Overall Satisfaction with Zerto

We use Zerto for real-time replication of our production Hyper V virtual environment. It is a crucial part of our disaster recovery protection.
  • Realtime replication
  • Fast recovery
  • Platform to platform conversation of virtual machines
  • Easy file level recovery
  • The GUI could be a little more intuitive.
  • [I would appreciate] being able to call local scripts on virtual machines.
  • [I would like] better/more customizable reporting.
  • Zerto allows for very easy DR testing.
  • It adds a level of security and protection to production environments.
  • It covers some audit compliance requirements.
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.

Overall the product is really very easy to use once you have a few weeks under your belt. Failover tests can be performed quickly.
If you need to keep your RPO and RTO down to seconds/minutes then Zerto is an amazing solution for this. It also allows for long-term retention and file-level recovery as well. It also has an amazing feature where it allows for Hyper V to VMware conversation in a fail-over scenario.
