RecoverPoint combines vSphere Replication with RecoverPoint for storage arrays
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.

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.

Our site disaster recovery plan was simplified by scripting the failover procedure.

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.

Deployments with VNX & VPLEX are pretty simple. The problem came into play when we began using RecoverPoint with VMAX.

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 overly complicated due to the infrastructure you're using it in.
