Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable features are the deduplication and compression capabilities.""Deduplication is the most valuable feature.""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.""HPE StoreOnce has high performance.""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."

"The solution has a very easy-to-navigate user interface.""This is a good backup interconversion solution because all the masters and the targets backups are on the same system. It is easy to administrate for a single point of access for clients.""It has been our go-to product for backup.""It is easy to use and the performance is good.""We find the pricing is reasonable.""The reporting is very good compared to other tools.""The solution uses minimal resources.""The initial setup gets easier the more you do it."

Cons
"The web interface, ease of use, and GUI all need to be improved.""HPE StoreOnce should come with a detailed installation guide.""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.""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.""Cloud integration needs to be simplified."

More HPE StoreOnce Cons →

"The hybrid model is not that efficient if we want to off-site data; it takes a lot of time to upload the data on a regular basis.""It would be a better solution if we were able to make more reports in regards to the backup system.""The desirability of appliance solutions is dwindling in the marketplace.""The reporting feature can be improved.""It could be better integrated with other platforms.""The configuration can sometimes be tricky during implementation.""The upgrade process of the solution needs to be improved since it is extremely complicated, especially without the benefit of a support person who can guide one through it.""I would like to see support for databases such as MySQL and MongoDB."

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."
