Mid tier storage , It has always occupied half of the whole enterprise storage , What is its future innovation direction , It is also the focus of thinking in the industry in recent years .

Just as data becomes the oil of the new era , The whole society is accelerating towards digitalization . Mid tier storage with a wide user base , In the digital transformation of enterprises, they are also given a new mission , That is, how to help users cope with the storage challenges brought by the explosive growth of data 、 Make full use of data value .

On the other hand , In the past few years , Midrange storage has always been criticized , It seems to have fallen into “ The dilemma of innovation ”, Far less dazzling than high-end storage . A few years ago ,Gartner Just cancel the high end 、 Midrange storage and other Magic Quadrant evaluation , Integrated into a universal array Magic Quadrant ;2020 In 2005, we further integrated all flash memory array and universal array , Launched the magic quadrant of primary storage .

Behind this seemingly unscientific , It's more like midrange storage accelerating technological change 、 Signals of self-renewal . for example ,Hitachi Vantara Recently, I put a big move , Officially launched a new mid tier storage product :VSP E590 and E790, In performance 、 Energy efficiency and intelligent management have brought unprecedented changes , by “ Mid tier storage ” Injected a whole new meaning .

Why mid tier storage is still important

“ In the past, core data was divided 、 Non core data . Now , All the data is important , All need to be well stored and managed . With PACS Take the data , In the past, I paid more attention to it 、 Emphasize the importance of capacity ; Now all kinds of digital applications are enriched , Doctors need to call at any time PACS Data in the system , Except for capacity , performance 、 Reliability is also important .”-- Last year, a top three hospital CIO It's impressive .

This is a part of the current digital transformation of Qianxing Baiye , It also reflects that users have higher requirements for data infrastructure represented by mid tier storage in the process of digital transformation . Unlike high-end storage, which focuses on industry leaders , Midrange storage has a wider user base , Its responsibilities and functions are becoming more and more prominent .

First , After a long test of the epidemic , The uncertainty faced by enterprises in the future is becoming a normal , Business is also accelerating toward online and digital , Data infrastructure, such as mid tier storage, is an important carrier of enterprise data , It is becoming an important guarantee for enterprises to deal with uncertainty .

secondly , With the digital transformation of enterprises, it has entered the deep water area , Hybrid cloud is becoming the first choice of more and more enterprises , The flow of data between clouds will become more frequent , And mid tier storage will become the data flow hub for medium and small enterprises in a hybrid cloud environment .

in addition , In the digital age, the pursuit of data value of enterprises is rapidly improving , Middle end storage plays an indispensable role in the process of enterprise data value mining and implementation .

“ Different from the simple business model of the past , Now small and medium-sized enterprises also need to face PB Level data requirements , And the cost 、 complexity 、 New technology and a series of challenges . All of these drive midrange storage to accelerate innovation .”Hitachi Vantara Xie Yong, chief technology officer and head of technical sales in China, said .

There are these important trends in midrange storage

all the time , High end storage 、 There is a clear distinction between mid tier storage and low-end storage 、 The boundaries are clear . There are some reasons for this , Some manufacturers have formed high-tech enterprises through acquisition and integration 、 in 、 Three lower product lines , Each product line uses a different operating system 、 The underlying microcode and functions ; The more central reason is , The amount of data in the past 、 Application scale 、 The complexity of the business is unmatched , At that time, it's easy to adopt high-tech services according to the application type and scale 、 in 、 Low storage .

obviously , Between these different products “ Divide and rule ” The situation is breaking . big data 、 The explosive growth of new applications such as artificial intelligence , Is profoundly changing the midrange storage . Take a new first tier city in Western China as an example , The third ring road alone has 6000 road 4Mb High definition video devices , Tens of millions of bayonet pictures need to be stored every day ,ETC Intelligent transportation is eager for fast performance of image recognition . so to speak , future PB Level data volume will also become a new normal for medium and small enterprises .

“ The challenges for medium and small businesses are very complex , The cost of trial and error is very high , And there's a lot of cost pressure , There's not enough system managers .” Xie Yong said frankly ,“ These realities drive that mid tier storage must be cost-effective 、 An effective tool to improve productivity , And it has to be simple to use .”

The specific term , The current midrange storage mainly reflects the following important trends :

firstly , Midrange storage is bound to be more comprehensive . For example, some highly available double live technology 、 Asynchronous disaster recovery and other functions of high-end storage will also appear in the middle end storage ; in addition , Midrange storage is in capacity 、 performance 、 There will also be a new leap in efficiency ,PB Class capacity 、 Higher IOPS、 The lower delay will be in Webmaster blog More and more mid tier storage is emerging .

second , Intellectualization will be an important trend of midrange storage . Different from leading enterprises , The size of management teams in medium and small businesses 、 The skill level of personnel is uneven , Determines the management of mid tier storage 、 The operation will need to be simplified ; And by AI Ability Injection , Improve the intelligent level of storage system , Simplify management and operation , It will be very suitable for the user's requirements of mid tier storage .

third , Data infrastructure such as mid tier storage is no longer a “ Isolation and closure ” The individual of . As more and more users adopt hybrid cloud , Data flow will become the norm , Data in devices and devices 、 The flow between clouds will become more frequent , This drives the midrange storage with a common storage operating system, which will help break the barriers between storage devices , Let the data flow , It's more conducive for enterprises to go to the cloud 、 Disaster recovery and other work .

As a leader in enterprise storage ,Hitachi Vantara In recent years, we have been trying to decentralize some functions and technologies of high-end storage to mid tier storage , And gradually explore a new way for mid tier storage in the technical level , Leading the development trend of midrange storage .

Hitachi Vantara A big move

“ You can't be radical about , Simply and rudely decentralize high-end storage functions and advanced technologies to mid tier products , It can help medium and small enterprises to improve .” This is what Xie Yong said ,“Hitachi Vantara The idea is to provide a unified storage product , Using the same underlying microcode and storage operating system , Unified management of all storage infrastructures , At the same time, some of the advantages and functions of high-end storage are applied to the middle end storage .”

in fact ,Hitachi Vantara Two heavyweight midrange storage products released today :VSP E590 and E790, For the whole midrange storage market , Represents the future direction of midrange storage .

These two products revolutionize midrange storage in five dimensions :

· The first is to provide excellent performance ,VSP E590 The highest IOPS Can be up to 400 ten thousand ,E790 It can reach 680 ten thousand , And the minimum delay of the two is 66 Microsecond , It's the best in the industry ;

· secondly , Two products are in 2U Space can provide more than 1PB Effective capacity of , It can also further expand the capacity through storage virtualization , Let the mid tier storage really enter PB Class Era ;

· Third , Two products can offer 100% Data availability for , Suitable for various business environments , It provides a great guarantee for the business of medium and small enterprises ;

· Fourth ,20 The deployment can be completed in minutes , It has a very simple management function , So that users can quickly start and use , Extremely efficient and practical ;

· Last , Two products are also available 4:1 Data reduction capabilities of , To provide users with a very high rate of return on investment .

Xie Yong said :“Hitachi Vantara Take the lead in NVMe Introduced to mid tier storage , And with Hitachi Ops Center, Provides many intelligent cross platform features , Including full path performance optimization 、 Smart debugging 、 Automation engine, etc , Point to point solutions to various storage challenges faced by users .”

Facing the future , Enterprises will enter the post epidemic era , Digital transformation is bound to accelerate further , There will only be more storage challenges for all kinds of enterprises 、 Not less . In this trend ,Hitachi Vantara Powerful innovation for midrange storage , Undoubtedly, it has brought a new voice to the market . Who says there's no innovation in midrange storage , Midrange storage will have a broader stage in the future .
