HPE StoreOnce Review

We're sensitive to the amount of storage our backups take, so "datafication" is the most valuable feature for us.

Valuable Features

It's a solution that "datafies" backups so that only data is stored. Because we're sensitive to the amount of storage our backups take, "datafication" is the most valuable feature for us.

Improvements to My Organization

It saves storage space and the cost of investments in additional storage capacity. Data in other solutions is stored with other backup information. But with StoreOnce, only the data is stored, "datafying" the backup. This allows us to have a lot of backups within a small space, ultimately saving us money.

Room for Improvement

It needs to handle different kinds of media better. The system will fault sometimes when combining media with forms. It would be best if it could handle both at the same time.

Deployment Issues

StoreOnce deploys without any issues.

Stability Issues

We had a stability issue once because of development, but it's since been resolved.

Scalability Issues

We haven't had scalability issues. Again, we're able to store more data in a smaller space.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is responsive, but since we're installers, I expect it to be quicker.

Initial Setup

The initial setup is difficult for the normal user.

Other Advice

Think about your timelines, how you plan to use the load and read data, and how you will set up your system.
