Huawei Certified ICT Associate – Storage

Storage, in a narrow sense, refers to a specific device, such as a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or hard disk. For enterprises, tapes may also be used. In a broad sense, a storage device refers to a storage device used in a data center, which includes a storage hardware system, a software system, a storage network, and a storage solution.

Servers can access data in the storage hardware system only through the storage network. The storage software system manages the data in the storage system and combines multiple types of storage hardware and software to form a solution to meet high data management requirements of services, such as the data consolidation solution and disaster recovery and backup solution.

This course will introduce how storage supports the development and application of new IT frontier technologies (such as AI, big data, cloud computing).
