Inspur AS5600G2/AS5800G2 Inspur AS5600/5800G2 mid-end converged active storage system (hereinafter referred to as G2 mid-range active storage) is a storage system targeted at medium and large enterprises for structured and unstructured data applications. With its storage operating system built specifically for cloud computing and big data environments, rich software features, and leading industry hardware platforms, it meets the needs of data storage, disaster recovery, dual-active and backup in applications such as large and medium-sized databases OLTP/OLAP, virtualization and file sharing. Inspur G2 mid-range active storage system has reached the highest level in products of the same grade in the industry in terms of performance, function, reliability and ease of use. It is widely used in government, finance, communications, energy, media, medical, education, SMB and other sectors.

Product Overview:


Unified storage

  ​Unified SAN+NAS: provide Block and File services in the same storage system to simplify data center architecture, reduce O&M costs and flexibly respond to different business needs.

  Unification of multiple protocols: support multiple protocols such as iSCSI, FC, NFS, CIFS, HTTP, FTP, which can meet the storage requirement of databases, file sharing, cloud computing and other applications.


  Active-Active architecture: Inspur G2 mid-range active storage system adopts industry-leading Active-Active storage architecture, with its AS5600/5800G2 controller adopting an hardware architecture which separates disk from controller. It realizes load balancing among controller modules (CM), eliminates performance bottlenecks of the controller, improves availability of the system and ensures service continuity.

  Scale-Out architecture: Inspur G2 mid-range active storage system supports on-line scale out and is able to support up to 16 CMs and TB-level cache, which enables a linear growth in customer storage resources and meets the changing business needs of customers.

  Storage HA: Inspur G2 mid-range active storage system adopts a design with full redundant architecture, fully module, redundant cache, redundant PSU fan and Active-Active CM. There are no single point failure with its major components. It supports on-line hardware capacity expansion, on-line firmware upgrades, on-line system maintenance, and data protection for abnormal power-down.

  High extensibility: AS5600/AS580G2 support up to 1196/1840 hard drives respectively and 32/64/128/256GB cache for a single controller. It can scale out to 16 controllers and provide petabytes of mass storage space.


  Intelligent provisioning: the allocation of storage resources is no longer limited by storage space; instead, the resources are allocated on demand, which reduces initial cost and greatly improves utilization of storage resource.

  Intelligent second level cache: support SSD second level cache, meet the performance request on various business, improve overall storage performance and eliminate performance bottlenecks in complex applications.

  Intelligent local copy:Intelligent local copy includes three kinds of local data protection, intelligent clone, intelligent snapshot, intelligent backup, which is able to meet demand on testing, development, analysis and backup, while effectively saving storage space and reducing investment costs.

  Intelligent volume mirror: create a mirror for the volume mapped to the host and save two identical copies of data in two storage pools respectively, so that application IO access will not be interrupted when any copy of the data is corrupt.

  Intelligent tiers: hot data can be migrated online between different storage media, so as to achieve the best balance between storage cost and performance, and increase ROI for customers.

  Intelligent QoS: according to different requirements of different applications for IO performance, manage read and write performance of volume, and make distribution on demand to meet the performance requirements of different applications.

  Intelligent on line compression: industry leading function of real-time on line hardware compression. Advanced compression algorithm brings a higher compression ratio, and imposes no impact on storage performance.

  Intelligent heterogeneous virtualization: take over the third-party storage resources through its own storage heterogeneous virtualization technology to form a unified virtual resource pool, and support data protection, data migration and other services between different storages.

  Intelligent disaster tolerance replication: provide three types of disaster tolerance replication, which are synchronous replication, asynchronous replication and asynchronous periodic replication; Protect business continuity, and offer customers a solution with three centers in two sites.

  Intelligent InMetro: Inspur G2 active storage system provides active-active solution which achieves the objective of RTO=0 and RPO=0, zero data loss, zero service interruption, so as to guarantee the continuity of customer business.

  Intelligent cloud backup:Industry-leading cloud backup technology eliminates the need to purchase backup software for data-to-cloud backup, reducing backup complexity and effectively protecting customers' data.

  Intelligent management software: Inspur G2 active storage system provides unified Intelligent management software, one set of which is able to manage the whole set of G2 storage platform. The build-in Intelligent maintenance and management suite reduces O&M cost and improves O&M efficiency.

Application scheme

  For different types of customer business and performance needs

  Scheme overview: with the advent of new IT patterns, there has also been a proliferation of stored data types (blocks, files). Meanwhile, different businesses have different needs for performance. InspurAS5600 G2/AS5800 G2 is a unified storage in a real sense that supports multiple protocols and host interfaces. It provides a rich set of software functions that meet different needs of customers.

  Customer value: Inspur AS5600 G2/AS5800 G2 storage unifies SAN and NAS without NAS gateway, with rich software features providing customers with dual benefits of performance and cost ,so as to reduce initial cost investment and protect customers' TCO.

  Active-active storage solution

  Scheme overview: Today's key businesses demand more and more for performance and pose challenges to business continuity. Inspur AS5600 G2/AS5800 G2 adopts mature active-active technology to ensure business continuity and high availability of applications. When disaster occurs to any of these storage platforms, a sophisticated arbitration mechanism and switching mechanism will be adopted so that another storage platform continues to provide continuous business access.

  Customer value: Inspur AS5600 G2/AS5800 G2 active-active storage solution is featured by reliability, security, mature technology, efficiency and automatic switching while no virtualized gateway is needed At the same time, it can be used with different host systems to achieve high availability between different data centers, and provide continuity of business access (RPO = 0, RTO = 0).
