Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The traditional storage node and VPN setups are still viable options, but DD Boost offers a premium option with additional advantages. If available, adopting DD Boost can be a good choice.""The solution is quite scalable. An organization shouldn't have any problem expanding if they use this solution.""The initial setup of DD Boost involves a simple procedure.""The solution is very good because it is easy to use and it speeds up the backup and lowers the requirement for the storage rate. It is capable of encryption, compression, and deduplication and it is fast for sending all of the data over the network because it sends only the change blocks from the client to the DD server.""It cuts down network traffic, and only the relevant parts move around because it is deduced and encrypted.""The initial setup is very straightforward.""It's stable and reliable.""I like the tool set, it's easy to work on and the support is brilliant."

"Currently, VTLs can only be created on individual service sets and cannot be used to share the resources of other nodes.""The interface is very user-friendly.""It is very easy to implement.""We also really benefit from the GUI capabilities.""It results in more efficient storage utilization, cutting capital expenditure in half.""The solution is stable.""The initial setup is simple.""If you have a large enough storage capacity then you can take an ample amount of data."

More HPE StoreOnce Pros →

"When my company faced a problem with the product, it took some time to get proper support.""The experience of restoring VMware or Veeam Backup is difficult, when the backup you are using is a solution for backup, which is already having a deduplication. When you try to restore from Data Domain, it doesn't work perfectly, because Data Domain is already having a deduplication as well.""The solution could improve by adding more flexibility for the customers here in Thailand. Some of the small capacity models of the solution are not needed by our customers. There should be a more flexible version of the solution.""DD Boost is a bit expensive.""The multi-tier functionality can be improved, but it is quite good. They could improve replication and perhaps support additional sharing network protocols. I would also like to see better implementation of NFS Version 3, but it is already implemented and quite usable as it is.""I'd like the be able to deploy the solution on SAN backups.""Integration could be better.""It should be expanded to include other databases and software. It should also be made easier to restore."

More DD Boost Cons →

"HPE StoreOnce could improve the capacity support.""The user interface of HPE StoreOnce is an area of concern where improvements are required.""It is difficult to solve issues with this solution remotely. I prefer to use the knowledge base platforms. The response time could improve.""I would like to see an emphasis placed on making data deduplication and compression more powerful.""One item I wanted to see is SSD drives as a cache, and that was, for a time, still lacking in StoreOnce, however, they have done it now. It's not available yet, however, it will be shortly.""I don't see any new features that we could want or anything that could be done along those lines. Just that we need a bigger machine, so more speed.""The solution's pricing could be improved.""While StoreOnce has many features, it needs to focus on integrating with third-party backup software solutions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We scale this product by adding licenses, which are related to capacity."
  • "The cost is monthly."
  • "The hardware platform is cost intense, so for small and mid-range, this product is not the best choice."
  • "The pricing is high compared to the competition and should be reconsidered."
  • "The solution is very good because it is easy to use and it speeds up the backup and lowers the requirement for the storage rate. It is capable of encryption, compression, and deduplication and it is fast for sending all of the data over the network because it sends only the change blocks from the client to the DD server."
  • "The solution comes with a capacity license and it is a one-time purchase. There are additional costs, such as support."
  • "Dell EMC Data Domain Boost is an expensive product. There are extra costs for support because every year, you have to renew your SLA for support, and the cost is always increasing."
  • "My company must pay approximately 10,000 USD annually, making it an expensive product."

  • "The price puts me off. It's definitely on the high side."
  • "To be honest, we were quite happy with the price, but we always want things cheaper than they are. I think for what we got, we felt that the price was quite reasonable comparing it to other products that provide that same level of functionality."
  • "There are costs for additional storage and space."
  • "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."
  • "The licensing schemes could improve in HPE StoreOnce and the price is high. They should reduce the price."
  • "I think the product is competitive in terms of pricing. Other products like the one from Dell are costlier compared to the tool."

    DD Boost software delivers an advanced level of integration with backup applications and data base utilities, enhancing performance and ease of use. Dell also provides a DD Boost File System Plug-In (BoostFS) with DD Boost for even greater application support, which enables all the benefits of DD Boost for applications that use NFS for data protection. Rather than sending all data to the system for deduplication processes, DD Boost enables the backup server or application client to send only unique data segments across the network to the system.

    HP StoreOnce Backup is a data backup solution that provides a consistent, high-performance, scale-out architecture for your entire enterprise. Reduce the amount of backup data capacity by 95 percent, and choose between powerful dedicated appliances for data centers, or flexible virtual appliances for smaller and remote offices.
