[Beijing, China, October 24, 2018] The 14th China International Exhibition on Public Safety and Security 2018 (Security China 2018) was held in Beijing from October 23 to 26. More than 8000 public security facilities and solutions suppliers gathered to demonstrate the latest technologies and products in the security field in the hope of winning the coveted "2018 Innovative Products" award. This year, Huawei OceanStor 9000 Distributed Cloud Storage was awarded "Major Industry Innovation Contributor" by the China Security and Protection Industry Association, who recognized the product's perfect matching with video storage needs, outstanding performance, and cost-effective large-capacity storage features.
Huawei is always committed to providing professional and complete ICT infrastructure for urban public security maintenance and Safe City construction and promotion with partners. Huawei's public safety storage solutions powered by OceanStor 9000 have been deployed in over 200 cities in more than 80 countries and regions, serving more than 1000 customers worldwide. Furthermore, OceanStor 9000 has an increasing sales volume in 12 consecutive quarters. Recent examples highlight OceanStor's global success. Huawei adopted a video cloud solution centering on OceanStor 9000 to help Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar build a large-capacity video storage system. A similar video cloud solution was deployed in Suzhou, China, facilitating the construction of a public safety video sharing platform. In China alone, Huawei's OceanStor 9000 has been widely used in Jiangsu, Beijing, Gansu, and Qinghai.
Want to know how OceanStor 9000 is taking the world by storm? First, it supports high-performance reads and writes, and improves data access efficiency by using global cache, TOE/RDMA, and SSD-based storage metadata acceleration technologies. In addition, it supports multi-node concurrent access, ensuing high-speed storage experience for users. It supports automatic load balancing between nodes and enables capacity expansion viable for at least five years in the future. While a single node on OceanStor 9000 supports video ingesting of more than 600 channels (twice that of peer products in the industry), the performance of OceanStor 9000 also increases linearly as the number of nodes grows. When used for image storage, a node supports 1500 OPS, three times that of peer products from competitors. This means that in comparison to peer products, customers need only half the number of storage devices while enjoying the same number of cameras when using OceanStor 9000.
For video storage scenarios with massive amounts of unstructured data, Huawei's OceanStor 9000 is a pioneer in the industry, supporting 14 TB large-capacity disks and improving storage density with an overall disk utilization of up to 80%. Compared with common storage solutions using 8 TB disks, Huawei's economical, efficient video storage solution powered by OceanStor 9000 with 14 TB disks saves more than 40% equipment room space with 50% lower energy consumption.
Based on multiple standard protocols, the OceanStor 9000 helps build an open ecosystem and supports storing, forwarding, and analysis of video data for various security applications. It facilitates comprehensive data governance including data collection, sorting, and mobility, and analysis, helping customers tap into the value of data and transform traditional video services into innovative video services centering on intelligent data monitoring.
Huawei boasts industry-leading security storage technologies and product portfolios powered by open architectures. Huawei provides users with innovative, economical video storage solutions featuring high performance and robust reliability. By safeguarding practical security applications, Huawei aims to help ensure the sustainable development of the video storage industry.
