Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The product is very stable."
"The best part of this solution is that it just works."
"The most valuable features are compression and de-duplication."
"The fact that we can take the backup straight onto tape is the most valuable feature."
"This solution has improved our organization through better file and database recovery."
"The interface is easy to use."
"The archiving feature is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"Instead of taking three different backups of your systems, you're taking only one. You're able to crack that open and get what you need. The incident recovery, where it creates the VM and then you're running it, technically you're running it on Spectrum Protect. But then in the background, it's doing the storage motion and moving it off the Spectrum Protect back to your VMware environment. The users don't know the difference."
"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."
"Sometimes we experience trouble with the backup transfer of the control files."
"The user interface needs to be improved."
"In the next version of the solution, I would like to see cloud support."
"We cannot take VMware backups for our banking data center environment."
"The deduplication must be perfect, and thus should be improved."
"Better integration with other tools and databases is needed."
"Although I am not a technical user, I would say the cloud integration features could be improved."
"Their support is lacking. I've talked to their developers and stuff in the last couple of weeks and they reassure me that some people have retired, and they're working on getting that bumped back up. But the support lacks a lot to be desired at this point."
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."
"The pricing of the solution is high in comparison to other products on the market. For example, IBM and Symantec have less costly options."
"The licensing fees are on a yearly basis, which for us it is about R400,000 (approximately $27,000 USD)."
"The pricing is a little expensive for our current employer, so they want to move to a cheaper solution."
"The licensing fees are between $8,000 and $10,000 per year."
"IBM provides an open license policy, which is more like a gentlemen's agreement."
"One can go with either a PVU licensing model or a capacity based licensing model. Either solution does not block the usage, if over used."
"It is fairly reasonable as compared to other solutions in the market."
"We have capacity licensing. We use the front end. The capacity licensing is pretty okay on the licensing price. I used to use the old PVU-based licensing in the early environment, but now we use capacity-based licensing."
