Huawei Earns Gartner Peer InsightsTM Customers’ Choice for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage

[Shenzhen, China,23rd May 2024 ] Huawei was named a Customers’ Choice in the 2024 Gartner Peer Insights™ Voice of the Customer report for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage, marking the third consecutive year that it has received the distinction. According to the Gartner report, Huawei earned 100% for “Willingness to Recommend” for its OceanStor Scale-Out Storage.

Gartner Peer Insights is a free peer review and ratings platform designed for enterprise software and services decision-makers. Reviews are organized by products in live markets that align to Gartner research markets, defined as Magic Quadrant or Market Guide-defined markets, or GPI-defined markets that are opened at the discretion of the GPI team and do not require research published to open the space on Peer Insights. A total of 10 vendors were recognized in the Voice of Customer report. Huawei received 119 comments from customers in the telecom, finance, healthcare, services and manufacturing industries across the Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East regions and had the highest number of reviews among recognized vendors.

A customer in the energy and utilities industry commented: “We chose this product for our local data center project, which is our digital oil field foundations. The product is easy to deploy and quick to expand and upgrade, and also has a very good compatibility for other hardware and software…. After deploying this product, the database and app performance is greatly improved (at least more than 10 times faster than before). The private cloud platform is finally working perfectly with VMs HA and supports failover on the unified storage.” [1]

Another customer, this time a cloud architect from the IT industry, also spoke highly of Huawei’s Scale-Out storage: “Good product. We have a good performance with a unique geo-redundant solution in 4 different data centers. The geo-redundant cluster feature helps to reduce the costs and gives us the possibility to write data in all active-active mode…. We notice that the time to write 1 TB of data on disk is very short and this meets our business goal.” [2]

“It is a great honor for Huawei to obtain a Customers’ Choice from Gartner Peer InsightsTM for scale-out storage once again. We believe the results demonstrate the recognition and trust of our customers around the world in the comprehensive competitiveness, maturity of large-scale commercial use, and after-sales service quality of Huawei OceanStor scale-out storage.” Yuan Yuan, President of Huawei Scale-Out Storage Domain said. He added: “We value each and every one of our customer’s voices. They encourage us to continue making great strides in our product development. We will prioritize customer-centricity and develop a unified scale-out storage platform to assist users across industries in creating more flexible, greener, and more accessible data infrastructure in the future.”
