What do you like most about Zerto?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
The mobile application is very useful as a real-time monitoring, reporting tool. When asked the status of our machine backup and recovery ability, an easy answer is to display the status on the real-time application or browser. The Zerto Analytics tool helps predict future storage needs by tracking trends in space, journal size, and I/O rate. These are reportable statistics making quantifiable tracking easy and accurate. Having a web interface simplifies access by other system administrators.
It is incredibly granular and I really appreciate that.
The fact that we are able to test the failover of live systems during regular hours is invaluable to our organization.
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.
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.
The ease of failover and test environments has proven invaluable.
I really like how you can test the failover as often as you need.
The ability to perform DR testing to ensure data integrity is critical.
The ability to have a RPO of seconds has enabled us to restore data to just before an incident has occurred, which certainly saves a lot of time and money.
We now have the ability to replicate critical data to a secure, off-site location that can be brought back in seconds if needed.
Implementing this solution has given us sandboxing and the ability to move VMs.
The ability to fully test your entire environment without actually performing a failover is invaluable.
It has enabled DR protection for virtual appliances with minimal administrator time.
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.
