HPE StoreOnce Review

The greatest benefit to us has been lower costs than our previous solution.


What is most valuable?

  • Redundancy
  • Ease of use
  • Scalability
  • Disaster recovery

How has it helped my organization?

The greatest benefit to us has been lowering costs.

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see the following features added in:

  • More detailed reporting
  • More granular reporting
  • More features in the CLI

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Excellent.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Excellent.

How are customer service and technical support?

Excellent. There has been an integrated partnership with the ability to answer any and all questions.

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

We were using a different solution, but it was too costly so we needed to switch.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. HP took a hands-off approach, which was good, and they let us do a lot of it on our own. We therefore didn’t have to do cross-training and we were able to do a lot of trial and error, which was good for us as well.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at EMC.

What other advice do I have?

Most important criteria to look for includes:

  • Price
  • Features
  • Functionality
  • Ease of use

Definitely look at this solution as a viable option as it is cost effective and reliable.
