Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Huawei OceanStor Dorado.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
I would really like to see Heterogeneous Storage Virtualization in a future release.
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.
If they implement a backup solution directly into the OceanStor then it will be a valuable feature.
The logistics can be improved because sometimes we have to wait a long time for the product to be delivered, despite there being stores available in Europe. Some of our customers are discouraged due to this long wait time. The marketing for this product needs to be improved because it does not have enough exposure. This solution does not support VMware VVols 2.0. However, I do not feel that this is necessary.
We cannot complain because everything is perfect. The service is perfect. Reliability is perfect. We are very impressed with the solution we implemented.
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.
An area of this product that has room for improvement is the NAS capability.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
