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.
Everybody would like the cost to be minimized.
The cost of HPE StoreOnce is very expensive.
Price-wise, it comes with a high price tag when compared to other products.
The licensing fees are based on how much storage space is required.
There are costs for additional storage and space.
The license is part of the hardware. You don't need to buy or renew it separately. StoreOnce comes in a package: hardware and software. All the licenses come with it. Software licenses for backup solutions like Data Protector you do have to purchase separately, but in terms of the backup appliance, it comes with all the features and the license as part of it. You have to only purchase the application license but that is very cheap.
If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering HPE StoreOnce, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
