In terms of stability, I've found it to be very stable. I've walked into the server room when it was at 60 degrees Celcius, and it was still running fine.The most valuable features are the Self-Service, and the ability to search the data.

Cons
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.

The price of this solution is very high.The licensing packet is confusing. If Veritas could do a better job of clarifying it, that would be helpful.Expanding is difficult because if I want to add, for example, a terabyte of data, then I have to buy a disk shelf and it will cost me a lot.Maybe they could improve reporting capabilities and predictions.The user interface needs to be improved.In terms of improvements, I think the pricing model could be improved. They charge you by port, for every port that you have even if you're not using all of them.I would like to be able to create a restore task that can be scheduled so that the same restore action will be performed automatically.Better integration with non-Microsoft products would be an improvement.
