October 01, 2014
ASHBURN, Va.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Virtacore today announced it joined the Zerto Cloud Disaster Recovery Ecosystem (ZCE) to offer clients cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) services powered by Zerto’s award-winning hypervisor-based solution Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR). As a member of the ecosystem, Virtacore is able to provide unparalleled, real-time cloud DR services, enabling businesses of all sizes to cost-effectively protect production applications both to the cloud and in the cloud.
“Sixty-six percent of CIOs have not seen a fully executed and tested Disaster Recovery Plan from their IT Teams over the past 12 months and, historically, building a full second suite has been overwhelmingly expensive for our customers to build and execute,” said George Naspo, CEO of Virtacore. “Thanks to Zerto’s hypervisor-based solution, our customers have complete environmental control and can now cost-effectively enjoy all of the benefits of cloud automation, get full recovery point objective (RPO) reporting and unlimited tests, while ensuring their mission-critical applications remain protected and available — even in the event of an unplanned outage.”
“By joining Zerto’s Cloud DR Ecosystem, Virtacore is demonstrating its commitment to delivering user-friendly, storage-agnostic DR at an attractive price,” said Sean Casey, director of cloud sales at Zerto. “Partnerships like this one confirm service providers are eager to offer DR services that seamlessly align with their cloud environments and meet the rigorous standards their customers expect.”
The Cloud DR offering that Virtacore will deliver is based on Zerto’s award winning solution, Zerto Virtual Replication. Companies may choose DR-as-a-Service (DRaaS), protecting on-premise applications to the cloud, and/or In-Cloud DR, protecting applications deployed in the cloud and replicated to a secondary cloud data center.
As a leading cloud services provider specializing in virtual Infrastructure as a Service solutions utilizing VMWare, Virtacore is uniquely positioned to help businesses leverage the cloud. Whether it’s production, disaster recovery options, test and development, or virtual desktop infrastructure workloads, we have all the IaaS solutions to best fit your needs.
