Zerto for VMware - Overview

Deeply Integrated with VMware for Unrivaled Performance 

Zerto has a strategic alliance with VMware that unlocks the full potential of VMware tools. With deep integration, this combination provides:

  • Support for vSphere Virtual Volumes (vVols), so you can achieve storage savings, increased visibility, and additional workload control.
  • The most interoperable experience possible with VMware Cloud Director integration, including tenant self-service capabilities, such as disaster recovery and data protection operations for managed service providers (MSPs).
  • Support for all VMware features used in daily management, such as vMotion, Storage vMotion, DRS, Storage DRS, and more.

Support for VMware on Public Cloud 

Seamlessly and easily migrate VMware workloads to VMware on public cloud without changing your applications to quickly take disaster recovery to the cloud. Public cloud support enables you to:

  • Protect and recover an entire VMware-based datacenter with no modifications to the VMs or management tools.
  • Replicate from an on-premises environment to VMware on public cloud or from within a VMware on public cloud for intra-cloud DR.
  • Replicate, test, then migrate VMware-based application groups to VMware on public cloud without retraining VMware experts.

Backup and Recovery for VMware 

Combining Zerto with HPE GreenLake for Backup and Recovery enables you to consistently protect on-premises VMware® VMs with software as a service (SaaS). With SaaS, you can:

  • Easily protect your VMs with the flexibility to deliver instant restores via snapshots and rapid recovery—as well as leverage cost-effective, long-term retention in the cloud.
  • Enjoy elastic scale and robust protection without the hassle of managing and operating backup hardware, software, and cloud infrastructure.
  • Harness unified management, unprecedented flexibility, and predictable consumption-based billing that aligns costs to business value.  
  • Protect against ransomware threats with inaccessible encrypted backups. Data immutability with dual authorization prevents any malware encryption, modification, or deletion of backup data.

Because Zerto supports vSphere vVols, you can take advantage of finer VM-level control, streamlined storage operations, and greater flexibility.

Rewind and Resume with Journal-Based Recovery

Zerto’s journaling technology constantly logs all the changes users make to applications and data. Because changes are continuously written to the journal, it enables recovery to any point-in-time.
