Zerto Makes BC/DR Management Even Simpler with Zerto Virtual Replication 3.1
Enhances Scalability and Expands Cloud Manager Capabilities
Boston, MA and Herzliya, Israel — December 20, 2013 — Zerto, setting the standard for disaster recovery in virtualized and cloud environments, today introduced Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) 3.1, which builds on the advancements of ZVR 3.0 to centralize and simplify disaster recovery with improved scalability, maintainability and alerting capabilities. Through hypervisor-based replication technology, ZVR 3.1 enables both cloud service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to quickly and easily manage workload protection to meet changing business needs, while ensuring minimal downtime.
Zerto Cloud Manager — Simplified BC/DR Management
In ZVR 3.0, Zerto introduced the Zerto Cloud Manager (ZCM), which provided one view of all customer (or department) resources and service levels across physical locations. ZVR 3.1 extends these capabilities providing CSPs and enterprises one pane of glass for management, orchestration, reporting and monitoring of BC/DR operations across multiple sites. With the new ZCM, IT administrators can protect and mobilize production workloads between multiple locations within a single web-based user interface, all with just a few clicks.
The ZVR journal enables recovery to multiple points in time, ensuring successful recovery from disasters and logical corruptions. With 3.1, the size of the journal automatically increases and decreases based on the amount of changed data, completely eliminating the management overhead of maintaining journal size and ensuring protection even when applications generate large bursts of data.
Additional features of ZVR 3.1 include:
- Increased manageability of alerts and events with a new centralized tab for better cause/effect analysis
- Expanded REST API capabilities for orchestration, events and alerts
- Improved environment maintenance using new VRA tabs and workflows
“Selected by over 100 cloud service providers, and with 200% customer growth in 2013, ZVR 3.1 is becoming the standard disaster recovery solution used in virtualized and cloud environments,” said Ziv Kedem, co-founder and CEO, Zerto. “We took something that is one of the most complex pieces of the data center, and made it simple to install, use and manage. ZVR 3.1 builds on our commitment to simple, effective disaster recovery.”
Zerto Virtual Replication 3.1 has been in private beta with existing Zerto customers and today becomes available to all.
Zerto has developed the first hypervisor-based, disaster recovery and replication software for virtualized environments, offering simplicity and greatly reduced operational and maintenance costs. Developed exclusively for virtualized and cloud environments, Zerto’s award-winning solution, Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) is rapidly becoming the standard for disaster recovery and business continuity in the modern data center. ZVR received ‘Best of Show’ at VMworld 2011, as well as 2012 and 2011 ‘Product of the Year’ Gold Awards. For more information, please visit: http://www.zerto.com
