More Dell EMC PowerProtect DD (Data Domain) Pros →

"The most valuable features are the deduplication and compression capabilities.""The hardware is strong and all the equipment has a good infrastructure. Personally, I think it's the best storage product in HPE for small to medium-sized businesses.""Deduplication and compression are in a good ratio. It supports the HPE Catalyst protocol, which is much faster than NFS and other protocols. We use CommVault and Veeam, and these two solutions support the Catalyst protocol very well and are integrated at high speed. It is faster than normal access.""If you have a large enough storage capacity then you can take an ample amount of data.""The initial setup is one of the most user-friendly B2B user solutions. It's good, it's easy. Deployment usually takes less than one day. You only need one person for deployment and maintenance.""Deduplication is the most valuable feature.""HPE StoreOnce has high performance."

Cons
"They need to make migration easier.""First-time integrations are difficult in NetWorker. NetWorker software needs to be simplified. It's very complex.""I would like to see integration with public cloud.""The price could be improved.""I would like to see better integration and support for backing up to cloud providers such as Alibaba Cloud.""Its management can be improved.""The size and scale of the product are limited and could be improved.""They still have hardware different from the software."

"Cloud integration needs to be simplified.""HPE StoreOnce should come with a detailed installation guide.""The user interface of HPE StoreOnce should be more user-friendly. Additionally, the configuration and troubleshooting could be better.""The GUI and its user-friendliness have some room for improvement.""The web interface, ease of use, and GUI all need to be improved.""The solution should continue to refine its integration capabilities. I also see they are starting to use cloud integration as well, which is good, but they should do more to integrate with it.""When it comes to upgrading, it always goes block-wise. One block is 48 TB raw capacity. It would be good if they can include a smaller capacity for SMB customers. Currently, it is not possible to increase in a smaller capacity. You have to buy the exact same unit. It would be great if they can provide a smaller next block. There are around 20 hard disks, and it would be really helpful if we can add 10 hard disks initially and 10 hard disks later."
