We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution can scale up to one petabyte right now. It's very good for enterprise-level organizations."
"The initial setup was straightforward. Deployment takes about two weeks."
"The deduplication feature is the most valuable part of the solution."
"We have never had any issues with Data Domain. It has been stable."
"The most valuable features are the deduplication and compression and the Data Domain Boost."
"It's very easy to use the domain once it's been set up. The interface is also user-friendly."
"The solution's most valuable feature is the integrated deduplication function."
"The product provides good backup and compression services."
"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."
"From a centralized system, I can manage the interface, the backup policies, and the status of the database."
"The most valuable features are the deduplication and compression capabilities."
"If you have a large enough storage capacity then you can take an ample amount of data."
"Deduplication is the most valuable feature."
"The pricing should be adjusted. Customers continuously talk about the price. They know it is a good solution and they really need the type of storage the solution offers, but it costs somewhere around $100,000 and up. It's not cheap, but it's very important for data vendors."
"The pricing model needs to be improved."
"EMC is very expensive for small customers."
"We are not able to deal directly with the OEM we have to go to their partners in Nigeria."
"We have had deduplication and replication issues. When we used another backup software we noticed that it didn't have the same issues."
"The firmware upgrades could be simplified. I'm in the process of struggling to upgrade right now."
"The pricing could be better, but it's still not too expensive."
"The licensing model was the biggest concern for our company, but the poor support after the initial implementation is of equal concern."
"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 repository should have an extension to connect to the cloud and deposit the backups."
"The GUI and its user-friendliness have some room for improvement."
"The web interface, ease of use, and GUI all need to be improved."
"Cloud integration needs to be simplified."
"Pricing is related to size. A lower range solution might be about $33,000. My customers use higher range versions with a price of around $100,000. That's the price for both the hardware and software."
"In Naira it was twenty-five or twenty-seven million (approximately $75,000 USD) for the implementation and maintenance cost for three years."
"There are many options in the pricing structure which can cause some confusion and necessitate the purchase of additional licensing."
"This is one of the more expensive backup solutions on the market."
"Its price is reasonable."
"It could be more competitively priced. Its licensing was for five years. Obviously, the support will get renewed at some stage, but that's it."
"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."
"We have got a perpetual license, and we have access to all the features. If you are using cloud banks, you can store the internal data in HPE Cloud if needed. You can offload the data to the HPE Cloud. It is a licensed product. We have got around 10 TB of cloud bank storage with a one-time payment. We specifically took 10 TB for very critical offsite backups. We can also increase it in blocks if needed."
