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.

Solarwinds Backup is ideal for individuals looking to keep a consistent backup of devices in their environment. We used it primarily for networking equipment. It is easy to set up, as it is one of the steps available when adding a new device to solarwinds. It is probably not an ideal product to use for long-term (1 month+) backups.

Pros
Hewlett Packard Enterprise
  • 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.

  • Backup Reporting: Email alerts, and a great, easy to read Dashboard with detailed error logs and an easy to search Solarwinds FAQ for a lot of them.
  • Restores: So far I have restored files, full VMs, and VMs to other hardware, and so far it has not only been flawless, but so flexible that I can't imagine going back to any other software.

  • Restore complete settings: IP settings, the setting of CPU/Memory for VMs, etc. would decrease management during a restore.
  • Individual file backup: more granular settings for backup.
  • Change of device name after setup: at times, computer names change after restore so it would be great to rename the device name.
  • Option to recovery security key.

Cove is able to cover all aspects of backup in a single package. From the same dashboard I can check servers, workstations, and even Office 365. Cove is a much better solution in terms of overall management for a company such as ours. It also provides integration options with N-Able's RMM and Take Control solutions. This allows us to offer our customers with a full service suite in a single package.

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.

  • There has been NO negative impact to out ROI, but it definitely helps our bottom line. Affordable pricing and solid support make Solarwinds Backup almost a no brainer. That interprets to a growing ROI.
  • The best thing to happen to our ROI is the growth brought in by very happy clients.
