Huawei OceanStor is being used within the data centre to run mission-critical workloads i.e. SAP ECC6 database and application servers. The system being deployed in the data centre SAN environment is the Huawei OceanStor Dorado V3 all-flash storage system, which has been configured with Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) disks for maximum performance. Since this is an all-flash system, it addresses performance, reliability, and availability features.
- The Huawei OceanStor Dorado All Flash NVMe storage array provides maximum performance.
- The OceanStor Dorado is ideally suited for use with databases, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Virtual Machines, and file server environments.
- The capital and maintenance costs were very competitive for a similar storage system at other storage vendors.
- The licensing needs to be explained better. There is not much information about how the licensing works for the OceanStor, and what I found was a vague summary and not clearly explained. This became a problem when we deployed the system and realized we needed an additional migration license.

I would recommend the Huawei OceanStor, especially the Dorado All-Flash NVMe product line. There are many features and installation is quite simple, and it becomes even simpler if you deploy Huawei OceanStor DJ within your environment.
