  • VM replication and recovery.
  • VM migration.
  • Cross VM platform migration.
  • Integration with cloud!
  • Moving a VM from one protection group to another could be simplified.

  • Failover of VMs from one data center to another
  • Easy of use once setup
  • Don't have to commit the failover until the process is ready.
  • Would be nice if there was some way to reduce the size of the journal

  • Failover recovery
  • Server migrations
  • Restoring individual files from the replicated copy

  • The single web interface provides an immediate view of the environment.
  • Zerto moves the server images from one colocation to another efficiently.
  • Zerto provides an intuitive interface for restoring information.
  • It provides for good alerting for offline VMs not being replicated.
  • Pricing and discounts are an issue for me.
  • Configuration settings should be adjusted to be more global.
  • Online support is their preference, a live body sometimes is very beneficial.

  • Migrate from disjoined datacenters
  • Replicate to Azure
  • Help in crypto recovery
  • Improved backup component. Would love to use Zerto for overall backup product but not quite there yet.
  • Automatic minimum recommendations for Azure. Pain in the butt trying to find the right VM size to fit an onprem VM into Azure.
  • Provide more guidance on proper setup.

  • DR testing and recovery
  • System datacenter migration
  • Backup recoveries
  • Our greatest difficulty is that while Zerto allows you to assign new static IPs for failover and testing uniquely, it does not support updated DNS entries, this is useful in testing as the Names servers in a test environment are not usually available.

  • Next to zero data loss between protected server and recovery site.
  • Testing recovery.
  • Works great with cloud solutions.
  • Maybe more detail on what it's doing during the progress bar.
  • Better clarification on testing or recovering only one server in a VGP.

  • Support is quick to respond.
  • Providing metrics for RTO.
  • Quick Recovery times.
  • The license model is one time price with annual support.
  • Zerto did not have quick recovery times to AWS so I needed to move our DR location from AWS to Azure.

  • Site to Site Replication.
  • Recovery of VM's from recent timepoints.
  • Modification of replicated VM's to different sites.
  • IP, and/or other site specific, post replication/recovery modifications.
  • The GUI could potentially benefit from a standalone option, vs VCenter Plugin.
  • The VRA's which are placed on Hosts are pretty 'black box' ... visibility into their activity/behavior could prove useful.

  • Test disaster recover with failovers.
  • Replicate 1 to 1 from source to target with impressive RPOs.
  • Well, we have been on 8.0U2 for a while now with no need to upgrade at this time. We feel it is performing as advertised. We have over 300 VPGs and our DR Tests are very large in size and Zerto has no problems at all during these tests. I don't have anything to add at this time.
