What is FlashLink?

Making it simple, FlashLink is a technology used by All Flash Huawei Storage Dorado. It combines different optimization technologies to make Dorado more faster and reliable. 

Below mentioned are the technologies used by FlashLink® to make Dorado Storage more efficient.


1. Intelligent Multi-Core Technology

It applies Core partitioning and core grouping, this makes full use of multiple cores of Huawei's chip, as a result it doubles CPU processing speed and reduces latency by 20%. (Performance is doubled & Latency is reduced by 20%).

2. Smart Disk DAE

It means Huawei's Kunpeng chip is not only deployed in controller, but it is also deployed in SSD enclosure, so SSD enclosure and controller work together to offload the rebuilding from controller. In result data rebuild time is decreased. (1 TB rebuild time is decreased from 10 hours to 15 minutes.)

3. AI Cache

It employs a deep learning AI algorithm which performs fast analysis, in-depth mining and cache pre-fetching for regular data I/O . So it improves read hit ratio by 50 % and batch application processing by 40%. (read hit ratio is improved by 50 % and batch application processing is improved by 40%)

4.Full Stripe Write

It aggregates multiple discrete data blocks into a continuous data block in cache. Then, data block is written to SSDs in sequence so it prevents multiple operations caused by small discrete data, reducing the cpu utilization and pressure on SSDs. This results in less write amplification. (less write amplification)

5. Hot and Cold Data Split

Multi streaming data separation technology automatically partitions different types of data in controller and SSDs. This reduces the amount of valid data transferred during garbage collection and keeping high and stable performance.

6. End to End IO Priority

It ensures that data read and write I/O keep the top priority, This eventually improves the application response time. (improved application response time)
