We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is easy to use, deploy, communicate and manage this solution.""The most valuable feature of Huawei OceanStor is the hybrid applications.""The support is excellent.""Huawei OceanStor is stable.""The setup and the price are the most valuable and not the features related.""OceanStor is cheaper than Dell EMC, and its management interface is quite simple.""The pricing is very reasonable.""This is a stable storage system."

"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."

Cons
"Technical support could be more helpful.""In the future release, Huawei OceanStor should improve on what they already have. It is a good solution.""I would like to see the next generation all-flash, which could be combined.""The security could be a bit more robust.""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 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 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."

  • "This is hardware. They have a singular array that you can populate with your own disk, or you can buy the disks through them. For controllers, you pay for the components inside of the SAN, but there is only one chassis that they work with."
  • "The licensing fees are very reasonable."
