ZertoCon 2021 QA 

If your organization is on its own journey to the cloud you should check out the details around ZertoCON 2021 Virtual. This year's sessions and content will include exciting announcements and information on how you can leverage continuous data protection for disaster recovery, backup, or migrations to easily accelerate your cloud journey.  

To get the inside scoop ahead of the event, VMblog spoke with Caroline Seymour, VP of Product Marketing for Zerto.

VMblog:  Can you give us some details around ZertoCON?  What can we expect?

Caroline Seymour:  Like last year, this year's ZertoCON will be virtual and free to attend. The event will be on April 20th and begins at 12:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. GMT. This year, we're featuring speakers from Zerto as well as some amazing customers and wonderful partners. The theme this year is unlocking continuous data protection, and we'll touch on items like leveraging continuous data protection for disaster recovery (DR), backup, and migrations to help our users accelerate their journey to the cloud. We're also going to have speakers who will discuss how to simplify management and protection of cloud workloads or on-premises while quickly recovering from ransomware attacks and other disruptions. It's a great line-up of speakers and topics.

VMblog:  What are some topics that will be discussed this year?

Seymour:  Specific topics will focus on what Zerto is really good at and where we are making significant advances: modern DR, data protection in a multi-cloud world, continuous backup, and data protection as code.

VMblog:  Are there any new trends in the industry that people should be aware of or should keep their eyes and ears on the lookout any time during the event?

Seymour:  Over the last year, industries worldwide have become particularly dependent on DR and backup solutions as a large sector of the workforce has shifted and continues to work remotely.  As part of that, we have seen significant acceleration of cloud-based DR and Backup and so this event will be showcasing many innovations Zerto is doing to address these requirements. We'll address everything from Kubernetes to SaaS and how continuous data protection works for all workloads. For the big picture, attendees will get an update on how we're continuing to turn the backup world upside down.

VMblog:  Is there any exciting news that you are planning to announce at ZertoCON this year?

Seymour:  Yes, we'll be making announcements around native cloud, specifically Zerto for AWS with a new solution for DR in the cloud. We have an exciting new offering for backup up SaaS data later this month. Additionally, we'll announce the GA of Zerto for Kubernetes, the result of Zerto embracing the evolution we've seen with the rise of containers by enabling a seamless way to protect next-gen applications. Lastly, we'll offer a glimpse into what's next on the Zerto roadmap for complete, continuous data protection.

VMblog:  Who are your event sponsors?

Seymour:  This year we have several amazing sponsors including AWS, IBM Cloud, and Microsoft at the Premier Level. At the Gold Level, we have Exagrid, Expedient, Flexential, iLand, and Tierpoint. Make sure to visit our virtual Exhibit Hall to connect with all of them.

VMblog:  Is there anything else you'd like event attendees to know?

Seymour:  Attendees should be ready for some informative sessions from industry experts so they can confidently walk away with knowledge about DR and data protection. Additionally, we will be covering the exciting announcements mentioned before, insight from the engineering perspective, and peer insight for why reducing downtime is so important. Our event will close out with the networking in the exhibition hall, which will allow attendees to interact with each other and connect with our sponsors as well. Join us to learn about Zerto but also join us for some fun, too!
