Zerto’s Vision for Next-Gen Applications

Zerto’s vision is to extend our enterprise-class VM and cloud platform to next generation applications. Next-gen, cloud-native applications typically include containerized, serverless, PaaS, or SaaS technologies.

As more enterprises move to a DevOps model, the reliance on microservices—typically running in containers—becomes a starting point. Zerto is focusing on continuous data protection for containerized applications with our industry-leading journaling technology.

With Kubernetes as the de facto container orchestration technology, Zerto’s first release will be for Kubernetes, whether running on-premises or in the cloud.

Zerto Sets Its Sights on Kubernetes-based Stateful Apps

The proven Zerto platform is expanding to containerized environments with Zerto for Kubernetes(Z4K). Trusted analysts at 451 Research explain how Z4K supports stateful container applications with an intuitive platform and industry-leading disaster recovery.

“Our platform has fundamentally changed the way companies protect and backup data across their organizations. With the clear shift towards containerized application development in the market, we are looking to extend our platform to offer these applications the same level of resilience we have delivered to VM-based applications”

Gil Levonai, CMO and SVP Product, Zerto

Zerto for Kubernetes: Data Protection as Code

The blistering pace at which businesses are adopting cloud-native architectures means new information is always coming to light.

Zerto for Kubernetes introduces a new approach for next-gen application resilience with:

Next-Gen Application Resilience Components

Data Protection as Code

Purpose-built for Kubernetes, Zerto integrates both backup and disaster recovery into the application deployment lifecycle from day one while enabling rapid development

Continuous Replication

Always-on replication provides continuous protection for automated, non-disruptive recovery of persistent volumes within and between clusters, datacenters, or clouds.

Hybrid and Multi-Cloud

Native support for your Kubernetes environments, no matter where they’re running: on-premises or in the cloud, use Zerto to protect to, from, and between the platform of your choice with deep analytics across every multi-site and multi-cloud deployment.

Application Consistency

Protect, move, and recover complex applications as one consistent entity, including all associated Kubernetes objects and metadata, such as ConfigMaps, StatefulSets, Services, and Deployments.

Granular Restore

Unique journal provides tens of thousands of restore points to overcome the challenges of synchronous replication while providing more granularity than traditional, snapshot-based backup


Zerto for Kubernetes is container-based, seamlessly integrates with your existing stack, and eliminates vendor lock-in by avoiding dependencies on any one storage provider or platform.


Integrated workflows simplify recovery and mobility. Easy management with powerful kubectl plug-in YAML-based config, native Kubernetes tooling, and simple APIs to reduce the initial learning curve and ongoing administrative complexity.

One Platform

Single, simple, scalable Platform for disaster recovery, data protection, and cloud mobility.
