What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud Computing setup consists of the following components:

  1. Cloud Computing Infrastructure. Usually is a large infrastructure built to offer resources as a services in Internet
  2. The Network. Provide the connection to the Cloud. Usually refers to Internet, but can only be private network for Private Cloud
  3. End Devices. These can be desktop, laptop, tablets or even mobile devices. 

You will see typically 3 types of cloud service model

  1. IaaS - Infrastructure as a Service: These are the Virtual IT Resources including Compute, RAM, Storage and Network components. IaaSnormally support multi tenancy and are provisioned as needed
  2. PaaS - Platform as a Service: Software Platforms that enable Applications, Web Platforms, Service Delivery Platforms
  3. SaaS - Software as a Service: Business Applications that are rented on a usage basis

And these Cloud service model can be deployed as Private Cloud, Public Cloud or Hybrid Cloud

As users, you can subscribe to the cloud services without worrying the under lying complexity of setup. The service provider will perform the end to end management, end to end security mgmt, and end to end automation and on-demand mgmt.

You can expect Cloud to have the following features:

  • Delivered as a service: No in house development
  • Pay for only what you use: Consumption based Model  
  • Flexible: Resources are Virtualized and  Capacity is available “On Demand” to meet the needs of end users fluctuating or diminishing IT requirements

We’re launching our cloud offering with:

Main functions:

The production system is deployed in your data center, and the DR system is deployed on the cloud. You can access the VPC through the IPsec VPN or Direct Connect connections. Data synchronization is implemented based on different replication technologies.

Synchronous or asynchronous System Replication is adopted, depending on the network latency determined by the distance between your data center and cloud data center if making use of application level replication.

 

Advantages:

Secure and reliable: Encryption for network transmission ensures secure  and reliable data transmission. Huawei Tier-3 cloud data center and ensure the security and reliability of cloud resources. Synchronous sytem data replication ensures zero loss. 

High resource utilization: In SAP environments, when Preload is set to Off  for HANA on the standby node, you can install and run the HANA database  for development and test. If a failover occurs, the database for installation  and test is stopped to perform failover.

 

DR to HUAWEI Cloud using Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery and Backup

The Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery and Backup solution provides customers with multi-cloud and cross-cloud DR and backup capabilities with support for comprehensive data protection policies. It guarantees service continuity and keeps critical data secure with solution-level highreliability.

Backup and Archive provides a secure, economical and easy-to-manage data protection solution for backing up and archiving local data to the cloud, reducing costs and mechanism complexity with as-a-service convenience.
