Gebündeltes OceanStor N8500 NAS-System von Huawei mit Höchstleistung im SPEC-Test

ESCHBORN, Deutschland, 5. November 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei, einer der weltweit führenden Anbieter für Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie, gab heute bekannt, dass sein gebündeltes Network Attached Storage (NAS)-System OceanStor N8500 im Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC)-Test SPECsfs2008 eine Leistungsspitze erreicht und den Branchenrekord im Bezug auf NFS-Benchmarks gebrochen hat. Bereits zum dritten Mal nach 2009 und 2011 erzielte Huawei damit das beste Ergebnis im Benchmarktest von SPEC, einer Standard-Leistungsbewertung.

OceanStor N8500 ist ein wichtiges Produkt in der OceanStor N8000-Reihe von Scale-out-NAS-Produkten, die sich an den mittleren und hochpreisigen Märkten orientieren. Dieses Produkt verfügt über die schnellste Datenverarbeitungs-Kapazität in der Branche und erfüllt die hohen Anforderungen an die Speicherleistungen in einer Umgebung mit großen Datenmengen. Der OceanStor N8500 nutzt die Multi-Node-All Active Cluster-Technologie mit allen Engine Nodes im selben Cluster. So können die Nodes an der Transaktionsverarbeitung arbeiten und gleichzeitig auf eine einzelne Datei zugreifen. Darüber hinaus unterstützt das OceanStor N8500-System 256 Namespaces, von denen jeder eine Milliarde Dateien speichern kann, was eine gesamte Speicherkapazität von insgesamt rund 100 Milliarden Dateien bedeutet. Die neueste Version des OceanStor N8500-System unterstützt bis zu 24 Engine Nodes, deren Scale-Out-Funktion das lineare Wachstum der Systemleistung ermöglicht. Der neue OceanStor N8500 mit 24 Engine Nodes ist hinsichtlich seiner bahnbrechenden Ergebnisse im SPECsfs2008 Benchmark-Test mit der Gesamtleistung von mehr als drei Millionen Operationen pro Sekunde (Operations per Second, OPS) und einer Single-Node-Leistung von 125.000 OPS in der Branche führend.

Das Ergebnis dieses SPECsfs2008 Benchmark-Tests zeigt, dass der Huawei OceanStor N8500 mit 24 Engine Nodes mit einem Linux/UNIX-Host, in dem das NFS-Protokoll aktiviert ist, mit bis zu 3.064.602 OPS die doppelte Leistung des bisherigen Rekordhalters erzielen kann.

Shane Warden, General Manager bei IMG Media House, erklärte: „Was uns wirklich beeindruckt hat, war die Qualität der Technologie, kombiniert mit dem kreativen Ansatz der Huawei-Ingenieure. Wir hatten auch mit anderen Anbietern verhandelt, die uns alle mitteilten, dass das, was wir wollten, nicht möglich sei. Huawei hat diese Hürden offenbar überwunden. Sie haben hart gearbeitet, um tiefere Einblicke in den Broadcast-Bereich zu gewinnen und eine Lösung zu finden, die unseren Bedürfnissen entspricht."

Fan Ruiqi, Präsident der Storage Product Line bei Huawei, bemerkte: „Das Zeitalter der großen Datenmengen steht bevor. Angesichts komplizierter Geschäfts-Systeme und sehr hoher Anforderungen an die Datenverarbeitung müssen wir ein schnelleres und flexibleres Speicher-System anbieten. OceanStor N8500 ist dank hoher Leistungsfähigkeit, Skalierbarkeit und Verfügbarkeit ein Vorzeige-Produkt einer Speicher-Lösung für große Datenmengen.

Docker is an excellent platform for organizations interested in running microservices. It offers portability and consistency between development and production environments, quick provisioning times, and a simple way to isolate services. In his session at DevOps Summit at 16th Cloud Expo, Shannon Williams, co-founder of Rancher Labs, will walk through these and other benefits of using Docker to run microservices, and provide an overview of RancherOS, a minimalist distribution of Linux designed expressly to run Docker. He will also discuss Rancher, an orchestration and service discovery platf...
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...
PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...
Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Kumar Ramamurthy, Vice President and Chief Technologist, EIM & Big Data, at Virtusa, will discuss how this is achieved by eliminating the operational challenges of running Hadoop, so one can focus on business growth.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...
