Huawei Symantec Unveils OCEANSPACE and SECOSPACE

Oceanspace and Secospace are essentially hardware products (with software) that address dynamic scalability and green IT.

The ‘Oceanspace’ range of storage products for the Malaysia market were specifically designed to overcome the long-time bottleneck issues faced by Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in their storage space and architecture – where databases, emails, files and ERP applications are demanding more and more space. ‘Oceanspace’ encapsulates a converged storage strategy that mitigates complicated IT maintenance and energy-consumption issues, and keeps cost low by combining capacity and security into a single overhead.

Oceanspace series is essentially NAS.

Meanwhile, ‘Secospace’ is a new-generation hardware firewall range that works seamlessly with enterprise storage system to protect data during the peaks of network traffic, driven by both traditional applications (data transmission, VoIP and virtual private networks) and Internet-based services (such as net surfing, online games, video calling and social networking).

Secospace series is essentially firewall.

Therefore, the combination of these two products targets the growing markets of cloud computing and virtualization.

According to IDC,“Cloud Computing in an enterprise setting promises flexibility, cost optimization and faster turnaround. Worldwide IT spending on cloud services is set to reach USD42 billion by 2012 as this virtualization technology offers a much cheaper way for businesses to buy and use IT, and store data.”

The good news at local is that Jaring has just announced an initiative to create nationwide cloud computing facility.

The even better news is that Microsoft is taking cloud computing seriously, something which Google hopes to lead over Microsoft. Windows Azure was announced by Microsoft during the launched of Visual Studio 2010 and this suggests that cloud computing is going to take a lot of momentum.

A press conference was held, where it was announced that Oceanspace and Secospace will be offered to the local market via one of its appointed Malaysian IT distributors, ACA Pacific Technology (M) Sdn Bhd (‘ACA Pacific’).

Despite the large potential, ACA Pacific is targeting SME market as well. And thus, even small cloud can benefit from these two products.
