The deduplication engine. Right now, we're at about 10.5 to 11 times deduplication of our backup data.You can store backups for a while.The flexibility. Being able to virtualize it, port it wherever I like, test my backups, test my DR capabilities whenever I like without impacting anybody.It's pretty simple. Once you set it, it goes; and then the idea of being able to get it to the cloud very quickly. It's kind of a set-it-forget-it.Most importantly is having that island into that datacenter, and being able to address things in the same console. Thus, it is irrelevant where it's stored.Being able to move data seamlessly from one-premise to the cloud (Azure). It works great. The backup solution is perfect for us.

Cons
I would like more integration with security. We need to show the value of the product in regards to handling security. For example, how it handles current malware or viruses. IBM should be more proactive in this direction.

I really want to partner it with the SnapCenter. We haven't implemented that yet. We're upgrading all of our stuff to the ONTAP 9, which you had to have.More than a 500 volume limit. At the moment, it only supports up to 500 volumes for SnapMirror and that's a problem. We've got 750, so a larger limit for volume replicas for SnapMirror.What could be helpful is different user base authentication so then maybe we could allow different customers to point to a single appliance and they only see the backups and things that they have.There are some bits it could do better. With tighter integration maybe with Veeam, or something like that, it'd be really good.More capacity with the basic model of the AltaVault would probably help out.
