Zerto Virtual Replication Review
Zert0 accomplishes everything advertised and much more...


Valuable Features

Leveraging 'Move' to perform VC-to-VC migrations with little downtime.

Improvements to My Organization

Has simplified our DR/BC strategy and allows us to quickly protect Production applications that require low RPO's. We've done several fail-over tests with documented results. We feel Zert0 will only compliment our SDDC strategy.

Use of Solution

POC'd the product for 2 months and purchased in March of 2014.

Deployment Issues

None.. Implementation was simple and quick. We were replicating vms in a matter of hours.

Stability Issues

Nothing to date

Scalability Issues

No

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Customer service has been excellent

Technical Support:

Technical support has been exceptional

Previous Solutions

We've used traditional LUN based replication which can be challenging in any virtual environment. Zert0 gave us the granularity to replicate VMDKs to any target datastore.

Initial Setup

Setup was simple and straightforward. We encountered no issues.

Implementation Team

We spent weeks doing a POC and literally installed and re-installed multiple times to see if there were any impacts on our infrastructure. There were none and it worked as advertised.

ROI

N/A

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

We had capacity so our only setup costs were building a couple of VMs to install the Zert0 Consoles on and licensing of the product. Minimal when compared to SRM, Recover Point and Storage.

Other Solutions Considered

We did a POC with SRM and researched Recover Point extensively.

Other Advice

I feel because the product is so simplistic yet extremely robust and effective management may perceive Zert0 as not being Enterprise worthy when in reality, it is. Bottom line, its a great product that brings standardization and simplicity to DR/BC.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
