We would like to have further integration with some backup products. They have some of them already, but there could be more. We have already seen the new roadmap and a lot of our requested features are already on it. View full review »

None at the moment for the box itself. We are very happy with the current capabilities of this hardware. Hopefully, the AutoSupport can be improved to be more proactive in certain cases. View full review »
