There are too many reboots and the software requires constant updating.I haven't had a good experience with technical support. It takes them a very long time to resolve issues.It's not easy to integrate. We have to read a lot of documentation in order to configure the solution.We are able to do direct backups, but analyzing the logs is not straightforward.The deduplication needs improvement and it could use better integration.The software also isn't user-friendly like Convault or Rubrik. The solution errors and management aren't so good in comparison.We are looking forward to better stability in future versions.We would like support for tape space reclaim, using either the same or another pool.

The pricing of this solution is very good.It's approximate, but I believe we pay around $20-30,000 a month in licensing.You have to buy the deduplication software separately from the license.Low cost is key.
