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 reporting is very good, with all of the details highlighted and very clear."
"The most valuable features are the VMware VADP backups and the support for data domains."
"The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features."
"Good graphical user interface. It's easy to create policies and to do installs."
"The solution offers very good storage efficiency, so there's excellent compression and deduplication within the product that our clients really appreciate."
"The most valuable feature is the trouble-free operation, as we have not had many problems with it."
"The solution offers a lot of really great features that organizations can utilize and take advantage of."
"The most valuable feature is the disaster recovery functionality."
"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."
"This solution would benefit from a more friendly, web-based interface."
"In terms of improvement, it's very difficult to make it work with multiple business units. Its security model is too constricted."
"It would be helpful, in future releases, if the solution could add WORM (Write Once Read Many) support right within the product."
"Lacks a reporting feature."
"It would be extremely helpful if the solution offered near-zero recovery time for SQL."
"The speed of restoring data could be improved."
"The only pain point we have with this solution is the cost. It's very expensive. In fact, it's so expensive we are looking for other platforms. We want to move away from it in order to save our organization costs."
"The support for new technologies is limited."
"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."
"We are very satisfied with the price of this solution."
"If you have a source size of one terabyte then they will charge for a one terabyte license, although what is actually being stored is much less."
"It's expensive when comparing to other solutions on the market."
"My licensing model is based on capacity so as we grow, the price we pay increases and it becomes too expensive."
"Licensing fees are charged based on the number of CPU cores."
"We are happy with the pricing that we have, but it's expensive."
"It is very expensive. The licensing cost for this solution is on a yearly basis. It is approximately 50k. We will continue using it at least for the next year, but we are currently doing an analysis to switch to some other solution."
"Pricing is good, under our budget, and flexible."
