If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Huawei OceanStor, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would recommend everyone to try the product, they will be surprised at how good it is. I would rate this product a nine out of 10.
The product is still new for us so we haven't yet come across any technical issues yet. It's possible there will be some problems. I would rate this product an eight out of 10.
We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd recommend the solution. We'd buy the solution again without any hesitation. I'd rate it eight out of ten.
On a scale from one to ten, I'd rate it at a seven. I gave it a score of seven based on my experience with other storage solutions. We've used NetApp, HP, and EMC. We've used quite a number. In fact, I gave this score because of the support. It is quite a high score. But frankly, we're still going through the steps of implementing. We have our main database there. Now we are going to optimize further. It's not only because All-Flash costs money. We should use it optimally. There is a tendency for users to put all their data on the All-Flash. We also have cache solutions whereby a part of the data is on the All-Flash. We are trying to convince users that they don't really need All-Flash for all their data, for all their applications. Maybe in more time, I can compare and give you an idea, but not yet at this stage. I can't tell you which features we need, not yet at this stage.
I would rate it an eight out of ten. I would recommend it to someone considering it. Pricing is very competitive and the routing is very good.
It would be very pretentious to give advice to anyone since the product is very simple and easy to use and we have it only for less than a year. I think the system has more features than we are using right now. Fortunately we have not the opportunity to check the quality of the service as till the moment we have not any problem. Perfection is difficult to achieve, so on a scale from one to ten, my rating is nine. F
The customer should know what he wants and the person who manages the storage should outline the needs. You should be aware of what the seller wants to sell and what he wants to do. But this is relevant to every storage product. As a seller, it's very important to not promise the customer better than what the solution delivers. OceanStor is the best Huawei product for the data center. I would rate this solution seven out of 10. I've never had a storage solution that I've wanted to give more than an eight to. There is no solution without disadvantages.
