Cons
"When speaking about a scale-out, you want to have better equipment. You cannot just add a disc to the foreign equipment. You have to buy another one and put it together, like parallel."

More ExaGrid EX Series Cons »

"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."

More ExaGrid EX Series Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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."
