There are some questions as to how safely they are storing backup data.The amount of updates which are being released. Updates should be limited to two or three a year, focusing more on quality instead of a rushed bug release.No appliance update notifications.It would be great to have the job throttle/limit the max number of backups on a single ESXi host.It could be a little more customizable.The ability to run just differentials without pulling the full on your archive.There are a few quirks where the GUI, agent, and back-end are not precisely meshed.Network-based storage stability could be improved.

It is very expensive. It's a trust based licensing. So that's an ethical challenge.

No comment.You should be aware how much the monthly costs are to use, what the initial costs for hardware are, and what the options to expand are, if needed.Pricing model constantly changes.We found that the cost of Unitrends was about the same as the Dell DR6300. We liked the fact that the Unitrends appliance was all-in-one.The cost of Unitrends definitely draws you in. The licensing is all included in the appliance, which is a great incentive.Talk with the sales guys. They can work with you on the best package.Initial pricing is competitive. Renewal pricing is steep, so make sure to project costs for the lifetime of the appliance(s).When you purchase initially, get into the program which gives replacement hardware for free when you renew your support agreement.
