What is most valuable?

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 use it primarily for storage of backup data. We need to keep large... more»

How has it helped my organization?

In the service provider business, we are competing with a large number of other organizations and a lot of the time price is what matters to customers. We need to be competitive. We need to be able to provide a service at a price point that... more»

What needs improvement?

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. Also, there are... more»

What is most valuable?

I think the most valuable feature is the catalyst technology, which is in the StoreOnce appliance. It allows us to really hit our backup targets. It also allows us to make the most of the appliance and make the most of the technology as a whole.

How has it helped my organization?

It's really given us more confidence in our backup procedures and our DR. It's also really just been beneficial because it's kind of replaced a lot of older equipment and consolidated our back-up plan into one device and made things a lot... more»

What needs improvement?

The biggest thing I think can be improved upon would be direct tape from the StoreOnce device so that we could actually ... We archive our backups on tape, so I feel like if we could somehow plug our tape drive directly into the StoreOnce... more»

What is most valuable?

I would say the reliability, the ease of use, and the simple upgrades are the most valuable features. We did quite a bit of capacity upgrades in the past because it wasn't our primary storage platform for backups in the beginning. So we kind... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It allowed us to stop using physical tapes, so we saved money on the tape storage. It allows us to have better DR capabilities because everything we back up with StoreOnce, gets replicated up to our DR site.

What needs improvement?

We had some growing pains, which was due to our internal issues. We were rushed to get it installed, and didn't necessarily do all the proper training on it. Even though we had HPE resources onsite, again we were just trying to get it up and... more»

What is most valuable?

It was primarily about the deduplication technology, and that's what brought it in the door for us. We were looking for something to offset our backup procedures so that we would be able to get better backup times, but also better restore... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The D2D capabilities have speeded backups.

What needs improvement?

The issues that I have aren't with the hardware itself. It's with our backup solution, it's with some of the other things that interact with StoreOnce, and it may be environmental. I don't see any deficiencies in the hardware solutions there.

What is most valuable?

It's cost effective, technologically advanced, and very scalable. It integrates with the rest of the HPE infrastructure, like 3PAR, for example.

How has it helped my organization?

From a business point of view, it enables us to pay closer attention to our caps and our competitive cost level. Because it integrates with other HPE systems, it is easier for us to manage compared to the system we had before.

What needs improvement?

I would mostly want to see some technical improvements in some very specific areas. For example, a feature that is missing, compared to the competition, is the ability to globally duplicate all systems. EMC Data Domain can deduplicate... more»

What is most valuable?

For us, we can save a lot on storage costs for doing backups. It integrates seamlessly with our backup solution, which is a third-party solution, not from HPE. We use Veeam; and StoreOnce works with them.

How has it helped my organization?

It works great for backing up Windows. Backups are much quicker now. Previously, it took 15-16 hours every day. Now it takes 3-4 hours maximum. Replication of our site using Virtual Storage Appliance is really easy. We did not have any backup... more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a better integration with Active Directory to identify users. Currently, we need to create separate accounts, so we need to have separate passwords to log in for assurance. It's not a big issue, but it is an issue. We... more»

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 that we could want or anything that could be... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of StoreOnce are ease-of-use and ease-of-configuration when compared to the old IBM Tivoli family solution that we're using.

How has it helped my organization?

The benefits compared to the old solution are broad flexibility, ease-of-configuration, and ease-of-maintenance. We use it for part of our backup solution.

What needs improvement?

For us, nothing is missing at the moment and over time this will probably become clearer. We are going towards the cloud environment at some point or a hybrid cloud, so it could be something on that front, but we are not working with the... more»
