Telefonica Leverages @ZertoCorp Virtual Replication to Improve #Cloud Reliability for Enterprises #DRaaS
Telefónica today announced it has added Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to its enterprise cloud service offering, VDC. This new functionality ensures Telefónica VDC clients can cost effectively production applications both to the cloud and in the cloud, using Telefonica’s latest virtual private networks technology and Zerto’s award-winning, hypervisor-based solucion, Zerto Virtual Replication.

Telefónica continues to evolve its Cloud offering for enterprises, adapting it to client needs. One of the most important priorities for companies is the security of the data stored in the Cloud, which has historically been a complicated and expensive undertaking. With VDC DRaaS, customers enjoy the benefits of cloud automation while ensuring mission-critical applications remain protected and available, even in the event of a disaster. Recovery time is also improved, as the data is replicated in two datacenters in Spain and connected with Telefónica fiber ring.

VDC DRaaS allows companies to host their critical applications in the cloud and have their virtual machines (VMs) replicated in two different datacenters. This configuration enables clients to have two copies geographically distributed in the event of an unplanned outage. These copies are created with Zerto Virtual Replication, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The replication solution is natively integrated with every layer of VDC 2.0, which guarantees a powerful solution in terms of RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and RPO (Recovery Point Objective). The solution is flexible in terms of contract and management: A client can replicate machines from its own private infrastructure or replicate Telefónica’s infrastructure from one datacenter to another. To guarantee security, replication is done through Telefonica private networks technology. Customers can also configure and monitor the replication themselves or delegate these tasks in Telefónica Managed Services. Furthermore, it’s cost-effective as it can be provisioned in pay-per-use mode, so customers only pay for what they use during a set period of time.

“With the introduction of this offering, Telefónica is demonstrating its commitment to providing user-friendly, storage-agnostic DR that delivers value,” said Ziv Kedem, Zerto CEO and co-founder. “Service providers like Telefónica are increasingly eager to offer DR services that seamlessly align with their cloud environments and meet the rigorous standards their customers expect.”
