Cons
Setting up the system to work with legacy equipment is a bit complex at times.The configuration wizards are still complex and hard to navigate. These should be easier to manage.I would like the possibility to back up the infrastructure and then replicate it upon on restart, without having to orchestrate the starting of the VM.

Make sure you check your backups on a regular basis. Backups do get missed with this tool, for whatever reason.I would like to see the pieces that they have put in the web only to be put into the thick client sitting on the desktop client.The way the filtering goes, if you filter on your view, there is no indication that you have made a selection.
