Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Dell EMC RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The solution could improve by being more easier to use. However, once you have used it for a while it becomes easier. Additionally, there could be better support and compatibility with management by having a command-line interface. This would be beneficial for the customers.
It can have better integration. It would be good if, in addition to VMware VM, it can also support other hypervisors. I also want to see support for Oracle databases. As of now, it supports only SQL and Exchange. It would be good to also support other databases.
The price of this product could be lower. I would like to have the HTML 5 interface working because it is currently not functioning with the VMware environment. This means that you have to use the old UIs to work with it.
The solution does not have multi-tenant capabilities. It's one of the reasons that we ultimately decided to move away from the solution. The solution lacks cloud usability. If it did, it would be much better for us. The solution is not easy to use. It's actually quite hard. If it could be simplified it might be better for the end user.
This product is not as easy to use as some other solutions. In the future, I would like to see this solution to be easier to use and deploy. More customers would be attracted to this solution if it were cheaper in price. It would be helpful if this solution also worked on other types of SAS products. There are many types of these products available and it is not possible to replicate all of them. If would be great to have a unique solution for replicating data across all storage. In the next release of this software, I would like to see options that help to decrease the bandwidth required, such as compressing the data.
The operation of this solution in a production environment data center can be improved. I would like to see integration with EMC NetWorker in the next release.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
