Make it easier to find out how to fix things when something goes wrong. There is pretty good documentation, but sometimes it is difficult to find the right solution. When a hard drive has failed, it usually takes me quite a while to find out how to replace it. Since it is usually a very long time between occurrences, when it does happen, I have forgotten how to do it, and where I found the answers last time.  

Since there is so much storage, backing it up to another drive (e.g. before doing a major upgrade) over the LAN takes a VERY long time.

They can improve the integration with PSA systems. This functionality could be better.

The latest version of the dashboard doesn't work as good as the previous version. Sometimes we change our dashboard back to the previous version because the latest version just doesn't work as good. This is a problem - especially if we want to make integration changes.
