It is incredibly granular and I really appreciate that.The fact that we are able to test the failover of live systems during regular hours is invaluable to our organization.We are in the process of switching over our production data center and Zerto has been a true time-saver that has cost us zero downtime.The most valuable feature of Zerto is its overall flexibility, where it can be used for standard DR or you can also use it for server migrations, data center consolidations, etc.We use to use VMware replication appliances to attempt to replicate our VMs to remote locations and servers, but Zerto's one-to-many replication options with deduplication have made the process much simpler without having to constantly worry about the versions of each driver.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.

Cons
They need more documentation, awareness, and assistance.It needs to be able to integrate with other emailing systems, like Linux.In the next release, it should have direct export to tape drive abilities and NDMP support.Technical support could be improved.The capacity storage is a challenge everywhere in the backup industry. The general feedback people are coming back to about this is that there is no deduplication based on it.It would be a great improvement to be able to recover cover a VM straight to on-prem.While there really is nothing wrong with the product some small improvements in the interface could make it even easier to use.The solution announced many features two years ago, and they still have not happened, so I would hope that the next release has these ready to go.

It would also be nice if they could find a way to make it where one VM does not impact the entire journal history of the VPG.The GUI could be streamlined a bit more to enhance the administrative tasks.The setup process is time-consuming.I wouldn't mind seeing Zerto sold at a cheaper price point, although the cost is comparable to VMware SRM.The number one thing we have found we would like changed so far is the cost per VM. It would be great to get that pricing reduced.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost is a bit on the high side.I'm not sure about the price, but I think it could be lower.The pricing is middle-of-the-road compared with competing products.I think it's a fair price. It's around $36 per user, so I think it's a fair price for our customers.

I would suggest getting a dedicated, well-informed rep.Zerto is not cheap but is an invaluable asset.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.The cost per VM is a bit high.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.
