BANGKOK, September 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — AT HUAWEI CONNECT 2022, David Wangexecutive director of Huawei’s board of directors and chairman of the ICT infrastructure board of directors, published a series of white papers titled On the way to the intelligent world.
Digitization is just the beginning when considering global progress. It is expected that over the next decade, businesses of all sizes will experience complications along their digital transformation (DX) journey. Computer data applications will become more diverse and increasing volumes of application data will be processed by production systems, meaning the need for reliable, high-performance, and cost-effective data storage is greater than ever.
For this reason, the On the way to the intelligent world – Data storage white paper presents Huawei’s outlook for the evolution of storage in enterprise data centers. Covering 9 topics, it provides enterprise customers with recommendations on developing data infrastructure to jointly foster the data storage industry.
Outlook I: Unstructured Data
Unstructured data accounts for over 80% of new business data and is increasingly important for production and decision making. There is a need for enterprise IT teams to transform their structured data-centric capabilities to design, plan, and manage unstructured big data.
Outlook II: various data applications
Various data applications such as distributed databases, big data analytics, and AI are booming. Enterprises are encouraged to use the decoupled storage and compute architecture to serve emerging data applications for greater reliability. Additionally, acceleration engines can be created for various data applications to implement near-data processing that provides greater efficiency.
Outlook III: All-Flash inclusive for all scenarios
All-flash storage accounts for more than 50% of the primary storage market, and the era of inclusive flash storage is approaching. Huawei recommends that enterprises seize storage replacement and deployment opportunities to accelerate the adoption of all-flash storage.
Outlook IV: protection against ransomware
Ransomware attacks are becoming the biggest threat to businesses. Their storage teams are advised to establish a more comprehensive data protection system and create a comprehensive ransomware protection storage solution to strengthen the last line of defense for data protection.
Outlook V: Digital Resilience
As data becomes the core business asset, digital resilience is a major metric for any enterprise resilience framework. Businesses need to strengthen data protection to ensure no data leakage, tampering, and loss, always-on services, and always-compliant access, thereby improving digital resilience.
Outlook VI: AI-Powered Storage
From management to products, AI powers autonomous storage throughout the data lifecycle. It is recommended that enterprises proactively develop benchmarks for storage AI management software, and that storage management teams upgrade technology stacks for storage AI.
Outlook VII: multi-cloud architecture
As multicloud becomes the new norm, the best practice is to migrate innovative services that come with uncertainties and emerging services such as OA to public clouds, while keeping core services in their on-premises data centers . In the multi-cloud construction, enterprises are advised to use the IT architecture that centrally stores and shares data and deploys the applications in multiple clouds, and plan a unified data management platform across the clouds to maximize data sharing.
Outlook VIII: Storage Business Models
A flexible storage business model helps manage explosive data volumes and economic uncertainties. Huawei recommends enterprises plan how to obtain IT resources and select the most appropriate business model based on business needs and future strategies.
Outlook IX: Energy saving
Green data storage is essential 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.
