CHINA: Huawei Symantec announced that its Oceanspace T-series reported excellent SPC Benchmark 1 (SPC-1) performance, as defined by the Storage Performance Council, a vendor-neutral standards body focused on the storage industry.
The SPC provides a source of comparative storage performance information that is objective, relevant, and verifiable. SPC-1 consists of a single workload designed to demonstrate the performance of a storage subsystem while performing the typical functions of business critical applications. Those applications are characterized by predominately random I/O operations and require both queries as well as update operations. Examples of those types of applications include OLTP, database operations, and mail server implementations.
The Oceanspace S6800T reported 150,061.17 SPC IOPS  and a SPC-1 Price-Performance of only $3.08 per SPC-1 IOPS. In addition to demonstrating excellent performance with its SPC-1 Result, the Oceanspace S6800T also employs a modular design, supports hot swap, automatic failover, and load balancing, which guarantees high performance and high reliability.
As a midrange SAN product, Oceanspace S5600T reported 102,471.66 SPC IOPS  with a SPC-1 Price-Performance of $2.73 per SPC-1 IOPS making it a cost-effective midrange storage system.
The SPC-1 Price-Performance reported for the Oceanspace S6800T and S5600T make both Huawei Symantec solutions ideal platforms for enterprises that engage in online transactions, database operations, and mail server implementations. The two SPC-1 Results provide validation that end-users will be provided fast access to their data, ensuring time and cost savings.
Based on its converged and easy-to-manage storage solutions, Huawei Symantec has been continually focused on customer-centric innovations. The recently launched storage systems of the Oceanspace T-series have flexible structures and enable a high level of performance by enabling the rapid flow of data in the system. At the same time, Oceanspace T-series products also provide reliability and scalability while also supporting FC, iSCSI, and hot-plugging. Oceanspace T-series products also have advanced features such as automatic configuration optimization and LUN dynamic propagation which perfectly meet the demands of key business areas including online trade, large database processing, and high-performance computing.
"The Huawei Symantec Oceanspace T-series is one of our flagship storage series, and it enables higher productivity, better efficiency, and a lower total cost of ownership," said Fan Ruiqi, president of Huawei Symantec storage product line. "In addition to boasting advanced storage features such as high density, it also offers industry-leading enhanced data protection, using approaches such as snapshot and synchronous mirroring. The SPC-1 performance of the S5000T series is an affirmation of the R&D investment that Huawei Symantec has made across its entire product line."
