Zerto vs Veeam

“Managing DR and backup in Zerto changes the game for us. We have much deeper granularity from an RPO perspective and one single pane of glass to manage both processes.”


Eric Bradley

Chief Information Officer

With Zerto: one interface, native CDP, simple licensing... and more!

Zerto vs Rubrik

“in the Rubrik world to instantiate 30 VMs from a blob target to compute, would take 30 hours, with Zerto a 100 VM’s took 15 minutes.”

Kingston Technology

With Zerto: Agentless solution, scalability to 1000+ Amazon EC2 instances... and more!

Zerto vs RecoverPoint for VM (Dell EMC)

“Another thing that was in our evaluation was a point-in-time restore, so should we have something corrupt at a certain time, we could go back to a point in time. That was another feature that Zerto offered that RP4VM didn’t.”

Customer, Utilities company, USA

With Zerto: go beyond DR use case, intelligent insights and analytics, easy install... and more!

Zerto vs Azure Site Recovery

Zerto vs VMware SRM with Array-based Replication

“ I guess testing with it was fairly cumbersome. It wasn’t so much a per VM product, where with Zerto it is. So Zerto, you can failover one or many very easily, and with SRM you have to do it at a storage layer to support the product.”

Manager, Compute and Storage

Multinational professional services firm

With Zerto: many supported use cases, going beyond the storage layer... and more!

Zerto vs VMware SRM with vSphere

“We got some demos done through VMware and we kind of dug into it, but some issues came up quickly of scale and of management complexity and of like ‘How’s the admin going to do this and this and this now?’ that there really weren’t good answers to.

Specialist, Network Technology

With Zerto: file recovery, thousands of recovery points, replication to public clouds... and more!
