It replicates workloads fast, but it wastes resources
There is a problem with the solution's architecture. First of all, it requires double the resources on the virtual environment to set up one environment. You set up a cluster of virtual machines per site, so you are doubling the resources you need. While it wastes resources, it also provides a strategy to do high availability. It also lacks backward compatibility with some of the old vCenter servers. When you get an issue, they want you to upgrade up to the latest edition. However, when I have an old vCenter server, I should be able to use whatever version we have to do the replication. It also has a security vulnerability because it requires several ports to be open in the customer environment. These ports are open on the firewall. It also lacks a reporting mechanism to show a customer, the number of machines you've backed up and the difference. It's essential for a customer to know what is happening.

Performs well, easy to manage, resilient, and the technical support is helpful
The management of the environment is straightforward.  I no longer have to deal with a storage area network in addition to a server-level platform. All of these things have been combined into a single tool The ability to patch and manage the environment has proven extremely beneficial.…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"RecoverPoint replicates workloads fast."
"The installation is straightforward if the version you have is compatible with your infrastructure."
"Point-in-time recovery and ease of deployment are valuable."
"The workload can be moved directly if the disaster site is the main site."
"One of the standout features of Dell RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines is its real-time data protection capability."
"The most valuable feature is that it is journal-based and you don't have to replicate a lot of data."
"The most valuable features are the data center recovery administration and the time of recovery."
"It is a point-in-time restore, which is quite handy."
"The solution is stable."
"The tool's most valuable feature is ease of use."
"It offers synchronous data replication, allowing us to sync our recovery data every hour and efficiently send applications to remote sites."
"We haven't needed anyone to maintain or deploy the solution. The traditional Nutanix administrator can administer the solution."
"Hyper-convergence gives me the ability to patch my firmware, software, and hypervisors with a single click. That is extremely useful."
"It is a very secure and scalable solution, and their support is also outstanding."
 

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 see integration with EMC NetWorker in the next release."
"It should have features for recovering a group of virtual machines and full-scale security. For recovering all the VMs at once, they don't have a GUI option, and we have to use the command line."
"It would be good to have a critical application on the customer side."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"I would like to have the HTML 5 interface working because it is currently not functioning with the VMware environment."
"I think that Nutanix should support public clouds instead of the Nutanix data centers."
"For moving the data for DR, we are using Megaport. We are using a Megaport link between the data centers, so we have a third party for the site-to-site connectivity between the data centers. If such connectivity is available from the Nutanix side, it would be helpful for us."
"They need better reporting on the environment."
"The product is more costly than other platforms. The price could be better."
"The solution needs improvement in cost."
"The pricing could be better."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"This is an expensive product."
"It was a part of a backup solution. So, it was free for us."
"This is not a very cheap solution and compared to others, it is expensive."
"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."
"It is a little bit cheaper than the other products in the market. It is affordable."
"I always want it to be cheaper."
"One-time costs may initially seem high, but they reflect the quality of the service received."
"Besides the license, there are additional costs with the network connection. The customer may want a direct connection between the two data centers and that has an extra cost."
