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

"The most important features are SnapVault, Snapshots, and SnapMirror.""The file sharing feature is most valuable.""NetApp FAS is highly stable and reliable, especially under a heavy load. That is what I like most about the NetApp.""For us, the greatest aspect of the solution is the fact that it just runs. It is amazingly resilient. That's very important to us, because we are basically, with some exceptions, have a 24/7 operation.""Can use both SAN and NAS at the same time.""Flexible and reliable storage solution with multiple features such as cloning, replication, and deduplication. Data migration can be done without any performance implications on the production systems.""Reliable storage solution with an easy setup. It has high availability and makes single file restoration easy. It also has good stability and scalability.""Data consolidation and visualization."

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

More HPE StoreOnce Cons →

"Interfacing with the cloud environment could be better. I want to be able to move some cloud volume and integrate it seamlessly with my home on-premise storage. Sometimes I have issues with port permissions. NetApp probably needs to improve more on the integration side from on-premise to the cloud.""I would like to see NetApp add incident support.""We're supposed to have used NetApp FAS Series for replication, but then one of the nodes failed, and then it's taken us some time to bring it up.""The NetApp FAS Series is not as high-performing and is not as fast. Its speed needs improvement, but this could only be done if it's an all-flash solution.""Its licensing cost can be improved.""We are not able to connect to the support of NetApp from Sudan. We have to go through many agents for support, which makes it difficult.""Technical support needs to be improved, as there are no longer partners in our country.""The solution could do more than just data."
