Zerto and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) Automate Failover Testing
By Shannon Snowden, Zerto’s Sr. Technical Architect
A major component of the Zerto Cloud Continuity Platform is DevOps automation via Zerto APIs. Working with world-class IT process management tools is key, to allow for proactive, hands-off IT management between the disparate environments that Zerto protects.
One of the most capable IT process management tools in the industry is HP Operations Orchestration (HPOO), recently renamed HPE OO. So, we are excited to announce our Gold level partnership with Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE). Zerto has been working diligently with HPE and at HPE Discover, we will be demonstrating the first product of our partnership. We will be showing the first content package for HPE OO that is a game changer.
This free content package fully automates disaster recovery (DR) failover testing. Imagine being able to automatically meet service level agreements for failover testing by simply adding the Zerto Automated Failover Testing for HPE OO content package to your HPE OO studio.
We’ve done all the hard work, so once you have the content package, just set a few parameters like the IP address of the Zerto Virtual Manager, the Zerto Virtual Protection Group you want to automatically test and then set the schedule. That’s it. You can find the content pack here.

If you aren’t familiar with how Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) does disaster recovery testing, the most important thing to know that it is totally non-disruptive to the production environment. So with the Zerto Automated Failover Testing for HPE OO content package, you can automatically do DR testing on your schedule, without concern for disrupting production.
Of course, you’ll need HPE OO and Zerto already to make the content package work. You don’t have HPE OO? No problem, you can download the community edition for free. You don’t have Zerto Virtual Replication? No problem, download a free trial today and get automated disaster recovery protection.
