The most common users of Zerto are from Mid-sized Companies (51-1,000 employees) and the Information Technology & Services industry.
Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
[Zerto is a] great tool for backups and aligns well with our DR backup site strategy. It is easy to scale by adding servers, has nice integration with Hyper-V, as well as a nice security feature to scan files for possible ransomware indicators. However, it can be cost-prohibitive for smaller organizations.
For direct failover between data centers, this product excels. Of course, connectivity between data centers is at a premium and the product doesn't fare well with excessive latency. For metro area failover, it's ideal, for a longer, continental distance, the latency would probably be too much. Also, the rate of data change is key: a very high rate of data change is challenging, even with this product.
I've been working with Zerto mainly in new customer migrations from their site to our data centers. For me, this is a much superior tool compared to vSphere Replication/SRM/Carbonite for the purpose it serves because of its low learning curve, fast deployment and configuration, and amazingly-built compression technology. Whenever we're on a tight project schedule, Zerto is our #1 choice. Even though I find it amazing as a DR/backup tool (for instance, having 5-second checkpoints for a virtual machine guarantees any recovery in case of a disaster), it becomes too pricey unless you have a very specific need for such a small RPO.
[Zerto is the] best real-time replication and DR product on the market. Personally, I would not use it for backup or LTR in a scenario such as ours, since we use VSAN and that storage is very expensive compared to traditional SAN. If you want to make life easier with annual/quarter DR tests then you should 100% purchase 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.
Zerto would be very helpful in an environment where you would need to bring up Virtual Machines in a disaster recovery environment in a quick and timely manner.
If you need to keep your RPO and RTO down to seconds/minutes then Zerto is an amazing solution for this. It also allows for long-term retention and file-level recovery as well. It also has an amazing feature where it allows for Hyper V to VMware conversation in a fail-over scenario.
Cost is a high. Where in other environments that use VMware maybe using vCenter and the storage platform to do the failover instead of Zerto. But Zerto works very well.
It is well suited for companies our size, I can't really speak for other companies' situations. Licensing is simple, licensed by protected servers.
Zerto is very well suited for the consolidation of data centers and/or replicating data between remote sites for disaster recovery. Zerto is also positioned to be another key IT asset in an organization that has minimal resources dedicated to [supporting] backup recovery and continuity of processing of information technology.
Good for cross-hypervisor replication. Nice to know what our VMs are not trapped in VMware and can be easily migrated to Azure, Hyper-V, AWS etc.
Do you have a system at a branch office you wish was in the data center, but shutting it down to move it would take too long? Use Zerto, downtime can be cut down to about 10 minutes since it seeds the system at the target. Have an application that you can't afford to lose? Zerto can replicate it in near real-time, we had a system we hadn't backed up yet, and I buggered it, luckily I had put it in Zerto, Failed it over to the target datacenter using a snapshot from before I did the stupid thing and it came back up happy as can be! Want to move resources to or from the cloud? Check out Zerto.
In situations where backups or recovery requires next to zero data loss. While zero is almost impossible, Zerto provides the closest to zero I have been able to find.
Zerto is well suited for virtualized environments that require short RPO windows. It has some challenges with high transaction volume SQL servers, however, we have not experienced issues with any other types of servers.
Zerto is great for recovering VM's from onsite to cloud resources. While pointing Zerto to the cloud we can leverage the scalability of the cloud to increase the speed of the recovery by adding additional resources. Zerto also includes training and labs as part of their offering which allows owners to test configs without breaking a production environment.
Zerto is well suited for VMware, HyperV, Azure, GCVE, and AWS replication. Zerto is not well suited for GCP Native system protection.
Site-to-site replication is extremely useful, and once failed over to a different site, reversing the protection and replication back to the original site is extremely easy, intuitive, and useful. It's not so much a traditional backup system, e.g. not something that would compete w/ Commvault et.al for traditional file/folder backup/recovery, and/or comparison of past file/folder sets to target certain changes/versions/etc.
After using competing products I do feel Zerto is the leader in this space. The setup is easy and you can be up and running in no time. It integrates well with multiple virtual platforms as well as the cloud for hybrid recovery scenarios. The integration of a backup solution might be useful for a small to medium business looking to eliminate multiple products but may fall short as an enterprise solution. Zerto does check off many of the boxes for a full-featured solution and should be a strong consideration for any IT department looking to simplify their Business Continuity Plan.
Zerto works well for Disaster Recovery protection and replication. The backup and retention, while functional could use some improvement.
Zerto is perfect for a company that has the disk space available at two different sites. It can create a 1 to 1 copy and keep it synced with impressive RPOs. If you don't have the disk space then it can be difficult because it does require a lot of disk space to make a 1 to 1 copy which is completely understandable.
Great fit for replicating fiber channel VMs to a secondary data center. Bad fit for replicating clusters that have dual roles on multiple nodes.
Zerto is well suited for virtual machine recovery, it's less appropriate for really large database server recovery. It also works well for migrations to cloud providers. It's less appropriate for nightly backup/recovery purposes.
Zerto is great for DR solutions where you need to quickly recover entire sites or, with the ability to define VPG's, specific applications across multiple virtual machines to another location or data center. It can also easily assist with migration efforts between sites and even has some limited utility for short-term backup.
Zerto is best suited for any organization large or small trying to protect its data with multi-site redundancy.
Works really well when test restorations are needed and have to be reported for audits. I wish there was more support/knowledge on dealing with a MS Hyper-V environment. Support personnel do the best they can knowing little about Hyper-V; most know VMWare. Seemed a little expensive, but over time it is well worth the price.
