Happy New Year! Balls dropping, champagne, saying goodbye to the old and ringing in the new. It is also that time of year for the hopeful/dreaded New Year’s resolution. There is no doubt that having true assurance and confidence in the resilience of their IT infrastructure is at the top of any forward-thinking and vigilant infrastructure and operations leaders’ resolutions list for 2018. The alternative – not preparing for IT disruptions whether due to natural disaster, ransomware attack or, deploying new infrastructure – is beyond risky.
IT Resilience is the capacity of an enterprise to move beyond Disaster Recovery and build an IT infrastructure that embraces change, mitigates any disaster or interruption and creates uninterrupted business. According to Gartner’s Market Guide for IT Resilience Orchestration Automation, John Morency, December 2017, “global end-user spending on ITRO solutions will nearly triple by 2021 provided that the 12% to 15% compound annual growth rate is sustainable during that time period.” This is not hard to believe, as technology evolves, as organizations increasingly move to the cloud, and as disasters by-and-large are unpredictable, yet inevitable. Is it any surprise that organizations want to protect and prepare themselves with a solution that they can trust?
More than 5,000 customers across 70 countries are protecting their business and brand with Zerto. Not to mention, in Gartner Market Guide for IT Resilience Orchestration Automation, John Morency, December 2017, Zerto is recognized as a Representative Vendor for Zerto’s Virtual Replication (ZVR) for ITRO. Vendors in this market were compared and contrasted across nine IT Resilience Orchestration Automation capabilities, such as: Production Workload Failover and Failback and Workload Onboarding Into Public Cloud. Zerto was listed as supporting 9 out of 9 of the ITRO Supported capabilities.
