Berenschot Group Chooses ZXFactory for Cloud-based BC/DR Powered by Zerto
Ede, The Netherlands and Boston, MA, USA — March 13, 2012 — ZXFactory announced today that the company’s new DR-a-a-S (Disaster Recovery as a Service) offering, ZX Continue, has been selected by the Berenschot Group. Named one of the top three consulting firms by Management Team magazine, Berenschot is an independent management consulting firm with 450 employees worldwide. ZX Continue is powered by Zerto Virtual Replication, the industry’s first hypervisor-based replication solution.
“With ZX Continue, using Zerto technology, it is easy to quickly and efficiently failover the data center,” said Jan Willem van der Grift, head of IT services at Berenschot. “In case of disaster, the data center can be completely up and running at the failover location even before our employees log in again at home after leaving the office. With ZX Continue and Zerto, the production data loss is minimal.”
ZXFactory is the first cloud provider in The Netherlands to offer a DR-a-a-S solution for VMWare environments. By using Zerto’s cloud offering, including multi-tenant architecture, infrastructure abstraction and full VMWare vCloud Director integration, ZXFactory can provide a robust offering that protects even mission-critical applications in the cloud. Zerto Virtual Replication is a hypervisor-based business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) solution, which replicates data within the virtual infrastructure instead of in the storage arrays. This means that ZX Continue does not need to match each customer’s brand of storage in order to provide replication services. Zerto’s innovation, hypervisor-based replication, allows ZX to offer a cost-effective and flexible service to its customers.
“Implementing a DR solution for our customers used to be complicated and time-consuming involving a lot of customization and scripting and was difficult to test,” said Chango Eersel, Director, ZXFactory. “Zerto has eliminated this complexity, enabling us to offer simple, straightforward DR-as-a-Service to our customers. It is automated and efficient, but still tailored to fit our customers’ business needs. By implementing Zerto for our customer Berenschot, we have made it possible for them to continue to do business even if a disaster severely impacts their server infrastructure.”
Zerto provides enterprise-class business continuity and disaster recovery solutions for virtualized infrastructure and cloud. Zerto won a 2011 Product of the Year Gold award as well as Best of Show at VMworld 2011. Zerto Virtual Replication is the industry’s first hypervisor-based replication solution for tier-one applications and replaces traditional array-based BC/DR solutions that were not built to deal with the virtual paradigm.
