Plenty of features, priced well, and reliable

Pros and Cons

  • "There are plenty of features available in this solution."
  • "This solution can improve by providing easier migrations and better Metro features."

What is our primary use case?

Huawei OceanStor Dorado is a flash storage solution.

What is most valuable?

There are plenty of features available in this solution.

What needs improvement?

This solution can improve by providing easier migrations and better Metro features.

In an upcoming release, Huawei could improve by adding migration services to allow customers to migrate from other solutions, such as HPE or Dell. This would help make this solution more attractive to those wanting to switch.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for approximately one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is highly stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have clients of all business sizes.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support is good. However, there are times when it can be challenging.

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

I have previously used IBM, HPE, Dell, and Lenovo and when comparing Huawei OceanStor Dorado, it is a very good solution.

How was the initial setup?

The difficulty level of the installation depends on the client's environment. There are easy installations and very complicated ones. For example, if the client needs to have replication and backups a few times a day and there is more than a 200-kilometer distance for the data to be transferred it can be difficult.

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

We usually recommend our customers choose advanced licensing and enterprise companies are more inclined to choose this solution because it is more cost-effective than competitors.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Huawei OceanStor Dorado a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
