Overall Satisfaction with Zerto

We use Zerto as our DR solution to our DR location as well as Microsoft Azure. We use it to streamline our DR strategy with our business continuity plan. IT has utilized Zerto primarily for DR as well as offloading computing load to DR.
  • I can't stress how important it is for Disaster Recovery.
  • Integration with Microsoft Azure to flip VM's over to Azure as one of our sites.
  • Ease of use to setup Virtual Protection Group.
  • 5 minutes of incremental snapshots to restore VM's.
  • Support needs improvement in terms of response time and provides appropriate solutions.
  • Bugs need to be sorted out with missing configuration on the VPG after it has been created.
  • Better reporting window to generate more usual information.
  • Meeting/Exceeding SLA.
  • Reducing downtime for servers/services to prevent negative impact on the business and end-user.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication
Veeam is an impressive solution, however, Zerto has a better feature set, customizable journal, and RPO timing. The price with Zerto was more competitive.
I'm disappointed with Zerto support, I can't imagine how many times I had to collect logs and they couldn't find anything wrong. Very hard to escalate support tickets and get someone who is very knowledgeable.
