The Mobile World Congress (MWC) is an annual trade show organized by GSMA, which is a global organization of mobile technology operators and associate members, dedicated primarily to the mobile communications industry. At this event held annually in late February to early March, members discuss all aspects of business and upcoming trends. Much like most trade shows, it’s where participants like to introduce their latest offerings.

At this recent MWC, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., announced their proposed method for tackling one of the biggest challenges for traditional IT/CT services as it relates to data storages for Video, Big Data, and Cloud. Their solution was one that Vinpower has been touting for years, but I digress. Huawei said the future of cold storage is Blu-ray optical discs!

Their research shows that the proportion of cold data exceeds 70% of all stored data. Given the nature of cold data means it’s rarely if ever recalled by the owners, the companies holding that data require a low-cost archiving solution. In response, Huawei launched a Blu-ray storage initiative, which has a longer service life and reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by 70%. That means the ability to offload 70% of data from servers by storing it on Blu-ray optical discs, means the Cloud operators can saves 70% of costs related to electricity, hardware, and maintenance, let alone the tremendous reduction of environmental impact. Plus, optical discs provide an inherent protection against data breaches due to the content being kept offline with multifactor data protection against hackers and other data breaches.

All of this isn’t new, Vinpower has been proclaiming the benefits of cold storage on optical discs for years now, but what is new is the major investment and measured launch that large corporations are now taking this method seriously. So if you want to be ahead of the curve but aren’t a billion dollar corporation, contact Vinpower on ways we can help set you up with a cold storage solution on optical discs. Sometimes the best solutions are the simplest ones.
