VMware Data Replication Done Right
Until now the most common data replication technologies and methods essential to mission-critical BC/DR initiatives have been tied to the physical environment. Although they do work in the virtual environment, they aren’t optimized for it.

Until now the most common data replication technologies and methods essential to mission-critical BC/DR initiatives have been tied to the physical environment. Although they do work in the virtual environment, they aren’t optimized for it. With the introduction of hypervisor-based replication, Zerto elevates BC/DR up the infrastructure stack where it belongs: in the virtualization layer.

Challenges:

  • If a data replication solution isn’t virtual-ready, management overhead could be more than doubled.
  • Customer data is always growing, so a company can find its information inventory expanding exponentially and not have a data replication solution to keep pace.
  • Some replication methods remain firmly tied to a single vendor and hardware platform, limiting the organization’s ability to get the best solutions – and service – at the best price.

Benefits of Hypervisor-Based Replication:

  • Granularity - The ability to replicate at the correct level of any virtual entity is critical. Zerto’s solution can replicate all virtual machines and all of the meta data as well.
  • Scalability - Zerto’s hypervisor-based replication solution is software-based so it can be deployed and managed easily, no matter how fast the infrastructure expands.
  • Hardware-agnostic - Zerto’s data replication is hardware-agnostic, supporting all storage arrays, so organizations can replicate from anything to anything. This allows users to mix storage technologies such as SAN & NAS, and virtual disk types such as RDM & VMFS.
Introducing Cloud Disaster Recovery

Can mission-critical apps really be protected in the cloud?

Introducing: Cloud Disaster Recovery

Today, enterprises of all sizes are virtualizing their mission-critical applications, either within their own data center, or with an external cloud vendor. One key driver is to leverage the flexibility and agility virtualization offers to increase availability, business continuity and disaster recovery.

With the cloud becoming more of an option, enterprises of all sizes are looking for the cloud, be it public, hybrid or private, to become part of their BC/DR solution. However, these options do not always exist. Virtualization has created the opportunity, but there is still a significant technology gap. Mission-critical applications can be effectively virtualized and managed; however, the corresponding data cannot be effectively protected in a cloud environment.

Additional Challenges for Enterprises with the Cloud:

  • Multi-tenancy
  • Data protection & mobility
  • Lack of centralized management

Solutions with Zerto Virtual Replication:

  • Seamless integration with no environment change
  • Multi-site support
  • Hardware-agnostic replications
Application Protection & Recovery for VMware
Protect Applications, Not Data. How-to Guide: Application Protection and Recovery for VMware

Protect Applications, Not Data

How-to Guide: Application Protection and Recovery for VMware

When organizations are considering a business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) solution, they need to look for a solution that not only protects and recovers the data, but also protects and recovers the application. Virtualized applications typically span multiple VMs and are more complex in terms of dependencies and infrastructure. They require recovery with write-order fidelity, something most replications solutions do not supply

Zerto Application Protection Features:

  • VM-level consistency grouping
  • Crash-consistent application recovery
  • Recovery of specific application objects
Disaster Recovery Guide: DR in Virtualized Environments
In this guide you will learn about BC/DR planning with Zerto's Disaster Recovery Solutions for Virtualized Environments.
In today’s always-on, information-driven organizations, business continuity depends completely on IT infrastructures that are up and running 24/7. The costs of downtime are huge and data loss can put a company out of business. Data loss is not only caused by natural disasters, power outages, hardware failure and user errors, but more and more by software problems and cyber security related disasters. Therefore thorough security and business continuity strategies are crucial for modern businesses, minimizing data loss and downtime. Especially now, as data centers become more and more software defined, these private, hybrid and public clouds become more vulnerable to these kinds of threats.
