HPE StoreOnce Review

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


What is most valuable?

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.

How has it helped 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.

Reporting needs to be worked on.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for one year.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

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

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Above average service.

No previous solution was being used.

How was the 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
