Zerto and Google Cloud VMware Engine Launches with First Early Adopter Customer, QAD
Zerto has partnered with Google Cloud to bring our industry-leading IT Resilience PlatformTM to Google Cloud VMware Engine. This partnership enables Zerto and Google Cloud customers to easily migrate and protect native VMware workloads on Google Cloud without having to re-architect existing VMware-based applications allowing IT staff to continue using their policies, procedures and VMware tools. Customers can easily leverage Google Cloud as a replacement for their Disaster Recovery (DR) site and with Zerto’s continuous data protection and industry-leading RTOs and RPOs, Zerto delivers 24/7 availability to your organization.
Today, Google Cloud announced Google Cloud VMware Engine, a fully native, first-party solution for customers to run applications on VMware Cloud Foundation in Google Cloud, which will be generally available this quarter. Google Cloud also announced integrations with third-party platforms with Zerto as a key IT resilience partner. This partnership ensures customers can successfully run and manage their data protection, disaster recovery and migration projects seamlessly across on-premises and cloud environments. In advance of the launch, Zerto partnered with Google on a controlled release with several customers and QAD, a joint customer, has started initial testing. QAD is excited about the new Zerto and Google Cloud partnership and is looking forward to the benefits that Zerto and Google Cloud will bring to their organization:
“With Google Cloud VMware Engine, we are able to quickly extend the enterprise class disaster recovery capabilities we have become accustomed to with Zerto to the Google Cloud,” says Scott Lawson, Director, IT Architecture at QAD.
Lawson went on to say “As a premier supplier of ERP software aimed at the manufacturing space, partnering with Zerto and Google helps us continue to meet RPOs of seconds and RTOs of minutes while taking advantage of the lower costs that the cloud offers – all while continuing to deliver the superior experience that our customers have come to expect. In addition, it will allow us to retire a datacenter by the end of this year and reallocate resources and cost savings to more strategic business initiatives”.
QAD is looking to public clouds like Google Cloud to be able to scale quickly to support their customer growth. Zerto’s IT Resilience PlatformTM will give them an easy way to move workloads to the cloud to support this growth, along with the ability to protect these workloads to meet the aggressive SLAs their company requires.
