VMware SRM Review

Testing Failover Capabilities Is Valuable, Though ​Flexibility To Choose Different PITs Would Help

What is most valuable?

  • Ease of management.
  • Testing failover capabilities.

How has it helped my organization?

Gives us the ability for true DR testing, readiness.

What needs improvement?

Flexibility to choose different PITs would be nice. Also, ability to give VMs different priority per Recovery Plan would be useful.

For how long have I used the solution?

Four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Not yet.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Not yet.

How are customer service and technical support?

Seven out of 10. I give them a seven because they don’t always get back within the SLA, and have had a few issues they took a long time to resolve.

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


How was the initial setup?

Fairly straightforward.

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

Licensing costs explode after 75 VMs.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Zerto. We felt SRM/RecoverPoint gave us more flexibility in our solution. That was five years ago though.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

v.5.5, 6
