Cons
"Basically, how it works is that you have a single local drive, and then you have a cloud backup. It'd be nice if you could rotate the single local backup drive. As of now, you can't."

More Hornetsecurity Altaro VM Backup Cons →

"StorageCraft ShadowProtect can improve by making one console that can control backups of all desktops and servers in one place. Additionally, the recovery process of the backups is very slow and could improve. It's very slow when we went to recover a complete disc but to recover one file is very fast.""A lot of their new technologies are not very good.""Licensing is an area that needs improvement.""I think that the price could still be a bit cheaper and I do not like that they have been purchased by Arcserve."
