    Purpose-built for mission-critical businesses, OceanStor Dorado V3 all flash storage system delivers high performance, reliability, and efficiency augmented by FlashLink technology.

    l Innovative FlashLink technology: enables 0.5 ms stable latency and 3-fold better storage performance than that of traditional san storage.

    l Gateway-free active-active solution with extremely low latency: HyperMetro technology provides solution-level 99.9999% availability with 1ms latency.

    l High-performance online deduplication and compression technology: helps Huawei storage claim 3:1 data reduction guarantee (depending on application and configuration) and maintain high performance.

    Huawei OceanStor Dorado V3 fully satisfies the high performance requirements of mission-critical database services and virtualization efforts, smoothing the way for customers in finance, manufacturing, telecom, and other sectors in the all-flash era.

    VDI scenario (VMware)

    Terminal management and delivery services are rather time-intensive and costly in traditional office layouts dominated by PCs. Virtual desktop infrastructures (VDIs) have become widely adopted in enterprise IT systems thanks to the ability to deliver, protect, and manage Windows-based or Linux-based desktops and applications on premise or in the cloud all while controlling costs. Adding to the luster, users are able to work from any location and at any time they chose. However, the performance requirements on centralized deployment of VDI systems are much higher than that of the traditional PC environment.

    1. Time-consuming O&M

    Deploying a VDI environment for 2000 users takes over 20 hours with traditional storage and it takes considerable time to perform expansions. When emergency situations require patching, it can take over 10 hours to install the patches and perform the restarts for 2000 desktops, causing serious impact to daily operations.

    2. User experience gap between virtual desktops and PCs

    The traditional VDI solution delivers response time of about 5 to 10 seconds to open a slide, Word, Excel, and other files.

    Compared to traditional storage devices, the Huawei OceanStor Dorado VDI solution provides extreme high performance to improve customer experience.

    Huawei VDI solution

    Huawei OceanStor Dorado V3 all-flash storage provides industry-leading performance and low latency, ensuring quick maintenance of VDI systems and good customer experience.


    The following testing indicates the experience differences between Huawei OceanStor Dorado V3 and traditional storage arrays in common VDI scenarios.

    Comparison of the best practice data of mainstream products and test results of Huawei solution is shown as follows:

    1. High O&M efficiency

    OceanStor Dorado V3 storage reduces the time to deploy 2000 desktops from 20 hours to 8 hours compared to traditional storage, and lowers the startup storm time by 75% (60 minutes to 15 minutes).

    2. Better user experience

    Compared to traditional storage, the response time to open office applications is shortened by 50%.
