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

"I personally find Veritas NetBackup Applicance hassle-free.""The reporting is very good compared to other tools.""It has a lot of very good features. The virtual tape library (VTL) feature is most valuable. Overall, it is easy to use.""It has been our go-to product for backup.""It is easy to use and the performance is good.""The solution has a very easy-to-navigate user interface.""There are a lot of new features that operate to protect the data from ransomware attacks. They launched the Veritas/Appliances to protect our data. Veritas has been doing its job well.""The initial setup gets easier the more you do it."

Cons
"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 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 solution could always be less expensive.""The web interface, ease of use, and GUI all need to be improved.""HPE StoreOnce should come with a detailed installation guide.""Cloud integration needs to be simplified.""The user interface of HPE StoreOnce should be more user-friendly. Additionally, the configuration and troubleshooting could be better.""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 desirability of appliance solutions is dwindling in the marketplace.""It's an expensive solution.""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.""Feature-wise, it is quite good, but it is very costly. Its price has gone up quite significantly over the years, and that makes people like us look at alternatives.""The price needs to be improved because it is really expensive.""The reporting feature can be improved.""In terms of implementing the solution, it's quite technical. You need to be knowledgable in order to pull off a successful deployment.""Veritas NetBackup Appliance can improve by having a more direct connection to the cloud. It should have the technology to be able to directly communicate with the cloud."

We specifically took 10 TB for very critical offsite backups. We can also increase it in blocks if needed."
