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

The ability to restore in a catastrophic event is priceless, since every company must use a backup solution of some sort.We are able to take backups on a regular interval and restore data/VMs as we choose making the process work as advertised.The ability to create a replica of all virtual machines is a great feature.We have been able to set up a failover site that has replicas of our critical VMs.You can have it setup and running within a few minutes.

During a failover to a DR site, Zerto can automatically change the IP address of servers.With Zerto, we were able to replicate our virtual servers to a remote DR site across a WAN connection.The initial setup was very straightforward and easy. We were able to start replication within minutes of the initial setup.Journaling allows us to leverage Zerto's journal for sub-minute recoveries, instead of having to wait for the storage array to replicate.Failover using Zerto is simply a one-button click, and it does everything else in restoring the VMs at a different datacenter (recovery site).Zerto is an excellent solution for cloud-based environments, but for DIY clients who have another site to recover their systems it also works well.The replication being log-based is awesome.You can set the number of days a VM can be rolled back in case of corruption or virus infection.

The upgrade process is a bit dated and could use some changes.UI could use some upgrades. The UI is basic, but functional.​It would be great if the product could be expanded to support other virtual technologies.

I would like them to add a VM host replication option. Being able to replicate host configuration between sites would be a huge benefit.The full site recovery is not up to SRM standards.It is difficult to manage failing over between sites if you are at the site that was impacted.Adding or changing VPGs (Virtual Protection Groups) may require restarting replication.An integrated encryption would allow for faster initial install and connection to the remote cloud site.Their offsite backup is a bit clunky, but it will probably improve.It needs to support more public cloud.It works only for a virtual platform, it does not support bare metal.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
We believe the pricing, setup costs, and licensing are easy to understand. The pricing seems very reasonable.It's a little bit expensive.Licensing is VM based so you can buy packages or single VM. Price is not low but the power of application is high, so you will get your money back.Licensing is based on the number of VMs to replicate. The first thing should be to get the number of VMs to replicate based on your business needs.Zerto’s licensing model has changed a bit over the last year and they are in alignment with others. It is pretty simple and more economical.Pricing depends on your future growth. Start small and then scale up.
