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

Cons
It is not always easy to update this solution to the newer version, so the update process needs to be improved.The predictability of the solution needs improvement. Sometimes, if it's doing something at the back end, it may go slow. Today, the backup completion took four hours, but sometimes it can do the backup in 30 minutes or an hour. With solutions like NetBackup, I can predict to a much higher degree of certainty how long something will take to complete.I've found a lot of difficulties on the initial setup and especially in terms of credentials. We really need a Window OS. It doesn't like the domain admin account. it's a primary permission issue.An area that this solution could be improved would be with the licensing.Updating and configuration can sometimes be a little bit of a hassel, but once you know the product better it is easy to use.I am not very impressed by the technical support I received when I had an issue.The stability of this solution needs to be improved.Maybe in the future, they could do something better with the user interface and the performance, but so far it's a really good, efficient solution.

I would like to see better notifications when the sync is off for an extended length of time.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.Increased granularity in how long to keep the journal would be nice.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.The email alerts can be excessive, so better control over frequency or resolution may be a worthwhile improvement.The backup functions are in need of improvement.There needs to be more flexibility in the licensing.It would be helpful if the reports can be generated periodically, on a schedule.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We purchased a three-year license, and I think that the prices are ok.There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees, and pricing can be a disadvantage or a weakness for this solution.Pricing is based on license packaging and duration. Longer term licenses are less per year and license packages also offer a discount.Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.

The cost is not dirt cheap but also is not terrible.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.You are getting what you pay for, as this is a solution that requires minimal management after it is configured.While we find the twenty-five VM license somewhat inflexible, the actual setup costs are minimal as the product is so easy to install.The solution is very cost-effective and very easy to set-up but does not compromise on features.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.
