Huawei’s High-End All-Flash Storage OceanStor Dorado18000 V3 Breaks Records in SPC-1™ Performance Testing

Nov 01, 2018

[Shenzhen, China, November 1, 2018] Huawei’s high-end OceanStor Dorado18000 V3 all-flash storage system achieved 7,000,565 Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) with the data reduction function enabled in SPC-1™ benchmark testing. This once again sets new records following 6,000,572 IOPS provided by Huawei’s intelligent all-flash storage, the OceanStor 18800F V5, in the same testing. This result places the Dorado18000 V3 in the frontrunner position in all-flash storage performance.

The OceanStor Dorado18000 V3 is the flagship product in Huawei’s Dorado V3 series. Designed for mission-critical enterprise workloads, the system leverages the latest Intel Purley CPU platform, intelligent Huawei-designed chips, and Huawei FlashLink® intelligent algorithm. Even with value-added features such as inline de-duplication, inline compression, and snapshots enabled, the storage system maintains a stable latency of 0.5 milliseconds. In addition, the system works with Huawei’s gateway-free active-active solution and converged data management solution to ensure high availability (99.9999 percent) for key workloads. The OceanStor Dorado18000 V3 uses inline de-duplication and inline compression to deliver a data reduction ratio of up to 5:1. These features reduce OPEX by 75 percent, while still allowing the system to achieve the highest all-flash performance available today.

Huawei is committed to continuously refining storage performance and reliability to satisfy ever-escalating demands to improve the application environments at enterprises of all sizes. Huawei Storage has taken part in SPC-1 performance testing since 2010. The OceanStor Dorado18000 V3 is the company’s latest offering to break away from the pack, demonstrating the immense performance advantages of Huawei all-flash storage technology under the scrutiny of industry-standard testing, and these accomplishments indicate Huawei’s commitment to providing industry-leading storage products.

Huawei Storage has been serving more than 8,000 customers worldwide. According to Gartner’s report1, Huawei ranked No.4 globally in shipped appliances in the first half of 2018, and No.1 in the China market in terms of sales revenue, total amount of shipments, and shipped appliances.
