Cons
We cannot backup Sun Micro systems. They are not currently supported.When we manage the box physically, we don't have as much control as we do when we manage from the cloud. The best management is from the cloud.I would like to see the Live Boot feature extended to Hyper-V machines, in addition to VMware machines.Some features like CIFS are not supported that would help speed and flexibility.I would like to see the automatic backup of critical applications to the cloud.The solution needs fine-grained backup capabilities to service individual users. But this is a minor issue considering all that the product does.It is not always stable.

The product lacks some security features that would make it more stand-alone and integrated.They should reduce the CPC cost to customers. The product is becoming very expensive.The licensing model was the biggest concern for our company, but the poor support after the initial implementation is of equal concern.The pricing could be better, but it's still not too expensive.The firmware upgrades could be simplified. I'm in the process of struggling to upgrade right now.We have had deduplication and replication issues. When we used another backup software we noticed that it didn't have the same issues.We are not able to deal directly with the OEM we have to go to their partners in Nigeria.The pricing model needs to be improved.

Pricing and Cost Advice
You don't need to buy an extra license or agent. With one box, you have licenses for any amount of devices that you want to backed up for whatever is backed up.You have two options, which we have. We pay for it bi-monthly. Then, you can purchase the project hours and support annually.The price of the five-year contract was approximately three million Rupees ($42,000 USD).Low, fixed cost with great savings.

This is one of the more expensive backup solutions on the market.There are many options in the pricing structure which can cause some confusion and necessitate the purchase of additional licensing.In Naira it was twenty-five or twenty-seven million (approximately $75,000 USD) for the implementation and maintenance cost for three years.Pricing is related to size. A lower range solution might be about $33,000. My customers use higher range versions with a price of around $100,000. That's the price for both the hardware and software.It is expensive, but the performance and deduplication cover for the cost.
