We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 user interface is very good. The reporting and monitoring features are also good."
"The most valuable feature is the recovery."
"Its capability to give a BMR for all the workstations that I want to connect to."
"The solution backs up Microsoft workloads as well as anything on the market."
"It has an application backup, a file backup, a system backup and a hypervisor."
"The initial setup is quite straightforward."
"The most valuable feature is that DPM has an index so individual files can be searched."
"The automated procedure is quite good for us, as it is able to capture all of the information that we require."
"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."
"The data tagging feature needs improvement. The solution could be a bit more intuitive in certain aspects."
"We can't take a snapshot and take it outside, which is a problem."
"The user friendliness could be improved."
"There is a very poor online user community in terms of people blogging about their experiences with DPM."
"Compatibility and integration with other products needs improvement."
"The user interface can be improved quite a bit."
"Additional Hyper-V knowledge would be great."
"Management reporting could be improved."
"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."
HP StoreOnce Backup is a data backup solution that provides a consistent, high-performance, scale-out architecture for your entire enterprise.
