Areas that need improvement would be the support for recovery in the physical environment. This includes a bare-metal restore, backing up a physical server, and then restoring the same on a physical server. Currently, it has to be on a virtual server. In the next release, I would like to see bare-metal restore and a version that is comparable to solutions such as Acronis, where they have less but similar features at a lower cost.

There are quite a few ways the product can be improved, actually. In terms of recovery the solution is very good, but still can be better. Specifically, they can improve in the area of ease of recovery and improve the speed. Also, the kind of platforms they support should be enhanced. Like now, they have recently started supporting SAP S/4HANA, SAP MaxDB, and SAP MongoDB. This is good, but there are more platforms that can be supported. Obviously this will take time before the platform support for more products appears in the solution. But I think this is one important addition that they need to make.

Integration with snap services of disk vendors (they only support IBM and Pure right now). Actifio uses the native backup capabilities of each application (like VADP for VMware), but could benefit from integrating these capabilities with storage subsystems for the best of both worlds.
