OceanStor 9000 networking
OceanStor 9000 separates the front-end and back-end networks and uses the front-end network for data exchange with customers, and the back-end network for data exchange among internal nodes. OceanStor 9000 supports the following typical networking modes: 1. 10GE front-end/back-end (recommended) 2. InfiniBand front-end/back-end (mainly for HPC scenarios) 3. 10GE front-end and InfiniBand back-end 4. GE front-end and 10GE back-end (for video surveillance and archiving scenarios)

Software architecture of OceanStor ReplicationDirector
      Web,Storage,Mobile,OceanStor V3 series,OceanStor T series Based on the B/S architecture, OceanStor ReplicationDirector (current major version: V100R003C10) provides disaster recovery management through the browser at the client. OceanStor ReplicationDirector consists of three subsystems: OceanStor ReplicationDirector Agent, OceanStor ReplicationDirector UI, and OceanStor ReplicationDirector. 1. OceanStor ReplicationDirector Agent Installed on a service host, OceanStor ReplicationDirector Agent is used to discover applications on hosts, maintain consistency of application data, and recover applications. It also transfers information about application systems to the OceanStor ReplicationDirector Server, helping system administrators manage and configure data protection and disaster recovery tasks. 2. OceanStor ReplicationDirector UI Installed on a disaster recovery management server, OceanStor ReplicationDirector UI is used to provide a GUI, where you can perform routine management, such as configuration, maintenance, and modification. 3. OceanStor ReplicationDirector Server Installed on a disaster recovery management server, OceanStor ReplicationDirector Server is used to control the disaster recovery service process, schedule disaster recovery policies, and manage disaster recovery resources and disaster recovery configuration data.
