Huawei Symantec Unleashes Cost-Cutting Storage Solution at Inaugural North America Partner Summit

Based on NAND Flash Architecture, the Huawei Symantec Dorado 2100 Helps SME to Enterprise Customers Achieve Lowest Cost-per-IOPS on the Market

CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2011) - Huawei Symantec Technologies Co. Ltd., a leading provider of network storage and security solutions, today unveiled the Huawei Symantec Dorado 2100 Storage Series during its first-ever North America Partner Summit. The Dorado 2100 provides customers with a high-performance, high-efficiency system designed to significantly reduce CAPEX and OPEX, particularly for companies challenged by compute-intensive environments. Built on ultra-quick NAND Flash Architecture, the Dorado 2100 solution helps data centers process inbound requests faster than traditional architectures, allowing customers to reduce data center management costs and increase overall efficiency.

"Most virtualized data centers today face a constant barrage of inbound requests, all asking the same questions, which takes a heavy toll on data center managers and drives up operating expenses," said Jane Li, General Manager of North America, Huawei Symantec. "By innovating at the core with NAND flash architecture, Huawei Symantec can help reverse these expenses, enabling customers to focus on growing, rather than hindering, their business by implementing a streamlined storage strategy."

Simple, Efficient, Stable

The Huawei Symantec Dorado 2100 is a flexible storage system that provides customers with the high performance IOPs, reliability and ease-of-use required to maximize efficiency in compute-heavy environments found in areas like financial services, online transactions, social networking and more. An expansion of Huawei Symantec's robust storage product line, the Dorado 2100 can scale up or down to deliver tailored business and technology benefits to a wide variety of customers, ranging from SMEs to large enterprises.

Simple - The Dorado 2100 is designed to easily fit into existing data center infrastructure, eliminating the headache that results from competing rip-and-replace offerings while protecting customers' investments in current environments.

Efficient - Its flash architecture foundation allows the Dorado 2100 to process requests with more efficient infrastructure than if it were built on a traditional disk. Additionally, in contrast to cumbersome solutions from competitors, the Dorado 2100 is small in size, helping customers to achieve a lower overall data footprint and take up less pricey real estate in the data center with less hardware.

Stable - Huawei Symantec developed the Dorado 2100 to provide customers with the longevity and reliability needed in fast-paced data centers. In contrast to competing vendors that offer only one controller, the Huawei Symantec Dorado 2100 has two controllers, significantly increasing reliability for its customers.
