Discover Cross-Hypervisor Replication with Zerto
Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) is the first hypervisor-based replication solution to offer enterprise-class cross-hypervisor replication, disaster recovery, data protection and workload mobility. With ZVR 4.0, IT departments can automatically convert Hyper-V VMs to VMware, convert VMware VMs to Hyper- V, and convert Hyper-V to AWS for increased flexibility and cost savings.

True 15-Minute RTO for Mission-Critical VM Systems with Vembu VMBackup Replication
Vembu Backup & Disaster Recovery (BDR) provides IT with a Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) system capable of meeting even more aggressive RTO and RPO goals than the previous release. For highly active database-driven systems, Vembu VMBackup leverages VMtools and VMware Changed Block Tracking (CBT) to perform incremental backups in 15-minute intervals with minimal impact on query processing. As a result, IT can limit data loss to 15 minutes of processing on active mission critical VMs.

The only way to recover a VM with full functionality and full performance without performing an explicit restore operation is through VM replication. Maintaining a replica VM, however, requires frequent and potentially expensive update processes that involve both explicit backup and implicit restore operations. To enable the extensive use of replication by IT, VMBackup adds critical optimizations to both restore and replication operations that dramatically minimize overhead on ESXi hosts and production VMs to just VM snapshot processing. Specifically, a BDR Backup server running on a VM is able to leverage hot-add SCSI transfer mode to write logical disk and logical disk snapshot files directly to a vSphere datastore, without involving the ESXi host for anything more than creating a VM snapshot.

A key a value proposition for Vembu VMBackup is its ability to directly read and write all backup and restore data directly to and from a datastore snapshot. As a result, Vembu VMBackup offloads all I/O overhead from production VMs and ESXi hosts, which is critical for maintaining an aggressive DRM strategy in a highly active virtual environment. What’s more, the performance of Vembu VMBackup in openBench lab's test environment made it possible to enhance support for a mission-critical OLTP application running on a VM using a combination of incremental backups for backup and replication. As a result, they were able to comply with a 30-minute RPO, restore the VM to a production environment in 5 minutes, and return to full-production level processing of business transactions—850 cTPS—in under 15 minutes.

VMBackup adds a new replica management module that enables an IT administrator to fully manage an initial failover and later finalize failover or failback with consolidation. In addition, BDR backup server simplifies all management functions by eliminating the need to run a separate client module on a BDR backup server, which becomes its own client within the BDR reporting hierarchy.
