Starting at $745 per year, Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) pricing represents a well-rounded Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution, but one that’s directed primarily at midsize and large companies. That’s due primarily to the need for an experienced IT staff to fully operate it. Zerto offers more overall flexibility than it’s competition so, if your needs are unique, then it’s definitely worth checking out.

The prerequisite components blur the cost a bit more. For example, if you are planning on using Microsoft Hyper-V, also plan on purchasing Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager. It’s also important to consider the costs of hosting the Zerto Cloud Appliance in AWS or another third-party cloud provider, like Rackspace ($10,300.00 at Rackspace).

Most Disaster Recovery As A Service offerings provide a variety of specialized backup methods including bare metal backup/restore, database, virtual machine (VM), and mail server recovery. Zerto instead focuses on safeguarding VMs only through replication to another host on your network or to an external cloud such as Amazon Web Services ($6,415.00 at Amazon) (AWS).

Zerto Pricing Example (15 VMs)

…the Zerto Cloud Appliance (ZCA) must be installed and powered on in an AWS M3.xlarge EC2 instance at all times. This means you’re spending $2300 per Zerto instance, per year. When you add that to the already expensive licensing cost which is minimum of 15 VMs at $1000 per year or $15,000 you get $17,300.
