Zerto IT Resilience Platform Powers Cloud Recovery Service from Sungard AS
IT resilience is vital in today’s business world, especially with the pressures from digital transformation, increased compliance and ‘always-on’ customer demands. This means that, for companies who provide cloud management and recovery solutions, there’s never been a better time to solidify their offerings and cement themselves as a leading enabler of these requirements.
That’s why Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) has partnered with Zerto to enhance its Cloud Recovery offering. With fast, reliable RTOs and RPOs, Sungard customers can now benefit from consistent and reliable multi-site replication that can be tested and validated at any time. Additional features such as increased scalability to 1,000+ virtual environments, and the ability for customers to use their own Zerto licenses, bring greater freedom for organizations to meet their business SLAs and compliance requirements.
Zerto’s experience in providing enterprise-class disaster recovery software for virtualized and cloud environments is well-proven, with 100% of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DraaS) providers recognized in the most recent Forrester Wave using its technology to underpin their solutions. Adding Sungard as a strategic partner, after providing disaster recovery and mobility capabilities for the company’s internal infrastructure, will make the Zerto IT Resilience Platform available to even more end users.
“As we evaluated various technologies to expand our cloud recovery portfolio, we chose Zerto as the underlying technology for a storage and hypervisor-agnostic solution with aggressive RTO and RPO recovery times for virtualized environments,” said Joseph George, Vice President of Product Management, Global Recovery Services, Sungard AS. “Our positive experience working with Zerto was a key factor in choosing their technology to be part of this service.”
