Arcserve Backup

Easy to create a backup job and restore once configured correctly but it does not run smoothly if the data storage is not correctly allocated.

If you are looking for a backup infrastructure which is efficient and compatible for both file system and block level backup, then HPE StoreOnce is a great choice. It's easy to configure and easy to manage. We didn't have to hire a separate storage expert to set up StoreOnce for us. The HPE team helped our system admins and it was a easy to configure.

  • Backups to HPE StoreOnce device is very efficient. This is particularly because we are using all SSD (flash ) devices in our HPE StoreOnce infrastructure.
  • The compaction ratio with HPE StoreOnce is amazing which reduces our total storage footprint by upto 95%.
  • It supports both block storage and file system storage. This is especially beneficial since we wanted one backup infrastructure for both our application and database backups.

Cons

  • File System Archive is limited without stubbing
  • Virtual Standby is limited to Windows only

  • We had a little trouble sending backups of physical servers using SMBv1 protocol to SMBv2 CIFS shares. We had to implement a work around but it would have been nice if StoreOnce could be smart enough to take care of SMB version automatically.
  • There is no native Catalyst Store replication from one StoreOnce device to another StoreOnce. The replication has to be handled by the backup software which is backing up to one StoreOnce device. This puts an extra overhead on the source.
  • HPE StoreOnce command line is a little complicated for beginners. It takes a little while to get familiar with how to leverage it.

Arcserve UDP provides our organization lots of benefits and it is much more than a simple backup and restore solution. We use it for cross platform DR, storage agnostic replications, DR solution instead of VMware SRM and more.

My team who are currently administering HPE StoreOnce do not come from a storage background. We still didn't had to struggle much configuring and using HPE StoreOnce. Of course, HPE team was very helpful in smooth technology transition. For critical errors, we already have phone home feature enabled and HPE support team has been excellent and their response time in dealing with technical errors/incidents.

We had couple of incidents so far and HPE support team was very proactive through the process until the incident was closed satisfactorily.

Alternatives Considered

Arcserve UDP is fast, reducing our backup window from +20 hours to less than an hour. Arcserve UDP also has proven itself when restoring databases and files to to the same location or alternate locations quickly and efficiently. We have also successfully created "synthetic" Full backup tapes from the current backup sets

NetApp is a great product and very well established in market. But HPE StoreOnce features like scalability using disk based duplication that lowers the backup footprint. It is very well coupled with HPE Recovery Manager Central provides backup protection and backup efficiency. We were also offered a nice discount while choosing HPE StoreOnce.

Return on Investment

  • Deploying Arcserve UDP with the "copy-to-tape" option allowed us to reuse well over 50 LTO5 tapes used by our previous backup solution. Further, we extended data retention on site (maintaining monthly backups on disk) as well as extending off site data retention on tape.

  • We are pleased to use HPE StoreOnce for our backup infrastructure. We did not had to hire a separate storage folks and this has greatly cut down on our cost.
  • HPE StoreOnce is very fast and efficient. We have not had any complaints of backups going slow.
