OceanStor 2800 V3 storage system is a next-generation virtual storage solution for video surveillance, developed by Huawei Technologies Co. These products come with converged functionality and are built to meet small, medium and large scale storage requirements. At Milestone, we recently tested the OceanStor 2800 V3 storage and expansion chassis, which resulted in the storage system receiving the Milestone Certification for compatibility with the Milestone XProtect® open platform video management software.

During the testing phase, the OceanStor 2800 V3 storage platform easily supported the benchmark levels of performance, with the chosen hard disk configuration. The testing also determined that the solution could support up to a maximum of 400 cameras as compared to the calculator suggestion of 180 cameras. Additionally, in the virtualization scenario, the solutions can be used to support XProtect Recording Serverswhich record between 1-240 cameras at megapixel resolution when video motion detection is turned on, and 1-400 cameras when video motion detection is turned off.

Some of the key benefits of this integration are:


-        As there are multiple redundancy methods and storage control interfaces available, it offers a highly effective and scalable solution for mission critical applications

-        When tested in the maximum capacity, the solution showed no problems with frame loss, video latency and resulted in overall low CPU utilization

-        When configured as a storage server the 2800 V3 solution can provide additional value as a host for XProtect Recording Servers and as a high capacity storage database


Milestone’s integration with OceanStor 2800 V3 offers integrators and end users complete confidence in building robust systems that provide higher levels of performance.

What is a certification?

Milestone Solution Partners can submit their solutions, for certification, if the software integrations or IT infrastructure components are compatible with Milestone XProtect® video management software.

The Milestone Solution Certification for IT infrastructure components tests and evaluates third-party IT framework units that are compatible with XProtect VMS. The certification verifies that the server, storage and network components meet the performance benchmark required to support Milestone VMS, and measures the maximum performance available to customers.
