Cons
It could include more of a backup and recovery.When it runs, it runs well but when it doesn't run, the solution needs to make it clearer as to why and what the troubleshooting process is. All this would be possible if the error logging was streamlined a bit.

The interface is not easy to use and can be made more user-friendly.The configuration process could be improved.There are many functionality problems with the product currently. It is also slow and unstable.What I think can be improved is the data replication aspect.Cost is definitely an area where the product could be improved.You need a lot of knowledge to work with the interface because it is not really easy to use, and it would be great if the dashboard were simplified.If you have a failover case, you need to work on it manually. It would be helpful if this could be automated. It would simplify things.I would like to see better integration with other storage solutions. I would hope to see that within the next two or three years.
