Product Features


Ever-Fast Performance with Innovative Hardware

Innovative hardware platform:

Huawei storage’s hardware platform supports E2E data acceleration, increasing system performance by 30% over the previous generation.

  • The intelligent multi-protocol interface module hosts the protocol parsing that was previously performed by the general-purpose CPU, resulting in a 20% increase in front-end access performance.
  • With its industry-leading performance, the computing platform
    25% more computing power than the industry standard.
  • The intelligent accelerator module analyzes and comprehends I/O rules of numerous application models based on machine learning frameworks in order to implement intelligent memory space prefetching.
    The read cache hit ratio is increased by 50% as a result.

Intelligent algorithms:

Most flash providers lack the innate E2E capabilities required to ensure maximum performance from their SSDs. The OceanStor Dorado 3000 is powered by industry-leading FlashLink® intelligent algorithms that are built on self-developed controllers, disk enclosures, and operating systems.

  • Service splitting algorithm: Offloads reconstruction services from the controller enclosure to the smart SSD enclosure, relieving the controller enclosure’s load strain and allowing for more efficient I/O processing.

  • Many-core balancing algorithm: Utilizes a controller’s multi-core computational capabilities to maximize data processing capability.
  • Cache acceleration algorithm: Improves storage system intelligence during application operations by accelerating batch processing using the intelligent module.

FlashLink® sophisticated algorithms enable full use of all flash memory and assist Huawei OceanStor Dorado delivers unrivaled performance for a more seamless service experience.

E2E NVMe architecture for full series:

Enterprises have largely adopted all-flash storage to replace current IT systems, but always-on service models continue to push IT system performance boundaries to new heights. Conventional SAS-based all-flash storage cannot overcome the 0.5 ms latency limit. In contrast, NVMe all-flash storage is a future-proof architecture that uses direct connectivity between the CPU and SSDs to shorten the transmission path.

Globally shared distributed file system OceanFS:

The NAS is supported by the OceanStor Dorado 5000/6000 all-flash storage systems.To provide consistent NAS performance, function and utilize globally shared distributed file systems. The many-core processors of a controller process services concurrently to make full use of computing capacity. Furthermore, clever data prefetching and layout reduce access latency even further, achieving nearly 30% greater NAS performance than the industry’s prior standard.

Linear increase of performance and capacity:

To keep up with ever-changing business needs, unpredictable business expansion necessitates storage that provides simple linear increases in performance as more capacity is added. OceanStor Dorado 5000/6000 all-flash storage systems may be scaled out to 32 controllers, and IOPS improves linearly as the number of controller enclosures increases, matching the performance requirements of future company development.


Efficient O&M with Intelligent Edge-Cloud Synergy

Extreme convergence: 

The OceanStor Dorado 5000/6000 all-flash storage systems offer a variety of capabilities to suit a wide range of service requirements, increase storage resource usage, and substantially lower TCO. The storage systems support parallel access and provide both SAN and NAS services, ensuring the best path for dual-service access. The NAS and S3 convergence allows for file and object interworking in a single instance while also allowing for a smooth transition from file to object services. Cross-generation device convergence allows data to flow freely, simplifying O&M and lowering IT purchase expenses.

On and off-cloud synergy:

The OceanStor Dorado 5000/6000 all-flash storage systems combine general-purpose cloud intelligence with tailored

edge intelligence delivered via a built-in intelligent hardware platform, allowing for incremental training and deep learning

for a personalized client experience.

Intelligence throughout service lifecycle:

Intelligent management encompasses resource allocation, provisioning, system tuning, risk prediction, and fault identification, and allows for 60-day and 14-day predictions of performance bottlenecks and disk errors, respectively, as well as fast resolution for 93% of problems discovered.

Ransomware protection:

Ransomware poses a significant threat to cyber resiliency. With three layers of ransomware interception, as well as secure snapshot and isolation zone-based recovery, Huawei OceanStor Dorado all-flash storage systems take ransomware security to a whole new level. These storage systems have Huawei-exclusive detection and analysis engines that enable ransom file interception (pre-event), real-time ransom detection (in-event), and intelligent detection.
