Zerto Review

The top dog of DR IMO.


What is most valuable?

The ease of daily operations. This program takes almost no interaction on a daily basis.

How has it helped my organization?

Zerto has given us a sense of security. To know that we can move our production data to our DR site in minutes lets me sleep much better at night.

What needs improvement?

Support for Hyper-V which is on the way.

For how long have I used the solution?

In production for almost 1 year now.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Absolutely none. I was replicating my first VPG in less than an hour.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Only things that I have caused myself.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Started with 50 vms today protecting almost 300 and I have had no issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I would give it an 8/10. Alot of customer service is handled through back and forth emails but once you get someone on a phone call and screen sharing the level goes to a 10/10.

Technical Support:

9/10

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

We tried out SRM but chose Zerto because of the ease of use.

How was the initial setup?

Very straightforward and I had a tech with me the whole way.

What about the implementation team?

Implemented in-house and once again it was a PAINLESS process.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

SRM and went with Zerto so we would not have to use SAN-to-SAN replication.

What other advice do I have?

The best thing is that all you need is storage and vcenter in two locations and you have met all requirements to install and protect your vm's.
