Huawei Joins Hands with Atempo to Launch a Massive Unstructured Data Movement Solution

Shanghai, China, 18 OctOBER, 2018


huaweiAt Huawei Connect 2018, Atempo and Huawei jointly announced the availability of a high-performance and massively scalable data movement solution, powered by Atempo, covering Huawei's full range of NAS and object storages.

Atempo and Huawei combine forces and leverage the expertise of two industry leaders to provide customers with flexible backup, archiving and migration for large NAS and unstructured data management.

In different verticals such as research, industry, education and healthcare, organizations are now generating and managing millions or billions of files of all sizes. The explosive data growth rates fueled by new business requirements like The Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning or the rise of 5G communication, are causing major disruptions for business infrastructures.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning applications require data to be increasingly available for analysis, on-premise or in the Cloud. Data needs to be moved, protected, and available at all times.

Huawei and Atempo have launched a number of joint programs with strong business-driven characteristics to respond to these rapidly evolving market demands:

  • Customers needing to protect large volumes of unstructured data that can no longer be fully backed-up using legacy backup solutions.
  • Companies needing to back up or archive large file data sets to the new Huawei Fusion Storage object storage system.
  • Projects needing to migrate mission critical file data sets to the Huawei file storage system.
  • NAS Workflows requiring automatic migration of cold data to the new Huawei Fusion Storage or to a public cloud.

Ferhat Kaddour, VP Sales & Alliances at Atempo explains: “Customers of all industries and fields are now facing petabyte-scale data volumes and they expect high performance and high reliability when moving these files between high performance NAS and second tier storage such as object and cloud storages.  Atempo’s collaboration with Huawei unlocks new levels of performance, reliability, and scalability for the migration, copy and protection of mission-critical data.”

“In this digital age, businesses are growing very quickly, and they need Data Center infrastructure that provides scalability and improves resilience. With Atempo’s expertise in data protection and storage, and Huawei’s experience in providing advanced NAS and object storage infrastructure, our converged solutions help businesses build a seamless architecture to compete in a fast-changing environment,” says Lough Liao, Director of Huawei FusionStorage Distributed Cloud Storage.

The joint solution leverages Atempo’s flexible architecture based on highly versatile Data Mover farms to deliver an optimized data throughput on par with  network and storage capacities. When a customer needs greater levels of backup or migration performance, we can simply add additional Atempo Data Movers to adjust to the increased workload.

The solution is also capable of gathering data from all scale-out NAS and move it to Huawei storages, NAS or S3-based storages using the same data mover farm. Atempo collects files, folders, symbolic links, etc. from the production storage to replicate them to the target platform, along with the original access control lists (ACLs).
