Zerto for and on AWS - Migrate or Recover on AWS - Zerto

Unleash Data Protection and Mobility on AWS with Zerto

Realize the full potential of AWS with disaster recovery and migration

Scale Out Disaster Recovery for Amazon EC2

Protect and recover thousands of Amazon EC2 instances with Zerto's automation and orchestration across multiple AWS Regions and Availability Zones.

A Solution for Disaster Recovery, Ransomware Resilience, and Cloud Mobility

The public cloud market is growing exponentially, and with this growth comes the need for technologies that go beyond traditional virtualization, backup, and legacy replication. Cloud adoption can be challenging due to legacy technologies that were never truly designed for the cloud and are overly complex and inefficient. The ability to migrate, manage, protect, and recover data and applications to and within the cloud using purpose-built cloud technologies is key to successful cloud adoption and digital transformation. 

Why Zerto for AWS?

Whether migrating or protecting virtual instances on-premises, to the cloud, or within the cloud, Zerto uses the unlimited capacity of AWS while minimizing downtime and data loss so you can achieve your recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs) with ease.

  • Built on AWS, for AWS – Zerto can recover VMs, on-premise to native Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) Instances
  • Continuous Availability - Fastest RTOs in the industry, dramatically limiting downtime and data loss to ensure a 24-7 experience
  • Simplicity at Scale - Built-in orchestration, automation, and analytics

Zerto for AWS

How Zerto for AWS Works

Zerto’s software-only solution ensures enterprise-class protection and recovery of your VMs and Amazon EC2 workloads that include: 

Easily scalable, cloud-based appliances that manage replication for application-centric protection and recovery or workload migration.

Continuous data protection (CDP) with journal-based replication provides on-premises-to-cloud or cloud-to-cloud migration and recovery. The journal contains all changes to any protected entity over time, and it allows you to use that data to restore to any point in time with seconds of granularity. 

A management server integrates with any hypervisor management platform. Its intuitive interface orchestrates user-initiated operations with simplicity.

CDP combines with extended journal copies retained on immutable S3 storage. 

Cloud-based analytics and reporting that provide management insights and health monitoring for managing RTO and RPO.

Disaster Recovery: On-Premises to AWS

Realize significant cost savings by making AWS a disaster recovery site and only pay for what you use with limitless burst capacity.  

Zerto only creates EC2 instances in AWS during a test, live recovery, or migration, using pre-configured sizing and network settings to simplify your recovery efforts.

Disaster Recovery across Regions for Amazon EC2

Easily protect and recover your Amazon EC2 instances across AWS Regions and Availability Zones (AZs). Scale to protect thousands of instances with cloud-native disaster recovery. 

Zerto provides built-in orchestration and automation with simple workflows for failover and recovery. These features, along with application-centric virtual protection groups (VPGs), simplify the management, protection, and recovery of thousands of EC2 instances across AWS Regions and Availability Zones. 

Zerto In-Cloud for AWS, our cloud management solution, integrates with Amazon CloudWatch. Together, they provide monitoring capabilities that support automated recovery based on specific events, more integration options with third-party management tools, and monitoring for Zerto alongside other cloud applications and tools. 

Zerto In-Cloud is also fully integrated into Zerto Analytics, so deployments can be fully viewed alongside other Zerto solutions across multisite, multi-cloud deployments.  

API-first management with complete REST API is at the forefront of Zerto In-Cloud. As such, Zerto In-Cloud easily integrates with other management systems to simplify overall operations. 

Zerto In-Cloud for AWS is now available on the AWS Marketplace.
