Pros
Huawei Dorado enabled us to put all data on flash, thus eliminating the need for tiering.

The best feature is consistently lower latency, even when IOPS crank up to over 75K. The product maintains submillisecond response time, which is incredible.The most valuable features are extremely low latency, high IOPS with VMware, inline deduplication and compression.The amount of data that I have moved to it from legacy storage has enabled us to retire units that are three or four times the physical size.The deduplication and compression rates are beyond impressive.I never have to worry about its performance or if it is the root cause of an issue.It has made working with storage as easy and simple as it should be.The GUI is very easy to use and intuitive.Non-disruptive upgrades: You can upgrade at anytime without worry.

Cons
The version of the Dorados which we use is not using NVMe.

I would like to see a Nagios monitoring plugin which watches the health and performance of the system. The only one available just checks volume capacity.I’d love to view the average, minimum and maximum performance in the reports (Analysis tab - Performance) but it is only graphics and you need to export data in CSV to find this information.Just some nit picky stuff, like allowing servers and volumes to be grouped. Therefore, it would easier to work with them in the GUI.I would like some form of QoS implemented. As a service provider, it would be beneficial to have it.I would like to see more detailed reporting on the data. However, it would be nice to know what are the exact VMs usage after deduplication and/or what that VMs actual latency and bandwidth is, outside of VMware.The internal garbage collection process has been fixed recently in some OS updates so it is more efficient but that could be just a little better.Had some issues with Purity not being entirely compatible with VMware ESXi.The number of Filesystems is limited, which it is not on the EMC VNX.

Pricing and Cost Advice
At that time (2013), competitive offers could only offer hybrid solutions in this price range or offered at lower than enterprise grade HW.

For pricing, you have to take into account their performance on deduplication and compression in a $/GB comparison.It is a more expensive solution, but it is worth it. You are getting what you paid for.The price was slightly higher than others, but competitive, if you consider all the other features that you get from it.There is always room for negotiation.We feel that the pricing is fair and the licensing process was easy for both.
