H3C ONEStor 3.0

H3C ONEStor 3.0

As the growth rate of digital information volumes is constantly increasing, new data storage technologies that can cope with the exponential growth of their volumes are in demand in all industries. Distributed storage systems allow file, block, and object storage systems to be located across multiple physical servers for increased availability, data backup, and disaster recovery purposes.

H3C’s ONEStor 3.0 distributed storage system software aggregates server hard drives into storage pools, offering unified block, file and object storage services for higher-end applications. It meets a variety of requirements and is suitable for a variety of data types such as structured, unstructured and semi-structured data, providing support for enterprise-class features such as snapshotting, thin configuration, remote replication and many more. The system provides users with flexible and reliable access to data in a rapidly changing business environment. However, it is built on a leading distributed architecture and features a very easy-to-maintain management platform. Full automation of operation and maintenance functions allows achieving almost linear growth in storage system performance, as well as significantly better reliability indicators without imposing high requirements on the qualifications of customer personnel. In addition, ONEStor 3.0 provides open APIs for standard protocols and the ability to integrate into H3C Cloud (H3C Cloud OS) and OpenStack-based cloud infrastructures.

H3C ONEStor 3.0

Product architecture

In a distributed storage system H3C ONEStor 3.0 data uses a fully distributed architecture, which includes a hardware platform, an operating system for a storage system, a distributed control cluster, basic services, additional services and other modules. This design is the basis for achieving high reliability, availability, performance and degree of automation.

H3C ONEStor 3.0 architecture

Linear scalability

The distributed architecture ensures that both storage and performance scale linearly as the number of nodes or disks increases, while the system can Easily scale up to several thousand nodes and EB-tier capacity to meet cloud business expansion needs.

Flexible cache tiering

The caching tier provides clients with improved I/O performance for a subset of the data stored in the underlying tier storage. ONEStor 3.0 not only allows for linear performance growth by adding nodes, but also supports the following deployment modes to best utilize storage resources on each node:

SSD+HDD.

Entirely on SSD.

Entirely to HDD.

In SSD+HDD deployment mode, disks can be configured as follows:

Hard disk drives (HDDs) are used as data drives, and SSD drives are used as read and write caching drives to speed up the corresponding operations.

SSDs and hard drives must be placed in different storage pools to create tiered storage.

The SSD+HDD deployment mode is used most often because it combines the high performance (in terms of IOPS) and throughput of SSDs with the high capacity and lower cost of hard drives.

Enterprise-class software-defined storage system with rich functionality

Replication data: Data replication ensures reliable storage. Clients can achieve their desired level of reliability by specifying the number of replicas in the replication reservation policy. ONEStor 3.0 will automatically distribute replicas in the cluster depending on the settings to achieve maximum reliability. Data will not be lost as long as there is at least one replica available.

Noise Tolerant coding:support for noise-resistant coding using the K+M scheme within various redundancy schemes, which effectively reduces the total cost of ownership. For example, when using noise-resistant coding in a 4+1 scheme, the data will remain available if only one of the servers fails or is disconnected, and the system will be able to recover the lost data using the original data and the check bit.

Fast recovery data: ONEStor 3.0 supports parallel and fast data processing and restructuring. If some nodes or disks fail, the system automatically rebuilds data in other locations, and data recovery time can be less than 30 minutes per terabyte.

< b>Powerful tools provision Consistency data: ONEStor 3.0 ensures that all data replicas are absolutely identical, ensuring maximum data consistency. Data write operations are not considered complete until all replicas have successfully written to disk, meaning the reliability of user data has the highest priority.

Protection Data: The system provides a wide range of capabilities for data protection and disaster recovery, such as: snapshots, volume copies, quality of service (QOS), remote replication, fault domains, protection domains, etc.

Automated operations and maintenance

Automated and rapid deployment of storage clusters, including batch deployment, single node growth or reduction, single disk growth or reduction, etc.< /p>

The automatic monitoring and notification system allows you to quickly identify and resolve problems when failures occur, increasing the efficiency of operation and maintenance.

Comprehensive monitoring capabilities provide complete performance and health tracking functionality from physical servers to storage pools, including monitoring of processors, memory, network cards, read and write operations per second, read and write throughput , latency and state of individual components.

Flexible deployment and configuration of nodes to adapt to hardware capabilities to maximize reuse of available hardware resources.

Easy fault domain isolation and flexible data storage locations to improve business application reliability. Supports three-level fault domains for nodes, cabinets and data centers and automatically creates a clustered topology of devices.

The system has self-healing capabilities and supports automatic data rebalancing in case of failure failure, adding or removing a storage node or disk.

Advanced AI-based algorithms can predict hard drive failures. When the system detects a possible hard drive failure, the system automatically generates an early warning so that the administrator can replace the drive in advance.

Full log management capabilities. The administrator has the ability to configure the log export period. The log displays information on cluster software and hardware settings, the status of the network, information about current health monitoring, changes in the state of the storage pool, records of user actions, etc.

Full auditing capabilities to ensure system security. Audit data covers all records of system operation, while access to the storage system console can be encrypted for security purposes using SSL.

Convenient web portal management contains a visual representation of the cluster topology, information about the equipment (data center, rack, server, network card, etc.), abnormal component behavior events, monitoring history, etc.
