Can I use Zerto to (a) migrate VMs from a legacy vSphere environment to VxRail and (b) provide ongoing DR protection from one VxRail cluster to another?
Hello, I am Yaron from Zerto
There should be no reason that we would not work on these products. That being said I am not sure we have seen many of these. There might be some additional configuration on the VMware side to allow installation but I did manage to find a few cases that customers are running hyper-converged solution with Dell EMC VxRail.
Hi Yaron, thanks very much.
When you say you found a few “cases” of Zerto customers running VxRail, do you mean *support cases*, or do you mean you found *instances* of Zerto customers running VxRail? If you meant support cases, would you be able to share the case details with me so I can see the types of issues VxRail customers have with Zerto?
Hi George, Guy from Zerto here.
VxRail HCI is supported by Zerto and is currently used by quite a few of our customers.
That said, please honor our commitment to safeguarding our customers’ sensitive information and intellectual property, certainly on a public-facing community board like this one.
Thanks and best regards,
I apologise for my late acknowledgment of your last post! I certainly understand.
It’s great to know that VxRail HCI is supported by Zerto and is currently used by quite a few of your customers. Are there any special things to take into consideration/anything not mentioned in the “Zerto for vSphere” implementation/user guides with regards to Deploying/running Zerto with VxRail?
Zerto is not specifically testing VXRail as it’s just hyper-converged running VMware. It is still running the same infrastructure, therefore should not impact Zerto. Please let us knwo if you have any additional questions.
