Huawei OceanStor Dorado Room for Improvement

Regional Sales Manager at New horizon

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 solution should be properly sized because if it is not there could be flexibility issues. The system should be sized properly and once it is delivered to the customer, they should ensure everything was done correctly.

When the US and China political issues come into play they have issues in qualifying the US applications with their new storage models. Many issues can arise. For example, customers might want to use Oracle hardware with their Huawei hardware to solve some of their use cases but the companies will not coordinate with each other. The political situation makes Huawei OceanStor Dorado not integrate well.

In an upcoming release, it would be a benefit to have better algorithms on data reduction, data compression, and data deduplication.

With Huawei Durado we have some issues regarding the connectivity with the AIX system. It should have easy connectivity with the AIX, however, I've found that with AIX, it has some issues and due to this, we need to remove the exact fiber card sometimes and then plug it in again so that it can connect with the AIX systems.

IBM flash is much better than Huawei, with respect to the response time and performance.

One thing that is really a little annoying is the graphical interface regarding the performance and iOS. That is a little complicated. The GUI could be better with respect to performance.

With in-place upgrades, the data should really be right on the desktop. If you want to move to the next version of the box, for example, if I have a Durado 3000 and want to move towards a 6000 version, it should have an in-place upgrade, rather than a complete migration requirement.

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.

The user interface of Huawei OceanStor Dorado could be more user-friendly. Other solutions, such as EMC, have a better user interface.

We have experienced some minor issues with the integration of the solution.

If they implement a backup solution directly into the OceanStor then it will be a valuable feature.

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.
