Zerto Review

Zerto just works


What is most valuable?

Near-zero RPO, granular selection of individual VMs and the very simple setup and management.

How has it helped my organization?

Reduced DR strategy documentation and procedures.

What needs improvement?

Physical servers would be a nice enhancement. I would also like to see the backup portion really enhanced further.

For how long have I used the solution?

3 Years +

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Deployment is so easy, so no.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Excellent

Technical Support:

Excellent

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

Yes. The product(s) I was using for replication were not as efficient and could not provide nearly as low of an RPO as Zerto.

How was the initial setup?

Easy

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Veeam replication, SRM and array-based.

What other advice do I have?

I work for a data center solutions company and DR was always the toughest challenge. I have recommended numerous solutions to my customers over the years but when we stumbled upon Zerto 4 years ago it has become our standard recommendation in these projects. It's easy to setup and manage but best of all...it just works as expected.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: I work for a Zerto partner but have used this product in numerous projects and have much direct experience with it.

Good summary. I totally agree that Zerto is very simple to install and maintain. Creating groups of protected VMs is easy with the newly enhanced work flow. Anyone looking to replicate VMware or Hyper-V machines should give Zerto a good look.
