ending the week on a high note

nothing like ending the week on a high note. Been running RecoverPoint for VM for the past few weeks with lack luster results with the same level of support. Replication was painfully slow along with a UI that was severely lacking in features. However, after setting up Zerto, which took about 15 minutes or so, I was already replicating a 9.4TB VPG, with an ETA of 20h.  This same VPG in RP4VM nearly took 2 weeks to replicate.  Even after increasing the RPA resources to 8vCPU and 16GB RAM, we only ever got 11MB/sec at best.  With Zerto I’m seeing 112MB/sec constant.


Next week, I’ll have enough information to make the case to go with Zerto and drop RP4VM

Cannot Edit a VPG or recreate the VPG

So I ran into an issue where a client had recently requested a VM from backup and to restore it as a new VM, which was non-eventful.

The issue came up when I tried to edit failover IP within the ZVM, however, I could not make any changes to the VPG.  I contacted Zerto support and it was suggested that the  VPG be recreated.  Since the VMs are all hosted with Access Alto, I’ve removed the VPG and attempted to recreate it.  However, the vCD vApp was nowhere to be found.  Numerous logs where uploaded and  Zerto support could clearly see that this vApp was being filtered out.  It wasn’t until development took a look and suggested to remove the defunct VM from the vApp.   After the VM was removed, I was able to recreate the VPG and re-establish the sync.

The issue turned out to be that Zerto will not sync the  VPGs if even one VM is off or in a bad state.
