Part 2: Simulators from Other Manufacturers
IT engineers often need to commission different storage devices in their work. Unlike other devices, they seldom have opportunities to lay their hands on storage devices and run some tests on them. Thanks to simulators provided by HP, IBM, DELL, EMC, and NetApp, these simulators help IT engineers have a better understanding of storage devices.

Part 3: Document Generator
A document generator provides customized documents (such as product installation, configuration, maintenance, and troubleshooting) as required.
Online versions can be generated and saved in web pages; while offline versions can be used to make customized materials when no network is available.

Part 4: Inspection Deployment Tool
Huawei-developed ISM ServiceTool features three functions, namely, deployment, inspection, and maintenance. These three functions are edged tools for maintaining products.
Huawei-developed Cloud Service can report fault device information remotely, significantly reducing time to report alarms and rectify faults.
Part 5: Related Tools for Pre-Sale Planning
During preliminary planning, market technical engineers plan storage capacity, calculate consumption, and compare with specifications. During bidding preparations, the engineers need to quickly query information about third-party authentication for Huawei storage devices. The following tools can meet market technical engineers' requirements:
Huawei Storage Consumption Computing Tool
Huawei Storage Capacity Performance Computing Tool
Huawei Storage Specification Comparison Tool
Huawei Storage Authentication Quick-Check Tool
Part 6: Other Common Tools
Easy Recovery, as a common third-party data recovery program, recovers data in scenarios where a file system is mistakenly formatted, a file system is changed to raw format due to damage structure, and a file is mistakenly deleted. Easy Recovery has an optimal performance in the first two scenarios.
The DiskGuard is the software used for continuous data protection. It consists of a service program deployed on an application server and a CLI. The DiskGuard provides detailed data protection policies for disks, disk partitions, and logical volumes. Based on a continuous- or periodic-protection mechanism, the DiskGuard protects disks without interrupting services and provides multiple snapshot duplicates for each production disk, allowing users to restore data at any point in time.
