The Future of Backup
The Future of Backup
Zerto 7 will change the way backup is done with continuous journal-based protection to address the demands of today’s digital customers who expect no downtime, no data loss and no interruptions.
Ransomware attacks continue to increase and data and application availability are becoming more critical to business success. As a result, companies need to re-evaluate how they use backup technology. Agent-based, periodic backups put the business at risk of data loss, corruption and availability. What companies require now is continuous journal-based recovery that provides granular recovery to within seconds of disruption or that can go back months or multiple years as needed. Continuous backup is replacing periodic to deliver short and long-term retention in a single solution.
The Zerto IT Resilience Platform is the industry first offering to converge backup, disaster recovery and cloud mobility solutions into a single, simple, scalable platform. By moving from periodical-based backup processes to a continuous process backup can better meet today’s 24/7 demands of no data loss or downtime. Zerto 7 will use its core Continuous Data Protection (CDP) and journaling technology to deliver seconds of RPO at scale, from seconds to years.
Zerto 7 is the first version realizing the vision to converge all backup use cases for short term and long-term in one platform. Zerto 7 will add new capabilities to its platform to fundamentally change the way backups are done, eliminating the need for periodic-based backups which are slow and error prone. The platform will deliver faster, easier and more granular backup capability than any other offering in the market.
The following new capabilities will be added:
The Elastic Journal, a new concept in data protection, merging granular technology with long term repositories allowing for a continuous stream of recovery points with search and recovery across data, files or VMs from any point in time from 7 seconds to 7 years. This is critical for continuous availability.
With continuous journal-based protection users can search for a file or a workload and get all the points in time available to recover from, regardless if these are in a short or long-term repository, on-premises or in the cloud. Continuous Data Protection (CDP) delivers seconds of RPO for short-term needs, like user errors, ransomware or disasters, but also enables users to retrieve the same file or database VM from 6 months ago for compliance use cases. All these features are accessible from one user interface and one data protection workflow with built in automation and orchestration.
The new Elastic Journal will combine the power of the existing Zerto Journal, which allows fast recovery and offers granularity in seconds, with the demands for long-term retention – balancing storage needs, locations and policies. The user sets policies for how long the Elastic Journal should save data, as well as other settings that determine how much data will be stored, in which frequency, and where.
Zerto 7 will also introduce incremental, synthetic and full copies to increase efficiency and reduce storage needs, enhancements to its scale out architecture and new on-premises and cloud repository targets.
Zerto 7 will continue to simplify the user experience and will enhance its Analytics to include prescriptive capabilities.
