The two key features for AssureStor are hypervisor based replication and the automation for failover, testing and failback. As a cloud service provider we are always looking at how we can reduce risk for our customers, the ability to provide... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Before we took on Zerto our DRaaS offering was based on snapshot based backup’s with an automated restore process to our cloud hypervisors. This was a good service but we could only offer RPO’s as low as 1 hour and even then this was subject... more»

What needs improvement?

Backup capability as it is limited and not as streamlined as it could be. At present Zerto delivers backup protection by making duplicate copies of VM disks to a defined storage location (but this is limited on the schedule and retention). In... more»

What is most valuable?

Zerto is packed full of useful features. The main feature is easy to manage, you will not need to be in Zerto day to day as it runs flawless. Zerto has a plugin to integrate seamlessly into VMware VSphere tab. I would highlight is the fact... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Zerto was able to use an EMC PROD SAN, and a HP DR SAN with no issues or compatibility problems which allowed us to avoid buying expensive hardware for a DR site. Zerto has allowed us to feel comfortable our data is being replicated, and the... more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see Zerto come up with an emergency line for support. Support does get back to you quickly, but when your heart is racing because something happened the calmness of a pro on the other end would be helpful. The reports also... more»

What is most valuable?

Managing the system is easy and reliable, you can choose any VM you want to replicate to your DR Site in Combination with other VM's. Testing a DR is easy and well reported.

How has it helped my organization?

Any business unit can define it's needs for SLA and the IT department is able to follow these needs with less management and overhead. If a problem occurs (like ransomware or db errors) IT department is able to roll Back to the right point... more»

What needs improvement?

Migration of complex VMware and Hyper-V solution. Using Zerto to replicate to azure and S3. DR Solutions with less management and less space. Licensing of DR Site is not necessary until activation of VM. That are very good news for Db users.

What is most valuable?

* The replication being log-based is awesome. * The VMDK can be preloaded to the remote site or allowed to come across the WAN, then the logs just keep flowing. * You can set the number of days a VM can be rolled back in case of corruption or... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The setup is easier than most products, and for us as a cloud partner, once a customer is trained to create VPGs, they are good to go.

What needs improvement?

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.

What is most valuable?

After working with the product for about 6 months, the fact that you cannot only replicate virtual machines to another location, but the fact the you can group and configure various boot orders, with time delays is a valuable feature. There... more»

How has it helped my organization?

At this point we are not fully using the product for disaster recovery due to the fact we are not 100% virtualized. The hope is that within the next two years, it will greatly simplify our DR testing since there is a "failover test" option.... more»

What needs improvement?

The one area I see a need for improvement is supposedly on the roadmap, which is to be able to replicate to multiple locations.
