What is most valuable?

The OceanStor V3 5000 was, when we started, the first real NVMe all-flash storage solution. In NVMe, the performance was much more impressive to seek latency and that was unmatched. When we later sold our machine, the supplier did not have any in stock. Only later Dell was able to introduce PowerMax… more»

What needs improvement?

We cannot complain because everything is perfect. The service is perfect. Reliability is perfect. We are very impressed with the solution we implemented.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is very competitive. At first we were cautious about the NVMe storage but the price was more competitive than other solutions. Even more, if we consider the total cost of ownership of the storage because the cost of maintenance of the all-flash storage is very little. All-flash Huawei is… more»

What other advice do I have?

I really do recommend this solution to others. There are very few features that are not available in this program: it has compression, it has duplication, it has a clone, it has the alternator, it has replication, it has the CAP. It has everything and very low latency, all integrated into one… more»

What is most valuable?

The deduplication features and the graphical user interface (GUI) of the solution are the most valuable to me.

What needs improvement?

An area of this product that has room for improvement is the NAS capability.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did previously use a different solution, but we switched due to Huawei's better price-performance ratio.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be that it's a very good product and I'm very happy with it. In the next version, it would be nice to have a converged solution for NAS and SAN. On a scale from one to 10, where one is the worst and 10 is the best, I will rate a nine, because it's a very good product and… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution is very fast, but IBM is winning at the right speed. The GUI is very simple, however, in comparison to IBM. The interface is nice and simple, as are the guides.

What needs improvement?

The speeds of the disks themselves need to be faster. The disks are not flash. When we opened our hard drive from the inclusion, I saw a converter, and it's not entirely flash. It would be helpful in the future if they could create another solution that can manage both Huawei and non-Huawei boxes.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't handle pricing, but I do believe it is less expensive than IBM.

What other advice do I have?

We use a hybrid deployment model, and we're currently testing the solution. I'd rate the solution 8.5 out of ten.

What is most valuable?

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

How has it helped my organization?

Guaranteed low latency for random read and write iOS with excellent stability at a competitive price or performance level.

What needs improvement?

The version of the Dorados which we use is not using NVMe. However, the current generation is using the faster NVMe technology, thus lowering latency and increasing throughput.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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