Huawei introduced the OceanProtect Data Protection Solution at Huawei Connect 2021, which covers both Disaster Recovery (DR) and backup fields to provide comprehensive protection for various types of data throughout the lifecycle. It is the responsibility of the Huawei All-Flash Data Center Solution to create fast, green, reliable, and intelligent infrastructure for a variety of industries. The solution is based on the concept of "full DR of hot data and quick backup and restore of warm data," ensuring zero service interruption, zero data loss, and long-term data retention.
During Huawei Connect 2021, Huawei kicked-off one session with the theme of All-Flash Data Center Builds a Green, Reliable, Intelligent Data "Highway" with a speech from one of the speakers, Mr. Michael Fan, the Director of Data Storage Solution Sales Dept. of Huawei Enterprise BG. Michael introduced the wide-range of protection levels that are covered by the OceanProtect solution, saying that "In terms of disaster recovery scenarios, it provides various features, such as gateway-free active-active or 3DC solutions, one-click DR drills, and failover (within seconds). While for backup scenarios, the OceanProtect X series provides fast backup and recovery and efficient space reduction."
First and foremost, the solution is intended to provide complete disaster recovery (DR) of hot data. This means that it integrates disaster recovery for SAN and NAS and offers worry-free device upgrades to maximise return on investment (ROI). The solution can also adopt the Huawei active-active DR design in a flexible manner to reduce customers' initial investment while meeting their evolving DR requirements. This design also ensures that the upgrade from a single system to an active-active or active-passive dual-system deployment, and then to a three-data-center (3DC) or even a multi-DC four-copy solution, is non-disruptive. This enables equipment to be upgraded online as needed. Customers can easily increase the DR protection level to achieve better, effectively protection for production data.
Furthermore, the solution achieves quick backup and restoration of warm data — specifically, fast backup, quick reuse, and efficient storage. This feat uses OceanProtect A8000 Appliance and OceanProtect X8000/X9000 Backup Storage, which provide industry-leading backup and recovery bandwidths. These products implement full, accelerated backup and recovery for warm or hot data, enabling backup data to flow like production data.
The Huawei OceanProtect Data Protection improves the overall data protection level throughout the lifecycle. It helps enterprises effectively protect their data using fast backup and recovery bandwidths while enabling better utilisation of backup space. With an extensive portfolio of OceanProtect Data Protection, Huawei is committed to developing more powerful technologies, products, and solutions that prioritise and protect data in various scenarios in the intelligent world.
