Mature with a nice user interface and good management capabilities

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is now Flash-based, which is better. they moved away from Java."
  • "The cost of the solution is pretty high. The licensing costs may affect a company's ability to scale."

What is our primary use case?

Our customers are using this solution. We basically use the solution for DR, Disaster Recovery.

What is most valuable?

The setups that we have in place are great. We use the site replication, the Continuous Remote Replication. That's quite useful for us. 

The stability is good.

the initial setup is straightforward.

One advantage of the RecoverPoint is the ability to recover to a point in time. You also have so many images and you are able to recover them.

The product is quite mature.

The solution is now Flash-based, which is better. they moved away from Java.

The management capabilities are excellent. 

The product has a new user interface, which is very nice.

What needs improvement?

There's always room for improvement, although I don't have a specific example on hand.

The cost of the solution is pretty high. The licensing costs may affect a company's ability to scale.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used the solution for five years or so. It's been a while. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have found the solution to be extremely stable. There are no bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. The only downside is it might be a little bit expensive in terms of being limited in terms of the consistency of groups that you can create. The licensing tends to be a little bit pricey for the region in which we are operating. 

How are customer service and support?

I haven't needed technical support and therefore cannot speak to how helpful or supportive they are.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

What we used to have was not exactly the same. However, from a storage point of view, we've used some things such as IBM Metro Mirror, SVC for implementing similar solutions. Instead of using the additional RecoverPoint, we used Global Mirror for continuous change volumes. We also used Metro Mirror. 

We used these other products in slightly different scenarios - not in exactly the same way we are using Dell.

How was the initial setup?

With the Dell EMC products, the implementation is quite straightforward. You have the implementation procedure. You can actually generate details to guide you through the implementation if you're not familiar with the process. From that aspect, it is fine. There's not really an issue. 

What about the implementation team?

I am able to handle the implementation for clients. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licenses are expensive.

What other advice do I have?

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.

Enables the rolling back of volume states to a point in time.

How has it helped my organization?

A traditional way of data protection is to perform backups. With a backup solution, we can implement Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs). However, we are not really sure how to reach Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs), especially when those RTOs have minimal values.

With RecoverPoint, we can "instantly mount" an image Point in Time in case of a problem. The RTO was improved, for sure.

What is most valuable?

Continuous Data Protection and Remote Data Protection are the most valuable features:

  • Continuous Data Protection: Enables the rolling back of volume states to a point in time within seconds.
  • Remote Data Protection: Permits the replication of environments in a synchronous or asynchronous way with minimal bandwidth consumption.

What needs improvement?

RecoverPoint journals consume a lot of storage to obtain a large RPO.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this product for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We did not encounter any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did not encounter any scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not called support for three years. The technical documentation is good, so I would give it a rating of 9/10. I am not sure that technical support is perfect.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used to deploy Oracle Data Guard for replicating Oracle, but RecoverPoint can replicate other environments because it acts on the storage side.

How was the initial setup?

We had an easy setup. Just remember to size your storage well.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I recommend using the CL licensing mode.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Other replication solutions are specific to products (Data Guard for Oracle, VMware replicator for VMware), but RecoverPoint can replicate multiple products.

What other advice do I have?

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.

Has continuous data replication with almost no data loss

What is our primary use case?

It can replicate data from a distant location and it can scan it as well. It has continuous data replication with almost no data loss.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using EMC RecoverPoint Continuous Remote Replication for two and a half years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's not for small operations. I don't think it needs improvement. It can replicate a lot of data storage.

How are customer service and technical support?

We offer support in Bangladesh and are a service provider. I have contacted technical support for their help. Their support is good. They are smart. They communicate well and are easy to understand. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not complex.

What other advice do I have?

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.
