  • "In the span of six months, maintenance is done at least twice and you are told that it is coming up, with apologies for the inconvenience. It's a distraction, and it interferes with the backup schedule."

What is our primary use case?

Pros and Cons

  • "I would like to see Microsoft Exchange DAG supported as soon as possible."

What other advice do I have?

To me, the Cohesity Cluster solution is almost complete. There are only minor things that I would like to see added to the user interface.
