 How to effectively store the massive data of enterprises in the era of digital economy from the perspective of ucloud?


On August 6, ucloud youkede officially released a new generation of archive storage products. The product adopts the new self-developed storage architecture of ucloud youkede, which reduces the storage cost by nearly 80% compared with the standard storage, and the price is as low as 0.024 yuan / GB / month. Compared with the similar archiving storage products in the market, the cost is reduced by nearly 30%. In addition, there are many bright spots in the product. After the product was released, the editors of IDC circle in China had in-depth communication with Wu binwei, R & D director of ucloud youkede storage platform, and senior R & D Engineer of ucloud youkede storage platform.

Archive storage has huge market potential and broad demand in the future

With the popularity of cloud computing, more and more enterprises save unstructured data such as pictures, text, audio and video through cloud platform. This is to compare the object storage services generally provided by major cloud platforms at present. This service has a wide range of applications. With the acceleration of social digital transformation, more and more traditional enterprises have begun to adapt to this way.

Mr. Wu binwei said that mainstream cloud computing service providers, including ucloud youkede, will call standard storage and low-frequency storage as object storage. This is also a cloud storage method with a wide range of applications and market prospects. However, the archive storage we mentioned today is also developed from a sub form of object storage.

Object storage refers to the hot storage of data, but in fact, because of the low access frequency, many of the data can be stored at a lower cost through archiving. Its just like we put winter clothes in the cupboard in summer, and hang summer clothes outside the cabinet. This can not only ensure the access efficiency of hot data, but also reduce the storage cost of cold data. As a result, archive storage has a broader future than object storage.

In particular, the emerging Internet companies have a higher acceptance of this storage method. We take short video platform as an example, because of its attribute of UGC, a large amount of content data is produced every moment. However, the process from hot to cold is very short, and the cost will be very high if the traditional object storage method is used. However, if the cold and hot data are treated differently by archiving, the cost reduction will be very obvious.

Archive storage will also have a bright future in traditional industries

In addition to Internet companies, as the pace of traditional enterprises on the cloud is accelerating, many traditional enterprises have begun to abandon the local storage mode and adopt private cloud for data storage. Wu binwei said that due to inertia thinking and cost considerations, many traditional enterprises still use local Blu ray tape storage, while object storage has no obvious advantage in this respect, but archive storage makes up for this.

Fang ran, senior R & D Manager of ucloud youkede storage platform, said that in order to reduce the hardware cost, ucloud UPC adopted the high-density JBOD model and SMR disk of Western data for the first time in China, and realized the implementation of this technology with self-developed storage architecture for the first time. The full name of SMR disk is stacked tile type magnetic recording hard disk. Compared with the traditional CMR disk, the biggest difference of SMR disk is that its track is distributed in a stacked tile mode according to zone. The advantage of this distribution is that it can store data with higher density. Compared with the 36 disk traditional model, the storage capacity of the unit rack is increased by 5.375 times, the number of disks is increased by 59%, and the storage space of single disk is increased by 150%.

In addition, ucloud also reduces operating costs through the concept of hardware and software collaboration. Combined with the selection of hardware, ucloud Youke has developed a new generation of disk power up and down scheduling system on the software level, which can guarantee the life of the disk, greatly reduce the power cost, and reduce the energy consumption of the disk by nearly 90%. In the pure write scenario, the energy consumption of the disk is 5% of the original. Through a series of software and hardware strategies, we can minimize the overall cost and effectively enhance the market competitiveness of archive products, Fang ran said. Postscript: driven by the new infrastructure, cloud computing will be popular in the future, and various application scenarios will be derived from the digital economy. Online education, cloud games, autonomous driving, smart community and intelligent manufacturing are many. Therefore, the explosion of data is irresistible. How to face these scenarios and provide users with optimal solutions to make their storage more efficient has become a problem that must be considered by various cloud platforms. And the archive storage products of ucloud Youke is indeed a good idea. Source: editor in charge of mass news: Chen Tiqiang_ NB6485
