Converged and Unified

  • Multi-controller architecture: provides scale-out capability to linearly improve performance, meeting ever-increasing service needs.
  • Heterogeneous virtualization: consolidates storage devices from mainstream vendors to manage and allocate storage resources in a flexible and unified manner.
  • Unified storage of file- and block-level data: supports SAN and NAS protocols, allowing structured and unstructured data to be stored in one storage system.
  • Convergence of storage protocols: supports diversified storage networks and protocols such as iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NFS, CIFS, HTTP, and FTP.


Various Functions

  • SmartQoS: intelligently schedules storage resources based on priorities of services to optimize resource allocation.
  • SmartPartition: sets cache partition goals for mission-critical services, dynamically allocates cache resources to services based on the goals, and isolates cache resources of services, preventing unnecessary cache contention and ensuring performance of mission-critical services.
  • SmartMotion: dynamically migrates data based on service changes to balance loads within the storage system.
  • SmartTier: intelligently relocates data among different storage tiers based on data activities to optimize performance.
  • SmartVirtualization: consolidates heterogeneous storage devices from mainstream vendors to maximize ROI and improve resource efficiency.
  • SmartThin: supports automatic capacity expansion, improves disk utilization, and allows on-demand purchase, reducing initial purchase cost.
  • SmartMigration: migrates LUN data without interrupting services and dynamically adjusts migration rate based on service load, ensuring smooth device replacement and system upgrade.
  • SmartErase: allows users to erase confidential data from storage media, preventing key information from being leaked.
  • Second-level RPO: provides the industry's most reliable data protection.


Flexible and Reliable

  • Industry-leading I/O scalability and flexibility: supports 8 Gbit/s Fibre Channel, 16 Gbit/s Fibre Channel, 1 Gbit/s iSCSI, 10 Gbit/s iSCSI (TOE), 10 Gbit/s FCoE, and 6 Gbit/s SAS ports.
  • Hot-swap design: provides hot-swappable controllers, fan modules, power modules, I/O modules, and disks, and supports I/O expansion without affecting services.
  • Highly reliable architecture: makes all components redundant to prevent single points of failure, and adopts technologies such as data coffer and disk health check to enhance system reliability.
  • Application optimization: collaborates with host agent software to implement application-level backup, disaster recovery, and disaster recovery verification, and supports mainstream application systems such as Oracle, DB2, Exchange Server, and SQL Server.
