We wanted to prove the value of protecting your hybrid cloud with HPE StoreOnce by getting some of our customers on the record. So we partnered with TechValidate, a third-party customer research platform, to conduct a HPE StoreOnce customer survey aiming to better understand how StoreOnce is helping our customers reduce cost, risk, and complexity with flash-speed data protection in the data center—as well as low-cost archive and disaster recovery in the cloud. The survey results were very impactful. From small businesses to Fortune 500 companies across all industries and geographies, we’ve heard real-world stories about how customers are putting StoreOnce to work to deliver end-to-end data protection as they evolve to hybrid cloud.
