Zerto IT Resilience Platform for VMware vSphere

The Zerto IT Resilience Platform replication software for VMware vSphere enables you to select any virtual machine (VM) in VMware’s vCenter and automate data recovery, failover and failback. It’s that simple, with no storage configuration necessary and no agent installation on guest 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 IT Resilience Platform software 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
  • Use an intuitive GUI embedded in VMware’s vCenter
  • Protect multiple virtual disks connected to the same VM
  • Recover immediately with the click of a button
  • Support replication of RDM devices
  • View and manage local and remote sites from the same vCenter
  • Deliver consistent protection across your company and across multiple sites

Enterprise-class Replication for VMware

Zerto’s enterprise-class replication software for VMware replaces legacy array-based replication solutions. It provides the flexibility, scalability and ease of use expected in the virtual world without compromising any functionality required for protecting mission-critical applications.

  • Achieve seconds of RPO with continuous replication
  • Recover applications instantly and automatically, providing recovery time objectives (RTO) 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
  • Automatically increase and decrease the journal size based on the amount of changed data, ensuring protection even when applications generate large data bursts
  • Monitor built-in reports with and performance UI
  • Centralize management to simplify tasks, ensuring application availability
  • Extend disaster recovery to remote locations with Remote Office / Branch Office (ROBO) protection managed by a single vCenter
  • Validate recovery for live failover
  • Capabilities expanded for REST API for orchestration, events and alerts
  • VRA tabs and workflows improve environment maintenance

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 consistently to the same point in time.

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.

Long-term Retention with No Production Impact

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