HPE StoreOnce Review

When using the dedupe feature, backups take up less space than they previously did.

What is most valuable?

De-duplication is valuable because it is a technique to take backups of unique data only. We have to do backups on a daily and weekly basis, where the daily one is incremental and the weekly one is a full backup. When we ran this type of backup on a physical cartridge, it would take up a huge amount of space as there is no de-dupe with cartridges. When using de-dupe, backups take less space than they previously did, and this minimizes the costs to our company.

How has it helped my organization?

The de-duplication feature saves us storage space.

What needs improvement?

The performance could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using it for one and a half years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We're unable to expand our storage capabilities smoothly.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

It's good.

Technical Support:

We are not getting any direct support from HP, but we are getting support from their partner. The support is relatively good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

This is the first solution that we have used.

How was the initial setup?

It is straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We used a vendor team who were 8/10.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

This was done by the planning team.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend using the upgraded version of this product.
