Pros
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.

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.Since the log files are continuously transmitted, the granularity of restores is amazing.Files can also be extracted from the VMDK at the remote site even when the VM is off.A new feature is the One-To-Many VPG allowing a VM to be replicated at up to three different locations, including local.VMware VM replication over narrow WAN bandwidth.

Cons
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.

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.The only issue that I observed was that depending on the number of virtual machines that are being replicated, you will have to provision the appropriate bandwidth for the link that the replicated systems will traverse.Migration of complex VMware and Hyper-V solution. Using Zerto to replicate to azure and S3.I would like to see a couple of details regarding awareness of VM events coming outside of ZVR.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
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.
