Huawei OceanStorTM VIS6000T virtual intelligent storage system is a virtual storage product. It satisfies customers requirements for heterogeneous storage consolidation and hierarchical disaster recovery.


Powerful Virtualization Capability

Resource consolidation across heterogeneous disk arrays

Seamless integration of FC and IP networks

  • The VIS6000T provides FC , iSCSI and 10GE iSCSI connectivity.

Perfect Data Protection Capability


  • Supporting disaster recovery (DR) between heterogeneous disk arrays through mirroring, the VIS6000T guarantees business continuity and provides highly reliable DR solutions.


  • Virtual and full-sized instant snapshots protect point-in-time data against potential software disasters.


  • Remote DR policies, enable the user to implement unified deployment and management of multi-service DR applications at different levels. The I/O-specific data replication technology eliminates data loss.

Advanced Architecture Design

High performance

  • The VIS6000T allows a maximum of eight nodes to work in active-active mode.
  • The performance increases linearly with the number of nodes.

Excellent reliability

  • Full hardware redundancy eliminates the impact of single points of failure and ensures 7 x 24 service running.
  • The advanced active-active cluster technology realizes multipath load balancing and failover and frees the system from interruptions.

Easy System Management

Device management

  • The network management system monitors the device running state in real time, and the full-dimensional fault diagnosis mechanism greatly simplifies the management.

Resource management

  • Friendly graphical user interfaces simplify planning and scheduling of heterogeneous storage resources, level up the management efficiency, and optimize resource utilization.

DR management

  • The customizable DR solution provides multiple DR management services, such as DR tests, drilling, maintenance, and evaluation.
