Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"The product’s data retention is very good."
"We also really benefit from the GUI capabilities."
"The important feature is compression and duplication. It has a good compression ratio and is very stable."
"It results in more efficient storage utilization, cutting capital expenditure in half."
"I'm impressed with their support structure, call availability, understanding, flexibility in scheduling remote sessions, and accommodating customer timeframes."
"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 scalability is very good."
"It is a good solution. It covers most of the applications."
"It supports multiple, heterogeneous platforms."

"The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features."
"It is essential. We can't do without it."
"The solution has been very good over the years at fine-tuning various aspects of the product so that it is continuously made better."
"Unauthorized people cannot log in and execute commands."


"The solution could always be less expensive."
"In terms of areas for improvement, I believe HPE StoreOnce could learn from competitors like Dell's Data Domain and ExtraHop in refining its architecture."
"HPE StoreOnce Backup to Disk (BTD) is not a good backup solution for NAS devices. It does not have a dual controller, so if one controller fails, the entire system will go down."
"The latency is a bit high."
"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 web interface, ease of use, and GUI all need to be improved."
"HPE StoreOnce needs to be made cheaper than products from Dell and Veeam."
"Its integration with Nutanix and technical support can be improved."
"This solution would benefit from a more friendly, web-based interface."
"The solution costs too much."
"I would advise not to use this tool. I think between the licensing issues and the older solution mentality it is not a great solution."
"They currently have the Java concept and it should be less intensive and take less load."
"The reporting of the backups could be better."
"Maybe they could add more cloud solutions."
"The product is not able to keep up with other competitors in the market."
