Promoting the development of data storage business through standardization.
Intel gives thumbs up to UIT all of us know that the development of data storage business is the third wave in the IT sector after the computer and internet. The development of data storage business. Data storage will be the sunrise industry which can sustain its development in the IT sector. The various standards adopted by different platform is a key issue that needs to be tackled for the development of data storage business. The demand among clients for standardization is the key motivating force behind the data storage business development. The data storage business as the third wave in the IT sector can only be strengthened through standardization.
The standardization of data storage is being rapidly developed in China. One of the highlighted events for such development is the cooperation between Intel and UIT (United Information Technology). Intel will combine the strength of UIT in data storage system softwares, products, solutions to develop a standardized data storage platform based on the open structure of Intels next generation CPU. The cooperation will lower development and operation cost, enhance the flexibility and expandability of the data storage system, and simplifies data storage procedure.
Intel director for marketing storage Seth Bobroff said, The market can benefit a lot if professional data storage service providers like UIT use standardized open structure platform. The different pioneering data storage service providers have their own advantages. They will fully utilize the advantages of Intel technology if they use standardized platform. Data storage is a very crucial business for Intel. UIT has very strong research and development capacity. Its data storage technology and products can help Intel better promoting to clients its leading storage platform. We hope that we can work with UIT, the professional data storage service providers, to suit the needs of different aspects and cooperate in different directions.
The strong research and development capacity of UIT is the reason for the company to be recognized by Intel. UIT is a service provider with strong data storage technology research and development capacity in China. It has established research and development centers in Shenzhen, Wuhan in China, Silicon Valley in the US and Ireland in Europe. It brings forth the new development in applied storage, universal storage and cloud storage to satisfy the needs of Chinese customers. Its data storage products are incorporated with various applications including IP SAN, FC, SAN, and NAS. UIT always develops data management software, providing the most effective data storage and management platform for clients.
The next generation Intel data storage chip is based on Nehalem structure. The chip is specially designed for the use in embedded and storage system. It is equipped with solo, duo and 2 quad processors. The use of underclocking, hibernation and energy saving technology has created a breakthrough in the data storage chips in terms of bandwidth, data processing capability and energy saving. UIT will develop a series of products based on Intel next generation data storage chips, such as IP SAN, FC SAN, NAS, VTL, data duplication and encryption products. UIT will also fully utilize the 10G iSCSI, 8GB FC, FCoE, 6Gb SAS, SSC techniques. The latest products will be available in the market in the first half of 2010. Meanwhile, UIT and Intel will use the next generation storage CPU platform to develop the latest cloud storage system; virtualization software and SAN environment of manage heterogeneous models.
It is expected that the cooperation between UIT and Intel will open a new chapter in the standardization of Chinas data storage technology. China Software Industry Association president Chen Chong said China needs to develop its own brand in data storage for national data security. The core element of developing Chinas own brand is to make use of innovative technology and the latest in data storage technology. The cooperation between UIT and Intel will open a new era in the innovation of Chinas data storage industry and data storage standardization.
