OceanspaceTM S5000 Series

Huawei Symantec OceanspaceTM S5000 series is the first end-to-end

FC-based storage product with independent intellectual property rights in
China and dedicated to mid-range and high-end storage markets. The
outstanding features such as high density, FC and iSCSI connectivity,
modular interfaces, and multi-level data protection mechanism enable the
S5000 series to meet the requirements of large databases, high performance
computing, online transaction processing (OLTP), centralized storage, data
backup, disaster recovery, and data migration, and ensure customers' data

OceanspaceTM S5000 integrity and business continuity.
