Compression and replication are the features of this product that are the most valuable to me.

What is most valuable?

Compression and replication are the features of this product that are the most valuable to me.

How has it helped my organization?

We moved from MSL and VSL, building a number of virtual libraries with different LTO formats and removing hundreds of physical tapes that we replaces with virtual replicated tapes.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see improvements regarding segmentation or the size limitations per library.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution for 15 months.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Segmentation was one of the requirements. The HP team promised us that it is possible, but it wasn't available.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is excellent.

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

We previously used MSL and VSL, and we moved to this product because it supports virtualization (D2D).

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was very simple.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it in-house. I think the solution was easy to implement using HP Data Protector 8.01 at the beginning. The tricky part is the upgrades. I recommend upgrading the FW to latest the stable release before configuring.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is good.

If you are going to replicate, buy the two-way license.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend this product.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
