Zerto has announced the general availability of Zerto 6.5, a significant update of the Zerto IT Resilience Platform. This release further accelerates cloud adoption, lays a foundation for backup capabilities within the platform and provides deeper analytics insight across all clouds. These enhancements are tightly integrated with the growing Microsoft Azure storage solution portfolio. This provides data protection at scale, simplified enterprise application mobility and fast migration.
Zerto 6.5 will take advantage of newly announced Microsoft Azure Data Box Edge to deliver a fast, scalable hybrid cloud solution for its on-premises backup capabilities. Zerto 6.5 integrates with Data Box Edge using standard storage protocols. The combined solution will enable fast local storage access and unlimited storage offload to Azure.
“Recent research conducted by IDC and Zerto found that 90 percent of respondents plan to use the cloud for data protection within the next 12 months. Almost half of these same respondents are also looking to modernize their backup solution in that same timeframe,” said Ziv Kedem, CEO, Zerto. “This tells us that their legacy backup solutions are not equipped to meet the business and IT resilience needs of organizations who are in the midst of a digital transformation journey and looking to fully embrace the cloud. Zerto 6.5 will enable enterprises to simplify IT with one platform to replace backup, disaster recovery and cloud mobility solutions.
