We initially purchased RecoverPoint and after stumbling through the installation with the consultant and realizing how clumsy and nonautomated it was we began looking elsewhere. We really disliked the amount of setup and manual configuration needed to get basic things configured like IP address changes for the DR site. Zerto answered this in spades and was extremely easy to configure.

Zerto to the rescue

We use VMware vSphere Replication as our disaster recovery tool for our Tier 2/3 systems. This was chosen as it saves us costs for our less critical, but still needed systems that keep our company running. Putting everything on Zerto would be great, but with this combination, we can cover our whole infrastructure and know that we can meet all the SLA's we have established.

Zerto is a lot more flexible that VMware SRM. We used to use SRM and it was very rigid. All of our protection groups were based on storage volumes so any time anything needed to be added or removed from a protection group you had to adjust the storage volume and make other changes in SRM. With Zerto it is much easier to add or remove servers into protection groups. The scripting and instrumentation for bringing protection groups is much easier with Zerto as well.

Zerto replication is a lot cheaper than any of the completion, it’s simple to set up and use, requires minimal training for users, and its simple interface and groups using VPG enables a granular setup. It just does what it says and is simple, reliable, and relatively cheap

Zerto solves issues with snapshot-based backups and provides continuous data protection up to 14 days with an astonishing granularity. Zerto's One-2-Many can provide local and offsite backups with near real-time and fast restore of a VM
Zerto does not backup physical machines or VMs that are turned off, but there are other products to do that.
Other backup products are stepping up with ease of deployment and small organizations would find them a little easier to use as there are fewer configuration options.

The speed of WAN replication is great. It is faster compared to RecoverPoint and 20 VMs replicating over a 20Mbps VPN, which has a RPO less than one minute. Of course, your mileage will vary.

While more expensive, Zerto does a better job of protecting our servers and keeping the RPO low. It was also supported by our financial core which was a huge factor in our adoption. However, one it was put into our system, we wanted to adopt it company wide. As long as you understand what it should be used for, you will not be disappointed.

We looked at both CommVault and NetBackup, which are similar platforms to that of the Zerto Replication Software stack. We thought the Zerto solution best met our specification needs, as well as our cost needs. The CommVault licensing was complicated, and we just have had a bad experience in the past with NetBackup.

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.

  • Veeam
We used to use Veeam for our replication solution but due to the snapshot issues that we used to experience with our larger virtual machines, i.e we would encounter some lost of connectivity. We were told by two of our partners that Zerto would solve our needs and we did our research and used the trial and were so impressed that we purchased it.

  • Veeam Backup & Replication and VMware Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery
Zerto is easy to install and maintain. Most importantly, the replication feature with a journal that provides recovery point every few seconds cannot be found in any other software we evaluated.

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.

Zerto replicates at the hypervisor level, not the VM level like VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM). SRM replicates vms within or across vSphere clusters, but not between different hypervisors. While I only replicate from vcenter to vcenter, if we needed to replicate to a hyper-v cluster, it could be an option. SRM also doesn't replicate as fast as Zerto.
