Data Protector

I believe it is very well suited for the Unix/Linux brands but once you get into the Windows side of things there are much better options out there. The other problem is that the data is in a format that only works with HP Data Protector and cannot be migrated to another system should things go that direction in the future. Once you are locked into HP Data Protector you are truly locked in

HPE StoreOnce

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.

Pros

Data Protector

  • Easy to install and set up cell manager, deploy clients and configure backup devices. Integration options for databases and virtual environments makes backup and restore of these systems easier through the GUI.
  • Scheduling options allow the user to set specific times for backups of a host or group them together with the advance scheduling option and set priorities of which systems get access to backup devices.
  • Licensing options are tiered and can scale from a very small environment to a larger one when needed.

HPE StoreOnce

  • We really like the deduplication feature of HPE StoreOnce. It helps reduce storage footprint by 1:3 to 1:10 depending on type of files being stored.
  • It's easy to manage files on HPE StoreOnce servers using command line options.
  • We use Veeam Backup Server software to manage our backups on HPE StoreOnce.

Cons

Data Protector

  • Tech support - every person I spoke with had a different idea on how to fix a problem. Many times they caused the problem resulting in double or triple work.

  • Could be more user-friendly when deploying.
  • Cost is as friendly as Pure Storage Array.

It was just not a good fit for our organization. We have an EMC SAN, Data Domain backup storage, and VMWare. Without any other HP software or hardware in our environment I do not see the need to continue using a product that is not well integrated with our other brands

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

Data Protector

We liked that HP Data Protector could go back to a specific recovery date where IBM TSM could not, in certain cases.

Return on Investment

Data Protector

  • Same solution for 17+ years provides stable environment and builds in house expertise saving business on training.
  • Licensing structure provides cost savings to business.
  • Ease of use for operators provides quick response when restores are needed by the business.

HPE StoreOnce

  • While not completely eliminating tape, it has relegated the use of tape to monthly and annual backups for compliance. It has reduced the recurring expense of tape media.
  • It has increased the length of the retention period because of its efficiency in storing backups.
  • The online backup repositories are now replicated to the secondary datacenter, a capability not possible with tapes.
