"The setup and the price are the most valuable and not the features related."
"This is a stable storage system."
"The most valuable feature is the flexibility in the rail, as it is hybrid storage."
"The most valuable feature of Huawei OceanStor is the hybrid applications."
"OceanStor is cheaper than Dell EMC, and its management interface is quite simple."
"One of the most valuable features is that it's very easy to use and configure. It used to be more difficult, but now it's almost flawless."
"Most of the features for the reduction in data compression are useful. It is also very easy to use and administer. Its performance is also good."
"The maintenance service and support from IBM is very good."
"One of the valuable features is the performance, it is one of the best in the market."
"The performance is very good and we use this product to enhance our core system."
"IBM FlashSystem has been stable in our operations."
"The most valuable feature is reliability."
"The power systems are very reliable if you are running 24/7 operations. For ongoing mission-critical applications, it's the best solution."
"The solution could improve by having better integration."
"I would like to see more iterations and direct integration with other solutions."
"I would like to see the next generation all-flash, which could be combined."
"We did experience a little latency with this solution."
"CFS integration is one area where OceanStor has some room for improvement. The CFS on OceanStor is dedicated, so it's not integrated with the existing active directory domain."
"The administration should be simplified because there are a large number of options that make it too complicated, and the customers can get confused."
"In the future release, Huawei OceanStor should improve on what they already have. It is a good solution."
"Technical support could be more helpful."
"It could be easier to implement."
"Cloud file sharing is an area that needs improvement."

"The interface could improve in IBM FlashSystem."
"We had issues when attempting to do a flash, we hope to resolve it soon."
"Sometimes the performance is effective but it gets resolved in the process."
"The support could improve by allowing you to speak to someone when you call rather than them calling you back. However, once we do have contact with one of their technicians they are excellent."
"The GUI for monitoring performance metrics could provide better visibility. For example, it doesn't let me segregate the IOPS per volume."
OceanStor Dorado V3 is the industry's first all-flash storage that puts NVMe into commercial use. It is specially designed for enterprises' mission-critical businesses, meeting the most-demanding performance and reliability requirements of databases, VDI, server virtualization, and SAP HANA.
