Thinking of going with iLand, TierPoint, IBM Cloud, Expedient, Bluelock or Sungard for Disaster Recovery? 9 out of 10 of the top providers in Gartner’s 2018 DRaaS Magic Quadrant use Zerto’s IT Resilience Platform to power their DRaaS offerings.
DRaaS uses a cloud provider’s computers, networking and storage to act as the target site for replication and recovery of your company’s critical data and applications. Managed services in this capacity include the ongoing maintenance of the hardware and software, network connections and services, security and isolation, as well as the execution of the DR process should the need arise.
A move to cloud can be a huge cost and resource savings, especially when compared to the cost of managing a replication site. DRaaS replaces upfront investments with ongoing monthly bills and ensures higher performance and reliability by leaning on the cloud provider. ‘Test the water’ of moving applications to cloud for DR, without giving up control over production applications.
Multi-site capabilities from Zerto allow you to replicate between more than one site, enabling replication to one or more clouds for redundancy and long-term retention. Multi-tenant capabilities allow customers to share computing resources in a public or private cloud (for economies of scale) but keep each tenant’s data completely isolated and visible only to the specific tenant.
Zerto has deep VMware vCloud Director (vCD) integration – which many cloud providers use to manage their customers. vCD integration automates the protection, failover and failback of applications to and from vCD, all managed centrally.
Having issues on your production site? When using a managed cloud provider backed by Zerto, you have the option to move production to the cloud provider, and then automate failback from the cloud provider once your production site issues have been rectified and you are back online.
