Overall Satisfaction with Zerto

Zerto is being used as a Disaster Recovery solution to replicate mission-critical virtual machines to a secondary site. This is done by the use of journal-based transactions. This allows us to fail over our systems in a matter of minutes compared to a matter of hours. This has reduce the the company's RTO.
  • Journal based replication.
  • Disaster failover and recovery.
  • Automated network reconfiguration after initial setup.
  • There are some configuration settings that could be adjusted to be more global after editing.
  • Reduction in time to bring a failed system up in our DR environment.
  • Ease of being able to test production systems and patches in a replicated sandbox environment without having to impact the production servers.
Hands down Zerto blows VMware SRM out of the water. The configuration is easy to setup. Managing replications are just a few short key strokes and there is an easy-to-navigate web dashboard.
This application has proved itself time and time again. We have been able to failover our Exchange servers when the database went corrupt. We were able to fail over and have mail flowing thru DR site within less than 30 minutes compared to the hours it took with SRM. The ease of being able to test your failover process adds peace of mind when you present it to your executive board.
