Pros
From a centralized system, I can manage the interface, the backup policies, and the status of the database.The initial setup is one of the most user-friendly B2B user solutions. It's good, it's easy.

The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror.This solution provides us with easy management and great vendor support.One of the most valuable features offered is double-parity RAID, which guarantees that your data will stay intact. We're also able to provision storage and monitor which ones are really consuming storage.It is good to have a unified storage where you can have block and file level protocols.The initial setup was so straightforward. It was well-documented.It is very flexible. It integrates well with the public cloud and other components, so everything can be API driven. Therefore, it is very easy to automate it.Using the built-in Snapshots and SnapMirror technology, we were able to have better working data protection locally and off-site.The storage efficiency provided a maximum savings in our storage utilization.

Cons
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.This product would be improved with the inclusion of more features to security or WORM.The product could be improved with better support for data protection.

Currently, the newest release is not HCI friendly.Dedicated storage efficiency accelerators could improve the overall performance of the system.I would like to see less latency and higher IOPS.It lacks automatic tiering, When you use data, some of it goes cold. It is not hot data, so the system should automatically move that data to the SATA, while the hot data is kept on tier-one, the SaaS or SSD drives.The only downside is in ease in management; it is not easy to use.It's not a cheap system. It is very expensive. The pricing has been ridiculous every time that we had to renew the support.We would like to have further integration with some backup products. They have some of them already, but there could be more.The AutoSupport could be improved to be more proactive in certain cases.
