It is good hardware/software to do VMWare backup, very reliable and convenient device. Hyper-V backup may be less appropriate to do due to specific software needs.

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.

  • 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.

Support from Quantum was okay, they performed FW upgrade and replaced few faulty disks without any problem. Some old-style connections and requirements from them produced additional loads on our IT team.

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

The only aleternative looked at prior to the DXi was ExGrid, while both are great options the DXi offered a little more versatility and the support has been terrific.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise
  • 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.
