Zerto Brings Enterprise-Class Replication to Microsoft Hyper-V
Industry’s First Cross-Hypervisor Replication Solution; Includes VMWare to Hyper-V Migration and Recovery
TechEd, Barcelona, Spain and Boston, MA — October 27, 2014 — Zerto, setting the standard for protection, recovery and migration of data in cloud and virtualized data centers, unveils Zerto Virtual Replication for Microsoft Hyper-V at TechEd Europe today in Barcelona. Zerto Virtual Replication is the first hypervisor-based replication solution to offer enterprise-class disaster recovery, data protection and workload mobility for both VMWare vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V.
The addition of Microsoft Hyper-V to the list of hypervisors supported by Zerto Virtual Replication is the first step in the realization of a Cloud Fabric unveiled by Zerto earlier this year. Zerto Cloud Fabric enables enterprises to utilize any type of workload on any hypervisor or any cloud, regardless of underlying infrastructure — taking the industry lead in the movement, management and protection of production workloads in the hybrid cloud.
Zerto Virtual Replication offers an RPO (Recovery Point Objective) of seconds and consistent point in time recovery for multiple-VM, production applications. Some additional features of Zerto Virtual Replication for Microsoft Hyper-V include:
– Storage agnostic replication — any storage can be used at the source and target site
– Hypervisor agnostic replication — Hyper-V to Hyper-V, vSphere to Hyper-V and Hyper-V to vSphere
– No snapshots — Zerto Virtual Replication uses continuous data protection to minimize impact on the production environment
– Automated orchestration of disaster recovery processes for application consistency
– Simple management interface for KPIs and reporting
“Zerto pioneered enterprise-class replication and recovery in virtualized environments, and is bringing this innovation to Hyper-V customers,” said Ziv Kedem, Zerto CEO and co-founder. “We’ve learned that many enterprises want to use a hybrid cloud strategy for their production workloads, but struggle with the challenges presented by workload mobility. Zerto Cloud Fabric enables both hardware and hypervisor agnostic workload portability, giving service providers and customers the option to choose the IT environment that best fits their business needs.”
Zerto Virtual Replication has disrupted the traditional hardware-centric market for disaster recovery and migration of applications. More than 700 enterprise customers in 29 countries use Zerto Virtual Replication in their production environments to protect, recover and migrate data and production applications. In addition, Zerto dominates the market for cloud-based recovery and replication and has become the de-facto standard for recovery and migration in cloud environments, with more than 150 Cloud Providers offering services powered by Zerto Virtual Replication.
Attendees of TechEd Europe can see live demos of Zerto Virtual Replication for Hyper-V at booth #47.
Zerto has developed a software-based platform for workload mobility, migration, protection and recovery in hybrid-cloud environments, allowing for seamless flexibility and manageability of applications whether they reside on-premise or in the cloud. The company’s Cloud Fabric platform is based on the award-winning Zerto Virtual Replication software which has become the standard for protection, recovery and migration of data in cloud and virtualized data centers.
