Product details and specifications

This is a 60 day trial version of the HPE StoreOnce VSA. It has the same features as the sold StoreOnce VSA products enabling it to be evaluated for up to 60 days. The StoreOnce VSA delivers a high efficiency StoreOnce deduplicating and replicating backup target as a virtual appliance.

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.

This 60 day evaluation enables from 1TB up to 50TB backup data capacity. If you want to continue to use the StoreOnce VSA after the 60 day trial, the trial StoreOnce VSA can be simply upgraded by purchasing a license for 4TB, 10TB, 20TB, 32TB and 50TB. Just make sure the purchased license is equal or bigger capacity than the configured storage from the 60 day trial version. At the end of the 60 day evaluation, StoreOnce VSA becomes read only and application of a paid license unlocks it for full use.
