Pros:

  • Easy to setup and operate
  • Free 60 day trial helps you test out the service and become familiar with its operation
  • Granular Recovery Technology allows easy restoration of accidentally deleted files, emails, or documents.
  • VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual server data protection that is easy to manage
  • Integrated online backup for flexible off-site data protection

Cons:

  • Some of the menus are a bit densely packed, such as the Job Setup screens
  • This is not a product for single server environments (there is a separate version for Microsoft’s Small Business Server that is more appropriate)
