Additionally, should improve the functions that already exist in the solution rather than add new ones.""There could be some changes done to the action page to simplify it.""Reporting is not on par.

More Acronis Backup Cloud Cons →

"The AWS Backup backend reporting is a major area that needs improvement. We would be very excited if we can see some reporting, such as trends. We do understand that there are reports available for S3 Bucket, in which the AWS backend stores the data. However, if we can receive holistic reporting, then it would be very helpful for us.""It requires a lot of time to connect the snapshot, identify the files, and restore a single file manually.""AWS Backup could improve because you cannot use Glacier or anything but EFS."
