Zerto, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, has announced the availability of Zerto In-Cloud for Amazon Web Services (AWS), a new cloud-native, software offering of the Zerto platform that delivers disaster recovery for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), scaling to protect 1,000+ instances across regions, availability zones, and accounts.
Zerto In-Cloud for AWS ‘brings reliability and speed to the protection of enterprise AWS applications with simple automated workflows for failover, recovery, and testing’.
Organizations that run workloads in Amazon EC2 instances need to protect them with a simple and scalable disaster recovery solution, says Zerto. The challenge with available solutions is ‘that they are either agent-based, require heavy manual configuration and management, are limited in regional coverage, or do not easily integrate with automation tools. As such, these solutions do not allow for protection and recovery at scale or speed’.
To address these challenges, Zerto is now expanding its DR capabilities to Amazon EC2 instances that need protection across AWS regions and availability zones. Zerto’s innovative approach for in-cloud replication solves the scaling issue with orchestration and automation without requiring agents. Zerto In-Cloud for AWS improves volume replication efficiency at scale across regions and zones, and optimises orchestration workflows to achieve minimal data loss and rapid recovery to achieve your recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO).
Zerto’s breadth of capabilities includes migration, disaster recovery, and backup to AWS as well as protection of Amazon EC2 workloads to on-premises environments. The Zerto In-Cloud for AWS offering complements these capabilities by introducing a resilient, highly scalable, cloud-native architecture for in-cloud disaster recovery. API-centric management allows Zerto In-Cloud for AWS to be easily integrated into a user’s automation solution of choice to streamline workload protection as part of an overall data management strategy. Zerto provides one platform and one experience for disaster recovery, backup, and mobility to, from, and between AWS workloads, whether that’s for VMs or containers.
