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.

PowerProtect DD (formerly Dell EMC Data Domain)

When used as a backup target PowerProtect DD models offer incredible density and can efficiently replicate to another cloud-based or offsite unit. Most complaints about these have been addressed in software over the years and they are now a intuitive and easily managed backup system. You are not buying a Swiss army knife, you are getting a machine designed for a purpose, use it for that and you will not be disappointed. While they have the ability to serve as a CIFS server, they are not a filer and lack many of the features inherent to filers and are a poor substitute.

Pros

HPE StoreOnce

  • 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.

PowerProtect DD (formerly Dell EMC Data Domain)

  • It writes backups quickly. DDBoost add-on is very useful as well for improving backup speeds.
  • DD is very efficient in its use of capacity. It dedupes and compresses very well.
  • It spans to large capacity amounts.

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

PowerProtect DD (formerly Dell EMC Data Domain)

  • It can be expensive to implement, especially when used in conjunction with other applications/hardware such as Avamar.
  • The TCO can be high, especially when it needs its storage expanded.
  • Recovery speeds can be slow (compared to other solutions) for when recovery is time sensitive.

DD has performed flawlessly for almost 10 years as our backup/recovery storage with offsite replication. Given its track record and great support from EMC, we're unlikely to look elsewhere any time soon.

Customer support has had some ups and downs here. We've had several issues with EMC support before and during the acquisition by Dell, but in the last 18 months support has been top notch. Quick and knowledgeable help is but a chat away, or they will call you back so you don't have to wait on hold. The team supporting us is responsive and is quick to assist with any request or issue.

HPE StoreOnce is a great value for money.

We selected Data Domain due to its integration with our backup software. The Data Domain works well for what we need it to do.

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

PowerProtect DD (formerly Dell EMC Data Domain)

  • We were able to immediately discontinue our remote tape storage and TBU maintenance.
  • Reduced backup footprint in the data center.
  • It is costly to expand so buy it with a purpose.
