Product Details

Huawei VIS6000 series is a virtual intelligent storage system for heterogeneous storage integration and hierarchical disaster recovery. As a secure and open storage system with high performance and robust reliability,the Huawei VIS6000 provides unified management, data migration, and multi-level data protection for heterogeneous environments.


  • Powerful Virtualization Capability
  • Integration of heterogeneous storage arrays
    The virtualized network layer integrates storage arrays of various brands, models, or architectures into a unified storage resource pool. In this way, the storage resources of the Huawei VIS6000 are provisioned in a logical way to users.
  • Seamless convergence of FC SAN and IP SAN
    The Huawei VIS6000 provides FC and iSCSI ports for connections with hosts and FC/IP SAN storage arrays.
  • On-demand resource provisioning
    Applications can be offered with a larger amount of storage than is physically available. In this way, the Huawei VIS6000 improves storage utilization, streamlines resource allocation, and ultimately decreases the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Comprehensive Data Protection

  • Snapshot
    Fulfils users requirements on data backup, data sample analysis, and software error rectification with the snapshot technologies such as space-optimized instant snapshot, full-sized instant snapshot, and third-mirror break-off snapshot.
  • Mirroring
    Ensures business continuity and maintains a robust reliability with mirroring across heterogeneous storage arrays.
  • Replication
    Enables unified and multi-level disaster recovery for multiple applications with the various replication policies such as synchronous replication, asynchronous replication, and periodic replication. The granular I/O-specific replication realizes zero data loss.

Advanced System Architecture

  • High performance
    UP to eight nodes, each providing 12 ports; linear performance growth with the number of nodes.
  • Robust reliability
    Fully redundant hardware to prevent single point of failure and ensure 7x24 service availability; active/active nodes to realize multipath load balancing and failover for zero application interruption.

Easy System Management

  • Device management
    Greatly simplifies the device management by monitoring the device running status in real time and adopting a comprehensive fault diagnosis mechanism.
  • Resource management
    Facilitates storage resource scheduling and improves resource utilization through a friendly graphical user interface (GUI).
  • Disaster recovery management
    Enables the test, drilling, maintenance, and appraisal of disaster recovery through a customizable disaster recovery solution.
