Huawei OceanStor Dorado Review
Enabled us to put all data on flash, thus eliminating the need for tiering


What is our primary use case?

Used as the primary storage for Oracle DBs serving our customers on the Internet self-service portal.

How has it helped my organization?

Guaranteed low latency for random read and write iOS with excellent stability at a competitive price or performance level.

What is most valuable?

Huawei Dorado enabled us to put all data on flash, thus eliminating the need for tiering. 

What needs improvement?

The version of the Dorados which we use is not using NVMe. However, the current generation is using the faster NVMe technology, thus lowering latency and increasing throughput.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

At that time (2013), competitive offers could only offer hybrid solutions in this price range or offered at lower than enterprise grade HW.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
