UIT Presents at VMware vForum 2010
Beijing VMware vForum 2010, the most influential virtualization and cloud computation feast in China, was held today in the conference center of Beijing International Hotel. As the cooperative partner of VMware and one of the sponsors of this forum, United Information Technology Co., Ltd. (UIT) attended the forum to showcase its latest storage products and solutions that employ the VMware virtualization technology, designed to promote the development of storage virtualization. Today, as enterprises demand ever more storage resources, the storage virtualization technology plays an increasingly important role in asset optimization, data mobility enhancement, efficiency improvement, and cost reduction. UIT, as one of the leading manufacturers in China's storage industry, is committed to boosting the development of storage virtualization and building flexible storage infrastructure for our customers. To this end, we must break deadlocks between physical storage devices, reduce storage costs, and improve the management and utilization efficiency of storage resources. At this conference, UIT unveiled its new-generation unified storage system and shared virtualized disaster recovery solution, showing the attendees how to simplify the IT architecture and transform the data center from a physical architecture to a manageable virtual system by applying the virtualization technology to storage devices, thus implementing the mode of Information Technology as a Service (ITaaS).
Integrating the VMware virtualization solution and the virtual storage architecture, the new-generation unified storage system of UIT realizes convergence of FC-SANs and IP-SANs, implements unified deployment and centralized management of the high-performance SAN, and provides a stable and reliable VM. The new-generation unified storage system of UIT supports thin-provisioning and centralized management of the VM. It can improve storage resource utilization while simplifying VM management and resource allocation. Meanwhile, the system provides various advanced data protection functions, which ensure service continuity in the virtual environment and thus bring more benefits to customers. The new-generation shared disaster recovery solution of UIT makes full use of the advanced server virtualization, storage virtualization, and cloud storage technologies, dynamically disassembles customers application requirements, and allocates system resources flexibly to optimize resource utilization and reduce the TCO. The virtualized data center empowered by the VMware technology guarantees application separation and system security. The combination of UIT storage virtualization and VMware VMotion/HA ensures high availability, and improves the services of the disaster recovery center by supporting "flexible deployment and hierarchical services." As a leading storage device manufacturer in China with strong R&D capabilities, UIT is in possession of a worldwide R&D system and a team of hundreds of domestic and overseas R&D experts. In virtue of all these resources, UIT carries out technological innovation and R&D in the emerging storage field to address customers' present and future requirements. From August 30 to September 2, UIT participated in the VMworld 2010 conference in San Francisco, USA to introduce its new-generation unified storage system, cloud storage solution, and 1U and 2U storage products. Co-developed by UIT and our strategic partner, the U1 and U2 storage products feature low power consumption and server architecture. UITs successful debut in the world-class exhibition has attracted broad attention from the industry.
Backed by the cutting-edge virtualization technology of VMware with our innovation and R&D capabilities, UIT will launch more products and solutions based on storage virtualization and cloud storage. We will continue to provide high-performance, manageable, and high-availability storage services for our customers, helping them address complicated application requirements, reduce the OPEX, improve service continuity, and provide various data services.
