Huawei’s new-generation intelligent all-flash storage takes a lead in SPEC NAS Performance Testing

During the SPEC SFS 2014_swbuild benchmark test, organised by Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC), Huawei‘s new-generation intelligent all-flash storage OceanStor 6800F V5 provides 500,009 operations per second (OPS), surpassing its competitors in all-flash Network Attached Storage (NAS) performance.

Founded in 1988, SPEC is a global and authoritative application performance testing organisation, designed to formulate a series of application performance evaluation standards. SPEC is a third-party organisation that consists of dozens of prestigious and influential universities, research institutes, and IT enterprises.

SPEC SFS2014_swbuild is the most stringent performance testing benchmark model SPEC has developed. This benchmark is used to test NAS performance in metadata-intensive scenarios and provide a standard measurement method for comparing the storage performance of devices from different vendors in specific application scenarios. According to test data, Huawei’s OceanStor 6800F V5 is leading its competitors, performing nearly twice as well as peer products in enterprise NAS performance.

In March 2018, Huawei released its new-generation storage systems, including OceanStor F V5 intelligent all-flash storage and OceanStor V5 hybrid flash storage, which take performance and integration to the next level. This is done by using architectures specifically designed for all flash and hybrid flash layouts to provide organisations with a more complete data management solution for their critical services.

In addition, the systems have built-in optimisations to enable all-flash, all-cloud, and all-intelligence strategies. These mid-range and high-end storage systems expand Huawei’s flash portfolio, enabling Huawei to meet an even broader range of customer requirements.

The industry-leading Storage Area Network (SAN) performance of Huawei’s OceanStor products has already been proven by SPC-1 testing. NAS performance test results at this time fully demonstrate the natural advantages of the parallel architecture used by OceanStor F V5 series. With leading SAN and NAS performance, Huawei is more than capable of providing customers with state-of-the-art storage products and delivering an improved data management experience.

Huawei NAS has been widely used all over the world, According to IDC‘s China Quarterly External Disk Tracker 2017, Huawei NAS ranks first in China and has been used in high-performance application scenarios throughout various industries. Such scenarios include oil and gas exploration in the energy field and EDA simulation in the manufacturing industry. Huawei NAS storage greatly reduces application response times, ensures business continuity, and further simplifies data management.
