Frequently Asked Questions

What is Disaster Recovery (DR)?

If you want to succeed as a digital business in this environment, there’s little room for downtime. Whether it’s caused by a ransomware attack, natural disaster, human error, or even a planned IT migration, every second of downtime translates to lost revenue.

Offering a disaster recovery solution to your customers is critical in this day and age. Zerto delivers industry leading recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) utilizing continuous data protection (CDP) with unique journal-based technology, replication, and app-centric recovery to mitigate downtime and data loss.

What is Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)?

With Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), an organization replicates its data and IT infrastructure to a third-party cloud computing environment that restores access and functionality after a disaster. This third-party managed service provider (MSP) orchestrates disaster recovery through their own SaaS solution. With DRaaS, organizations can save time, money, and resources by avoiding the additional staff and additional IT infrastructure required to maintain internal disaster recovery capability.

Zerto combines ransomware resilience, disaster recovery, and cloud mobility in a single flexible solution that is the underpinning of over 350 MSP’s DRaaS solutions.

What is the Difference between Disaster Recovery and Backup?

One without the other will result in a failure of both, but they have critical differences.

Backup is a duplication of a data set at a specific point in time. This data backup can be used to restore the data to its original state at the time of the backup. 

Disaster recovery focuses on the duplication of the existing infrastructure with the end goal of resuming normal business operations as quickly as possible.

What is the Difference between Snapshots and Continuous Data Protection?

Traditional backup utilizes snapshots to protect virtual machines. Due to the impact of those snapshots on the production systems, these snapshots are taken only every few hours or even once every 24 hours. This results in restore points that are hours apart, including up to 24 hours of data loss. 

Zerto's continuous block-level replication and journaling technology keep track of every change made to a virtual machine. Checkpoints are created every few seconds and offer point-in-time recovery, enabling granularity of seconds and near-zero data loss.
