Product details and specifications

The StoreOnce Demo Tool is a standalone tool to demonstrate StoreOnce functionality. All the StoreOnce features can be demonstrated and small (up to 100 MB) backups can be run to further illustrate operation in conjunction with a backup application.

The Demo Tool is based on StoreOnce VSA and is designed to run on laptops to enable demonstrations to be run where there is no available StoreOnce System or no network connection to a remote StoreOnce System. For flexibility the Demo Tool can be run on VMware bare metal or hosted hypervisor products. To enable it to run on a laptop, the resources required are kept to a minimum – it will run with 8 GB RAM, although 16 GB is recommended.

No license is needs to be added. The built-in demo license is used to activate all StoreOnce features. This activation will last for 1 year.

The StoreOnce VSA Demo Tool can be used in conjunction with a backup, or similar, applications to demonstrate an end-to-end data protection solution. For this, if needed, VMware settings can be set to ‘bridged’ for access across the network.
