I am running the free version of ESXi/vSphere 5.5 here at my office (very small environment). Will Zerto support that for offsite replication to a cloud provider?
Zerto Virtual Replication requires the VMware vCenter management server (or Microsoft’s System Center for Virtual Machine Management when using Hyper-V instead).
I recommend looking at the total cost/benefit, including the cost of vCenter (before ruling it out completely), when planning out the use cases ZVR can help you with. We (and our partners) can definitely work with you to plan this out and help you determine what this means to you.
Thanks for stopping by!
