VMworld 2013: 20 Must-See Storage Offerings (Part 1)


Boston-based Zerto touted its new Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) 3.0 as the industry's first disaster recovery solution built to easily integrate into public, private and hybrid clouds. ZVR 3.0 provides enterprise-class RPO (recovery point objective) and RTO (recovery time objective), along with new functionality for effective disaster recovery, data protection and workload migration.

Zerto called ZVR 3.0 a "software-defined disaster recovery" offering because it is based in the hypervisor, which decouples disaster recovery from the storage hardware.

For cloud service providers, ZVR 3.0 includes the Zerto Self-Service Portal (ZSSP), which integrates into an existing cloud portal to accelerate time to market for disaster recovery services, and Zerto Cloud Manager (ZCM), which provides a single view of a customer's data, even if they are leveraging physical resources across several locations.

ZVR 3.0 also provides enterprise disaster recovery capabilities.
