Protects, replicates, and migrates data between vSphere and Hyper-V, and cloud environments including Amazon Web Services.
Zerto has announced the general availability of Zerto Virtual Replication 4.0 (ZVR 4.0). The company's enterprise-class business continuity and disaster recovery software is claimed to be the first to protect, replicate, and migrate data between VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisors, as well as across private, hybrid and public cloud environments including Amazon Web Services. ZVR 4.0 also allows channel partners and cloud service providers to expand their offerings to grow revenues by providing disaster recover as a service (DRaaS) as part of their infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offerings.
By not being tied to a hypervisor or storage vendor, ZVR 4.0 makes moving and protecting workloads across clouds or hypervisors easier for IT managers, while still providing robust protection including short recovery times, simplicity of operation and scalability.
ZVR 4.0 forms the backbone for Zerto's Cloud Continuity Initiative, enabling seamless migration of workloads so enterprises can leverage any on premise or cloud environment.
Zerto Virtual Replication 4.0's new features include:
- Cross-hypervisor replication: reduces disaster recovery and testing/development costs by enabling customers to integrate Microsoft Hyper-V into their VMware-based data centers/centres. Quick migration of workloads to new IT infrastructures improves ROI and easy replication between hypervisors helps avoid vendor lock-in.
- Replicate from private cloud to AWS: ZVR 4.0 reduces IT capital costs and variability with a simple recurring expense, while leveraging AWS for production and on-demand resource access.
- New HTML5 user interface: One consistent and intuitive user interface simplifies workloads and management from any device. Wizard-driven virtual protection group creation ensures consistency in the business continuity and disaster recovery process.
