"The solution has the capability to scale well."

More Datto Cloud Continuity Pros →

"If you want to do failover, it works without any problem.""VMware SRM is a very nice tool for disaster recovery for virtual environments.""The most valuable features are the disaster recovery and testing.""The solution is simple to use and has effective automation.""Our systems fail over using SRM. So, we do a big bang DR, which is biannual, and we fail over our fairly massive Epic electronic health record (EHR) and our core applications. It takes us about 30 minutes to fail over using SRM, which is pretty good. In most hospitals that have Epic installed, Epic does the audit to make sure that we can fail over if something were to happen. Normally, sites will have a DR solution specific to the EHR, but right now, our pain point is the third-party tier-one clinical applications.""The most valuable feature is disaster recovery testing.""The product is evolving and the vendor is committed to change.""The UI is very user-friendly and testing is easy."

"I don't have any feedback to provide in terms of features that may be lacking."

More Datto Cloud Continuity Cons →

"We have had an issue when some customers have traditional designs and sites. For example, on one another site, they are using hyper-converged, using VMware, or Nutanix. We have a problem with the synchronization between the storage for site to site. This is the main issue. We are adding some other tools to support the synchronization to allow the movement of the workload from site to site easily.""This product is not appropriate for those moving to a broader cloud footprint.""The solution could improve by removing some of the limitations we have been facing. There could be better integrated.""There needs to be better stability during heavy capacity in future releases.""The version we are currently using is not the latest and greatest but it has buggy behavior in some browsers.""The configuration process could be improved.""The two vCenters have to be synchronized, which sometimes gives us problems because Keberos does not tolerate more than five minutes in time difference.""Sometimes it can cause a bit of downtime during switchovers."

  • "There is an annual license to use this solution."
  • "The price of VMware SRM depends on how many VMs the customer has to move. There is a difference between the standard and enterprise license. I'm presenting the standard license to my customers because the total of VMs is not more than 50. The customer needs only the standard license and the cost is very effective for him."
