We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Deduplication is the most valuable feature.""If you have a large enough storage capacity then you can take an ample amount of data.""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 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.""HPE StoreOnce has high performance.""The most valuable features are the deduplication and compression capabilities.""The solution is stable.""The scalability is very good."

"I like all the backup features in Veeam.""I have found one of the most valuable features to be the integrity of the backups.""It's very easy to work with and it's very reliable.""Its performance is fine. It supports us very well. It is able to support our policy for RTO, RPO, and other things that we need.""The most valuable feature is adaptability, where it automatically adapts to the environment that it's being installed on.""I like that the solution is very simple to install.""I think that the scalability is very good. We can't compare it.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the recuperation of the weaker machines."

Cons
"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.""The web interface, ease of use, and GUI all need to be improved.""The user interface of HPE StoreOnce should be more user-friendly. Additionally, the configuration and troubleshooting could be better.""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.""HPE StoreOnce should come with a detailed installation guide.""Cloud integration needs to be simplified.""The solution could always be less expensive.""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 solution is rather weak when it comes to database integration.""Lacks online training.""The patching can be quite difficult at times.""There should be better use of the external hard drives.""Its price is higher than other solutions and can be improved. They can also change the version of the software more often.""It would be useful if we could integrate our on-premise VM solution with the Azure workload backup from the existing console. This would assist our customers in reducing the cost of hardware.""The web interface could be more visual.""The Veeam backup application interface is application-based and not web-based."

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 tell Veeam that you're competing with, for example, NetBackup or Backup Exec, or Dell or Micro Focus then they may lower the price. They are very competitive."
  • "I don't know what the costs are for sure, but I think that it's on a yearly basis."
  • "Its price is reasonable for a big company or a big client. It is not too much. It is cheaper than VMware."
