Overall Satisfaction with Zerto Virtual Replication

Zerto is our primary high availability and DR solution. We use it across our entire organization to provide continuous replication that protects our environment. We also use Zerto to migrate our VMs between data centers and cloud providers. The simple interface and ease of being able to get it set up and configured let us quickly react to changes in our virtual environment.
  • It is simple to set up and use. In my opinion, one of the most important functions of a tool is its interface. If you have the best product in the world but it takes an arm and a leg to configure and a doctorate degree to use, then the product isn't worth very much.
  • The continuous replication is done very well. The failover and failback process runs smoothly.
  • This has less to do with the product than the company, but Zerto as a company really listens to their customer base. We've always had a very good interpersonal experience with their support and sales teams. Having great people behind their product is definitely one of Zerto's strengths.
  • The price point and minimum license requirements would make it difficult for a smaller organization to adopt Zerto.
  • I'm trying to figure out how to integrate it with SQL, but currently, I've found other DR methods for SQL still work better.
  • Zerto has had a positive impact on how we are able to do DR. Zerto makes it simple and reliable.
  • Zerto is a solid DR tool, but also makes migrations of VMs between data centers and the cloud much more simple.
We started out using Backup Exec which was in service until we virtualized our environment where it didn't perform as well at the time. Then we switched to Veeam which worked well, but then as we started needing to do migrations and off-site DR, we found ourselves relying on Zerto more often.
Zerto does an amazing job of making sure our critical systems stay up and protected. I'm not sure I'd want to spend the money that would be required on a license for a development server, but for those systems you just can't live without, Zerto is our go-to product.
