Barcelona, Spain – February 29, 2024 — / / — The Huawei Product and Solution Launch 2024 was held successfully at MWC Barcelona 2024. Dr. Peter Zhou, President of Huawei Data Storage Product Line, launched three innovative solutions aimed at helping carriers worldwide build leading data infrastructure in the AI era: AI data lake solution, all-scenario data protection solution, and DCS full-stack data center solution.

The rapid development of large AI models is unleashing the value of data assets and paving the way for an era of data awakening. There are two major challenges in data infrastructure construction in the AI era. First, to extract knowledge from data, independent and scattered data sources must be aggregated in AI data factories to mine value from the data. This sets high requirements for data mobility. Second, data assetization is growing at a rapid pace. The average retention time of annotated AI data and model data is now more than three years, and some valuable corpus data needs to be permanently stored.

To address these challenges, Huawei has launched a series of innovative storage products and solutions to help carriers build leading data infrastructure in the AI era and facilitate service innovation.

  • AI data lake solution for transferring mass data to valuable assets: This solution includes Data Management Engine (DME), a one-stop knowledge generation tool chain (eDataMate), data fabric, and the AI storage solutions OceanStor A800 and OceanStor A310. It makes AI training data globally visible, manageable, and available, and improves data collection, preprocessing, and training efficiency. In particular, OceanStor A800, a next-gen high-performance NAS storage solution, is a robust AI storage power foundation with a data and control plane separation architecture, the OceanFS high-performance parallel file system, flexible bidirectional expansion, and other capabilities, all designed to support real-time hyper-cluster scheduling.
  • All-scenario data protection solution for data production, backup, and archiving that boosts the resilience of data assets: This solution uses two layers of collaborative deployment. The first layer is production-backup collaboration, backing massive numbers of small files up 90% faster than conventional solutions. It also supports real-time native-format data analytics. Then is the backup-archive collaboration. Its post-deduplication tiering feature reduces bandwidth consumption by 80%. Additionally, Huawei launched the OceanProtect E8000 and X9000 data backup appliance solutions and next-gen OceanStor Arctic magneto-electric storage solution that is designed for warm and cold data at the event. The magneto-electric storage solution is predicted to reduce TCO by 20% than tapes and power consumption by 90% than HDDs.
  • DCS full-stack data center solution for helping carriers achieve higher IT service efficiency and agility: This full-stack solution, built on virtualization and containers, covers data collection, storage, computing, management, and usage, delivering comprehensive infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS).

Dr. Zhou said that AI is prompting a data awakening, which is accelerating the data assetization process. Huawei Data Storage will remain committed to providing storage solutions for all scenarios, to help carriers build leading data infrastructure in the AI era.

MWC Barcelona 2024 will be held from February 26 to February 29 in Barcelona, Spain. During the event, Huawei will showcase its latest products and solutions at stand 1H50 in Fira Gran Via Hall 1.

With the 2024 commercial launch of 5.5G, Huawei is collaborating with operators and partners around the world to pursue exciting new innovation in networks, cloud, and intelligence. Together, we will drive 5G business and foster a thriving industry ecosystem, creating a new era for intelligent digital transformation. For more information, please visit:
