Cons
"I would like to see better support for creating and working with archives.""The user interface, customer support, and the recovery time for the current customer query could use improvement."

More CloudEndure Disaster Recovery Cons →

"The interface is not easy to use and can be made more user-friendly.""I would like to see this solution be more scalable.""The two vCenters have to be synchronized, which sometimes gives us problems because Keberos does not tolerate more than five minutes in time difference.""What I think can be improved is the data replication aspect.""This product is not appropriate for those moving to a broader cloud footprint.""We've had configuration issues on occasion. We start to fail over, and then we have to call it off because the configuration is not right, or the data stores aren't configured correctly in the secondary data center. Oftentimes, it is just the experience level of the team, and we have to bring in the vendor to help and validate our configuration.""The solution could improve by removing some of the limitations we have been facing. There could be better integrated.""We have had an issue when some customers have traditional designs and sites. For example, on one another site, they are using hyper-converged, using VMware, or Nutanix. We have a problem with the synchronization between the storage for site to site. This is the main issue. We are adding some other tools to support the synchronization to allow the movement of the workload from site to site easily."
