OceanStor VIS6600T

Huawei OceanStor VIS6600T virtual intelligent storage system is an industry-leading virtual storage product. It satisfies customers' requirements for heterogeneous storage consolidation and hierarchical disaster recovery. As a secure and open storage system with high reliability and performance, the VIS6600T provides unified management, data migration, and multi-level data protection for heterogeneous environments.

As an industry-leading product for storage virtualization, HUAWEI OceanStor VIS6600T (the VIS6600T) meets customer needs for heterogeneous storage integration, unified management of storage space, and multi-level disaster recovery. Specific functions to address these needs include resource consolidation, unified resource management, data migration, and multi-level data protection. The VIS6600T is built to provide you with an open storage system that features robust security, easy management, and high performance, and wide compatibility.

Powerful Storage Virtualization

  • Integration of Heterogeneous Storage Arrays
  • The VIS6600T provides heterogeneous storage virtualization based on the network layer, combining resources on different storage arrays into a uniform storage resource pool. Users can directly access and share storage space in the resource pool without the need to know what or where the resources come from.

  • Seamless Blending of Fibre Channel and IP Networks
  • Both Fibre Channel and iSCSI ports are provided on the VIS6600T,including the mainstream 10GE iSCSI port.

Rich Portfolio of Software

  • Mirroring
  • On the VIS6600T, two or more heterogeneous storage devices can establish mirroring relationship to maintain service continuity against a single device failure. This mirroring technology across heterogeneous storage arrays delivers high reliability for local services.

  • Snapshot
  • Virtual snapshots and full-sized snapshots occupying physical space are available to protect all data stored on heterogeneous storage devices at any point in time. In doing so, customers can avoid catastrophic damage caused by data loss.

  • Replication
  • The VIS6600T supports I/O-level remote replication that utilizes built-in replication software to implement cross-region disaster recovery for heterogeneous storage devices. Customers therefore can have a disaster recovery platform that protects multiple services at different levels and enables unified deployment and management and disaster recovery solutions.

Enterprise-Class Modular Design

  • Outstanding Performance
  • Engines in a cluster can be online expanded to beef up the overall service processing capability. The VIS6600T can be scaled up to eight nodes, and system performance increases linearly as the number of nodes grows.

  • Robust Reliability
  • The active-active clustering network enables load balancing and failover between paths. Apart from that, multi-node clustering, hotswappable I/O modules, and full hardware redundancy resign all contribute to the VIS6600T's robust system reliability. You can replace faulty components online to facilitate convenient maintenance and enjoy a reliable system to keep services running uninterrupted.

  • Flexible Scalability
  • The top-notch scale-out architecture allows you to advance overall system performance by online expanding controllers based on your demand.

Easy System Management

  • Device Management
  • Devices are monitored in real time with an all-around fault detection mechanism, greatly simplifying device management.

  • Resource Management
  • With only one set of software, you can manage storage devices from various vendors. The graphical-user interface (GUI)-based software enables intuitive resource planning and dispatching.

  • Disaster Recovery Management
  • The customized disaster recovery solutions deliver various services related to disaster recovery management, including testing, drill, maintenance, and evaluation.
