According to the results of the SPC-1 test, a recognized independent standard for evaluating the performance of storage systems, Huawei Dorado 18000 V6 enterprise-class full-SSD storage set a new world “IOPS record” and confirmed its superiority in the global market in other technical parameters, including latency and price-performance ratio.
In October 2020, the Dorado 18000 V6 hi-end storage system took first place in the most authoritative industrial performance test — SPC-1. Breaking the mark of 21 million I / o operations per second, it broke the previous industry record: the solution, which is now in second place, has a maximum achieved indicator more than two times lower.
It should be noted that the highest performance of our All-Flash storage was maintained, including when working with data compaction algorithms (compression and compression), which serve to increase storage efficiency. In General, these processes can periodically reduce performance, but in the Dorado 18000 V6, they are optimized in such a way as to avoid such downturns or minimize them.
Our storage also showed impressive results in terms of cost — performance ratio: 2,914 yuan, or about $0.436, per 1 IOPS. The average system response time during the test was 0.286 MS, which is significantly better than the target for modern data storage systems (0.5 MS). In turn, the capacity utilization rate within the SPC-1 was fixed at 68.35% – higher than that of other products in the top 10 of the rating.
Storage Performance tests are regularly conducted by the Storage Performance Council, an independent organization that is not affiliated with vendors. During benchmarking, it is measured how much IOPS is capable of issuing storage under arbitrary I / o loads, when it is busy processing online transactions (OLTP) in real time. Thus, it is possible to assess how productive the solution is when servicing critical business applications: billing systems, Internet banking services, medical information systems, ERP platforms, etc.
These achievements were made possible, among other things, thanks to the innovative solutions used in the Dorado 18000 V6: Ascend 310 AI chips, end-to-end NVMe, a set of FlashLink technologies, SmartMatrix architecture, etc.
