With V3 storage, Huawei brings the value proposition of helping customers build business-driven, on-demand, and cloud-oriented storage services, said Sameer Rawal, vice president, Huawei Enterprise Business Group in India.

OceanStor V3 series leverages a storage operating system built on a cloud-oriented architecture and a suite of intelligent management software.

The system enables five levels of convergence, including storage area network (SAN) and network attached storage (NAS) convergence, high-end, mid-range and low-end convergence, solid state drive (SSD) and hard disk drive (HDD) convergence, main storage and backup convergence, and heterogeneous storage convergence, Huawei said.

The storage solution provides data storage for applications such as large-database Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), Online Analytical Processing (OLAP), file sharing, and cloud computing, and can be widely applied to industries ranging from government, finance, telecommunications, and energy, to media and entertainment.
