Provides block, object, big data, and file storage and has a simple GUI-based management platform

What is our primary use case?

I am a solutions architect. I help people define the solutions that will work best for them. Huawei FusionStorage is software-defined storage. Mostly we propose the hardware solutions to our customers. FusionStorage is a software solution for user storage needs. Generally, we would propose using the software with something from the OceanStor series by Huawei. But you can install the software on any of the universal servers like Huawei, HP, Dell — it can be any server.

Pros and Cons

  • "The product has a very simple GUI-based management platform and it is very simple to use. There is a very easy step-by-step configuration procedure that guides you through, and you can configure it very easily."
  • "The initial setup and installation is not that straightforward. It should be made easier and the time to install should be reduced."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten with one being the worst and ten being the best, I would rate this solution as an eight of ten. While I know it is an excellent solution and it will work well for our Huawei customers, we do not have any use cases here in the UAE for FusionStorage yet because it has yet to be deployed anywhere. In China, they would possibly have some of the use cases. But in the UAE, it is totally new. Actual customer feedback is very important because the economy of software has changed and the customer is the one testing the product.
