Highlights

Convergence

Convergence of SAN and NAS
Provides elastic storage, simplifies service deployment, improves storage resource utilization, and reduces Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Underlying storage resource pools provide both block and file services and shorten storage resource access paths to ensure that the two services are equally efficient.

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 2600 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.

Intelligence

Multi-tenant and Service Level Agreement (SLA)
Enable intelligent allocation of storage resources in cloud computing environments. The systems apply data isolation functions and data security policies such as data encryption and reliable destruction of obsolete data. With four service levels, the systems allocate storage resources based on service priorities. High-priority services thereby get an assured preference for system resources that minimizes response times.

Smart series efficiency improvement suite
Leverages dynamic storage tiering (SmartTier), intelligent data mig ration (SmartMotion), and innovative heterogeneous virtualization (SmartVirtualization) to achieve vertical, horizontal, and cross-system 3D data flow, significantly improving storage resource utilization.

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 offer 99.9999% solution-level availability and maximize business continuity

Leading active-active integrated SAN and NAS solution
One set of arrays support SAN and NAS active-active protection, guaranteeing high availability of databases and files. HyperMetro implements active-active mirroring with load balancing and cross-site takeover without service interruption, preventing data loss and system breakdown from occurring in critical application systems. The gateway-free design can effectively reduce the purchase cost, simplify the deployment, and enable the active-active solution to be smoothly upgraded to the Disaster Recovery Data Center Solution (Geo-Redundant Mode).

Easy to Manage

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.
