The Challenge
Midea's outdated IT infrastructure in some sites could no longer keep pace with company's growth, putting operational reliability at risk.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 Solution
Huawei’s solution replaced the outdated servers at the three production sites with Huawei’s RH2288 V2 servers and used software to virtualize the servers to improve the utilization of server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.
