"No queuing and high ops, speed, and performance."
"It should have easy connectivity with the AIX, however, I've found that with AIX, it has some issues and due to this, we need to remove the exact fiber card sometimes and then plug it in again so that it can connect with the AIX systems."
"Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve by having a multi-tier cloud option and additional protocols"
"The data compression and deduplication ratio of Huawei OceanStor Dorado is not as good as other solutions, such as EMC and Pure Storage. It is important when looking at capacity effectiveness."
"Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve the integration, there have been some compatibility issues with some operating system functions."
"This solution can improve by providing easier migrations and better Metro features."
"The product could always be faster."
"I would really like to see Heterogeneous Storage Virtualization in a future release."

"The data reduction pool feature sucks and is not recommended for use with heavy workloads."
"The interface of this solution could be improved."
"There could be some extra features added."
"The technical support in my region is satisfactory but it could improve. Support is very important for customers and downtime is very critical for us. We would like onsite or complete technical support which can help us to minimize our downtime or if problems occur."
"We had issues when attempting to do a flash, we hope to resolve it soon."
"The customer's expectations are what they get on the cloud, they're expecting even in the on-premises deployments, going forward."
"The price is very costly."
"The pricing could be improved, but I think it's getting better and better with each version. IBM needs to implement NAS storage again, as this is a big flaw. Dell EMC is very good at this and if you compared them based on NAS storage, Dell EMC would win right away. IBM's solution for NAS storage is very complicated. We don't have a storage box that provides file sharing from itself, we have to put software on it and go through a whole complicated process. It should be simplified."
