Cons
"A while ago, they performed quite slowly.""Implementation needs to be improved.""I would like to see more frequent updates at a faster pace.""There needs to be compatibility with upgraded applications. We don't want the system to be upgraded, but not have backwards compatible to existing applications.""I would like to see aggregate level encryption in the next release. This is critical.""I would like them to roll in global monitoring instead of having to buy another product for it.""The initial setup was a little complex, because we weren't very knowledgeable in the NetApp at the time. We were using a third-party, and they didn't have a lot of technical individuals, so it took a while to get it out.""We'd like to see improvement in the time to retrieve from the Cloud, whether it's on-prem to cloud and whether it's public or private cloud."

"The lower model, the 3000, should have duplication. It doesn't right now. It's only from 5000 that this is offered, but it depends on the performance. It could be they don't offer it on lower models because the duplication is too much of a burden to the performance.""The cost of the solution could be better.""I don't think the solution is very scalable.""While the price is competitive, in the next release it would be better if they could reduce the fees.""Compellent comes in the form of a component that's not true of a unified storage platform.""The connection should be better integrated with the network to offer a better view of the system.""It's not very efficient anymore. There are better products out there.""The interface could be improved. It should have an application point of view."

"The management is not a good feature in all of Huawei products. It's not easy or simple. Huawei has some problems with management and handling storage information from one interface.""The deployment took a little longer.""The upgrading process needs improvement. Deploy it and notify the customers when new versions and stuff comes out. I don't think they're doing that well.""Huawei is not that cheap.""The technical support has been a let down for us. It's something the company has to work on. We haven't been satisfied with their level of service.""The user interface is not so user friendly.""Integration with mainstream solution technologies could be better.""Could have a more stable, lighter Metro and better logging system."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Always consider whether you can afford the solution.""Our total cost of ownership (TCO) has decreased by 40 percent.""I am able to store two times more data than what I'm purchasing, which affects the way funds are being utilized.""Disk level encryption is already in the solution, but it is very costly. Its pricing should come down.""From an application standpoint, we have seen a lot of return investment on the speeds and responsiveness of the actual storage.""The total cost, the pricing of it, has gone up quite a bit.""Our TCO decreased significantly because we were paying maintenance on nine different arrays throughout the country. We've condensed those down to three arrays, and our maintenance fees from the IBM product dropped by over a half million dollars a year, saving us $500,000 USD.""Our TCO has increased by 15 to 18 percent."
