What is most valuable?

What needs improvement?

The solution does not have multi-tenant capabilities. It's one of the reasons that we ultimately decided to move away from the solution. The solution lacks cloud usability. If it did, it would be much better for us. The solution is not easy… more »

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

In comparison to other solutions, like Zerto, the pricing is quite high. It's not the cheapest solution.

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

We did previously use a VM application and Zerto. However, we haven't used anything else. We cannot use EMC RecoverPoint when we use cross-hypervisor platforms, like Hyper-V to VMware, VMware to Hyper-V, et cetera. We can, however, use it… more »

What other advice do I have?

We are a service provider and we used to use EMC RecoverPoint. However, we couldn't sell it for our infrastructure because it does not have multi-tenant capabilities. It is just for enterprises. That's why we dropped it. I would rate the… more »

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is excellent. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated other solutions that have the same features, but we have been with EMC for a long time and there was no difference for us.
