Dell EMC RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines Review

Stable and straightforward to install, and offers point-in-time recovery

What is our primary use case?

I use RecoverPoint for VMs to for critical backups.

What is most valuable?

It is a point-in-time restore, which is quite handy.

What needs improvement?

The price of this product could be lower.

I would like to have the HTML 5 interface working because it is currently not functioning with the VMware environment. This means that you have to use the old UIs to work with it.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with RecoverPoint for the past six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The way I use it, we haven't had to scale. However, it shouldn't be a problem.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to RecoverPoint, we used VMware's replication functionality. We also have Veeam Backup and Replication deployed in the environment.

All of these products do the same thing and it's just a matter of what features you like. I use RecoverPoint for VM for my production-critical system because it gives you general electives for the journals and the point-in-time recovery.

For less critical backups, I used VMware or Veeam.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is an expensive product.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this product is working well but at the same time, there is always room for improvement.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
