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.

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.

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.

An integrated encryption would allow for faster initial install and connection to the remote cloud site.
Their offsite backup is a bit clunky, but it will probably improve.

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.

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.

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

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

I would like them to add a VM host replication option. Being able to replicate host configuration between sites would be a huge benefit.
