Product details and specifications

This is an information only page. The evaluation product you are looking for has been moved here.


This is a zero cost version of HPE StoreOnce VSA. It has all the features of the paid for products and delivers the same benefits of backup data deduplication in a virtual appliance. It is ideal to protect small amounts of non-critical data and for extended evaluation.

You create NAS shares, virtual tape libraries or use the backup and recovery optimized StoreOnce Catalyst interface for efficient operation with all leading backup and recovery software applications. Backup data security is assured with data at rest encryption and secure erase to prevent reading of expired backup data. For added protection, you can deploy multiple StoreOnce VSAs so backup data can be moved off site using deduplication-optimized replication over a LAN or WAN.

The 1TB capacity of the free StoreOnce VSA will enable storage of, typically, 20TB of backup data depending on how much space saving is achieved by the StoreOnce deduplication and compression. If more backup storage capacity is required, the free StoreOnce VSA can be simply upgraded by purchasing a license for 4TB, 10TB, 20TB, 32TB or 50TB.
