We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"This solution gives me the full insight without having to use other products, metrics, or reporting tools.""It has significantly reduced the amount of manual work required to manage your backup operations. We're going from an on-prem to a non-on-prem, we're all doing nonsolutions. So we really can't compare it against anything else.""It's taken our backup from being a full-time job to being when you need it, set it up. Our users could be empowered to access their own data backups. Which means we can alleviate a lot of the administration from the backup administrator.""There's no impact on the endpoint. It runs in the background and it's something that you install and then forget about.""The compression and deduplication are great for optimizing bandwidth and speed. I don't have to worry about it or think about it, and, because it's a SaaS solution, I don't have to worry about the storage size.""In terms of the speed of backup, it operates seamlessly, so I'd rate it as excellent... with my daily use and workload, quite honestly I don't even notice when it backs up.""Integration with Active Directory and the Azure platform make it a complete solution.""It's very easy to set up the storage across all platforms. This allows us to be dynamic and change on-the-fly."

"The solution is very easy to use.""They're moving a lot of their workload to cloud and aiming for a seamlessly integrated product.""It is a very stable product and very scalable.""The most useful thing is that it provides a snapshot of your environment in about 15 minutes. It is stable, and it always works. It is also scalable and easy to set up."

"It has enabled DR protection for virtual appliances with minimal administrator time.""The ability to fully test your entire environment without actually performing a failover is invaluable.""Implementing this solution has given us sandboxing and the ability to move VMs.""We now have the ability to replicate critical data to a secure, off-site location that can be brought back in seconds if needed.""The ability to have a RPO of seconds has enabled us to restore data to just before an incident has occurred, which certainly saves a lot of time and money.""The ability to perform DR testing to ensure data integrity is critical.""I really like how you can test the failover as often as you need.""The ease of failover and test environments has proven invaluable."

Cons
"I would like to see some of the code execute a little bit better when I add new licenses and assign licenses to users. I'd like to see that information update a little quicker.""The navigation of it needs improvement in terms of the UX. The product itself, it works as expected. It's all user experience and user interface improvements that could be made and it could be made a little more consumer-friendly.""I would like to see more customizable reports. I have reports going right now, but the daily report, for example, shows something like 40 jobs that ran when there are just a few endpoints on there. I'd like to just know if the endpoint was successfully backed up, not how many times. More customizable reports would be nice to have.""The setup was a little bit difficult for a non-IT person like me. My OneDrive is protected by multifactor authentication, and to get the backup to begin behind that multifactor authentication took a little bit of almost customized support, even though I was following the instructions and the videos. That process could have been easier.""There is room for improvement in the Knowledge Base and error reporting. I would like to see best practices in the Knowledge Base, and have the ability to diagnose errors without contacting support."

More Metallic Cons »

"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.""It could include more of a backup and recovery.""We need to be able to move the virtual servers and not build and then port them across. They need to improve the hypervisor.""It is for site-to-site replication. When something goes wrong on your site, you only get 15 minutes before it also goes wrong on your replicated site. There should be some way to be able to say that we want to restore it, but we want to restore it to the version from yesterday. It should support versioning. I would also like to see real-time scanning for advanced threat protection, more straightforward billing, and quicker turnaround on the tech support."

More Azure Site Recovery Cons »

"It would be helpful if the reports can be generated periodically, on a schedule.""There needs to be more flexibility in the licensing.""The backup functions are in need of improvement.""The email alerts can be excessive, so better control over frequency or resolution may be a worthwhile improvement.""We have had issues with licensing, where the license we've been given by Zerto support doesn't include VSS replication, which was a pain at the time.""Increased granularity in how long to keep the journal would be nice.""I think Zerto could do better with size planning because it would be nice to analyze a server for a week and give an estimate on sizing the Journal.""I would like to see better notifications when the sync is off for an extended length of time."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I looked at this at the beginning of the year and I don't remember what the prices were for all the other services, but I thought that Metallic's was fair. It was also highly rated, which was even more important than cost because I need a reliable, secure, backup method."

"It should have more straightforward billing. The billing was what got funky. It was really cheap. We would pay based on the usage. We paid around $225 a month for site-to-site replication."

More Azure Site Recovery Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The solution is very cost-effective and very easy to set-up but does not compromise on features.""While we find the twenty-five VM license somewhat inflexible, the actual setup costs are minimal as the product is so easy to install.""You are getting what you pay for, as this is a solution that requires minimal management after it is configured.""We found that in an event that was massive enough to cause an entire cluster to go offline we would be happy with our core services up and running.""The cost is not dirt cheap but also is not terrible.""The cost per VM is a bit high.""You need to figure out how many critical servers and applications you have in your environment so you will know how many Zerto licenses to buy.""Zerto is not cheap but is an invaluable asset."
