We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
Work with your local representative on running a live test to see if the solution fulfills your needs.
I would suggest getting a dedicated, well-informed rep. I'm sure they all have great training but always hold your rep accountable. Ask lots of questions because there are no stupid questions.
Zerto is not cheap but is an invaluable asset. If you have the need for what Zerto can do for you then the cost really isn't a factor.
It is good to do a full Disaster Recovery plan for your organization and doing a BCP plan as well. You need to figure out how many critical servers and applications you have in your environment so you will know how many Zerto licenses to buy, etc.
The cost per VM is a bit high.
The cost is not dirt cheap but also is not terrible.
I don't remember it being cheap. We started out slow, which was a good call. We found that in an event that was massive enough to cause an entire cluster to go offline we would be happy with our core services up and running.
You are getting what you pay for, as this is a solution that requires minimal management after it is configured.
While we find the twenty-five VM license somewhat inflexible, the actual setup costs are minimal as the product is so easy to install.
The solution is very cost-effective and very easy to set-up but does not compromise on features. The features are much enhanced compared to any other DC-DR solution.
Check your cloud providers. You don't have to host the DR side yourself. Also, look at folks other than Azure and AWS. The hidden/surprise costs will knock your socks off.
The cost is steep, but once you experience recovering a single server along with its granular restore times, you will see that the cost is justified.
We believe the pricing, setup costs, and licensing are easy to understand. The pricing seems very reasonable.
