OceanStor 2800 v3 Video Cloud Converged Storage System

Huawei OceanStor 2800 V3 video cloud converged storage system is a next-generation high-performance virtual storage system dedicated to the video surveillance field. While retaining IP-SAN access capabilities, the controllers adopt an open converged data platform, giving full play to the computing capabilities of the controllers. Users can migrate video applications that were deployed on physical severs to storage controllers. Open and direct storage of video streams, rapid video aggregation capabilities, robust data protection options, and many other easy-to-use utilities make integration with ISV service platforms simple when building large video cloud storage systems, significantly reducing TCO.


High Performance and Robust Scalability

■ Industry-leading hardware architecture: The latest Intel multi-core processors, next-generation PCIe 3.0 buses, and 12 Gbit/s SAS 3.0 high-speed disk enclosure interfaces fully satisfy demands from highbandwidth applications such as video, image, and large file transfers.
■ High performance: One OceanStor 2800 V3 device supports concurrent recording of 400 HD video channels at 4 Mbit/s and concurrent playback of 100 HD video channels at the same rate. In IP SAN mode, one device supports concurrent recording of up to 1600 video channels at 4 Mbit/s and concurrent playback of 400 channels at the same rate.
■ Powerful scalability: Huawei OceanStor 2800 V3 supports highdensity disk expansion enclosures and one device can house up to 750 disks.
■ Multi-protocol host ports: GE and 10GE

Open Converged Data Platform

■ Open converged data platform: Makes full use of the computing resources of storage controllers and applications on a maximum of six physical servers can be integrated on the platform.
■ Architecture that converges computing and storage resources and supports open and direct storage of video streams: Open storage platform management interfaces support open and direct storage of video streams and policy management and can seamlessly integrate with ISV/SI application management platforms.
■ Flexible configuration template: Different configuration templates available to suit platform software types, enabling rapid service rollouts.

Simple to Manage, Easy to Maintain

■ Optimized data access path: Video data services are directly provided by the underlying storage pool, shortening the data access path. Applications in the open converged data platform are mounted to back-end storage resources through internal channels, improving system performance.
■ Easy-to-use management and maintenance tool: A unified management interface supports light-, SMS-, and email-based alarm notifications as well as one-click online firmware upgrade, greatly reducing operation and maintenance (O&M) costs

Outstanding Reliability and High Availability

■ Image repair and video restoration: Huawei special image repair and video restoration technologies ensure that the system can reliably work on a 24/7 basis. If a RAID group fails, all video data can be used with no interruption to video data read and write operations.
■ Rapid data recovery: Compared with the reconstruction speed of traditional technologies, the new hardware platform-based RAID 2.0+ data protection technology accelerates the reconstruction speed by 20 times. Employing special hardware designs such as shockabsorbed spring plate fans and technologies such as disk S.M.A.R.T. information test and disk bad sector repair, the RAID 2.0+ technology minimizes impact on services during data reconstruction events.

Energy Efficiency

■ 16-level intelligent fan speed control: Intelligently tunes the fan speed based on the operating temperature, reducing fan power consumption and noise and enhancing the device's environment adaption capabilities.
■ Intelligent CPU frequency control: Intelligently adjusts the CPU operating frequency as service workloads change to lower the overall power consumption.
