I actually think that it works great for most scenarios.

Zerto Virtual Replication

Zerto is terrific at protecting individual servers and application clusters BUT it lacks the ability to control a full site recovery without manual intervention. If you have applications that require very limited downtime with almost no loss of data, then this is a great product for you. A failover acts as a reboot of the system, but you're only looking at a 10 second loss of data (even when protecting 9TB of data).

We have renewed our subscription over the course of a few years now. We used to use Backup Exec and it was tedious and difficult to obtain our backups when needed. Acronis just fits our environment style and the way we prefer to do business and use our third party software.

We really like the easy setup of this replication solution, as well as the ease of management. Not to mention, our internal IT Economist determined that the Zerto solution would provide the best ROI out of the competing solutions we analyzed. So far, his calculations have been spot on, and we have saved substantially

Usability

I give it a rating of 9 do to its ease of usability. It's ease of understanding how to setup - form - fit - and function. I have no sorrows when having to login to the console in order to setup a new backup schedule or retrieve and recover lost data.

We have only had to contact support a hand full of times. The reason for this 9 out of 10 is do to how quickly and cooperative they have been on the rare occasion we needed to chat with them about our small questions or queries with potential issues do to the nature of our business.

Depending on where you create a ticket, it can be lower priority than desired. Use the Zerto portal to create high priority tickets.

Implementation

I don't have any real key 'insights' per say except that it wasn't difficult at all, and do not be afraid to dabble in its tools and settings. It is quite intuitive with built in common sense. I cannot say enough good things about our companies experience when using this backup software.

Alternatives Considered

Much better interface and data recovery. Tech support is also much better.

Physical recoverpoint and virtual Recovperpoint for VMware are still very basic in their feature set. Physical recoverpoint requires months of planning, installation, configuration, before systems are replicated and then protected. There is no backup feature such as Zerto, which is an added benefit. And Zerto can be installed within minutes and not weeks/months from EMC. Recoverpoint for VMware only works with EMC related storage and still has a limited feature set. It has a multitude of restrictions and isn't nearly as refined as Zerto. Zerto is storage agnostic and operates on the VMware hypervisor layer (along with Hyper-V) and is an all around great solution.

Scalability

Acronis Backup7.7
Based on 26 answers
The ability to back up multiple servers from one source is a great tool to have for businesses that have equipment in different locations on the same network with a variety of software data to back up such as SQL, Exchange or a Files Server. You can decide to purchase individual server licenses as well if you would like to keep the process separate or have multiple sites where your data is housed.

Return on Investment

  • Data safety.
  • Data recovery in case of system failure.
  • Systematic backups. You can make a schedule and automate the software to stick to it instead of making ad hoc backups manually.

  • Zerto had an immediate positive ROI because we avoided having to spend the professional services to setup EMC recoverpoint, and the continuing premium of the EMC product and support for later years.
