- It has very simple architecture compared to the old HP VLS
- It also provides ease of management and is easy to configure
Each application has its own virtual library to increase the deduplication ratio.
We've installed three StoreOnce appliances.
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.
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.
