OceanStor N8500 usa la tecnología de múltiples nodos All Active Cluster con todos los nodos de buscadores en la misma agrupación. Esto permite que los nodos funcionen de forma concurrente en el procesamiento de las transacciones y para acceder a un solo archivo al mismo tiempo. Además, el sistema OceanStor N8500 es compatible con un total de hasta 256 nombres de espacios, y cada uno de ellos es capaz de incluir 1.000 millones de archivos como máximo, lo que significa que la capacidad de almacenamiento total es de unos 100.000 millones de archivos. La última versión del sistema OceanStor N8500 es compatible con un máximo de 24 nodos de buscador, cuya capacidad de escalada permite el crecimiento linear del rendimiento del sistema. El nuevo OceanStor N8500 con nodos de 24 buscadores toma el liderazgo en la industria en términos de resultados para hacer historia dentro de las pruebas de rendimiento SPECsfs2008, con un rendimiento general que supera los 3 millones de operaciones por segundo (OPS) y rendimiento de un solo nodo que llega a los 125.000 OPS.

El resultado de este test de comparación SPECsfs2008 indica que al trabajar dentro de un hospedaje Linux/UNIX en el que se permite el NFS Protocol, Huawei OceanStor N8500 con 24 nodos de buscador puede generar hasta 3.064.602 OPS, duplicando el rendimiento del récord logrado con anterioridad.

Shane Warden, responsable general de IMG Media House, explicó: "Lo que realmente nos ha impresionado ha sido la calidad de la tecnología, en combinación con la aproximación creativa de los ingenieros de Huawei. Hemos hablado con otros proveedores, y nos han indicado que lo que queríamos no podía conseguirse. Huawei no ha chocado contra los mismos muros que los demás – ha trabajado duro para conocer el campo de las emisiones y ha descubierto una solución que se desplegaba para nuestras necesidades".

Fan Ruiqi, director general de la línea de productos de almacenamiento de Huawei, remarcó: "Llega la era de los grandes datos.
