Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"They're moving a lot of their workload to cloud and aiming for a seamlessly integrated product.""The most useful thing is that it provides a snapshot of your environment in about 15 minutes. It is stable, and it always works. It is also scalable and easy to set up.""The solution is very easy to use.""It is a very stable product and very scalable."

More Azure Site Recovery Pros →

"The solution is quite stable. We haven't experienced any kind of bug or glitch. We haven't experienced crashes.""Continuous replication with lower RTO and RPO is the most innovative feature. Its tight integration with VMware for VMware VMs is also valuable.""The installation is straightforward if the version you have is compatible with your infrastructure.""The most valuable feature is that it is journal-based and you don't have to replicate a lot of data.""It is a point-in-time restore, which is quite handy."

Cons
"It could include more of a backup and recovery.""When it runs, it runs well but when it doesn't run, the solution needs to make it clearer as to why and what the troubleshooting process is. All this would be possible if the error logging was streamlined a bit.""We need to be able to move the virtual servers and not build and then port them across. They need to improve the hypervisor.""It is for site-to-site replication. When something goes wrong on your site, you only get 15 minutes before it also goes wrong on your replicated site. There should be some way to be able to say that we want to restore it, but we want to restore it to the version from yesterday. It should support versioning. I would also like to see real-time scanning for advanced threat protection, more straightforward billing, and quicker turnaround on the tech support."

More Azure Site Recovery Cons →

"The solution is not easy to use. It's actually quite hard. If it could be simplified it might be better for the end user.""I would like to have the HTML 5 interface working because it is currently not functioning with the VMware environment.""In the next release of this software, I would like to see options that help to decrease the bandwidth required, such as compressing the data.""It can have better integration. It would be good if, in addition to VMware VM, it can also support other hypervisors. I also want to see support for Oracle databases. As of now, it supports only SQL and Exchange. It would be good to also support other databases.""The solution could improve by being more easier to use. However, once you have used it for a while it becomes easier. Additionally, there could be better support and compatibility with management by having a command-line interface. This would be beneficial for the customers."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It should have more straightforward billing. The billing was what got funky. It was really cheap. We would pay based on the usage. We paid around $225 a month for site-to-site replication."
  • More Azure Site Recovery Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "This is not a very cheap solution and compared to others, it is expensive."
  • "This is an expensive product."
  • "Pricing-wise, it is pretty much fair for any customer who only has a VMware environment. Licensing is based on the number of VMs that you want to protect at any given point in time. Licensing is not based on size."
  • "There is a license required for this solution and the pricing depends on how many virtual machines you have."
