"The most valuable features of the Lenovo ThinkSystem DE Series are the dual controllers, available installation documentation, and the option of multiple host bus adapter interfaces.""Lenovo ThinkSystem DE Series is quite an elementary box, no frills. It does not have all the functionality of the DM but it is acceptable, it does its task. It integrates pretty well.""The solution is very easy to set up.""We have been working with the solution for around a year and so far it has shown itself to be stable.""Lenovo ThinkSystem DE Series is simple to use""ThinkSystem's storage performs well, and the price per gigabyte is good, especially on SSD solutions.

Cons
"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.""We did experience a little latency with this solution.""The solution could improve by having better integration.""In the future release, Huawei OceanStor should improve on what they already have. It is a good solution.""I would like to see more iterations and direct integration with other solutions.""The administration should be simplified because there are a large number of options that make it too complicated, and the customers can get confused.""I would like to see the next generation all-flash, which could be combined.""Technical support could be more helpful."

More Huawei OceanStor Cons →

"The features are limited.""The difficult part comes when dealing with the host. You have to enable multi-pathing and other aspects that are needed for proper configuration. I don't know if there is room for a more hyper-conversion structure to work with, but this would be easier.""In the next release, I would like to see more functionality. But, again, it is an entry-level product.""It would be useful to have structured solutions replicated to other sites.""ThinkSystem could be better integrated with backup software like Commvault, Veritas, or Symantec.""Improvements can be made to the product's performance.""The solution could be more scalable, although it suits our present needs."
