What do you think of Dell EMC RecoverPoint Continuous Remote Replication?

What is our primary use case?

Disaster recovery for more than 50 VMs and a few MS SQL DBs: MS SQL cluster, web app, NLB, etc.

How has it helped my organization?

I worked as an IT manager and IT consultant. I have had many experiences with EMC and RecoverPoint.  It has improved RTO and RPO. 

What is most valuable?

Bookmark, Test and SRM integration. It is amazing because it is very easy to test with many alternative bookmarks.

What needs improvement?

I am now working for another vendor. I am following as an individual and waiting for block replication with VirtualBox. 

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do you think of Dell EMC RecoverPoint Continuous Remote Replication?

The history of RecoverPoint is an interesting one – first off it was available via a host-based (i.e. Windows) or Fabric-based (i.e. Brocade) splitter and used dedicated physical appliances. Things got really interesting when EMC built the splitter technology into their arrays (VNX, VMAX and VPLEX) as it became much simpler and more cost effective to deploy. The next phase of its evolution was to create a virtual appliance that can be deployed more cost effectively that the physical appliances – initially these were even free, but now there is a nominal charge for them. The next logical progression of the technology is to go back to the beginning and build new host splitters, but for hypervisors rather than operating systems. The great news is that VMware has just introduced a…

What is most valuable?

* Replication over IP and Replication over FC providing CDP - Continuous Data Protection * Multi-site Protection is a very useful feature when having more than two Datacenters

How has it helped my organization?

We can replicate Data between Data Centers synchronously or asynchronously. We use it to provide Disaster and Recovery copies and migrate Data between Datacenters.

What needs improvement?

Currently the product does not support cascaded replication, only "Y" replication. For example. It is possible replicate data from 3 locations and keep three copies of data Site A -> Site B and Site A… more »

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

Initial investment setup costs about $33K to protect three sites including 5 Storages. Day-to-day costs about $2 due to vendor maintenance contracts.

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

No, I've never used other solutions based on appliance integrated with Storage providing continuous data protection.

What other advice do I have?

Look for new available features when product is integrated with EMC VPLEX to provide Metropoint Protection using a Three Datacenter Layout.

What is most valuable?

Main feature we use is remote (async) data replication, over IP, over a distance approx 300 kms.

How has it helped my organization?

* Data replication with Recoverpoint over a long distance without FC is simple and delivers a cost reduction (ethernet DWDM is cheaper than fiber) * Our site disaster recovery plan was simplified by scripting the failover procedure. *… more »

What needs improvement?

I am not familiar with improvements in Recoverpoint v4.xx, so I don't know exactly what the latest improvements are.

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

Yes, EMC Mirrorview /A and /S. Because of relocation of our datacenters the distance between them increased enormously because of the large distance and the availability of Ethernet only between the sites.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is very positive. There is a good plug-in VMWare vCenter for SRM, stretched Windows clusters, local replication feature, granular level in Point In Time Copies.

What is most valuable?

Complete out of band block replication with EMC storage arrays (such as VNX, VMAX, & VPLEX). It's seamless integration into VMware's Site Recovery Manager is very useful.

How has it helped my organization?

We have been able to achieve a very low RTO & RPO with near real-time replication policies & adequately sized journals for a limited recovery time requirement to bring systems online as well as a… more »

What needs improvement?

The new Gen5 appliances have adopted the Unisphere management interface & it is written for Adobe Flash, which in my experience, is very slow & makes administration cumbersome at times. The Unisphere… more »

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

We were not using any other replication technology at that time but we are currently looking at Zerto as an alternative to RecoverPoint due to cost constraints & easibility of use of the Zerto… more »

What other advice do I have?

Make 100% sure it meets your needs & integrates properly. Otherwise you could end up paying additional licensing fees to make it work & you could also be put in a situation where the deployment is… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate others before RecoverPoint. It was a package deal with our VNX purchases.

What is Dell EMC RecoverPoint Continuous Remote Replication?

EMC RecoverPoint Continuous Remote Replication provides continuous data protection with multiple recovery points to restore applications instantly to a specific point in time. It is used to protect applications with bidirectional synchronous and asynchronous replication and digital video recorder (DVR)-like recovery in physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures.
