The management interface is in need of improvement. The graphical user interface (GUI) for the web management tools appears clunky, and not super intuitive. It seemed that there were some more features on the DR Series that are no longer available in the QoreStor product. We would like a better facility to back up data to removable media.

The installation could use improvement. The initial installation was a little touchy and it's not really user-installable. You have to have a connection to support to install.

They need to increase their maximum capacity. Other than that, they're doing a pretty good job.

In terms of improvement, we would like to have an Air Gap feature to prevent a virus from attaching to something. So that when we don't do a backup, we want the QoreStor to stay offline. It would be a nice feature to have.

I can only replicate into one cloud environment or what they call a Cloud Tier. This might be because of the level of my license, but I was hoping, for security of data, to be able to back up into multiple Cloud Tiers. The cloud provider I work with has facilities where I am, here in Boston, but they also have a facility in Dallas and pretty soon they're going to have a facility in London. But the current software that I have will only allow me to do one. It would be nice to have the security of knowing that, in a super-disastrous situation where we lost our data center and the cloud environment in the same facility, we would have data stored remotely in another facility across the country. It would cost me twice as much but it's not very expensive to put this relatively small amount of data into the cloud. If I had that option I would do it.
