OceanStor Dorado 8000/18000 V6

Huawei OceanStor Dorado 8000 V6 and Dorado 18000 V6 are high-end all-flash, Solid State Drive (SSD) storage systems that deliver industry leading performance of up to 21,000,000 Input/Output Operations Per Second (SPC-1 IOPSTM
), six-nines reliability (99.9999%), and AI acceleration, meeting the increasingly high requirements of core enterprise services.

Employing Huawei's brand-new hardware platform and the fully interconnected architecture of SmartMatrix to provide symmetric active-active services, the high-end storage systems set unprecedented standards for industry reliability, tolerating the failure of 1 out of 2 controller enclosures and 7 out of 8 controllers.

In addition, the storage systems utilize Huawei-developed intelligent chips, FlashLink® intelligent algorithms — purpose designed for flash media — End-to-End (E2E) Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) architecture, the intelligence and efficiency of the Smart series, and the high reliability of the Hyper series. They also feature a built-in AI chip — a first in the industry — to make storage more intelligent for application operations.

Dorado 8000 V6 and 18000 V6 can meet all performance or reliability demands of core services for medium and large enterprises, banks, and data centers, making them well-suited to the carrier, finance, government, and manufacturing industries.
