Enables the rolling back of volume states to a point in time.

How has it helped my organization?

A traditional way of data protection is to perform backups. With a backup solution, we can implement Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs). However, we are not really sure how to reach Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs), especially when those RTOs have minimal values.

With RecoverPoint, we can "instantly mount" an image Point in Time in case of a problem. The RTO was improved, for sure.

What is most valuable?

Continuous Data Protection and Remote Data Protection are the most valuable features:

  • Continuous Data Protection: Enables the rolling back of volume states to a point in time within seconds.
  • Remote Data Protection: Permits the replication of environments in a synchronous or asynchronous way with minimal bandwidth consumption.

What needs improvement?

RecoverPoint journals consume a lot of storage to obtain a large RPO.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this product for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We did not encounter any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not encounter any scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not called support for three years. The technical documentation is good, so I would give it a rating of 9/10. I am not sure that technical support is perfect.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used to deploy Oracle Data Guard for replicating Oracle, but RecoverPoint can replicate other environments because it acts on the storage side.

How was the initial setup?

We had an easy setup. Just remember to size your storage well.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I recommend using the CL licensing mode.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Other replication solutions are specific to products (Data Guard for Oracle, VMware replicator for VMware), but RecoverPoint can replicate multiple products.

What other advice do I have?

RecoverPoint acts on a block level and it needs an EMC Splitter to work. If your storage arrays are not EMC, then you need to virtualize your storage via VPLEX before acquiring RecoverPoint.

What is our primary use case?

It can replicate data from a distant location and it can scan it as well. It has continuous data replication with almost no data loss.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using EMC RecoverPoint Continuous Remote Replication for two and a half years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's not for small operations. I don't think it needs improvement. It can replicate a lot of data storage.

How are customer service and technical support?

We offer support in Bangladesh and are a service provider. I have contacted technical support for their help. Their support is good. They are smart. They communicate well and are easy to understand. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not complex.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a ten out of ten. 

It could use an external application on top of its recover points. Other hypervisors should be integrated with this system. Other hypervisors should be able to get the benefits of this solution.
