Federated Deduplication Across the Enterprise with a Single Deduplication Technology - StoreOnce

Deduplicate at the application source, at the backup server or at the target appliance. Using StoreOnce, deduplicate where it makes sense for your business, unlike with other technology vendors where their limitations mandate.

Save time and money using your backup application to control backup data copies movement between StoreOnce Catalyst using a single console that enables different retention times for different copies.

Utilize cost-effective, low-bandwidth links with deduplication optimized copies. Move data concurrently from the StoreOnce VSA in small and remote sites and/or backup over the WAN to one or more regional offices or data centers.

Benefit from a unified deduplication solution. Build an optimized solution using the StoreOnce Catalyst technology delivered in dedicated appliances, virtual appliances, HPE Data Protector and other software.

Seamless Integration of Virtual and Physical Environments – All Managed from a Single Console

StoreOnce VSA enables StoreOnce to be used in virtual server environments and to leverage the flexibility and availability of virtual environments.

Same proven graphical interface (GUI) used to manage the HPE StoreOnce Backup appliances in physical and virtual environments, providing a consistent experience for enterprise-wide deployments.

Flexible to use, HPE StoreOnce VSA can be configured in Ethernet environments with StoreOnce Catalyst, VTL and CIFS backup targets. For Fibre Channel integration or the ability to write to NFS interfaces you will need a StoreOnce Backup hardware appliance.

Support New Styles of IT Data Protection

StoreOnce VSA can deliver a flexible backup target for service providers and organizations with an ITaaS (IT as a service) infrastructure.

Service providers can rapidly stand-up the StoreOnce VSA and retire it again when the backup capacity is no longer needed to regain the resources.

In multi-tenant environments, one StoreOnce VSA per tenant provides security of backup data between tenants.
