Huawei Releases the Striding Towards the Intelligent World - Data Storage White Paper
BANGKOK, Sept. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

At HUAWEI CONNECT 2022, David Wang, Huawei's Executive Director of the Board 
and Chairman of ICT Infrastructure Managing Board, released a series of white 
papers entitled Striding Towards the Intelligent World.

Digitalization is just the beginning if we look at the global progress. It is 
expected that over the next decade, enterprises of all sizes will experience 
complications during their digital transformation (DX) journey. IT data 
applications will become more diversified, and increasing volumes of 
application data will be processed by the production systems, meaning the need 
for reliable, performant, cost-effective data storage is more important than 

For this reason, the Striding Towards the Intelligent World - Data Storage 
white paper presents Huawei's outlook for the storage evolution in enterprise 
data centers. Covering 9 topics, it provides enterprise customers with 
recommendations on data infrastructure development to jointly foster the data 
storage industry.

Outlook I: Unstructured Data

Unstructured data accounts for more than 80% of new enterprise data and is 
increasingly important to production and decision-making. It is necessary for 
enterprise IT teams to transform their structured data-centric capabilities to 
design, planning, and management of mass unstructured data.

Outlook II: Diverse Data Applications

Diverse data applications such as distributed databases, big data analytics, 
and AI are booming. Enterprises are encouraged to use the decoupled 
storage-compute architecture to serve emerging data applications for higher 
reliability. In addition, acceleration engines can be built for diverse data 
applications to implement near-data processing that delivers higher efficiency.

Outlook III: All-Scenario Inclusive All-Flash

All-flash storage accounts for more than 50% of the primary storage market, and 
the era of inclusive flash storage is coming. Huawei recommends that 
enterprises seize storage replacement and deployment opportunities to 
accelerate the adoption of all-flash storage.

Outlook IV: Ransomware Protection

Ransomware attacks are becoming the most significant threat to enterprises. 
Their storage teams are advised to establish a more comprehensive data 
protection system and build an all-round ransomware protection storage solution 
to strengthen the last line of defense for data protection.

Outlook V: Digital Resilience

As data is becoming the core asset for enterprises, digital resilience is a 
major metric for any enterprise resilience framework. Enterprises should 
strengthen data protection to ensure zero data leakage, tampering, and loss, 
always-on services, and always compliant access, thus enhancing digital 

Outlook VI: AI-Powered Storage

From management to products, AI powers autonomous-driving storage throughout 
the data lifecycle. It is recommended that enterprises proactively develop 
evaluation criteria for storage AI management software, and storage management 
teams upgrade tech stacks for storage AI.

Outlook VII: Multi-Cloud Architecture

As multicloud becomes the new normal, the recommended practice is to migrate 
innovative services that have uncertainties and emerging services like OA to 
public clouds, while retaining core services in their on-premises data centers. 
In multi-cloud construction, enterprises are advised to use the IT architecture 
that centrally stores and shares data and deploys applications in multiple 
clouds, and plan a unified data management platform across clouds to maximize 
data sharing.

Outlook VIII: Storage Business Models

A flexible storage business model helps handle explosive data volumes and 
economic uncertainties. Huawei recommends that enterprises plan how to obtain 
IT resources and select the most appropriate business model according to 
business requirements and future strategies.

Outlook IX: Energy Saving

Green data storage is a must for data centers to reach net-zero carbon 
emissions. Enterprises can deploy storage products with high-density designs, 
system convergence, and efficient data reduction to further reduce data center 
energy consumption.
