Great Replication Software

2019-09-24

Very positive, support is helpful and quick to respond.

Pros

The GUI is easy to understand and monitor and the replication compression is impressive!

Cons

At the moment we would have to restore an entire VM to get data, I can't get granular with SQL or Exchange VMs.

Surprisingly easy to setup and easy to use with the one pane of glass interface.

2017-12-07

We are able to have real time replication of our most important virtual machines to our DR site.

Pros

The fail over test procedure also is extremely easy to use and is good practice to help you get your feet wet so that it becomes second nature to you in case of an emergency.

Cons

If your company does not have a lot of virtual machines or have much in the way of virtual infrastructure then it is not feasible to use this software, as the minimum license is for 25 virtual machines. Also the multi site replication can not be restricted to selected virtual machines, it must apply to the complete license pack that you have, which can be somewhat pricey.

Good solution for VM Real-time Replication and Backup

2019-02-11

Pros

User friendly GUI, Easy deployment and configuration, Replication Monitoring Option

Cons

Sometime it's hard to troubleshoot because of limitation to log into Zerto agents (which deployed in VM Hosts).

very good replication software

2019-03-08

Consistent with my experience with new vendors in the market, this vendor is very easy to work with and is always available to help us be successful.

Pros

It is easy to get started and provides a very nice overview of replication status for the data center(s) where the product is installed and used.

Cons

One of my main observations is the length of time it takes to complete replication in a large environment - this is not a complaint as it does the job well but I would like to see if it can be done faster.

Great replication tool for DR and Backups

2020-03-12

It's a great software for any large organization. We use it both as a backup utility and DR site. Both sites work flawlessly without any issues. Support is a little hard to get but they are quite fast at responding, just not with the correct tech.

Pros

I love the journal feature and you can set that to your own SLA.

Cons

When you failover a VPG, it automatically saves the servers as a virtual app rather than individual servers.

Zerto is an ingenious software solution for a whole host of BC/DR, migration, and acquisition uses.

2018-02-09

Pros

You're able to lay all of the prep work ahead of time and with just a few clicks, perform a failover or a move from one cloud infrastructure to another.

Cons

I will say that these growing pains are being alleviated by the acquisition of season management and capable talent within the company.

Unparalled quality and ease of use

2018-07-10

Peace of mind in knowing that my servers are well protected. I found this out during the pilot testing of the software. We had a server that was luckily protected during the pilot and I was able to bring it back to production within minutes versus trying to restore it from backup and wasting hours.

Pros

It conserves bandwidth while allowing a very large amount of data to be protected.

Cons

While it can recover single servers and application groups exceedingly well, it does not do site recovery nearly as well. So if you want to fail over an entire site, you'll need to make sure you know which VPGs you want over first and then have a manual plan to fail them over.

Zerto is great for Disaster recovery if site goes down you can bring it up at DR site.

2018-02-06

Provided a DR solution for a system we provide

Pros

You can setup multiple different groups (VPGs) to allow recovery of dependent systems at the same time. You can also run test failover where it does a test and see if you get any errors without actually failing over your machines.

Cons

This would improve the functionality as well as speed since one of our servers is a SQL server and has tons of backup data.

Powerful VM fail over tool for keeping your systems up

2018-09-19

Pros

Zerto just works. It keeps our clients systems up and running with very little (if any) effect on the end users if a system fails over.

Cons

The user interface can be a little confusing unless you are in there daily.

Zerto is the best DR solution

2019-02-13

Zerto software and their amazing support team have allowed my company to bring in tens of thousands of dollars in new revenue by making it easy to migrate clients from Hyper-V or VMware to our VMware infrastructure.

Pros

I like the ease of use, the AMAZING support team, and the fact that I can use this product for site to site migrations of new clients from their old datacenters.

Cons

Also, I wish we had more back-end control (there are some tasks that require Zerto Support intervention when rare issues arise).

Best VM replication software available.

2019-12-03

Great product easy to setup and user.

Pros

The software does not rely on a storage vendor or specific storage technology. Works with any storage you have connected to Vmware or Hyper V.

Cons

The backup solution built into the new version needs some work. I am guessing by the next version or two this will be a complete solution for DR and backup.

Pros

Easy to setup and configure.

Zerto is the best tool for replication and disaster recovery

2020-01-30

We are able to consolidate and collapse several datacenters down to two and make sure our Production side is protected as possible.

Pros

The install is very easy and the GUI is very intuitive.

Cons

There is not much that we don't like about the software. It has done everything that we needed it to do.

No need to renew my SRM license now

2018-02-06

Fairly using moving and replication to offsite VM's in DR.

Pros

It works, and its really easy. Its literally a couple clicks, and it replicates over to the DR.

Cons

Support has no direct number, and most of the support staff are overseas. I don't love that. You have to open a ticket in your portal, and wait for a call. At roughly a grand plus PER licensed VM, that is certainly an area that could be improved. Also I think the minimum VM's you can license is 15.
