"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."
"There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."
"The setup is very easy to manage and configure. The initial setup and takes one hour more or less."
"Its resilience is the most valuable."
"The feature I like best is the stability of the hardware."
"This is one of the most stable, high-end solutions in this area."
"Data optimization, compression, and deduplication are the most important features for us."
"The most valuable feature is that you can use it with all deployment models."
"Most of the features which all enterprises storages solutions have are available in Huawei OceanStor Dorado."
"There are plenty of features available in this solution."
"The majority of our customers find this solution simple to use."
"The most valuable features are the five chips architecture and the purpose-built NVMe hard disk drive. Additionally, the IOPS feature is good."
"I've been satisfied with the level of attention I'm given when I reach out to technical support."
"We can use Huawei OceanStor Dorado capacity storage for many different purposes."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the price to performance ratio."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"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."
"I would like to see the management layer improved."
"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."
"Hitachi should launch some small machines in Brazil. The smallest machine here in Brazil is VSP 350, which can be quite big for some of the customers. In China, Hitachi has small models of this equipment, but those models are not available in our region. Its pricing is a big issue for us. We are resellers, and we face some competition from other vendors. Hitachi doesn't always have a good position in terms of the price. Its user interface is also not as good as some of the other competitors, and it can be improved."
"For the support windows to work, maybe they have to upgrade the firmware of the VSP. They changed the hardware or the disk. I don't know if it was the port blade they changed or a VM for a memory cache. Also, replacing the old target with the processor target would be fine. The old equipment is very easy to manage, and I don't have any bad commentary."
"They should look at the cost because there are other vendors who offer the same cost with more features."
"The user interface should be made simpler because it is difficult to manage."
"I would like to see Hitachi improve their management software. It's been three years since they introduced Ops Center, their management product, and it still hasn't reached at least 50 percent of the capability we require. We are using legacy software because the product Hitachi offers does not stack up in functionality."
"The interface should be simplified and made easier to use."
"Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve by having a multi-tier cloud option and additional protocols"
"If they implement a backup solution directly into the OceanStor then it will be a valuable feature."
"This solution does not support VMware VVols 2.0."
"This solution can improve by providing easier migrations and better Metro features."
"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."
"The user interface of Huawei OceanStor Dorado could be more user-friendly. Other solutions, such as EMC, have a better user interface."
"Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve the integration, there have been some compatibility issues with some operating system functions."
"I would really like to see Heterogeneous Storage Virtualization in a future release."
