"There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."
"The high performance is very valuable, as well as the enterprise reliability features."
"We have been able to consolidate storage into Pavilion. Pavilions are our only SANs because it is a bring your own disk solution. When new drives come out, we are able to take out half of the drives in the system, put in new drives, move our VMs over to the new drives, take the other drives out, and populate those with new drives. Then, we are suddenly twice as dense as we were before. NVMe flash is only going to get denser and cheaper so we can make use of that every couple of years by just throwing newer disks into it at a fraction of the cost of a new SAN."
"The performance is good, which is important."
"The most valuable feature of Dell EMC XtremIO is the data protection (DP) group, it is one of the most advanced features in these types of arrays. The dedupe and compression that this array provides both do a superb job."
"A valuable feature of XtremIO is that, in terms of administration, it's simple and manageable."
"The Metro clustering and solid-state performance, are the most valuable features of this solution."
"Most of the features which all enterprises storages solutions have are available in Huawei OceanStor Dorado."
"I've been satisfied with the level of attention I'm given when I reach out to technical support."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the overall simplicity."
"The most valuable features are the five chips architecture and the purpose-built NVMe hard disk drive. Additionally, the IOPS feature is good."
"The installation and management are very easy."
"This is a stable product that we can use for DR in production."
"There are plenty of features available in this solution."
"The majority of our customers find this solution simple to use."
"In our current configuration, we can only run the line controllers in high availability, active-standby mode, whereas we would like to see active-active implemented."
"The rail system that Pavilion uses to mount up into a standard Dell or APC cabinet extends further back than normal rails, and they cover up the zero PDU slot. So, I don't like the rail system that comes with the device. That is my biggest complaint."
"I would like to see the management layer improved."
"In the next release, the solution could have better integration and if we can host assets on the cloud, such as NetApp has the NetApp volumes, which we can host on the cloud directly called NetApp CVO (cloud volume ONTAP). Dell EMC should come up with something purely on the cloud rather than manage services."
"I would like to see the ease of deployment and built-in Metro clustering."
"If you are looking at flash storage solutions, XtremIO doesn't offer any unique features. Most of my customers are migrating their workload from XtremIO to other formats because of this."
"Scalability is something that can be improved because there is an issue when it comes to mixing versions."
"The data compression and deduplication ratio of Huawei OceanStor Dorado is not as good as other solutions, such as EMC and Pure Storage. It is important when looking at capacity effectiveness."
"If they implement a backup solution directly into the OceanStor then it will be a valuable feature."
"Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve by having a multi-tier cloud option and additional protocols"
"The product could always be faster."
"Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve the integration, there have been some compatibility issues with some operating system functions."
"This solution can improve by providing easier migrations and better Metro features."
"I would really like to see Heterogeneous Storage Virtualization in a future release."
"This solution does not support VMware VVols 2.0."
