More Huawei OceanStor 9000 Pros »

"The initial setup was really straightforward. It was not complex. Deployment took one month, due to the data migration duration.""The performance of the All-Flash System is very good. There is more enhanced performance and data production in the solution, which I appreciate.""Stability-wise, this solution is fine.""The feature I find most valuable, is the deduplication, because the nature of the data that we are using in our current environment, has a lot of replicated data.""We are a 100% satisfied with the stability of the solution.""The most valuable features are deduplication and compression.""The ability to create LUNs and modify them are the most valuable features of this solution.""The most valuable features are deduplication and compression, which together, enable you to have more space."

Cons
"The call charges and the management cost should be more friendly. They can also include monitoring and management."

More Huawei OceanStor 9000 Cons »

"The solution is not able to replicate data in one-to-many scenario.""The solution is not easy to implement. It takes a lot of time to study the product and it's a little complicated in general.""This solution needs a management console where we are alerted to issues and can report them, or escalate them through email or another method.""I would like to see an improvement in the handling of large amounts of rights.""I think the only thing the developers can look at, is that it is limited to 25 gigabytes currently. In the next release they might want to increase that.""The ease of installation should be improved. We had issues with the configuration model.""Enterprise data storage needs improvement. They should create a feature for data and file storage.""The security features can be improved such that the encryption does not affect performance in any way."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is cheaper than other solutions."

More Huawei OceanStor 9000 Pricing and Cost Advice »

"For a yearly license, it is about $100,000. There are no additional costs. The entire system is included.""The integration is already included in the license cost of IBM FlashSystem. The integration is very easy. You get the IBM storage core with all software, firmware, and upgrades. EMC provides the features in the box, but they are not free for customers. There is a licensing cost for features. We have yearly licensing, but IBM has also provided a new option where you pay as you go. They provide a big box, and I pay, for example, for 10 terabytes. If I exceed 10 terabytes, IBM will charge for the new storage after 10 terabytes. It is a good opportunity in the market for using the storage as a cloud and paying as you go.""They've been much more aggressive in the last five, six years than they were before that.""This is an expensive product and if the price were reduced it would be better.""Among IBM, Dell EMC, and Pure Storage, IBM is the cheapest. The price is also based on our location, the size of our entity, and our regular annual purchases from them. We are a very big IBM customer, so we normally get very high discounts. We are not a big customer of Pure Storage. We don't buy that much from Pure Storage per year. Everything is included in the price. There is no extra license for different functions.""Its price is very good."
