EMC's RecoverPoint is a data replication and protection option.https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/rt/iN/F9UIOAW8NP9T.pngEMC Recoverpoint - PhysicalRecoverpoint is used in conjuction with VMWare SRM in the protection of production SAP instances necessary for the business to function. It addresses the need to replicate data from one location to another for disaster recovery. The utility it provides can be viewed as a DVR, to roll back data that has been protected from the production site and to test that data, before approving it and sending it back to production or back to DR.,EMC recoverpoint does it's core functions of DVR like replication extremely well. It integrates perfectly with VMware vsphere and SRM and is relatively simple to configure. EMC recoverpoint handles failover and failback very well, either manually or through the SRM interface. EMC recoverpoint physical is relatively easy to run once installed and configured!!,The Journal space that recoverpoint needs may need to be adjusted and so a lot of space is needed at both sites, production or DR, to accommodate for longer periods of DVR like recording. Failover testing may run out of capacity for long periods of time. Recoverpoint requires clustering of nodes that can only be done by EMC support. Recoverpoint requires that splitter devices exist for all protected arrays. VNX, VMAX, and XIO all have various degrees of integration of the splitter hardware and lose features, with VNX being the strongest in featureset.,6,Recoverpoint allowed the Business to have DR capabilities across a multitude of EMC arrays. It allowed the centralization of VM's to be protected across environments both locally as well as remotely. Recoverpoint can bring RTO down to minutes and can keep RPOs down to quickly restorable levels as well.,Zerto Virtual Replication,Veeam Backup & Replication, Zerto Virtual Replication, EMC RecoverPointRecover PointWe use RecoverPoint with vmware SRM for all departments to replicate tier 1 application servers. The business problem it addresses for our company is lowering the recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) from 13 hours to 4 hours.,Block based replication for sql is better than taking just the snaps of the servers since it won't be able to clear the memory of a sql server.

It's hard to understand how many disks to use based on the RTO and RPO for the replication set.

I would have done the same process.,Yes,10,No,We had an issue where I had compression on and one of the sql databases was growing fast. Users were reporting slowness so I had to call support to find out the issue and they resolved it fast.

  • EMC RecoverPoint physical is relatively easy to run once installed and configured!!
  • The Journal space that recoverpoint needs may need to be adjusted and so a lot of space is needed at both sites, production or DR, to accommodate for longer periods of DVR like recording. Failover testing may run out of capacity for long periods of time.

  • Recoverpoint requires that splitter devices exist for all protected arrays. VNX, VMAX, and XIO all have various degrees of integration of the splitter hardware and lose features, with VNX being the strongest in featureset.
Recoverpoint is perfect for shops with EMC Arrays that need to replicate from array to array at decent speeds. It is also perfect for environments that have VMware SRM and need failover/failback functionality of VMs in near realtime.

  • It's hard to understand how many disks to use based on the RTO and RPO for the replication set.
  • Will still need professional service and training to really understand how to use the software.
It is well suited if your whole environment is virtualized to integration with vmware SRM for automation. It isn't suited if you are not using a fibre channel switch network and could get expensive if you have a lot of storage to replicate.
