Huawei OceanStor Dorado Review

A solution with a simple GUI that's fast and offers very good technical support

What is most valuable?

The solution is very fast, but IBM is winning at the right speed. The GUI is very simple, however, in comparison to IBM. The interface is nice and simple, as are the guides.

What needs improvement?

The speeds of the disks themselves need to be faster. The disks are not flash. When we opened our hard drive from the inclusion, I saw a converter, and it's not entirely flash.

It would be helpful in the future if they could create another solution that can manage both Huawei and non-Huawei boxes.

For how long have I used the solution?

We're currently testing the solution. It's rather new for us.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I can't speak to its stability. We haven't run any stability tests yet.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is very responsive. We have many products from Huawei. If something happens, we open a ticket and they assist.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. Deployment takes about a day.

What about the implementation team?

We had a consultant assist in the implementation. We just provided the help connecting the cable and installing the rack.

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

I don't handle pricing, but I do believe it is less expensive than IBM.

What other advice do I have?

We use a hybrid deployment model, and we're currently testing the solution.

I'd rate the solution 8.5 out of ten.
