For small to medium sided environments, it's great, or for low demand but being able to hit higher IOPS on demand.It's still entry-level compared to EqualLogic hardware but a great contender in the field.

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

Dell PowerVault

  • Tape Solution
  • Small Business Solution
  • Good for direct attached storage purposes like video security.
Joe Wilker | TrustRadius Reviewer

HPE StoreOnce

  • File uploads and querying the backup repository is quite fast, given that we have so many backups and a good retention period.
  • A free add on "HPE StoreOnce Catalyst Plugin for RMAN" was a great benefit. We saved the cost of buying an additional backup infrastructure for our databases.

Cons

Dell PowerVault

  • Maintenance is tough. Dell recommends bringing the unit down for any kind of maintenance of upgrades.
  • Internal IOPS monitoring could be greatly improved.
  • Arrays are locked down to Dell licensed disks.
Ezra Owen | TrustRadius Reviewer

HPE StoreOnce

  • For fastest performance and best dedupe, ISV software supporting Catalyst required
  • VTL capability requires more overhead and space due to aging policies, etc.
  • Use of CIFS/SMB for backups is significantly slower than Catalyst.

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.

Some of our staff have worked with Baracuda, so it was a recommended product. But after our evaluation, we decided to use StoreOnce because of the types of backup, ease of administration, and cost savings.

Return on Investment

Dell PowerVault

  • If you need a lot of disks attached to a system, PowerVault is the way to go.
  • The cost of the unit is reasonable, and you can extend the life of the unit pretty far.
Joe Wilker | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
