A look at the re­cent de­vel­op­ments at Huawei

Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

To­day dis­trib­uted and soft­ware­de­fined cloud data cen­ter is the de­vel­op­ment trend. It helps busi­ness users across ge­ogra­phies to uti­lize parts of bulk re­sources ef­fec­tively and help ac­quire quickly and eas­ily. The abil­ity for an end user to sign up and re­ceive ser­vices with­out the long de­lays that have char­ac­ter­ized tra­di­tional IT. Abil­ity to ac­cess the ser­vice via stan­dard plat­forms (desk­top, lap­top, mo­bile etc). Re­sources are pooled across mul­ti­ple cus­tomers. Ca­pa­bil­ity can scale to cope with de­mand peaks & Billing is me­tered and de­liv­ered as a util­ity ser­vice.

With Nex­tGen server, Soft­ware de­fined stor­age, Ag­ile Net­work, Se­cu­rity de­vices and Vir­tu­al­iza­tion& Man­age­ment Plat­forms which are based on open eco-sys­tem(Open Stack), Huawei helps Or­ga­ni­za­tions to build a new State of the art Ser­vice Driven Cloud Plat­form, which en­ables flex­i­bil­ity and elas­tic­ity of ser­vice de­ploy­ment. Reduction in Pool re­sources re­duces hard­ware count, Lower op­er­at­ing costs, and reduction in en­ergy costs. Huawei brings in In­no­va­tive Tech­niques Make The Data Cen­ter Greener.

De­vel­oped by Huawei, Fu­sion­sphere is a cloud op­er­at­ing sys­tem that meets the needs of cus­tomers from a wide range of In­dus­tries. Fu­sion­sphere of­fers pow­er­ful Vir­tu­al­iza­tion and re­source pool man­age­ment func­tions, com­pre­hen­sive cloud In­fra­struc­ture com­po­nents and tools, and open ap­pli­ca­tion pro­gram­ming In­ter­faces (APIs). Huawei helps cus­tomers to build Cloud is a Capacity on De­mand Model helps or­ga­ni­za­tions to pro­vide a true cloud-era in­fra­struc­ture that de­liv­ers un­matched busi­ness agility, the high­est SLAs, sim­pler op­er­a­tions and lower costs.

Big Data is a re­al­ity to­day es­pe­cially Large En­ter­prise Busi­nesses and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vice providers that want to be in­no­va­tive to max­i­mize their rev­enue po­ten­tial. Big Data is high-vol­ume Highve­loc­ity and /or high-va­ri­ety in­for­ma­tion as­sets that de­mand cost-ef­fec­tive, in­no­va­tive forms of in­for­ma­tion pro­cess­ing that en­able en­hanced insight, de­ci­sion making, and process au­to­ma­tion. Fac­ing the chal­lenges of in­dus­try value chain shift and ma­tur­ing mar­ket, mo­bile operators need to dig into a wealth of un­tapped data as­sets to cost-ef­fec­tively cre­ate new busi­ness val­ues and make the best use of ex­ist­ing IT in­fra­struc­ture. Huawei big data plat­form helps or­ga­ni­za­tions to:

• En­hance­ment in day-to-day op­er­a­tions from cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence man­age­ment to ef­fec­tive cam­paigns, by lever­ag­ing new ca­pa­bil­i­ties of data man­age­ment and pre­dic­tive an­a­lyt­ics

• Op­ti­mized net­work investments and op­er­a­tions by in­cor­po­rat­ing new in­sight­ful data cut­ting across the lay­ers and adopt­ing data-driven an­a­lyt­ics

• An end-to-end vir­tu­al­ized plat­form, based on Hadoop and Spark plat­form and best-of-breed in­dus­try so­lu­tion, to en­able near-real time anal­y­sis on hun­dreds of ter­abytes of data

Huawei de­vel­oped An­a­lyt­ics Soft­ware Fu­sion Insight brings Big Data Hadoop and Spark tech­nolo­gies to­gether in an in­te­grated, en­ter­prise-class soft­ware plat­form for eas­ier, faster data anal­y­sis and bet­ter de­ci­sion-making

Huawei and In­tel Bring In­no­va­tion to Big Data Stor­age : Huawei OceanS­tor* 9000 big data stor­age sys­tem, based on the In­tel(r) Xeon(r) pro­ces­sor E5-2400 prod­uct fam­ily, is able to scale lin­early to 60 petabytes of data, un­der a sin­gle file sys­tem, pro­vid­ing cut­tingedge per­for­mance. Huawei Big Data An­a­lyt­ics plat­form en­sures:

• Op­ti­mized for agility:

Com­pre­hen­sive, fully fea­tured Big Data an­a­lyt­ics plat­form with open ar­chi­tec­ture and APIs sup­port­ing batch pro­cess­ing, mi­cro-batch pro­cess­ing, and real-time pro­cess­ing for flex­i­ble anal­y­sis and in­te­gra­tion with en­ter­prise data pro­cess­ing.

Over one mil­lion di­men­sions in data mod­el­ing en­able deep in­sights into user be­hav­iors, help­ing en­ter­prises to quickly make de­ci­sions and re­spond to mar­ket and busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Re­li­able, high-per­for­mance data pro­cess­ing with the re­li­a­bil­ity, sta­bil­ity, and se­cu­rity ex­pected in en­ter­prise­class ap­pli­ca­tions and mis­sion-crit­i­cal fi­nan­cial sys­tems.

OceanS­tor DJ, a data ser­vice plat­form that can pro­vide data stor­age and man­age­ment ser­vices on de­mand through uni­fied man­age­ment over stor­age re­sources, thereby greatly im­prov­ing op­er­a­tion ef­fi­ciency in data cen­ters. Draw­ing strength from best prac­tices ac­cu­mu­lated by Huawei over years, OceanS­tor DJ de­fines ser­vices by cus­tomeror­i­ented dic­tions and in­tel­li­gently pro­vides con­fig­u­ra­tion and match­ing of op­ti­mal stor­age re­sources, short­en­ing the time needed for de­ploy­ing an IT ap­pli­ca­tion to less than 300 sec­onds.

Thanks to OceanS­tor DJ, ad­min­is­tra­tors can flex­i­bly se­lect needed data man­age­ment ser­vices from en­ter­prise ap­pli­ca­tion mar­kets, de­ploy them in re­source pools of their cloud data cen­ters, and there­fore quickly es­tab­lish ap­pli­ca­tion sys­tems cus­tom­ized to par­tic­u­lar ser­vice needs with­out ex­tra op­er­a­tions such as stor­age con­fig­u­ra­tion, mount­ing, and tun­ing. Adding to its ap­peal, OceanS­tor DJ can im­me­di­ately ar­chive and re­cy­cle off­line ser­vice data and re­leased stor­age re­sources, no­tably en­hanc­ing IT op­er­a­tion ef­fi­ciency.

Or­ches­trated based on the stor­age hard­ware and soft­ware of the same brand, con­ven­tional ser­vice cat­a­logs tie up cus­tomers to cer­tain ap­pli­ca­tions. Free­ing up cus­tomers from worry of ven­dor lock-in, OceanS­tor DJ al­lows third-party ap­pli­ca­tions to pro­vide stor­age ser­vices with an open ar­chi­tec­ture. Huawei is closely work­ing with 30-plus stor­age ap­pli­ca­tion ven­dors, aim­ing to pro­vide pro­fes­sional and easy-to-use data ser­vices such as data pro­tec­tion, data­bases, Big Data, and data se­cu­rity through OceanS­tor DJ.

As­so­ci­at­ing with Disc Jockey (DJ), OceanS­tor DJ can sched­ule stor­age re­sources based on ser­vice char­ac­ter­is­tics, au­to­mat­i­cally de­ploy data man­age­ment ap­pli­ca­tions, and op­ti­mize re­sources in line with ser­vice dy­nam­ics the same way as a DJ se­lects and plays mu­sic to en­ter­tain au­di­ence. In re­sponse to the stag­ger­ing amounts of data in cloud data cen­ters, OceanS­tor DJ pro­vides stor­age as a ser­vice (SaaS) for en­ter­prise IT sys­tems, free­ing up en­gi­neers from heavy work­load in man­ag­ing data stor­age and making them more fo­cus on ser­vice trans­for­ma­tion and in­no­va­tion.
