"The most valuable feature of this solution is the overall simplicity."
"The installation and management are very easy."
"This is a stable product that we can use for DR in production."
"The most valuable features are the five chips architecture and the purpose-built NVMe hard disk drive. Additionally, the IOPS feature is good."
"The solution is scalable."
"Most of the features which all enterprises storages solutions have are available in Huawei OceanStor Dorado."
"I've been satisfied with the level of attention I'm given when I reach out to technical support."
"The majority of our customers find this solution simple to use."
"There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."
"The high performance is very valuable, as well as the enterprise reliability features."
"We have been able to consolidate storage into Pavilion. Pavilions are our only SANs because it is a bring your own disk solution. When new drives come out, we are able to take out half of the drives in the system, put in new drives, move our VMs over to the new drives, take the other drives out, and populate those with new drives. Then, we are suddenly twice as dense as we were before. NVMe flash is only going to get denser and cheaper so we can make use of that every couple of years by just throwing newer disks into it at a fraction of the cost of a new SAN."
"Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve by having a multi-tier cloud option and additional protocols"
"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."
"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."
"This solution can improve by providing easier migrations and better Metro features."
"I would really like to see Heterogeneous Storage Virtualization in a future release."
"If they implement a backup solution directly into the OceanStor then it will be a valuable feature."
"Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve the integration, there have been some compatibility issues with some operating system functions."
"The user interface of Huawei OceanStor Dorado could be more user-friendly. Other solutions, such as EMC, have a better user interface."
"I would like to see the management layer improved."
"In our current configuration, we can only run the line controllers in high availability, active-standby mode, whereas we would like to see active-active implemented."
"The rail system that Pavilion uses to mount up into a standard Dell or APC cabinet extends further back than normal rails, and they cover up the zero PDU slot. So, I don't like the rail system that comes with the device. That is my biggest complaint."
Huawei's OceanStor Dorado V3 all-flash storage is the ideal choice for enterprises' mission-critical business. It is the industry's first commercial use of NVMe all-flash storage, and it delivers high-performing, reliable, and efficient storage services.
