In this guide you will learn about Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery 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. Being prepared for any data related disaster is key!

  • The cost and business impact of downtime and data loss can be immenseUtilizing Zerto’s Disaster Recovery solutions can greatly mitigate downtime and data loss with RTO’s of minutes and RPO’s of seconds
  • 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
  • Zerto’s DR solutions are applicable for both on-premise and cloud (DRaaS) virtual environments
  • Having a plan and process in place will help you mitigate the impact of an outage on your business

In this booklet we provide insights into the challenges, needs, strategies, and solutions for disaster recovery and business continuity, especially in modern, virtualized environments and the public cloud.

Application & Desktop Delivery for Dummies
In this book, you learn how solutions, such as Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS), replace traditional application deployment with on-demand application delivery, and why it's right for your organization.
Applications are essential to the businesses and organizations of all sizes and in all industries. End-users need to have continuous and reliable access to their applications whether working in the office or remotely, at any time of the day or night, and from any device. With the advent of cloud computing, office desktops with installed applications (that had to be constantly updated) have become a thing of the past — application streaming, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and hosted applications are the future (and the present, for that matter). Application virtualization is an easy way to manage, distribute, and maintain business applications. Virtualized applications run on a server, while end-users view and interact with their applications over a network via a remote display protocol. Remote applications can be completely integrated with the user’s desktop so that they appear and behave like local applications. Today, you can dynamically publish applications to remote users in several ways. The server-based operating system (OS) instances that run remote applications can be shared with other users (a terminal services desktop), or the application can be running on its own OS instance on the server (a VDI desktop).
Anywhere Access to ERP Applications with Parallels RAS
Today’s employees work outside traditional times and locations, often on personal devices. Parallels RAS applications, including your business-critical ERP applications,  to  any device, anywhere.
Workforce mobility is a growing requirement for businesses of all types and sizes. To be more productive, your workers need access to applications—including business-critical enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications, such as Microsoft Dynamics, SAP, and Sage—using any device, at any time. Meanwhile, you need to safeguard and maintain control of your data and applications. To address these challenges, Parallels has developed industry-leading application and desktop delivery solutions that give your workforce alwayson access to ERP applications, while also centralizing management for increased security and reduced costs.
How to Build a SANless SQL Server Failover Cluster Instance in Google Cloud Platform
This white paper walks through the steps to build a two-node failover cluster between two instances in the same region, but in different Zones, within the Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
If you are going to host SQL Server on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) you will want to make sure it is highly available with a SQL Failover Cluster. One of the best and most economical ways to do that is to build a SQL Server Failover Cluster Instance (FCI). In this guide, we will walk through the steps to build a two-node failover cluster between two instances in the same region, but in different Zones, within the GCP.

After the Lockdown – Reinventing the Way Your Business Works
As a result of the Covid-19 lockdown experience, temporary measures will be scaled back and adoption of fully functional “Remote” workplaces will now be accelerated. A reduction in the obstacles for moving to virtual desktops and applications will be required so that businesses can be 100% productive during Business Continuity events. The winners will be those organizations who use and explore the possibilities of a virtual workplace every day.

As lockdowns end, organziations are ready to start planning on how to gear their business for more agility, with a robust business continuity plan for their employees and their technology. A plan that includes technology which enables their business to work at full capacity rather than just getting by.

A successful Business Continuity Plan includes key technology attributes needed for employees to be 100% productive before, during and after a Covid-19 type event. The technology should be:

  • A device agnostic, simple, intuitive and responsive user experienceIt should enhance data security
  • It should increase the agility of IT service delivery options
  • Reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of staff technology delivery
  • Must be simple to deploy, manage and expand remotely

The winners will be those organizations who use and explore the possibilities of a virtual workplace every day.

As an affordable but scalable all-in-one virtual desktop and application solution, Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) allows users to securely access virtual workspaces from anywhere, on any device, at any time. Parallels RAS centralizes management of the IT infrastructure, streamlines multi-cloud deployments, enhances data security and improves process automation.

Top 10 Best Practices for VMware Backups
Topics: vSphere, backup, Veeam
Backup is the foundation for restores, so it is essential to have backups always available with the required speed. The “Top 10 Best Practices for vSphere Backups” white paper discusses best practices with Veeam Backup & Replication and VMware vSphere.

More and more companies come to understand that server virtualization is the way for modern data safety. In 2019, VMware is still the market leader and many Veeam customers use VMware vSphere as their preferred virtualization platform. But, backup of virtual machines on vSphere is only one part of service Availability. Backup is the foundation for restores, so it is essential to have backups always available with the required speed. The “Top 10 Best Practices for vSphere Backups” white paper discusses best practices with Veeam Backup & Replication and VMware vSphere, such as:

•    Planning your data restore in advance
•    Keeping track of your data backup software updates and keeping your backup tools up-to-date
•    Integrating storage based snapshots into your Availability concept
•    And much more!
