OVERVIEW
Midea's outdated IT infrastructure in some sites could no longer keep pace with company's growth, putting operational reliability at risk. The legacy data backup system could not backup at some production sites. Some sites were still using the x86 server’s local hard disks as the backup media, resulting in limited backup size. The existing backup system was inefficient.
The Midea Group is one of the largest white goods household appliance manufacturers and exporters in China. Midea Group has approximately 135,000 employees and more than 60 branches outside of China, selling products in more than 200 countries.
Huawei’s solution replaced the outdated servers at the three production sites with Huawei’s RH2288 V2 servers and used software to virtualize the servers to improve the utilization of server resources and simplify device Operation and Maintenance (O&M). Midea also deployed one Huawei VTL6900 with an all-in-one architecture and a maximum of 48 TB capacity as the backup media.

Software Components
- Symantec Backup Exec 2010 software
Enterprise data about operation, management, product development, manufacturing, logistics, and eCommerce
IT
Emerging (technology has been on the market for >2 years)
OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Data Aggregation - Cloud solutions enable aggregation of 'big data' to enable more robust analysis and lower costs.
Data Safety - Data reliability and security enables Midea to generate data sets and utilize them in an actionable way.
System Flexibility - Ongoing application development and improvements are relatively quick and inexpensive to implement due to the system's flexibility.
QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
The VTL6900 improves the efficiency of massive small file backup to a maximum of 2.34 TB per hour.
TECHNOLOGY
IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.
