We have been using CR at work for over a year now and it is working great. There is no point of using the DR-feature since it is way slower and doesnt support incremental backups.

RE: Building from master branch - is that "latest" channel?
To answer @Pechkin000 original question: If you build yourself from the sources you get the LATEST. The appliance is build from the exact same sources, but is then tested for a while before it is realeased.
At work we're using the appliance, at home I am using "from sources" and to be honest I havent had any issues with my "from sources"-version.
All tho, if you are running an enterprise-shop you should really really know what you are doing if you decide to go with the "from sources"-version since this is pretty much untested.
I dont understand why @mropen is being so dramatic - Did you have any issues with the "from sources"-version?
