Huawei OceanStor Pacific storage supports multi-protocol, ultra-high density and more



According to the latest information, the Enterprise Strategy Group also known as ESG laboratory shared a technical evaluation report of Huawei’s OceanStor Pacific series storage.

The description clearly mentions, Huawei OceanStor Pacific can uninterruptedly deliver high-performance and docile access capacities for large-scale data sets. This performance can also be seen under the high-performance data analysis scenario or HPDA.

Simultaneously, the high-density configuration can realize the total cost of ownership (TCO) savings of up to 61% by this solution. Technologies such as high-performance computing (HPC), big data, AI encouraging the industry to boost HPDA related technologies.

The new trend towards the HPDA boasts the demand for storage scalability with complex mixed loads and analysis efficiency. Now, storage scalability becomes the most demanded technology in the IT industry.


Let’s peak a glance at the characteristics of the storage scalability-

Multi-Protocol Support:

The multi-protocol support test has been conducted on Huawei OcenStor Pacific in standard conditions. The ESG shared the data sets using multiple protocols. At the same time, it verifies the semantic integrity, storage performance, and advanced features including snapshots, quotas, QoS, and multiple objects, etc.

The test results show Huawei OcenStor Pacific provides support for NFS, CIFS, HDFS, and S3 protocols. There is no problem in switching protocols as its shows the same results for various protocols without any hindrance such as data migration and guarantees semantic losslessness.

Mixed Load:

The complicated application load is one of the major challenges in data analysis. But, this is not the case with the Huawei OceanStor Pacific parallel file system. The ESG conducted this test based on Huawei Distributed Parallel Client (DPC).


It’s concluded that Huawei DCP supports simultaneous access to multiple storage nodes for a single user. At the same time, it reduces the single-client and single-stream performance blockage.

Furthermore, DPC holds MPI-IO and RDMA networks support, reduced response time metadata fragmentation and distribution, large and small I/O offloading, and dynamic disk indexing.

High-density design & TCO:

ESG compared the scale-out NAS system and Huawei’s OceanStor Pacific 9550 high-density system and concluded that Huawei’s OceanStor Pacific’s five-year TCO shows a 61% chance to reduced the cost.

Adding to this, Huawei’s OceanStor Pacific has an expansion capacity of up to 1.68PB with a cabinet area of 5U. At the same time, it saves about 64% in hosting costs, 62% in purchase expenditure, and 32% on the power supply and cooling.


The remarkable abilities of Huawei OceanStor have been clear after the ESG verification test. It supports multi-protocol integrated access, mixed load access, ultra-high density design, and lower TCO with ultra-high performace.

Enterprise Strategy Group:

The Enterprise Strategy Group is an authoritative evaluation organization, which is one of the top ten worldwide research and analysis consulting firms.

It provides the necessary direction on data center technology and business development for the related individuals and groups. It concludes results founded on a close-to-real application scenario and extensively precise tests.

Huawei takes world’s largest energy storage project to provide 1300MWh energy storage



Huawei energy storage project

At the 2021 Global Digital Energy Summit, Huawei takes the worlds’ largest energy storage project in its hands. The company will work in a corporation with Shandong Electric Power Construction Third Engineering Co., Ltd. to provide 1,300MWh energy storage at a large scale.

According to the reports, the Shenzhen-based firm participate in the Global Digital Power conference on 16th October, which was organized in Dubai. The AI, Cloud, and Big Data technologies in the field of low-carbon smart society were the topic of discussion at the summit.

There were many respected guests of Huawei Digital Technology who delivered the keynote speeches and shared their viewpoints in aspects of how to bring a greener future.

On this matter, Huawei executives informed that the 1300MWh energy storage scale is currently counted by the world’s largest energy storage project, not to mention the off-grid energy storage. After taking the Saudi Red Sea New City energy storage project, this Chinese firm will become the constructor of the largest energy storage base worldwide.

Furthermore, the media reports reveal that the Red Sea New City Energy Storage Project is one of the major highlights of the “Vision 2030” blueprint drafted by Saudi Arabia. In addition, the city is situated near the coast of the Red Sea that provides a suitable geographical environment to extract electricity energy resources.

Apart from Huawei, there are two other enterprises of Saudia Arabia that are contributing to this project. Among them, the ACWA Power will be responsible for the developer’s part while Shandong Power will provide the EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) supplies.

Previous News:

In July 2021, Huawei filed an energy storage system patent that was publicly shared on July 9th in China. This patent targets to normalize the hardware architecture and provides convenient maintenance with reduces costs. We can see the company has a long time preparation for the energy storage which is now gradually starting to implement in actual.

Alibaba plans to launch 5nm Arm server chip to compete with Huawei and Amazon



HiSilicon NB Iot

Arm server technology is becoming a new trend of Server business due to its flexibility, small size, efficiency, and low price. In the coming time, it might take an important turn for server-based computing while replacing the X86 server processors.

Speaking of which, the current server market has many rulers with the leading technologies. However, the top place is acquired by Intel with 90% for the X86 process technologies. Although,  Huawei’s Kunpeng Chips and Amazon’s AWS Graviton can be counted as new emerging leaders in the industry.

Now, recent reports show that the third biggest global provider of IaaS cloud- Alibaba is also planning to launch 5nm technology-based Arm server chip products. Afterward, it’ll count as another Chinese technology company to uses self-developed CPUs. Seems like, the service provider is preparing to compete with Huawei and Amazon.

Alibaba 5nm Arm chip:

According to the report, since 2019 Alibaba is researching the 5nm Arm chip processing technology with a complete exposition by the middle of 2021. The 128 cores and 5-nanometer processes technology has been used to reach the level of products from Huawei and Amazon.


In addition, at the Yunqi Conference, this Chinese cloud service provider recently informed that its most advanced server chip enters the manufacturing process. To be mention, Yunqi Conference is the yearly developer conference for Alibaba Cloud.

Furthermore, the next annual Yunqi Conference is scheduled for 19th October which will be held in Hangzhou China. In 2018, the company announced another chip-making subsidiary “Pingtou” which mainly manufactures end-to-end products such as Hanguang 800 chips.

Huawei ARM Servers:

The TaiShan ARM Servers of Huawei are the next-generation data center server-based on the Huawei Kunpeng processor. Meanwhile, the Kunpeng 920 processors are designed with multi-core computing architecture integrating superior computing technology.

This Shengzeng based firm mainly uses the 7nm technology with 64 2.6GHz core ARMv8 architecture to produce the ARM chips. Moreover, it mainly targets the requirements of diversified efficient computing power while preserving its security, and openness.
