Converged Computing and Storage

Converged Computing and Storage

The OceanStor 2800 V3 storage system seamlessly integrates the computing layer with the storage layer, without the need to construct two independent systems to deliver storage and computing functions.

Traditional IT services such as video surveillance and database services work on a resource pool-based architecture, in which the computing layer and storage layer are independent from each other. Data is shared and transmitted between the two layers using network transmission protocols after the two layers have been physically connected. The cost of this architecture is high because devices must be purchased and deployed for the computing layer and storage layer separately. Also, maintenance is difficult because the two layers must be maintained separately. As a result, the data transmission rate and reliability between the two layers cannot be guaranteed.

Based on the innovative design principle of converged IT, the OceanStor 2800 V3 storage system integrates the computing layer and the storage layer into one system and has the following advantages:

  • Unified resource allocation: Resources can be flexibly allocated among VMs based on service requirements, ensuring performance of critical services.
  • Internal Efficient Data transmission: Data is transmitted between the computing layer and storage layer through direct internal links, remarkably improving performance and reliability.
  • Efficient resource isolation: The resources of different services are isolated, preventing services from affecting each other.
  • Easy maintenance: Provides easy-to-use maintenance. All configurations can be implemented based on site requirements.
