Huawei’s FusionStorage is a distributed block storage software specifically designed for the storage infrastructure of cloud computing data centers. Similar to a virtual distributed SAN storage system, FusionStorage employs distributed technologies to organize HDDs and SSDs of x86 servers into large-scale storage resource pools and provide standard SCSI as well as iSCSI interfaces for upper-layer applications and virtual machines.
FusionStorage utilizes distributed hash-based data routing, distributed caching, global load balancing, and multiple data protection technologies to provide high-performance block storage. These advancements ensure efficient, stable operations for key services in a variety of industries, including finance, telecommunications, securities, electricity, oil and gas.
