It is primarily being used for backup/restore and disaster recovery within the business and it is being used across the entire organization. It addresses the problem of having business continuity and contingency plans in the event the organization needs to restore data or virtual machines when some unforeseen event happens.
  • It is easy to get started.
  • It is also very simple to set up the backup.
  • Disaster recovery is no longer a dreadful or painful process.
  • There could be better documentation available on the restoration process.
Zerto on IBM Cloud is very well suited for backup and replication of data including large volumes of data.
The disaster recovery process is rather simple. I would say there is not a scenario where Zerto would be inappropriate.
The tools are really helpful in automating the restoration process as well as conducting the disaster recovery process. In addition, the tools help one to be efficient in the overall backup process.
  • IBM Cloud Foundry
It's primarily used for cloud-native development and the amount of integration available across the IBM product portfolio is good and makes it easier.

Zerto is being used as a disaster recovery and backup solution solution to remote locations for our VMWare virtual environment and to improve system up time and prevent data loss that meet the demands of our business unit and it's customers. Zerto is also used as a data migration strategy to move data between sites.
  • Small rpo for disaster recovery
  • Data compression for rapid replication
  • Cost
  • Easier management, less command line only tools
Zerto is an ideal solution for disaster recovery between datacenters to achieve short recovery point objectives. It also provides rapid datacenter and server transitions to minimize downtime and minimize data loss. Zerto on IBM cloud provides an easy to use interface to easily transfer data to and from the cloud.
Zerto and IBM cloud have made it easier and faster to deploy a disaster recovery solution that meets the requirements of the business and its customers. It allows for rapid transitions between multiple clusters and data centers with minimal data loss that is usually less than 15 seconds and a downtime that meets objectives.

Our IT department uses Zerto on IBM Cloud for disaster recovery. We use it to replicate our virtual infrastructure data to a cloud location to have it protected in the event of a regional disaster, ransomware attack, corruption, etc. It also allows for quicker file-level recovery, failover testing as well as gives us a way to test/dev in a non-production environment.
  • Ease of setup and upgrade. Installation and configuration was a breeze and can get you protected in just minutes without having to set up additional hardware.
  • Consolidated billing of the IBM infrastructure and Zerto licensing. One bill to pay monthly.
  • Ease of support access. Contacting IBM Cloud support is quick and easy and they can quickly involve Zerto support if needed.
  • Enable the ability to use IBM Cloud Object Storage as a target for Zerto's long-term retention feature.
  • Easier access to the underlying VMware infrastructure would be nice. Right now we have to connect to IBM's VPN and use other tools to do some infrastructure management tasks.
  • More insight into the IBM-side VMware environment that we replicate to (i.e. ability to see available IPs, etc). Most of that is managed by IBM.
Zerto on IBM Cloud is well suited for organizations looking to retire their secondary DR site. Zerto on IBM Cloud can be used to replicate directly to the cloud without having to worry about hardware refresh cycles, colocation costs and configuration, traveling to the colocation for upgrades, changes, etc. Can also be used to supplement existing backup solutions with the journal file level recovery feature and new long-term retention.
Our Zerto on IBM Cloud environment was deployed, configured and ready to use in just a few days, without us having to purchase and configure hardware. The environment deployment was automated in just minutes to fully supported specs so we didn't have to worry about missing anything had we had to do the deployment ourselves.

Zerto is being leveraged to migrate payload and give access to data between teams. The benefit to the solution is that it makes a mirrored copy of the vmdk data prior to the migration, which ensures that the final cut overtakes minutes versus a series of hours.
  • Checksum validation.
  • Real-time data sync between datastores.
  • It's easy to allow multiple teams to have access to instances of data.
  • None come to mind
I'd recommend Zerto on IBM Cloud for anyone looking to create a replication of data for use by different teams. Zerto makes it effortless to replicate the data, allowing engineers to quickly implement additional instances of an application or dataset for use across the requesting teams.
We haven't needed to leverage the tool in this manner to date. We have used it to restore backups, which has reduced our time to complete this task from multiple hours to single minutes.

We evaluated Zerto along side multiple target clouds. Among them were AWS, private hosting and IBM/Softlayer. After running the gamut of tests, IBM proved to have the most performance in terms of throughput and recoverability.
  • Price of capacity
  • Speed of restore
  • Ease of integration
  • Licensing model
  • Regional support
  • Inability to support non X86 workloads
Protecting virtual workloads
Increased the total number of systems being protected.

We were evaluating similar products for a startup serving global community IoT device data.
  • Straightforward UI interactions for fairly complex business operations
Better suited for companies with a well structured IT department.
