Get Empowered to Truly Leverage Cloud Efficiencies

The public cloud market is growing exponentially, and with this growth comes the need for technologies that work independently of the underlying cloud, virtualization, and storage platforms. Zerto’s platform empowers businesses to truly leverage cloud efficiencies with the flexibility to move to, from, or between clouds such as AWS.

Why Zerto for AWS?

Zerto provides agentless enterprise-class replication utilizing cost-effective and flexible S3 storage for replicated data and recovers workloads as needed into EC2 in an automated manner. 

With Zerto, you’ll realize the full potential of AWS with the ability to migrate and protect application workloads in the public cloud and move those workloads back out as needed.

This flexibility minimizes both cost and risk while supplying limitless capacity and scale on demand. 

Zerto Platform for AWS

How Zerto for AWS Works

Zerto’s software-only platform ensures enterprise-class protection of your environment no matter the size with components that include:

Our scale-out replication appliance, with built-in WAN optimization, encryption, and Quality of Service, replicates every change generated in real time to the target journal and is responsible for copying data to the long-term retention repository.

The journal contains all changes that occurred to any protected entity and allows you to use that data to restore to any point in time with seconds of granularity.

The management server integrates with any hypervisor management platform and has an intuitive interface that orchestrates user-initiated operations with simplicity.

A long-term retention repository allows you to store data for years on cost-effective disk, cloud, or object storage.

In public clouds such as AWS, an all-in-one cloud appliance on EC2 combines management and replication components. It integrates natively, using cost-efficient storage offerings, APIs, and cloud scaling features.

Disaster Recovery: AWS as a Target Site

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

Backup: Amazon S3 as a Long-term Retention Repository

Zerto offers long-term retention (LTR) to S3 storage, along with built-in data reduction and compression, enabling AWS as a scalable, cost-effective LTR target. See the benefits:

Store data securely with encryption in native long-term retention to Amazon S3 Standard, S3 Standard-IA, and S3 One Zone-IA.

Optionally, use AWS Storage Gateway as a local backup cache with asynchronous backup to Amazon S3 for long-term retention.
