HPE StoreOnce Review

It's reduced costs for storage based on the previous deduplication hardware we were using, although scalability can become an issue once you grow past the capacity of a single cluster pair.


Valuable Features

Deduplication and many integration options ie. NAS, VTL, Catalyst.

Improvements to My Organization

It's reduced costs for storage based on the previous deduplication hardware we were using.

Use of Solution

We've been using it for two years alongside HP Data Protector.

Scalability Issues

Scalability can become an issue once you grow past the capacity of a single cluster pair. This will mean additional controllers and licensing and can be fairly costly.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Very good support for the hardware.

Previous Solutions

We moved from the previous solution due to the support cost of the old product.

Initial Setup

Initial setup of the hardware was fairly straightforward.

Implementation Team

Implemented through a third party vendor. There were some complications with delivery of the units and site surveys not being completed. After those issues things were fine.

Other Solutions Considered

We evaluated this against other products and based (mainly) on cost we selected the HP solution.

Other Advice

While we have been very happy with StoreOnce, HP Data Protector leaves a lot to be desired.
