We are in the process of switching over our production data center and Zerto has been a true time-saver that has cost us zero downtime.

The most valuable feature of Zerto is its overall flexibility, where it can be used for standard DR or you can also use it for server migrations, data center consolidations, etc.

The ability to fully test your entire environment without actually performing a failover is invaluable.

I really like how you can test the failover as often as you need.

Journaling allows us to leverage Zerto's journal for sub-minute recoveries, instead of having to wait for the storage array to replicate.

We use to use VMware replication appliances to attempt to replicate our VMs to remote locations and servers, but Zerto's one-to-many replication options with deduplication have made the process much simpler without having to constantly worry about the versions of each driver.

It would also be nice if they could find a way to make it where one VM does not impact the entire journal history of the VPG.

I wouldn't mind seeing Zerto sold at a cheaper price point, although the cost is comparable to VMware SRM.

There needs to be more flexibility in the licensing.

I think Zerto could do better with size planning because it would be nice to analyze a server for a week and give an estimate on sizing the Journal.

The full site recovery is not up to SRM standards.
It is difficult to manage failing over between sites if you are at the site that was impacted.

I would like to see better notifications when the sync is off for an extended length of time.

Increased granularity in how long to keep the journal would be nice.

The number one thing we have found we would like changed so far is the cost per VM. It would be great to get that pricing reduced.

It would be helpful if the reports can be generated periodically, on a schedule.
