Zerto Debuts Disruptive Backup Technology at VMworld

August 23, 2018

Demonstrating how customers and partners can leverage one continuous data protection platform to replace disparate backup, DR and cloud mobility solutions

Boston, US – August 23, 2018 Zerto, an industry leader for IT resilience, today announced it will be showcasing how it is replacing cumbersome legacy and periodic backup solutions with best-in-breed continuous data protection (CDP) at this year’s VMworld in Las Vegas. Presenting a preview of the Zerto 7 IT Resilience PlatformTM at booth #1148, Zerto will demonstrate how its recently announced platform, built on CDP, is disrupting the market by converging backup, disaster recovery (DR) and cloud mobility solutions into a single, scalable platform. Attendees will be able to sign up for early access to Zerto 7 and test their IT resilience maturity level via a new benchmarking tool developed from research gathered by Zerto and IDC.

According to new research from IDC, 50 percent of organizations globally have suffered an unrecoverable data event in the last three years. With this mind, it’s clear that enterprise organizations need to prioritize ways to protect themselves throughout the digital transformation journey. Zerto 7, which was unveiled at ZertoCON 2018, does exactly this. It is an evolution of the IT Resilience Platform that offers a new way of doing backup.

At the show, Zerto will preview how its IT Resilience Platform, using a new functionality called an ‘elastic journal’, can protect data from seven seconds to seven years rather than depending on incremental and unreliable backups that are ill-equipped for today’s business demands. Also, based on the recent IDC and Zerto State of IT Resilience Report, Zerto will be introducing a new benchmarking tool at VMworld. The tool will allow attendees to measure their ‘IT resilience maturity level’ against their peers and map their path to successfully achieve digital transformation.

“Backup cannot be taken for granted in an always-on business world,” said Rob Strechay, SVP of Product at Zerto. “We plan to maximize our time with customers, partners and prospects at VMworld to help them grapple with new and emerging backup needs for the data-driven enterprise, as well as how this integrates into an overall resilient strategy. It is our mission to share the transformative nature of this new approach to backup, data protection and IT resilience. We want to bring to life for our customers just how important it is for every enterprise to minimize data loss and eliminate downtime in order to succeed.”

Zerto will also be speaking with a customer at the event on Tuesday, August 28th from 1:00pm – 2:00pm, full details can be found here.
