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 solution is very easy to use and it offers great support."
"The solution can be used for all Office 365 applications."
"It gives you an option to back up to the cloud or back up to on-premise, or to backup to cloud storage."
"One feature that works well for us is that the Cloud Manager is a completely agentless solution. There's a similar dashboard on both the versions for on-premises and the cloud, and with reference to the Cloud Manager, it's a little faster because there's nothing to be installed as such. Being agentless, it doesn't require any agent to be deployed on the targets where the backups are triggered."
"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."
"I would like to see more web support."
"It would be nice if the solution was more complete. Many customers are looking for a single solution or silo that they can manage everything from. It would be nice, instead of having different products, if everything a client needed was in one solution."
"There are still a few things on SharePoint that they need to correct in terms of how they backup and restore."
"One area that can be improved is around how we define the different KPIs. In particular, the business KPIs. I have my own in-house application for the business KPIs, so for example, with our policies around retention, which is a period of seven years, I have to read these parameters from other applications and I need them to integrate well."
"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."
"It is a rather expensive program."
"The pricing is more or less the same as what we'd get from Veeam on Office 365, so it's fine."
"Our usage depends on the number of licenses we have. On the cloud, it's a pay-to-use kind of model which suits our needs well. Once we have the Cloud Manager installed, the licensing process is okay, regardless of whether we're running backups in the cloud or on-premises. Sometimes, we have to restrict the number of users as per the contractual agreement and in this case we simply cut down on the licensing."
