"The web interface, ease of use, and GUI all need to be improved.""The GUI and its user-friendliness have some room for improvement.""The repository should have an extension to connect to the cloud and deposit the backups.""The solution should continue to refine its integration capabilities. I also see they are starting to use cloud integration as well, which is good, but they should do more to integrate with it.""I would like to see an emphasis placed on making data deduplication and compression more powerful.""The solution's pricing could be improved.""The solution would be improved if it could also be used as a data store for VMware.""The appliance doesn't have the global deduplication, it has StoreOnce deduplication. It does not deduplicate across the appliance, it will deduplicate in one particular store. With the global deduplication, I could store more data."
