Zerto IT Resilience Platform for VMware vSphere | Zerto

Zerto for VMware vSphere on Public Cloud

The Zerto platform comes with an enterprise class always-on replication engine for VMware vSphere and enables you to replicate any virtual machine (VM) in VMware’s vCenter to automate data recovery, failover, and failback. It’s that simple—no storage configuration necessary and no agent installation required.

Simplify Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery for VMware vSphere Replication

Zerto’s approach to disaster recovery and cross-hypervisor replication ends vendor lock-in.

VMware Replication Solution without Storage Constraints

Zerto’s software-only platform for VMware protects at the VM and VMDK level, which means that you can make protection decisions without storage constraints.

  • Replicate single or multiple VMs, and protect multiple virtual disks connected to the same VM
  • Recover immediately with the click of a button.
  • Support replication of RDM devices.
  • Deliver consistent protection across your company and across multiple sites.

Enterprise-class Replication for VMware

Zerto’s Platform for VMware replaces legacy array-based replication solutions. It provides the flexibility, scalability, and ease of use required in the virtual world—without compromising functionality needed to protect mission-critical applications.

  • Achieve recovery point objectives (RPOs) of seconds with always-on replication.
  • Recover applications instantly and automatically with recovery time objectives (RTOs) of minutes
  • Protect thousands of VMs with scale-out replication architecture
  • Eliminate snapshots and reduce application performance impact.
  • Recover from logical or operator errors with journal-based, point-in-time recovery.
  • Non-disruptive failover testing to prove recoverability.

Deeply Integrated with VMware for Unrivaled Performance

Zerto’s strategic alliance with VMware unlocks the full potential of VMware tools, giving you access to the best of our deepened our integration—providing more capabilities than ever before.

  • With support for vSphere Virtual Volumes (vVols), you can achieve storage savings, increased visibility, and additional workload control.
  • VMware vCloud Director integration creates the most interoperable experience, including tenant self-service capabilities, such as disaster recovery and data protection operations for MSPs.
  • Support for all the VMware features used in day-to-day management like vMotion, Storage vMotion, DRS, Storage DRS, and more.

Support for VMware on Public Cloud

Seamlessly and easily migrate VMware workloads to VMware on Public Cloud without changing your applications and take disaster recovery (DR) to the cloud

  • Protect and recover an entire VMware-based data center with no modifications to the VMs or management tools.
  • Replicate from an on-premises environment to VMware on Public Cloud or from VMware on Public Cloud to another Public Cloud site for intra-cloud DR
  • Replicate, test then migrate VMware-based application groups to VMware on Public Cloud without the need to retrain VMware experts
  • Use Zerto on Cloud environments that have VMware-based offerings, like Google Cloud VMware Engine, Oracle Cloud VMware Solution, Azure VMware Solution, IBM Cloud, or one of our 450+ Managed Service Provider partners

Key Benefits

Multi-tier Application Protection & Recovery

With Zerto’s Virtual Protection Groups (VPGs), you can group VMs and virtual disks to be protected and recovered together to the same point in time.

Virtual Volumes Support

Support for vSphere vVols, so you can take advantage of finer VM-level control, streamlined storage operations, and greater flexibility they offer.

Long-term Retention with No Production Impact

Zerto’s simple, scalable platform makes use of your already-replicated applications for long-term safekeeping. Move from periodic backup to continuous data protection with zero production impact because there are no snapshots or agents.

Rewind and Resume with Journal-Based Recovery

Zerto’s journaling technology constantly logs all the changes users make to applications and data. Because changes are continuously written to the journal, it delivers any point-in-time recoverability.
