We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The initial setup was really straightforward and easy.""The technical support is good.""There's a zone for each server and services in the storage.""It has good integration with HPE Primera. They have smart zoning in which the administration is very easy. You don't have to do anything. Zoning and other things are done automatically if you just enable the smart zoning. That's one very good thing in HP."

"The velocity of the process is the most valuable feature.""They have the ability, since they have a very big R&D team, to create an upgrade for any feature or patch very easily.""The HTTP features for security are very good. We use all of the regular features.""Huawei Ethernet switches are easy to use and can be managed using either the GUI or via the command-line.""The most valuable feature is the audit systems.

"Integration could be improved. The price could also be lower.""The interoperability of the devices, in general, on the Huawei switches is not good and is known to be not good. Maybe they can improve this a bit.""The GUI could be improved. It could be much more adaptable.""One of the problems with Huawei is that when you receive a product quote from one of the vendors, you cannot get prices from the other ones because they register your request with Huawei.""In the next release, I would like to see an increase in the performance of DDoS protection systems against all kinds of attack packets.""There needs to be more documentation. If they opened up a bit and shared more information and maybe allowed for YouTube videos about their products and how to work them, it would benefit the users quite a bit.""The availability and the speed of the firmware updates are the only things wrong with Huawei. There are some vulnerabilities on the hardware.""The technical support is a bit difficult to work with if you don't speak Mandarin."
