Overall Satisfaction with Zerto Virtual Replication

Primary Use Case

Replication of business critical VMware VMs over WAN to the remote disaster recovery datacenter.

Valuable Features

The benefits are obvious: The simplicity of the setup and the speed of replication.

The speed of WAN replication is great. It is faster compared to RecoverPoint and 20 VMs replicating over a 20Mbps VPN, which has a RPO less than one minute. Of course, your mileage will vary.
