HPE StoreOnce Review

Multiple data types can be isolated and segregated to provide multi-tenancy.

Valuable Features

The product was easy for me in terms of architecture, deployment and support. In comparison to other products I have worked with, these areas for HP have high scores.

Improvements to My Organization

It has provided flexible options accommodating a broad range of uses. For example, multiple data types can be isolated and segregated to provide multi-tenancy.

Room for Improvement

Reporting needs to be worked on.

Use of Solution

I've used it for one year.

Deployment Issues

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues

Yes we did, but it was resolved with a software upgrade.

Scalability Issues

No issues encountered.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Above average service.

Technical Support:

Above average with excellent response times. In one case, I needed a hard drive replaced, and the person who took my call was the person who arranged the engineer/part to be replaced. Also, the person was knowledgeable about the product.

Previous Solutions

No previous solution was being used.

Initial Setup

It was straightforward. We went from proof of concept to production in days as opposed to weeks.

Thanks for the review - which StoreOnce appliance did you use? For those that don't know the portfolio well, I did a ChalkTalk (an easy on the eyes video format I use) that gives an overview of StoreOnce. Here's a blog post that has that ChalkTalk and more: hpstorage.me/1Ff6fB0
