How to Protect and Recover SAP, Oracle and SharePoint
Fortune 100 Company leverages Zerto Virtual Replication for BC/DR for their Global IT Infrastructure
Prior to Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR), this company leveraged an array-based process that gave very high RTOs – 15 minutes per VM. For a mission critical application with many virtual machines at a Fortune 100 company, this is not acceptable. With ZVR, not only were they able to realize a RTO of minutes and RPO of seconds, they were able to fast track an application migration down to 18 minutes.
The company is one of the most recognizable names in IT. With consumers and corporations alike purchasing its products, ensuring the availability of applications and information is critical. As a Fortune 100 company, risks could not be made with its datacenter. However, the current BC/DR process was considered makeshift, especially by its own high standards.
The goal is to build a business continuity solution to protect their tier-1 applications – SAP, Oracle portal applications and Microsoft SharePoint. If these applications are not available, it could impact their business. Additionally, the company has a very large, global IT environment and was looking to expand virtualization adoption across their infrastructure to streamline management. A BC/DR solution that was flexible would accelerate the adoption of virtualization in the environment and help them align their business and IT strategy.

Quotes from the Case Study:
- “It was very clear that Zerto Virtual Replication was built for a virtualized environment.”
- “With Zerto, we completed an application migration in just 18 minutes. We were just blown away.”
- “We were able to really easily pick and choose the virtual machines we wanted to protect. With a LUN-based solution, you have to move VMs around to get them on the right LUN to replicate – we don’t have that kind of time.”
