Cons
"While the product does support various databases, the company needs to make more of an effort to support N-minus-one compatibility.""Areas that need improvement would be the support for recovery in the physical environment."

"I have an issue with SnapCenter because sometimes a VM cannot be backed up... The way SnapCenter works is that it makes a backup of all the VMs and then it removes all the old backups. If one VM cannot be backed up for some reason, it has already created a new backup for all the VMs but it cannot remove the old backups. It ends up creating so many backups in VMware and it will cause a performance problem if the condition is not fixed."
