    SRM cannot really be compared indeed. SRM is more focused on Orchestration. Zerto has a cool solution. Hope I will be able to test their stuff in my lab at some point.

      I thought the same thing Duncan. I use SRM for a lot more than failover.

      I want a Zerto SRA! ;-)

  8. vCloud Hybrid Service Offering Extends Your Software-Defined Data Center via @ChrisWahl | Wahl Network

    [...] There’s still a very long list of service providers who provide public cloud fueled by vCloud. In fact, a large chunk of them also offer a test drive to get exposure to what the vCloud Powered Service looks and feels like before cutting a PO. One example, Bluelock, has both produced training materials for a TrainSignal course entitled “VMware vCloud Director Organizations” (kudos to Jake Robinson) along with a nifty Recovery-as-a-Service offering that leverages Zerto, whom I have written about from a past Tech Field Day event.

    I’m not sure why this can’t be compared to SRM. I saw a demo at VMWorld and orchestration is definitely part of Zerto. I like the solution a lot – especially the journal with the ability to recover on a more granular level than SRM.

    Probably a bit late on this but…. Having seen a demo of this product and am currently trialling it is like everything EMC recoverPoint should be if EMC could write software properly. Unfortunately like all tech blogs you singularly fail to encompass that murky world of licensing and this is where Zerto falls. It is licensed per VM covered,
    Understandable when you look at the way the product works, but ultimately this can prove to be hugely expensive once you start to go in to the 100s or 1000s of VMs.
    DR should only need one product, be scallable and licensing should be flexible to work in an ever changing environment, unfortunately you could end up with using multiple products for DR, one for mission critical and one for the others tiered software like tiered storage, unfortunately this starts to impact managability of your environment.
    A thorny issue that many VMware people are starting to face.
