What are the best aspects of this product?
I like the VMWare backup with GLR for tracking. I have to say that the CIFS backup process is quick especially if you use NDMP accelerator node for huge amount of data. De-duplication is great when you pair it with data domain for storage as backup target. The process of replication is simple and robust.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
In my opinion, this is not easy solution to work with. It requires lot of configuration pieces and plugins in order to make various backup types. When using SWL cluster you will face with some bugs and this requires some work. Also, the exchange and Sharepoint need some additional licensing and add on software so you can do the GLR. The reporting tools are not sufficient. In order to track and report backup trends it requires some addition Data Protection Advisor. In addition, the program is pricy.
