Site Recovery Manager

Very solid DR solution

Version 4.1 was a great starting point with some caveats (which now have been improved since) but otherwise a very solid DR product for virtual on-prem systems.

SRM for Site Disaster Recovery

Site Recovery Manager took a little to setup but once it is setup, it functions well and provides great redundancy.

Site Recovery Manager

Good option for the company size and purpose

The implementation is a bit tricky with many considerations and planning, but the management/administration after deployment is smooth, easy (user friendly), and very efficient for server management.

Site Recovery Manager

Manageability and stability as promised.

VMware works fantastic for our business. We are located in a hurricane area and co-located DR site. Both our data centers run VMware and this allows us to quickly fail-over from one site to the other as needed.

VMware SRM - 2013-14 Implementation

Vmware and the 3rd party vendors that we use are professional and place some pride in providing the best service for what we pay for.

Site Recovery Manager

Good for the price

Works great but with the new version, 6.1.1, you are forced to use the web client only and it doesn't appear as self explanatory as the thick client.

Efficiently restores files.

vRealize - Learning Capabilities of the Product Before Replacing It

The adoption early on gave us exactly what we needed for visibility into our environment. After running it for a while, we wanted more, so we actually looked at a competing product. During that time, we brought VMware back and let them know we wwere looking to replace them. They realized that we were not using it the way we could, for all the things their product could do, so they dedicated an abundance of resources to us to configure vRealize, upgrade what we had, and train my team how to use it. It took a couple months, but now it works well to bring us the metrics and visibility into our environment so that we can better prevent issues, maintain optimal operation, and keep everything running smooth for the business. It was just a matter of the vendor making sure we were still using it as we should and knew how to use it.
