Zerto for the Win!

Very responsive, very capable. Overall, the product is very easy to set up and configure. Problems usually encroach when lower-level components are updated for changed, for instance, vSphere. Support usually can help us work through any issues that pop up from upgrades to other software, but their own updates can lag behind a little.

We barely need to reach out for Zerto support because the platform itself is rock-solid, but whenever we need help we get comprehensive and attentive specialists to talk to.

The staff is knowledgeable, local, and personable. I hope that with the HP buyout the support stays based in Boston, MA, or at least in the continental U.S. I've had nothing but great experiences with all Zerto support staff. Live log upload is also a bonus as you can upload logs directly to the SR, versus having to send via FTP/email.

Zerto needs better tier 1 support that actually listens to the problem. [To me] it seems that after years of using Zerto I have more knowledge than the tier 1 reps. It gets irritating when I need help quickly and have to go through hoops to get to tier 2, which is where the real help comes in.

When we've needed it, support has been outstanding, especially when compared to support experiences with a number of other products. That's a big thing for us as we're a small company with limited IT personnel that does a lot with technology (more servers than people!).

With remote log collection capabilities, the few times I had to open a ticket, the next time I hear from support is usually with a solution. Night and day compared to some other support experiences.

Zerto support is quick to respond and escalate the case when needed. When I have needed or requested I've escalated issues to subject matter experts quickly.

Overall support is very good. We sometimes get pushback when asking Level 1 support to escalate to Level 2. This causes undue frustrations when you need a more knowledgeable support person to get involved. We've had to escalate to account reps a few times for this scenario. Zerto is very responsive and normally handles our requests very quickly.

We have had some small issues with Zerto and the technicians have always helped us immediately. They are very good at training and explaining. I have learned so much that I am able to take care of many if not all of the issues I have experienced going forward.

Almost perfect, but one time it took the tech a little bit longer than I had hoped to get us back running and he had to wipe the configuration completely and restore it. Not a deal-breaker and definitely got us back to where we needed to be but I will dock 1 point for that. Other than that, support has been amazing.
