"The most valuable feature of Huawei OceanStor is the hybrid applications."
"The pricing is very reasonable."
"I would say in terms of architecture and in terms of functionality, the product is quite good."
"SolidFire provides seamless performance across your storage system when you need to scale up. Other storage systems do not do that."
"It's got full API functionality and the performance is pretty steady."
"We did experience a little latency with this solution."
"The solution could improve by having better integration."
"The administration should be simplified because there are a large number of options that make it too complicated, and the customers can get confused."
"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."
"Technical support could be more helpful."
"Could have a more stable, lighter Metro and better logging system."
"I would like to see the next generation all-flash, which could be combined."
"In the future release, Huawei OceanStor should improve on what they already have. It is a good solution."
"SolidFire should start from two nodes instead of the four nodes. That's the only thing. In a lot of solutions, we have to use four nodes, that's the better thing. But as a starting point, two is better. That's why their starting point is expensive."
"You don't have business continuity with SolidFire. I think it could be a nice feature to have in the future."
"The upgrade process could be better."
