Zerto Primary Use Case

Russell Lynch
Systems Specialist at a insurance company with 51-200 employees
Disaster Recovery and quick file recovery. We have used Zerto to recover from Ransomware three times. Between the attacks we have recovered over 2 million files. We have never paid a ransome. Our users were only affected just under two hours with the attacks, majority of the time is actually figuring out in the office which pc actually had the crypto locker program running.

We use Zerto to keep a replica copy of the core servers we have running at our backup site. In the case of an outage, we are able to flip over to our backup location. Zerto keeps these servers up to date within seconds and in the case of an outage at our core data center, we can flip over services with little to no data loss. View full review »
Mark McCully
Manager, Infrastructure at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We use Zerto for disaster recovery of our tier 1 applications from our primary data center to our secondary data center. We have also used Zerto to successfully perform server migrations from one site to another for data center moves and company acquisitions. Our administrators love the product and it has been proven to be easier to use than VMware SRM which we were using before going with Zerto. View full review »

Real-time replication for our Disaster Recovery site, which is currently hosted in another on-premise site but will shortly be moving to a Data Center in the Cloud. I have also used this solution to do point-in-time restores of Exchange mailbox items and to check updates from Microsoft. View full review »

We use Zerto to protect our staff information against ransomware and is outlined in our disaster recovery plan. We have a DR site that we failover to if anything happens at our primary data center. We have only our core services, that we could not live without, being protected. View full review »

We were able to replace most of VMware SRM with this solution. It allows us to failover individual machines or application clusters with ease. The one thing that it does not do nicely is a full site failover. We have never needed that aspect though (only for testing). View full review »
Tim Lillis
Sr. System Engineer at a non-tech company with 501-1,000 employees
We primarily use Zerto for our critical applications and infrastructure to allow immediate failover at our DR site. We licensed our critical applications and database servers and standard backup the rest. In order to increase uptime, we replicate our entire Active Directory infrastructure as well.

Tim Kovars
Sr. Systems Engineer at Quarles & Brady LLP
We primarily use this solution for disaster recovery. The initial sync was from Pure to Compellent, and DR with disparate storage was great. Once we identified our critical servers, vetted the Live and Test Failover, and got the necessary configuration at our DR site, we are now able to perform tests in a safe bubble. View full review »

We use Zerto at our remote locations as a backup solution in environments where we don't have the infrastructure for redundancy. It allows us to use two HPE DL380 servers as stand-alone VMware hosts and replicate the VMs without needing shared storage. View full review »
Amit BArnawal
Manager - IT Infrastructure and Resiliency at a Consumer Goods with 5,001-10,000 employees
Our primary use case for Zerto was to enable replication at our DR site for virtual appliances and automation of the failover - failback process. This also gets utilized for recovery at our DR site at different timestamps using the journal history. This solution is very light, with zero-touch deployment and very enhanced dashboards.

Cloud-based disaster recovery. However, do your homework on your provider. There are several options besides Azure and AWS that don't have their surprise charges. Be sure to check them out. View full review »

In our case, we used Zerto Replicator mainly for DRP (Disaster Recovery Plan), but also for testing. View full review »

We use the solution for DR failover/testing on our DR site. We're a Windows/VMware environment and replicate 25 virtual machines from our primary data center to our disaster recovery site. The solution allows us to perform live failovers without shutting down our production systems. View full review »

Virtual server replication, as well as a level of backup, to our disaster recovery site. View full review »
Stephen Fuller
Senior Operations Engineer at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Our primary use for this solution is DR Replication to a separate data centre. We use VMware at both sites. We're currently replicating around eighty VMs from our primary data centre in London to our secondary data centre in Beccles. Most of these are SQL servers with the VSS agent installed.
