Thanks for the review - I just found it. One point I'm sure you're aware of is that there is a large family of StoreOnce products that scale from 5TB to over a PB for backup. Hopefully your HP StoreOnce 2620 is the right size for your needs.

If you didn't hear about it, HP StoreOnce 6500 was named the backup product of the year by Storage Magazine/TechTarget. There is a blog post you can read on my blog: http://hpstorage.me/1B95gUm

Thanks again for the review!
