OceanStor Dorado 8000/18000

Huawei OceanStor Dorado 8000 and 18000 are high-end all-flash storage systems that deliver industry-leading performance of up to 40,000,000 Input/Output Operations Per Second and 99.9999% reliability. The high-end storage systems feature intelligent acceleration that is designed to meet the demands of core enterprise services.

They also adopt Huawei-developed hardware platform and the full-mesh SmartMatrix for 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. They ensure end-to-end reliability at all levels, from component, architecture, product, solution, all the way to cloud, supporting data consolidation scenarios with 99.99999% availability.

In addition, the systems also use FLASHLINK® intelligent algorithms purpose-built for flash media, and end-to-end Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) architecture, as well as inherit the intelligence and efficiency and the high reliability of the Smart and Hyper series, respectively. The systems also feature a built-in intelligent accelerator module — an industry first — to make storage more intelligent during application operations.

OceanStor Dorado 8000 and 18000 can easily meet the diverse 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 fields.
