Scary DR Stories Webinar

Date: Tuesday, October 31 - 11:00am ET/ 4:00pm BST

Hosted by: Zerto Senior Manager, Product Marketing, Kyleigh Fitzgerald

Did you hear that noise? It sounded like it came from under the server…

IT professionals are no strangers to the things that go bump in the night, but believe it or not, there are some really scary things these folks encounter on the job.

Ever hear the story of the snake behind the rack? Or how about the one where the backup guy was uncontactable - during an outage - and it was discovered he used a secret graffiti code to label all of the last 10 years of backup tapes?

Say goodbye to a restful night’s sleep because the real-life disaster recovery stories, submitted by our extended community of I.T. pros, will leave your spine chilled and your hair standing on-end.

Join Kyleigh Fitzgerald, Sr. Manager, Product Marketing, and the three contest finalists, live, as they recount their terrifying tales of real-life data disasters on this webinar and see who will be crowned the Scary DR Stories 2023 winner.

Whether you believe in the paranormal or not, one thing is for certain – their DR stories are the stuff of nightmares!

Read unbiased peer reviews on how companies are seeing real results in improving data protection, ROI and efficiency with Zerto.

One of our customers highlights how they have low RPOs because of how efficient the near-synchronous replication:

"The near-synchronous replication is key. That has allowed us to provide the low RPOs that we promise. For key systems, that has been the deciding factor."

An IT analyst at a wholesale/distributor company has seen significant reductions in RPOs and loves our near-synchronous replication as well:

"The near-synchronous replication is one of the primary reasons we're using Zerto because we have recovery intervals of sub-five seconds. On a scale of 10, where 10 is "very important", this feature is a 10"

Rohit highlights the ease of use of Zerto’s DR Product:

“This tool has changed the way of DR or DR tests. Very simple and easy to manage, and the best part of we can make a point of recovery of protected VMs, and the DR is possible for VMs running with RDMs.”
