a consistent experience both on- and off-premises.


The STaaS solution manages SAN, NAS, object, and other storage equipment in a single pane. It aims to consolidate storage systems into resource pools and help enterprises manage data and implement O&M intelligently.


Huawei has rolled out six storage services to satisfy its customers' demanding data service requirements: Elastic Volume Service, Volume Backup Service, Object Storage Service, Scalable File Service, Data Express Service, Data Transfer Accelerate.


The rapid evolution of cloud computing technologies and emergence of new applications call for increasingly higher system performance and lower latency. Flash storage is the natural choice for breaking through performance bottlenecks and accelerating mission-critical applications. Huawei's latest all-flash array, the OceanStor Dorado V3, is a crucial part of its STaaS solution. The array lineup keeps response times down to 500μs with the highest levels of performance and 99.9999% reliability to address enterprise storage needs of the digital era.
