More Unitrends Pros »

"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
"If the interface could be less complex, it is would be great.""I would like to see the real-time replication process improved, and a zero RPO feature added.""It seems like Unitrends moved away from enterprise customer engagement and moved more towards the managed service provider market.""I would like to see more storage options for the free version."

More Unitrends 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
"Their licensing depended on the number of CPUs you had.""With respect to cost, my advice is to get what you need."

More Unitrends 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."
