We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Overall, scalability is great."
"Data Domain Boost has a unique protocol. I don't think with other vendors you get the same efficiency. I work with some the other products, but this solution has amazing efficiency in comparison."
"The solution is very easy to manage. That's its most valuable feature."
"I like the tool set, it's easy to work on and the support is brilliant."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is that it can support both the CIFS and NFS protocols simultaneously."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is deduplication."
"The most valuable feature is the support for plug-ins."
"The backup aspect of the solution is its most valuable feature."
"It results in more efficient storage utilization, cutting capital expenditure in half."
"The deduplication feature in this product is amazing."
"The speed and deduplication ratio are two of the most valuable features of the solution."
"The implementation is straightforward."
"The interface is very user-friendly."
"This is a user-friendly solution."
"The initial setup is one of the most user-friendly B2B user solutions. It's good, it's easy. Deployment usually takes less than one day. You only need one person for deployment and maintenance."
"From a centralized system, I can manage the interface, the backup policies, and the status of the database."
"This solution should cover more platforms, and there should be more product coverage."
"The solution needs a better gateway between the on-premises and cloud deployment models. We have to work around it or find a third party to assist."
"It should be expanded to include other databases and software. It should also be made easier to restore."
"It would be nice if they could have the same tool set right from the smallest to the biggest modules, but being specific frame dependent."
"There are limitations when using the VTL protocol in extreme cases."
"This product is expensive compared to other storage so the price can be improved."
"There are some limitations where you cannot use it as a shared server or as a file server, it is limited for the only backup."
"The solution needs to be more user-friendly for the end-users."
"The product could be improved with better support for data protection."
"This product would be improved with the inclusion of more features to security or WORM."
"The appliance doesn't have the global deduplication, it has StoreOnce deduplication. It does not deduplicate across the appliance, it will deduplicate in one particular store. With the global deduplication, I could store more data."
"The solution would be improved if it could also be used as a data store for VMware."
"The solution's pricing could be improved."
"I would like to see an emphasis placed on making data deduplication and compression more powerful."
"The solution should continue to refine its integration capabilities. I also see they are starting to use cloud integration as well, which is good, but they should do more to integrate with it."
"The repository should have an extension to connect to the cloud and deposit the backups."
"We scale this product by adding licenses, which are related to capacity."
"The cost is monthly."
"The hardware platform is cost intense, so for small and mid-range, this product is not the best choice."
"The pricing is high compared to the competition and should be reconsidered."
"There are costs for additional storage and space."
"Price-wise, it comes with a high price tag when compared to other products."
"The cost of HPE StoreOnce is very expensive."
