Huawei OceanStor comes 1st in IO500 ranking



Huawei OceanStor IO500

Huawei OceanStor Pacific storage ranks first in the world in the IO500 list of the most authoritative international storage performance.

IO500 is the most influential world-class storage ranking in the HPC (high-performance computing) field. It mainly evaluates and ranks storage system performance, and comprehensively examines bandwidth performance (GiB/s) and metadata performance (kIOP/s) Two large parts.

Among them, the 10-node list unifies the computing scale and limits the computing nodes for benchmark performance tests to 10, which can more comprehensively and accurately reflect the actual performance of storage in daily applications, and has attracted the attention of customers in the global HPC field.

Huawei OceanStor:

In the performance test, Huawei OceanStor Pacific distributed storage delivered overall bandwidth reached 2400 GiB/s and 7.7 million kIOP/s metadata performance. This happened through simulating different I/O application models, after 12 harsh scenario tests.

This achievement to the top of the IO500 list marks another milestone in the industry in terms of its technological achievements. Also, it also demonstrates the large-scale commercial maturity in HPC scenarios such as university scientific research, gene sequencing, meteorology, and oceanography.

That’s how Huawei OceanStor topped the IO500 list.
