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.

Good for daily operational backups and their replications and areas like VM backup, when it comes to resting the backups in a cloud environment especially features like BYOL is an edge to IBM over its near competitors. On the other hand, a lot of scopes to improve to have native/application-aware backups for modern applications like AI and microservices.

  • 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.

  • Incorporation of more touchless agents for physical servers.
  • Direct offload to tape - instead of requiring Spectrum Protect.

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus doesn't allow taking backup of the Meditech HIMS application, due to the unique nature of the database and its functionality. As it's a special case, the vendor supports only a few fully integrated backup solutions which resulted in using Bridgehead as a trustable backup option specific to the application.

Return on Investment
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.
