Overall Satisfaction with EMC RecoverPoint

We have been using Dell EMC RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines (hosted on VMWare) for Disaster Recovery. It helped us having secondary site consistent and recover systems with VM level granularity. This software solution is highly reliable and keeps our "Tier 1" application highly available with minimal usage of resources and gives us an edge because of its point-in-time recovery (that may cause due to any factors like malfunction, data corruptions, disaster).
  • Automatically discover and register VMware ESXi hosts for replication.
  • Auto-registers shared datastores , pre-defined failover Network Configuration. EMC RecoverPoint saved a lot of time and helped our team to minimize our disaster recovery window.
  • Until now I don't have any but in this technological era there are bugs in every software but are fixed in next patches or new releases.
  • We perform DR test in every six months and recoverpoint (vRPA) simplified our DR strategy. The solution saved lot of time and helped our team to minimize the DR window. It provides a reliable and repeatable automated DR workflow that increases data protection and recovery operational efficiencies. Silent test recovery and replicate VMs without impacting production site and bring down our RPO/RTOs to meet business needs is one of the key benefit.
EMC RecoverPoint is a storage agnostic and highly reliable solution in terms of cost as well as reliability.
In this competitive market please prefer to adopt reliable and enterprise solution for your mission critical systems/applications as they are your assets. We are VMware shop and recoverpoint well suited our requirement.

Evaluating EMC RecoverPoint and Competitors

Yes - We earlier used Hitachi VSP storage and its underlying solution called HUR (Hitachi Universal Replication). Product worked well but we refreshed our storage from Hitachi to Dell EMC so to we bought recoverpoint from EMC for our DR solution.
