HPE StoreOnce Review

Each application has its own virtual library to increase the deduplication ratio.


Valuable Features:

  • It has very simple architecture compared to the old HP VLS
  • It also provides ease of management and is easy to configure

Improvements to My Organization:

Each application has its own virtual library to increase the deduplication ratio.

Room for Improvement:

  • Dedupe algorithms
  • More control from HP data protector software

Use of Solution:

We've installed three StoreOnce appliances.

Deployment Issues:

Until now we did not have any problems with StoreOnce. However, have had a problem with the HP Data Protector. In order to import tapes from StoreOnce, we had to identify the ID of the items in each store on the appliances, and then create them manually on the HP Data Protector.

Other Advice:

I would advise you that if they have a remote site, (e.g. two StoreOnce appliances) to buy the Catalyst License for faster performance, since you will have a single engine of deduplication for both sites.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: HP Partner
