Move Over Backup, Zerto Changes the Game…Again: Zerto 7.0 Revolutionizes the Data Protection Market by Converging Backup and Disaster Recovery into Better-Than-Backup Technology

Sponsored by Businesswire

an industry leader for IT resilience, today announced the general
availability of Zerto 7.0, adding new capabilities to its IT
Resilience Platform
™ that revolutionize the way backup is done.
Designed for an era of application complexity and cloud adoption, where
legacy backup doesn’t meet the needs of today’s businesses, Zerto 7.0
replaces periodic backup with continuous data protection combined with
powerful journaling technology for both short-term and long-term data
retention. This release converges disaster recovery, backup and cloud
mobility into a single platform that allows organizations to combine
historically siloed processes to drive efficiencies, performance and
proactive IT transformation.

“When we previewed Zerto 7.0 at ZertoCON 2018, we were delighted by the
enthusiasm of our customers and are very grateful for the support we’ve
had in bringing this ground-breaking solution to market,” commented Ziv
Kedem, CEO and co-founder, Zerto. “Although it has evolved, backup
technology hasn’t gone through any fundamental changes since it became a
key part of IT infrastructure. With this launch we intend to disrupt the
dormant backup market and address today’s digital business requirements.
Organizations require their backup and DR providers to innovate ahead of
need – playing catch-up is not in anyone’s interest. Our focus on
continuous resilience mitigates the risk of disruption shared by every
connected business today.”

Zerto 7.0 offers a range of new, innovative features and capabilities to
reinvent disaster recovery and backup, including:

  • A unique Elastic Journal that combines the granular journal technology
    with long-term repositories, providing a continuous stream of recovery
    points with intelligent index and search – for recovery across data,
    files or VMs from any point in time
  • Data protection workflows that automate recovery from numerous points
    in time, across multiple VMs, ensuring application consistency across
    short- and long-term data retention
  • Built-in support for Purpose Built Backup Appliance (PBBA) such as
    Exagrid, with new on-premises support for NFS and SMB targets
  • Retention policy settings for daily, weekly, monthly and annual cycles
    to copy the recovery data to cost-efficient LTR repositories
  • Scale-out architecture designed to further accelerate the application
    recovery process for Microsoft Azure
  • Automatic encryption at rest upon the recovery of EC2 instances when
    protecting workloads on Amazon EC2
  • Robust resource planning and ‘what-if’ scenario modeling within Zerto
    Analytics which continuously monitors and analyses compute, storage
    and network resources across on-premises environments and public,
    private and hybrid clouds

The traditional backup products and tools that are still being used do
not meet the speed, performance, availability or data retention
expectations dictated by businesses today. Zerto’s vision for backup is
realized by the launch of Zerto 7.0 to overcome the failings of legacy
technology. Delivered via the Zerto IT Resilience Platform, users
benefit from continuous data protection and unique journaling
technology, redefining the way they protect and recover data and
applications in the ‘always-on’ economy.

“The ability to manage our DR and backup through a single platform with
Zerto 7.0 will be a game-changer for us,” said Michael Sallie, Senior
Systems Engineer, Yanfeng Automotive Interiors. “DR and backup are both
time-intensive and redundant tasks for our IT team. With the convergence
of the two, we’ll see much less of our team’s time spent managing them
separately, freeing them up to work on other important IT needs. We also
anticipate significant efficiency increases through the ability to
replicate once for both DR and backup, not only saving time but saving

“We know how closely Zerto listens to partners and customers alike –
it’s an approach that ensures together we can provide the right
solutions to customers at the right time. Working together, Zerto now
seamlessly supports ExaGrid as a PBBA which enhances the backup
capabilities we can provide to our customers,” commented Bill Andrews,
CEO and President of ExaGrid. “The time is right for this technology –
businesses are demanding new levels of resilience from their data
protection and backup solutions, and Zerto 7 delivers the capabilities
and performance they are looking for in an era of ever-increasing
emphasis around always on business and digital transformation.”
