Its capability to schedule, write and configure the recovery and scheduled steps, such that you don't have to come in and start manually trying to recover the entire machine. You just push a button to recover the VMware and everything is done.

You need a lot of knowledge to work with the interface because it is not really easy to use, and it would be great if the dashboard were simplified.

If you have a failover case, you need to work on it manually. It would be helpful if this could be automated. It would simplify things.
