OceanStor Dorado 5000/6000

Huawei OceanStor Dorado 5000 and 6000 are the next generation of mid-range all-flash storage systems. They are designed to meet the major concerns of high availability, utilization, and usability for medium and large enterprises, offering huge storage capacity and quick data access.

The systems are built on proprietary flagship hardware and FLASHLINK® intelligent algorithms — purpose-built for flash media. The systems also adopt end-to-end Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) architecture, and inherit the intelligence and efficiency and the high reliability of the Smart and Hyper series respectively for always-on critical services. In addition, they comprise a built-in intelligent accelerator module —an industry first — to make storage more intelligent during application operations.

OceanStor Dorado 5000 and 6000 excel in database, virtualization, and big data analytics scenarios, making them well-suited to industries such as carrier, finance, government, and manufacturing.
