The replication being log-based is awesome.
You can set the number of days a VM can be rolled back in case of corruption or virus infection.
Since the log files are continuously transmitted, the granularity of restores is amazing.
Files can also be extracted from the VMDK at the remote site even when the VM is off.
A new feature is the One-To-Many VPG allowing a VM to be replicated at up to three different locations, including local.View full review »

During a failover to a DR site, Zerto can automatically change the IP address of servers.
With Zerto, we were able to replicate our virtual servers to a remote DR site across a WAN connection.
The initial setup was very straightforward and easy. We were able to start replication within minutes of the initial setup.View full review »

It is difficult to manage failing over between sites if you are at the site that was impacted.View full review »
I would like to see better notifications when the sync is off for an extended length of time.View full review »
The only issue that I observed was that depending on the number of virtual machines that are being replicated, you will have to provision the appropriate bandwidth for the link that the replicated systems will traverse.View full review »
Increased granularity in how long to keep the journal would be nice.View full review »
It would be helpful if the reports can be generated periodically, on a schedule.View full review »
