Zerto Platform on AWS - Migrate or Recover on AWS - Zerto

Unleash data protection and mobility on AWS with Zerto

Realize the full potential of AWS with migration, disaster recovery, backup, and long-term retention

NEW: Scale out Disaster Recovery for Amazon EC2

Protect and recover 100’s to 1000’s of Amazon EC2 instances with Zerto automation and orchestration.

A Solution for Cloud Data Management and Data Protection

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. Being able to migrate, manage, protect, and recover data and applications to and in the cloud using purpose-built cloud technologies is the key to successful cloud adoption and digital transformation.

Why Zerto for AWS?

Whether migrating or protecting virtual machines or containers on premises, to the cloud, or within the cloud, the Zerto solution allows the flexibility to use the unlimited capacity of AWS while minimizing downtime and data loss so you can achieve your recovery point objective and recovery time objective with ease.

  • One Solution, Any Workload – Protecting VMs, EC2 Instances, and Kubernetes on EKS
  • Continuous Availability – Fastest RTOs dramatically limit downtime and data loss to ensure 24×7 experience
  • Simplicity at Scale – Built-in orchestration, automation, and analytics

How Zerto for AWS Works

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

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

Continuous data protection with journal-based replication for on-premises to cloud or cloud to cloud that 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.

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

A long-term retention repository combined with continuous backup technology that allows you to store data for years on cost-effective disk and immutable S3 storage.

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

Disaster Recovery: Amazon EC2 to Amazon EC2

Easily protect and recover your Amazon EC2 instances across regions, zones, or accounts scaling to protect 1000+ of VM’s with cloud-native disaster recovery.

Built-in orchestration and automation with simple workflows for failover and recovery, along with application-centric virtual protection groups simplifies the management, protection, and recovery of large enterprise applications like SAP.

CloudWatch integration for Zerto In-Cloud increases monitoring capabilities that support automation of recovery based on specific events, more integration options with third-party management tools, and monitoring Zerto alongside other cloud applications and tools.

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

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

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, and immutable LTR target.

  • Store data securely with encryption in native long-term retention to Amazon S3 Standard, S3 Standard-IA, and S3 One Zone-IA.
  • Immutability to protect against ransomware and other malicious intent.
  • Automatic tiering to Amazon S3 infrequent access and Amazon S3 Glacier for better and cost-effective cloud archiving.
  • Optionally, use AWS Storage Gateway as a local backup cache with asynchronous backup to Amazon S3 for long-term retention.
