Huawei's OceanStor Dorado V3 Series All-Flash Storage Is The First Flash Storage To Fully Support The NVMe architecture

Beijing, China ( BUSINESS WIRE ) - At the Data & Storage Summit in 2018, Huawei announced that its OceanStor Dorado V3 Series All-Flash Storage is the first to fully implement the Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) architecture supported. With this and other technical advantages, the OceanStor Dorado V3 offers exceptional memory performance and reliability to accelerate the digital transformation of businesses.

NVMe introduces a new standard protocol for accessing flash storage that helps resolve bottlenecks that occur when connecting flash storage to a system through SAS or SATA interfaces. NVMe enables faster communication between a solid-state drive (SSD) and a host system, dramatically improving overall performance.

The industry's only flash storage series to fully implement the NVMe architecture, the Huawei OceanStor Dorado V3 can support both NVMe and SAS SSDs in a single system. This versatility ensures the service quality of high priority applications and maximizes the company's return on investment (ROI). With SAN and NAS in one system and complete enterprise features, the OceanStor Dorado V3 delivers high-quality database and file-sharing services. In addition, the system minimizes the number of SSDs required by offering data reduction rates of up to 5: 1 while delivering extremely high performance.

In addition to NVMe, the Huawei OceanStor Dorado V3 uses three specially designed intelligent chips: a multi-protocol interface chip, an SSD controller chip, and a baseboard management controller (BMC) chip. Coupled with Huawei's intelligent FlashLink algorithm, these chips achieve consistent data acceleration and achieve industry-leading 0.5 millisecond stable latency. This high performance can significantly improve the efficiency of service process delivery for companies in the finance, telecommunications, manufacturing, medical and many other fields. The system's HyperMetro-based (active-active) gateway-free reliability solution implements 99, 9999% uptime and meets the highest reliability requirements of businesses. Even in active-active mode, this solution ensures a stable latency of 1 millisecond, ensuring stable operation of mission-critical applications around the clock. Based on 13 years of research and development, Huawei's OceanStor Dorado V3 Series All Flash Storage is the ultimate data platform for mission-critical services.
