    It's a way faster and reliable backup software we have implemented till now. Lots of cloud backup are been initiated with the help of Rubrik. Certainly, we have certainly improved our timeframe for backup. Also, it is very consistent and the restoration of the backup is also very efficient and viable.

    Zerto

    Zerto is well suited for disaster recovery and virtual machine replication between multiple data centers. DR testing for audit or regulations is much easier with Zerto, great reporting, dashboard etc. It is not well suited for physical server replication for disaster recovery or as a primary backup solution.
    Zach Koenig | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Rubrik

    • Validates all backups against ransomware during and after backups are performed.
    • Is seamless in backing up data whether on prem or in the Cloud.
    • Support engineers are extremely knowledgeable and useful in providing guidance.
    • Integrates will with native Oracle and SQL backup processes.
    David Newaj | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zerto

    • Anyone with a large disk (VMDK) knows the issues of VMware snapshots. Most backup software is a "point in time backup" that uses snapshots. While the backup can be run multiple times per day the stress of the snapshot on the host and storage is eliminated by the continuous protection of Zerto log replication.
    • A client had a the disks on a VM go missing for some reason. We had them "flip the switch" for a real fail over and press the fail over button. The VM on our DR site started to come alive as the VM at the customer site was brought down. When the DR VM was fully up, automatic reverse replication started. The DR machine was available in a few minutes (to take into account different host hardware) for access. One the vm at both sites were in sync, we had the customer again repeat the fail over process and the DR site VM was turned off and the Production site VM was brought back on line. This was a 200 GB VM and the whole process was finished in about 3 hours.
    • Zerto also allows for "Test" fail overs that can be configured on many different functions, such as host, datastore, network and IP usage. Configuring the IPs is crucial to avoid inadvertent site cross contamination of the same VM.
    • Zerto can also retrieve files from any VM disk on the DR site without starting a VM. Very handy for retrieving files or directories.
    • Since Zerto is running continuous log replication, changes on the production VM are nearly instantaneously copied to the DR site. As with any data process, having sufficient bandwidth for "churn" peaks minimizes the delay in updating the DR site.

    Cons

    Rubrik

    • Anything Rubrik is missing can be developed with their open API.
    • It would be nicer if Rubrik had better networking options out of the box for machines being restored to a location other than their normal location.
    • Better node reporting or performance, we have had a few nodes need to be rebooted.
    Jordan Watson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zerto

    • Moving a VM from one protection group to another could be simplified.
    • I would like to see an executive-style report of recovery and testing for upper management.
    • The ability to deploy Zerto as a virtual appliance, without the need for a windows server.

    We have been very satisficed with Rubrik over the years that we have been using the product. We have seen a few minor issues with some of the upgrades that have been applied, but overall the product works and is easy to use. Our SQL DBA's love the product to manage their SQL server backups because the restores are fast and can be done at the database level.

    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

    Rubrik has a simple to use interface and day to day management is very simple yet it doesn't sacrifice flexibility. Expanding capacity as data grows is very easy and does not require downtime. Upgrading is simple and efficient. Setup and configuration are straight forward.

    Usability was the primary reason we purchased the software in the first place. We had compared it to several other software products in the same area, and it was by far the easiest to set up and use. Long-term maintenance proved to be similar, with updates driven by updates to VMware and vSphere, rather than the product itself.

    Rubrik support is hands down some of the best product support we have. They know their product and are quick to assist. Submitting support cases is easier and they are very responsive. You don't have to use Rubrik support often but when you do they have your back.

    Overall support is very good. We sometimes get pushback when asking Level 1 support to escalate to Level 2. This causes undue frustrations when you need a more knowledgeable support person to get involved. We've had to escalate to account reps a few times for this scenario. Zerto is very responsive and normally handles our requests very quickly.

    From experience the implementation was smooth and easy, like a simple plug and play format but would need coordination from your network team to be able to see the entire IT infrastructure.

    Make sure the end goal is in mind before implementing. That way results meet expectations.

    Rubrik

    Rubrik was the easiest to install and configure for our environment. The all in one solution has built in safeguards, so if part of the system fails you are not left without a backup solution. The system is robust and easy to upgrade or increase in size. The system requires very little day to day attention and integrates with ServiceNow.

    Zerto

    We started out using Backup Exec which was in service until we virtualized our environment where it didn't perform as well at the time. Then we switched to Veeam which worked well, but then as we started needing to do migrations and off-site DR, we found ourselves relying on Zerto more often.

    For my organization, the pricing model was an upfront investment for the Zerto licenses. My organization prefers to pay upfront and not deal with month-to-month or year-to-year pricing models that most companies are moving to. But for some, the investment may be more than they can afford, and would prefer the year-to-year pricing model.

    Very easy to add new 'briks' (or nodes as everyone else calls them :P) as long as the network is plugged in and configured, the briks will discuss among themselves and welcome the new comer into the cluster

    I mean, it was 6 years ago, but we were up and going with all applications synchronizing in short order. The longest tasks was getting the 30 TB of application data synchronized between the datacenters.

    Return on Investment

    Rubrik

    • This solution was comparable in price to other solutions we examined and offered features not available from some other leading backup providers.
    • This has increased the speed with which I can restore files and especially entire virtual machines (literally seconds to spin up a restore instead of often over an hour with Avamar) so less downtime for customers who need help.
    • While (thankfully) we haven't had to use it, this also offers ransomware detection and protection.
    • Single Sign-On integration allows us to use our existing 2FA to increase security.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zerto

    • Zerto is like having the best possible insurance ... it just works, and often provides the backups taken overnight that are key in recovering data/work between overnight backups.
    • Zerto easily enabled the move of primary datacenters by allowing easy failover to a secondary site, and failback to the primary site.
