What is most valuable?

One of the valuable features is failure restores.

What needs improvement?

Improvement could be made on the pricing model. It could be brought in line with the competitive ranges in the market Additional features could include more of a backup and recovery. We'd like to see the AIX operating system added into it… more »

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

There are different components in pricing and for each and every component you have to check the box and you have to look for options - check if they have a front end or back end kind of licensing, those are different types of licensing… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this product an eight out of 10.

What is most valuable?

The solution is very easy to use. The approach the solution takes to data recovery is very good. We can fail-over from production and the disaster recovery aspect of the solution is quite seamless. There are a few configurations that need to happen, however, once it's up it works quite well.

What needs improvement?

There have been issues with replication. It would be helpful if error logging was handled more effectively. When it runs, it runs well but when it doesn't run, the solution needs to make it clearer as to why and what the troubleshooting process is. All this would be possible if the error logging was streamlined a bit.

What other advice do I have?

We're a partner as well as a customer. We would definitely recommend the product. I would caution, or highlight rather, that if anyone is collecting resources they need to confirm that they're all configuring it correctly so that it doesn't generate unexpected costs because of a context that may be incorrect. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

We haven't really found any of the features to be valuable. It's around five years behind other market leaders. We prefer to use VMware products for site recovery software.

What needs improvement?

We need to be able to move the virtual servers and not build and then port them across. They need to improve the hypervisor.

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

We use VMware Site Recovery Manager.

What other advice do I have?

In the next release, I would like to see better block-level recovery. It is key. Bare metal recovery and block-level recovery. I would rate Azure Site Recovery a four out of ten. If you start from scratch, it's fine.
