Chinese tech giant Huawei has launched its 2nd-generation solid state storage system, OceanStor Dorado2100 G2.
OceanStor Dorado2100 G2 includes an all-SSD storage architecture, meeting mission-critical services’ needs for high performance, the company said.
It delivers three times enhanced performance compared to the first-generation Dorado2100 and it is designed to meet the demanding performance requirements of latency-sensitive services.
Huawei Dorado series solid state storage systems are adaptable to application environments and also provide high-performance and reliable storage for core services, the company claimed
In addition to the VMware ESXi 5.1/5.0 certification, Huawei Dorado series have obtained SAP storage certification, enabling customers to apply the Huawei Dorado series to infrastructure virtualisation and core database applications.
OceanStor Dorado2100 G2 provides 8 Gbit/s Fibre Channel ports, 10 Gbit/s iSCSI ports and 40 Gbit/s IB QDR ports to support various networking modes.
Huawei added the thin provisioning function on the new system allocates the capacity on demand throughout service development phases, further improving return on investment (ROI).
Huawei’s new solid state storage system helps data centres handle internal data interactions rapidly, meeting applications’ needs for low access latency and optimising the efficiency, the company added.
OceanStor Dorado2100 G2 incorporates an active/active dual-controller architecture, together with the redundancy and hot-swap design implemented for all key components, allowing OceanStor Dorado2100 G2 to provide enhanced data protection, preventing a single point of failure and achieving MTBF of a million-hour level.
In addition the new storage system can be upgraded to provide customised service support for enterprises of various sizes, fully tapping its technical advantages to help enterprises ensure smooth running of mission-critical service systems, Huawei said.
OceanStor Dorado2100 G2 is based on advanced high-speed cache management and I/O scheduling algorithms and it provides quick response capabilities in complicated computing environments.
