Highlights

Simple and Easy-to-UseSimple and Easy-to-Use

 ■ Simple configuration: Huawei's unique tool SmartConfig significantly simplifies the configuration procedure. Resources can be allocated in minutes with only three steps. This eliminates the bottleneck of professional expertise of IT maintenance personnel, satisfying the requirements of simple and easy-to-use IT of SMB.
■ Unified management: Powerful storage management software supports global topology views, capacity analysis, performance analysis, fault diagnosis, and end-to-end service visualization to simplify management of a wide range of devices.

Innovative and Converged

■ Convergence of SSDs and HDDs: The design purpose-built for all flash architecture gives full play to the performance of SSDs and maintains a low latency of 1 ms or less. Combining the advantages of solid-state storage and traditional HDD storage, the systems enable the media performance to reach the full potential in different scenarios.
■ Convergence of heterogeneous storage systems: A built-in virtualization function efficiently manages storage systems from multiple vendors and unifies resource pools for flexible, centralized resource allocation and protects their data. In addition, original data can be migrated to OceanStor 2200 V3 so that services can be accelerated.
■ Convergence of high-end, mid-range, and entry-level storage systems: Any size system interworks seamlessly so data can freely flow among storage products of different models without the assistance of third-party systems.
■ Convergence of primary and backup storage: Integrated backup functions achieve efficiency without additional backup software, simplifying backup management

Smart and Efficient

■ Smart series efficiency improvement suite: Leverages dynamic storage tiering (SmartTier), intelligent data migration (SmartMotion), and innovative heterogeneous virtualization (SmartVirtualization) to achieve vertical, horizontal, and cross-system 3D data flow, significantly improving storage resource utilization. SmartQoS (smart service quality control) can schedule storage resources according to service priorities, to guarantee the performance and response speed of high-priority services.
■ Hyper series data protection suite: Software for functions such as remote replication, snapshot, and LUN copy provide local, remote, and multi-branch data protection to ensure business continuity and data availability.

Industry-leading Specifications

■ Outstanding performance: 2200 V3 storage systems employ the latest multi-core processors, 16 Gbit/s Fiber Channel, and 10 Gbit/s FCoE host ports, PCIe 3.0 buses, and 12 Gbit/s SAS 3.0 disk ports, which tops products of the same level.
■ Exclusive SmartIO cards: Each SmartIO card supports 8 Gbit/s Fibre Channel, 16 Gbit/s Fibre Channel, 10 Gbit/s Ethernet and 10 Gbit/s FCoE
