It is for site-to-site replication. When something goes wrong on your site, you only get 15 minutes before it also goes wrong on your replicated site. There should be some way to be able to say that we want to restore it, but we want to restore it to the version from yesterday. It should support versioning. I would also like to see real-time scanning for advanced threat protection, more straightforward billing, and quicker turnaround on the tech support.

We need to be able to move the virtual servers and not build and then port them across. They need to improve the hypervisor.

Improvement could be made on the pricing model. It could be brought in line with the competitive ranges in the market Additional features could include more of a backup and recovery. We'd like to see the AIX operating system added into it. It's more virtual right now.

There have been issues with replication. It would be helpful if error logging was handled more effectively. When it runs, it runs well but when it doesn't run, the solution needs to make it clearer as to why and what the troubleshooting process is. All this would be possible if the error logging was streamlined a bit.
