Huawei Unveils OceanStor Flash Memory Strategy, Stepping Into the Era of All-Flash Storage

Showcasing the Latest Flash Storage Solutions For the First Time in Singapore

Singapore, October 28, 2015 – Huawei today announced its OceanStor flash memory strategy, which will widen the adoption of flash memory in data centers, ushering customers into the era of reliable and high performance all-flash data centers. The company is introducing its latest products and solutions at Cloud Expo Asia 2015, held at Suntec Convention Centre, Singapore from 28 October to 29 October 2015.


As part of this strategy, Huawei signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Micron at the Huawei Cloud Congress 2015. The collaboration will see Huawei providing industry-leading flash storage solutions for high-density and Big Data storage systems while continuing to explore best practices in flash technologies. Additionally, Huawei will work with other partners within the industry chain to innovate flash controllers, media chips, and enterprise storage systems.


“The era of Big Data demands storage solutions are reliable, efficient and sustainable. Flash memory is key to delivering superior user experience while consuming less power, it is an indispensable tool to meet the business needs of our customers as we move towards the future,” said Zheng Yelai, President of Huawei IT Product Line. “Huawei is an established storage provider that researches and develops flash controllers and core algorithms to provide a complete lineup of converged storage product solutions for enterprises to help them meet business demands. The cooperation with Micron in the flash memory area is another shining example of Huawei's long-term commitment to build up a sustainable ecosystem for partners within the industry chain to jointly developing industry-specific product solutions.”


With a similar price point to 15K rpm Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) disks, Solid-State Drive (SSD) disks bring more benefits for customers with the same budget and improve critical service performance by five times, while effectively mitigating environmental impacts on disks. Huawei has been integrating SSDs into its storage offerings at the start of September 2015 to better serve its customers worldwide.


Huawei leverages a future-proof software architecture that allows the company to quickly research and develop storage products in line with emerging data application trends. This gives Huawei customers the ability to react swiftly to changing business needs. The innovations powering Huawei products are built through partnerships that leverage knowledge and best practices of multiple industry partners to continually innovate, helping meet the long term commitments of both partners and customers.


Huawei’s strategy underscores the importance of collaborative partnerships – only through understanding customers’ workloads and how they use technology – can enterprise solution providers achieve success in helping their customers address challenges to meet business objectives.
