One issue I had with this program, was that I couldn't get it to back up my Linux virtual machines. So I had to exclude them from that backup. The reason for this was because the Linux virtual machine was a semantic messaging gate.

The solution should do better marketing for the product. I only heard of it because a colleague at another company told me about it. The solution needs a dashboard or some form of central control from which you can manage all backups. The solution could use a mobile version. The solution should offer push notifications to stakeholders rather than just emails when the backup is done. It should offer something that if X job isn't done, then Y gets a notification; basically a way of escalating notifications if something isn't getting done.
