More Huawei OceanStor 9000 Pros »

"This solution provides us with easy management and great vendor support.""The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror.""The most important features are SnapVault, Snapshots, and SnapMirror.""For us, the greatest aspect of the solution is the fact that it just runs. It is amazingly resilient. That's very important to us, because we are basically, with some exceptions, have a 24/7 operation.""The most valuable feature is SnapMirror.""Data consolidation and visualization.""You can use different protocols at the same time. Monitoring is also very easy in NetApp FAS Series. There is a free tool for monitoring.""The most valuable features are the NAS features and NetApp's excellent support."

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

More Huawei OceanStor 9000 Cons »

"Dedicated storage efficiency accelerators could improve the overall performance of the system.""Currently, the newest release is not HCI friendly.""Technical support needs to be improved, as there are no longer partners in our country.""The one aspect of the solution that's negative for us is also more unique to us due to the fact that we did a MetroCluster. The tiebreaker piece that does the monitoring of the two different locations, and determines if one is not talking to the network normally (or if it's truly down) is a little difficult. It feels like it was not designed from the beginning to fit well into the other pieces. It feels like it was thrown in at the last minute and it is not smooth.""If our customer needs a high-performance storage solution then we don't recommend this product.""The solution could do more than just data.""Its licensing cost can be improved.""There is no NetApp infrastructure set up here in Greece."

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

More Huawei OceanStor 9000 Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I've sold arrays for as little $20,000 USD and as high as $300,000 USD.""It is expensive.""I don't recall the price, but in general, pricing can always be better."
