Its capability to schedule, write and configure the recovery and scheduled steps, such that you don't have to come in and start manually trying to recover the entire machine. You just push a button to recover the VMware and everything is done.It's easy to use and the interface is quite simple.The most valuable feature is the integration with our Nutanix environment.The replication is the solution's most valuable feature. If we have some issues on the VM in the main site we can migrate it to another site automatically.Combined with RecoverPoint, it offers zero RPO and zero RTO.It made the DR process a lot faster and easier for recovery after we were familiar with the product operation.

Cons
In the next release of this software, I would like to see options that help to decrease the bandwidth required, such as compressing the data.I would like to see integration with EMC NetWorker in the next release.

What I think can be improved is the data replication aspect.Cost is definitely an area where the product could be improved.You need a lot of knowledge to work with the interface because it is not really easy to use, and it would be great if the dashboard were simplified.If you have a failover case, you need to work on it manually. It would be helpful if this could be automated. It would simplify things.I would like to see better integration with other storage solutions. I would hope to see that within the next two or three years.One thing which is lacking from the SRM is reporting.SRM may hit some OS issues related to IP changes, but they are usually OS related, especially in the 2008 realm.
