We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"HPE StoreOnce has high performance.""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.""Deduplication is the most valuable feature.""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."

"It's a good product, it does what we want it to do.""I like that it's enterprise-capable. It can handle multiple operating systems. It can handle multiple database types. It can handle a lot of different backup use cases. It's flexible.""If you are running on a legacy tape environment NetBackup is best.""The main thing I like about NetBackup is CloudPoint. You can take a snapshot of the endpoint and back it up with CloudPoint. The data backups are the most important.""I like NetBackup's accelerator feature. You can take a full backup with incremental speed and integrate it with block tracking.""The backup and restore features work very well.""I like the virtual server backup.""Veritas released a new feature in version 8 of NetBackup called VRP. It's kind of like replication management from VMware. The great thing about this feature is that Veritas gave it to us for free."

Cons
"Cloud integration needs to be simplified.""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.""The user interface of HPE StoreOnce should be more user-friendly. Additionally, the configuration and troubleshooting could be better.""The web interface, ease of use, and GUI all need to be improved.""HPE StoreOnce should come with a detailed installation guide.""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.""The GUI and its user-friendliness have some room for improvement."

"Veritas could simplify the firmware recovery in terms of the deployed. The process shouldn't be dependent on the agents. It should be completely agentless.""The database integration could be better.""Main area that could be improved is the pricing, to make it more competitive""The restoration method and the compression ratio need improvement.""We would like the Java console to be updated.""Like the other enterprise solutions, Veritas NetBackup isn't easy to implement. It's a little bit hard compared to other solutions like Data Protector for HPE. You have to struggle to learn a lot of features that Veritas NetBackup offers to customers.""When the customer is using SaaS applications like Office 365, the integration falls short and needs to be improved.""Lacks a reporting feature."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."

  • "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."
  • "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."
  • "A better price would make this product more competitive."
  • "In terms of cost, it's not very good."
