What is most valuable?

* Incrementals forever * SnapDiff functionality * VE The ability to do dedupe in the product is nice to have. We currently have a VTL appliance with dedupe functionality. We will be exploring the SP features in this area shortly.

What needs improvement?

Easier configuration of some of the products, e.g., VE comes to mind. Perhaps some better documentation, which I believe was better in the past.
