Zerto has announced the availability of Zerto 7.5, delivering deeper integrations with partners, new security and cloud capabilities and advanced analytics, helping customers navigate their cloud journey and alleviate security risks.
New features include expanded functionality with Microsoft Azure, including support for Azure Managed Disks, scale-sets and Azure VMware Solution (AVS); integrations with HPE StoreOnce Catalyst; certification and support for VMware vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO); and advanced analytics for reporting, planning and customisation of disaster recovery and long-term data retention.
With security as a top-of-mind priority for most organisations, Zerto 7.5 delivers security enhancements for VMWare and public cloud deployments, including:
- Support for secure boot and SPBM: Zerto joined the vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO) program that enables support for secure boot and storage-policy based management (SPBM), delivering data protection for highly secure environments
- Support for Azure Active Directory Managed Service Identity (MSI)
- Support for AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM).
7.5 brings together many new features of the Zerto Analytics Resource Planner, a new IT resilience tool that provides real-time and historical insights and analysis of the protection status of applications and data. With 7.5, the following new views, controls, filters and updates are added to Zerto Analytics:
- Journal sizing for storage capacity: This new capability in Resource Planner helps a user quickly understand and trade off storage capacity requirements with the amount of time data is protected;
- Throughput Graphs: Within the Resource Planner, users can now view the throughput for the selected group of VMs over time to identify the I/O trends and properly size their recovery site;
- Cloud Service Provider (CSP) control of storage and networking usage: CSPs and enterprises can monitor storage and network usage by individual users. Providers can now see total storage consumption and network usage from site to site or total outbound from a site.
