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… more »

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… more »

What needs improvement?

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

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

I recommend using the CL licensing mode.

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.

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… more »

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 is most valuable?

There are two features that are very good. One is that it doesn't use a lot of bandwidth. The other is that you can recover all the way up to a certain particular moment.

What needs improvement?

The solution normally supports only specific types and amounts of storage. If it could be increased to support much larger amounts or a wider range, it could fetch a bigger market. If the solution could work with other storage solutions, it would be better. I would like them to add automation… more »

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

The solution isn't too expensive. There are no other fees above licensing. Once you buy the license, because the license is attached to the storage that you are replicating, it's a one-off price.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the product. It's good, especially for those who want to do replication and don't have a lot of money. It's a very good product and it uses very little bandwidth. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
