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

Pros
"We have been able to consolidate storage into Pavilion. Pavilions are our only SANs because it is a bring your own disk solution. When new drives come out, we are able to take out half of the drives in the system, put in new drives, move our VMs over to the new drives, take the other drives out, and populate those with new drives. Then, we are suddenly twice as dense as we were before. NVMe flash is only going to get denser and cheaper so we can make use of that every couple of years by just throwing newer disks into it at a fraction of the cost of a new SAN.""The high performance is very valuable, as well as the enterprise reliability features.""There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."

"The solution has improved our organization by speeding up our operations.""The most valuable feature is the availability.""We get a quick response in case any component defaults. We have seen the benefits mostly.""The solution is easy to scale as needed.""Excellent and efficient support, and the product is a good price.""Great value for money.""Generally stable with good technical support.""The most valuable feature is the flexibility in the rail, as it is hybrid storage."

Cons
"The rail system that Pavilion uses to mount up into a standard Dell or APC cabinet extends further back than normal rails, and they cover up the zero PDU slot. So, I don't like the rail system that comes with the device. That is my biggest complaint.""In our current configuration, we can only run the line controllers in high availability, active-standby mode, whereas we would like to see active-active implemented.""I would like to see the management layer improved."

"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.""The administration should be simplified because there are a large number of options that make it too complicated, and the customers can get confused."

More Huawei OceanStor Cons »

"The pricing could be cheaper and it should have documentation in more languages, specifically, Russian.""We need a center related to NetApp in Egypt so that we can deal with them directly.""NetApp could improve the speed of the rebuilding rate.""There could be better integration with some of our Cisco products.""This solution does not have any compression or deduplication.""Their problems are on the software and the controlling of the storage where they lack segmentation and federation.""The price of the All Flash solution is very high.""I would like to have the ability to replicate data between All Flash and other NetApp storage systems."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is hardware. They have a singular array that you can populate with your own disk, or you can buy the disks through them. For controllers, you pay for the components inside of the SAN, but there is only one chassis that they work with.""The licensing fees are very reasonable."

"Pricing is very fair.""Huawei OceanStor is priced very well but is a bit complicated."

More Huawei OceanStor Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing of this solution is competitive with other vendors here in Egypt.""The pricing is comparable with other competitors and similar in mid-range solutions, and for high range solutions, it would depend on our requirements or needs.""Adding more capacity will increase the cost.""This solution is not available to many users because the cost is very expensive.""NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays is an expensive product.""Most of my customers pay for the license on a yearly basis. It can be expensive depending on the capacity number.""They need to improve its pricing. The storage market is dying. So, they need to improve the price because it should reach all people. NetApp is one of the top ones, and they are charging a little bit of royalty as compared to other storage solutions."
