HPE StoreOnce Review

Deduplication Alghorithams still require enhancement but it has a very flexible integration with HP Data Protector.

Valuable Features

  1. StoreOnce Catalyst Store
  2. VTL Emulation
  3. Extensive disaster recovery options
  4. Federated deduplication

Improvements to My Organization

Due to high speed and multiple simultaneous backup session our backup window is reduced remarkably, data throughputs are mentioned follows:

  • Up to 100 TB/hr of backup performance with StoreOnce Catalyst
  • Up to 40 TB/hr of native backup performance
  • Up to 40 TB/hr of restore performance

Thanks for the review - I just found it. 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!
