If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Dell EMC RecoverPoint Continuous Remote Replication, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
RecoverPoint can be depended on as your only disaster recovery solution without any need to mix different types of failover systems. I would rate RecoverPoint as nine out of ten.
I rate RecoverPoint nine out of 10. My advice to future users is to pay for a full support contract with the vendor because you cannot implement it alone. And the RecoverPoint setup is a one-time thing, but if a problem happens, you also need to take care of the critical points. This is what you should take care of on your own. And, of course, the management of RecoverPoint needs to be transferred over. It needs to change from Flashware to stream modify.
I handle the installation and support of the product for clients. I'd rate the solution at a seven out of ten. I'm pretty happy with it. It's a good solution.
I would rate it a ten out of ten. It could use an external application on top of its recover points. Other hypervisors should be integrated with this system. Other hypervisors should be able to get the benefits of this solution.
I would recommend the product. It's good, especially for those who want to do replication and don't have a lot of money. It's a very good product and it uses very little bandwidth. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
RecoverPoint acts on a block level and it needs an EMC Splitter to work. If your storage arrays are not EMC, then you need to virtualize your storage via VPLEX before acquiring RecoverPoint.
