What is most valuable?

It's easy to backup data, manage. Also I did a lot of firmware upgrades that went fine. And it's a product that's been running now for nearly three years without any issues. So that's all very good.

How has it helped my organization?

I do not spend as much time on it because we can virtualize the tape drives and use Catalyst functions. Not nearly as many tapes or anything like that. Easily, man-hours have been cut down.

What needs improvement?

We have a contract for the next release. We haven't received that product yet. I expect the same thing from it. Not anything new, just a bigger solution when we try it. I don't see any new features… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

What other advice do I have?

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

EMC, I can't remember what it's called, but they have a booster technology software also. We chose HPE because we had Data Protector. So we needed that to integrate into the StoreOnce.

What do you think of HPE StoreOnce?

What is our primary use case?

Deduplication. As well, having Catalyst backups that are supported by HPE StoreOnce 6600 is very good for BURA.

How has it helped my organization?

It reduced larger backup windows where we have had to wait for days to complete one full backup of a larger database.

What is most valuable?

Catalyst backup is used to back up Oracle databases, and provides very good throughput during backups.

What needs improvement?

We are looking for Federated VTLs just like Federated Catalyst Store. Currently, VTLs can only be created on individual service sets and cannot be used to share the resources of other nodes. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.
