Huawei Launches Flash-based Enterprise Storage System OceanStor 18800F

Sep 02, 2013

Shanghai, China, September 2, 2013 – Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today launched OceanStor 18800F, the industry’s first enterprise storage system that features an all-flash design, with the highest performance, and lowest latency, at Huawei Cloud Congress 2013 (HCC 2013).

Nowadays, as enterprise data centers perform more critical services, data is more frequently moved and used than before, drawing for more demands for lower latency and higher service level agreement (SLA). Traditional enterprise storage systems can no longer meet these requirements and are faced with the urgent need to change.

Huawei OceanStor 18800F is developed based on the Huawei storage’s philosophy, "Intelligence on Demand, Convergence for Future" and perfectly combines solid-state storage and enterprise storage by employing Smart Matrix Architecture and innovative RAID2.0+ For Flash technology. The OceanStor 18800F features high performance, low latency, robust reliability, and flexible scalability of solid-state storage and enterprise storage, delivering diversified software functions such as replication, cache partitioning, and QoS.

The all-flash design enables the OceanStor 18800F to achieve million-level IOPS (based on the standard testing model) and microsecond-level latency, making it the fastest and the only enterprise storage system in the industry that offers microsecond-level response. Meanwhile, the OceanStor 18800F is the industry's first enterprise storage system that eliminates disk failure.

"As the first and the only vendor that develops enterprise storage systems, solid-state drives (SSDs), and SSD controllers, Huawei values the importance of the combination of storage systems and flash memory", said Mr. Fan Ruiqi, President, Huawei IT Storage Product Line. "The OceanStor 18800F is essentially different from the storage systems currently in the market. It is a converged solid-state enterprise storage system that takes the lead to use all-flash technology in the enterprise storage field."

Huawei OceanStor 18800F fuels the application of flash technologies and brings silicon chips into full play in storage capability enhancement, eliminating CIOs' worries about vibration, bad sector, aging, and corrosion issues and improving the efficiency of data centers to the maximum.
