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.

I think that larger environments with a higher percentage of physical systems that require backup along side the virutalization environment sticking with a single backup/archive solution such as Spectrum Protect with Spectrum Protect for VE is still the most efficient use of administrators' time and energy.For small shops that are looking for ease of use - this is a perfect fit.

  • 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

HPE StoreOnce

  • Could be more user-friendly when deploying.
  • Cost is as friendly as Pure Storage Array.
  • HPE does well support this technology.
Victor Padro | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus

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

Return on Investment

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.
Philip Sellers | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus

  • Cloud backup can be expensive and slow
