Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The product is very reliable. We haven't had any major issues with the product since we bought it.""The solution is stable and everything is taken care of through the Huawei support center. They ensure everything is running smoothly. It's been very good.""The pricing of the solution is excellent. It's one of the main reasons a customer chooses Huawei. It's much, much better than VMware."

"The scalability is great, because it can scale independently.""It's an all-flash solution. NetApp guarantees 3-to-1 or more than 3-to-1. It has guaranteed performance, like 15K IOPS per node.""We like SnapMirror and we've been using it for many years. We also like the object storage tools, as well as cloud sync for customers wanting to integrate between the cloud and local.""It allows me to move a VM set and require extra performance. I can easily move them onto it and have it just run.""When you are doing lifecycles for your equipment, you can just swap out pieces of equipment. We used to do one big iron to another big iron, and that's a major migration hassle. Whereas, with this environment, you can go with small nodes, one at a time, and do a refresh.""It is easy to set up, and you don't have to do much work to get it to do what it needs to do.""It has reduced our hypervisor footprint by around 20%.""The NetApp Deployment Engine that comes with it makes the actual deployment and usage very easy. That's our primary focus and it's hyper-converged. That's something that we want to use as well."

Cons
"The solution currently does not have cloud integration.""t would be helpful if the solution was able to collaborate or integrate with other well-known monitoring tools. Right now, you have to work hard to get it configured. It would be a good selling point for them if they could open up their solution to more integrations.""Technical support needs improvement. There's a lot of language barriers."

"In the next version I would like to see bigger GPU types and insurance for including transparency.""The price should be lowered. It's a little expensive.""It would be great if they took something like kernel storage and integrated straight into the NetApp as well.""Because I like block mode, I'd like to see SAN connectivity. I would like to be able to easily put it into my current environment.""There have been some drive type of issues where we have to apply a new code level. Storage nodes kick certain drives until they act as though they have failed when really they haven't. You just have to reinsert them, then they go on about their happy way. It's sort of a bug.""I would like to see a better upgrade process, like the one that ONTAP has.""HCI has not enabled us to consolidate workloads or break down silos and has not increased application performance. It has also not resulted in more efficient use of compute resources.""The deployment process has room for improvement. I would like for it to be a cookie-cutter deployment."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"All the licenses are included when you buy the program.""You still have to pay for the licensing for VMware and Red Hat licenses separately. It's not all inclusive at this point.""This solution reduced our maintenance costs. We were going to have to pay one to two million dollars to put in compute nodes. We are avoiding those costs.""Licenses run on a yearly basis, and there aren't any additional fees other than the standard licensing fee.""The licensing fees are renewed annually."

Top Answer: The solution is less expensive than most competitors, including Cisco.
Top Answer: The stability is poor as compared to VMware. It's a big issue for the customers as well. In our last two to three deployments we were having some issues with the hardware side. Huawei always offers… more »
