Pros
Catalyst backup is used to back up Oracle databases, and provides very good throughput during backups.Currently, VTLs can only be created on individual service sets and cannot be used to share the resources of other nodes.It's easy to backup data, manage. AQuick recovery.The most valuable features for us are the ease of use, the reliability, and the exceptional deduplication that we get across that data that we store on those devices.We also really benefit from the GUI capabilities.I think the most valuable feature is the catalyst technology, which is in the StoreOnce appliance.The valuable feature is the ability to work with the Veeam software to reduce the backup windows.

One of the most valuable features offered is double-parity RAID, which guarantees that your data will stay intact. We're also able to provision storage and monitor which ones are really consuming storage.It is good to have a unified storage where you can have block and file level protocols.The initial setup was so straightforward. It was well-documented.It is very flexible. It integrates well with the public cloud and other components, so everything can be API driven. Therefore, it is very easy to automate it.Using the built-in Snapshots and SnapMirror technology, we were able to have better working data protection locally and off-site.The storage efficiency provided a maximum savings in our storage utilization.End-users like that they can rely on the Snapshot technology so they can do their restores themselves.Most valuable features are its ease of use, robust Snapshot functionality, and that you can use it in two datacenters with SnapMirror-ing.

Cons
I don't see any new features that we could want or anything that could be done along those lines. Just that we need a bigger machine, so more speed.Agnostic backups.We would like to see some improvements in the Veeam Backup & Replication integration. It's good, but it has a lot of room to improve. In particular around the inability to easily move data between StoreOnce appliances.We're outsourced with a partner who recalls a larger amount of problems with the stability of the product.We archive our backups on tape, so I feel like if we could somehow plug our tape drive directly into the StoreOnce device and set it up to where it would archive based on, if some kind of rules based engine or what have you, that would really be an improvement for us.I would like to see better integration with Veeam software.

I would like to see less latency and higher IOPS.It lacks automatic tiering, When you use data, some of it goes cold. It is not hot data, so the system should automatically move that data to the SATA, while the hot data is kept on tier-one, the SaaS or SSD drives.The only downside is in ease in management; it is not easy to use.It's not a cheap system. It is very expensive. The pricing has been ridiculous every time that we had to renew the support.We would like to have further integration with some backup products. They have some of them already, but there could be more.The AutoSupport could be improved to be more proactive in certain cases.When getting new hardware, always tell the account manager that you are also considering other brands. They will be forced to adjust the price lower.Needs to ​add wizards for newer, inexperienced users.

Pricing and Cost Advice
To be honest, we were quite happy with the price, but we always want things cheaper than they are. I think for what we got, we felt that the price was quite reasonable comparing it to other products that provide that same level of functionality.The price puts me off. It's definitely on the high side.

The scalability is pretty good, but it's too expensive.The price, compared to competitors, is quite high.Cost effective storage for all performance levels (including all-flash).The only area that could be improved is to lower prices for their All Flash FAS.The price it not low, but comparing features to other vendors, the price can be balanced.There are products available in market with comparatively lower costs.Most storage vendors also have software, or licensing bundles, which may offer the required licenses considerably cheaper, but do also maybe offer licenses, which are not needed.The process for going to cluster mode is expensive.
