Cons
"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.

Other solutions, such as EMC, have a better user interface.""There are some limitations to this product because they do not have unified storage.""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 product could always be faster.""Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve the integration, there have been some compatibility issues with some operating system functions.""If they implement a backup solution directly into the OceanStor then it will be a valuable feature."

"There is some room for new features related to authentication and integration with Kubernetes, and other solution using S3 Bucket.""It usually comes down to just what you hit and the value you're getting when you spend the money and license the products. I would always go, "If you want to make things better, lower your price and make your licensing simpler." There's always an opportunity around that.""I would like to see the licensing fees improved as well as the price per terabytes.""The solution is expensive.""The feature that we're waiting on is better integration with the cell services.""I want efficiency. FlashBlade doesn't have efficiency now.""Compared to, for example, Hitachi NAS, the solution is not mature at all. It's just in its infancy as far as technology goes.""It would be beneficial if the layer could support the S3 protocol and be container ready in the next release."
