The Easy Button for Disaster Recovery

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Zerto is perfect for a hot site. The button is so simplistic you literally just flip a switch to bring up your DR replicated site. It is also very valuable for the developers who want to test out new code, or IT engineers wanting to test new patches. You can easily spin up a fully functioning test site, practice anything you need, then nuke it. On the flip side, it is not your basic file restore product. This is hot data not at rest.

Zerto to the rescue

Zerto is highly suited in environments where you need to get your tier 0/1 systems up and running as quickly and easily as possible. With the low RTO/RPO times, the ease of administration and fail-over, and also the overall functionality of how Zerto's runbook works. Not many applications can do what Zerto does and give you that warm and fuzzy feeling when it comes to DR.

Zerto is great for an environment that needs to have real-time system replication for their DR plan. Any company critical systems that are constantly changing throughout the day. With the new features added to Zerto it could also be used as a backup solution for your virtual environment.

Zerto delivers enterprise-class Disaster Recovery in an easy to use package

Zerto is a great option if you are looking for an enterprise-class disaster recovery solution. It is not cheap though, so if you are a SMB there may be cheaper alternatives out there that may get you what you need. Zerto is also a great tool for data center consolidations if you need to migrate VMs from one data center to another very easily.

In cases where keeping your environment available 100% of the time, Zerto is a magnificent tool and makes things so easy. I can’t sleep so much better at night knowing that we have a solution that within a couple of clicks will allow us to get back up and running.

Zerto is well suited for the consolidation of data centers and/or replicating data between sites for disaster recovery. These are two great examples of where Zerto shines and out performs other platforms. You are also able to use dissimilar hardware since Zerto works at the VM level versus the at the hardware level.

Zerto is well suited for a business in need of a low recovery point objective, as set in their disaster recovery plan. It's also suited in an organization that has minimal resources dedicated to support DR technology. Our setup was minimal, and everyday management has been very minimal. Our setup was for about 50 servers, and was completed in under a week.

It's well suited for any environment that requires business continuity and meeting SLA for a production environment. Preventing prolonged downtime and restoring services ASAP. I can't think of any scenarios where Zerto is not suitable.

Zerto is well suited if you are wanting to replicate your critical data quickly to another data center. This provides quick and easy turn up in case of a disaster. If you are just looking to backup your data and don't need to quickly turn up the DR site after a disaster, Zerto isn't necessary.

It's fantastic for anything you wouldn't want to lose any data on, such as an ERP. It is far too expensive, however, to use as a DR option for more static VMs, or VMs where a daily or twice-daily backup is sufficient.

Zerto replication is great for the majority of live servers and enables us to successfully have high availability at a reasonable price. Not having synchronous replication is not an issue in most cases, but is a limitation for some of the SQL servers.

Zerto does an amazing job of making sure our critical systems stay up and protected. I'm not sure I'd want to spend the money that would be required on a license for a development server, but for those systems you just can't live without, Zerto is our go-to product.

Zerto - Unparalleled Protection

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

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).

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.

Make sure you have enough bandwidth!

We use it for our company that cannot have downtime on their environment. It provides the assurance that there is the less downtime as well as little to no data loss. If you are a small business you might not use all the functionality but it is there if you need it

I think anyone in a virtual environment that needed replication would be very satisfied with Zerto Virtual Replication software. It was so easy to get installed, setup and running and is very reliable. We have had no issues with it and are very, very happy with the results. I would recommend it to anyone needing virtual server replication.

If you have to initiate a failure to your Disaster Recovery site in case of inclement weather or just keeping your doing a once a year fail over to your DR site then this process will be easy to achieve and carry out. Also if you experienced an attack of ransomware you can use Zerto to do a file level recovery to restore only those file(s) that have been affected.

You always need real disaster recovery protection in virtual environments; it is a perfect match.

I do not recommend it to use as the only backup solution. Since Zerto does not use snapshots it can work with other tools like Veeam Backup Reviews without any problems.

Zerto - Replication and (Backup)

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Zerto is well suited for VMware shops that want/need replication without purchasing SRM. Zerto's cost is on a per VM basis, which can inhibit some applications, but there is no dependency on size, so a VM can be 1GB or 12TB, and still be licensed for backup and replication. Environments that have recoverpoint for EMC storage will like this tool, because of it's ease of use. Shops can allow VMware admins to manage the tool and thusly manage VMware failovers and failbacks. Zerto does work with Hyper-V as well, so they are covered by the major hypervisors.

Zerto Virtual Replication, good stuff

Zerto Virtual replication is well suited for environments that have a lot of virtual machines. It's very fast and easy to use. It can work with not only VMware, but with hyperV and others. If you have all physical servers (which, at this point, why?) then this probably is not the right replication software for you.

Why I like Zerto best

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

If you have very large VMDKs (Virtual Machine Disk), failing snapshots or failing Microsoft VSS processes, then Zerto is the product.
If you have limited CPU or storage space or speed, Zerto is the answer.
If you need "nearly" instant RPO and very fast RTO, Zerto is the answer.
If you don't have the platform issues or are not concerned with RPO and RTO, and cost is a driver, then other products can have an advantage.

Zerto is very well suited for a situation in which you need to replicate data or info to a DR site, whether on or off-prem, or in the cloud. This software platform has a lot of cloud capabilities, and really makes sense for a lot of organizations trying to make their DR more approachable and consistent.
