    Tightly integrated with VMware and easy to set up, but needs integration with more hypervisors and databases
    Pros and Cons
    • "Continuous replication with lower RTO and RPO is the most innovative feature. Its tight integration with VMware for VMware VMs is also valuable."
    • "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."

    What is our primary use case?

    We used it for disaster recovery as well as migration. It had on-premises as well as hybrid deployments.

    What is most valuable?

    Continuous replication with lower RTO and RPO is the most innovative feature. Its tight integration with VMware for VMware VMs is also valuable.

    What needs improvement?

    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.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been working with this solution for five years.

    Find out what your peers are saying about Dell Technologies, VMware, Zerto and others in Disaster Recovery (DR) Software. Updated: June 2022.
    607,127 professionals have used our research since 2012.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    It does have bugs, but they are not major. There are some data unavailability situations.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    It can scale pretty much fine. It does have its own limitations, but I don't think any customer will reach that limit. 

    How are customer service and support?

    Their L1 support is not so good as of now. They have recently outsourced to a company, and they are not doing good. L2 and L3 support are good.

    How was the initial setup?

    The setup is pretty straightforward, and there is no difficulty in setting it up. It is fairly simple. If everything is good, deployment doesn't take more than three hours for both sites.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    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. 

    What other advice do I have?

    I would recommend Zerto over RecoverPoint. I believe Zerto is a pretty good product for VMs as compared to RecoverPoint. Zerto has file-level recovery, and it supports multiple applications and databases, not only VMs. There are many other things that Zerto can protect. RecoverPoint is for those customers who are looking only for VMware-centric solution, and their environments are only on VMware. I would rate RecoverPoint a seven out of ten.

    Stable and straightforward to install, and offers point-in-time recovery
    Pros and Cons
    • "It is a point-in-time restore, which is quite handy."
    • "I would like to have the HTML 5 interface working because it is currently not functioning with the VMware environment."

    What is our primary use case?

    I use RecoverPoint for VMs to for critical backups.

    What is most valuable?

    It is a point-in-time restore, which is quite handy.

    What needs improvement?

    The price of this product could be lower.

    I would like to have the HTML 5 interface working because it is currently not functioning with the VMware environment. This means that you have to use the old UIs to work with it.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We have been working with RecoverPoint for the past six months.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    This is a stable product.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    The way I use it, we haven't had to scale. However, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    Prior to RecoverPoint, we used VMware's replication functionality. We also have Veeam Backup and Replication deployed in the environment.

    All of these products do the same thing and it's just a matter of what features you like. I use RecoverPoint for VM for my production-critical system because it gives you general electives for the journals and the point-in-time recovery.

    For less critical backups, I used VMware or Veeam.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup was straightforward.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    This is an expensive product.

    What other advice do I have?

    Overall, this product is working well but at the same time, there is always room for improvement.

    I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

    Point-in-time recovery is useful, but it should have a GUI option for recovering a group of virtual machines

    What is our primary use case?

    We are using it for DR Security.

    What is most valuable?

    Point-in-time recovery and ease of deployment are valuable.

    What needs improvement?

    Its scalability and integration with VMware cloud foundation should be improved. 

    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.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using this solution for more than one year.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    It is stable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Its scalability can be better.

    How are customer service and support?

    We have good support, but we have been having issues with the product. We've been trying to work on them with the help of their support.

    How was the initial setup?

    It was straightforward, but we had issues after the setup. So, we are working with their support to resolve these issues.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    It was a part of a backup solution. So, it was free for us.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We checked out Commvault and Zerto.

    What other advice do I have?

    I would rate it a seven out of 10.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    On-premises

    Stable, good technical support, and easy installation

    What is our primary use case?

    We are using Dell EMC RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines primarily for data replication from one location to another.

    What needs improvement?

    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.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using this solution for approximately two years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    The solution is stable but the performance could improve.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    We have two customers using this solution.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    The technical is very good but sometimes it takes them a while to come back with a solution to our issue.

    How was the initial setup?

    The installation is straightforward if the version you have is compatible with your infrastructure.

    What about the implementation team?

    One person can do the whole implementation, monitoring, and maintenance of the solution.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    There is a license required for this solution and the pricing depends on how many virtual machines you have.

    What other advice do I have?

    I would recommend this solution to others.

    I rate Dell EMC RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines a nine out of ten.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    On-premises
