MICROSOFT IGNITE – ORLANDO, FLA. – November 4, 2019 – /BackupReview.info/ — Zerto, an industry leader for IT resilience, today introduces an even more expansive, rigorous and innovative data protection platform utilizing Microsoft Azure. Zerto 7.5 now incorporates Azure Managed Disks, native scale-out, mobility between regions and managed service identities. These functionalities expand Zerto’s offerings to a new set of critical use cases—helping customers seamlessly move to Azure for multi-cloud, disaster recovery and migration projects.

The new capabilities include:

  • Azure Managed Disks: Zerto integration supports failback from Azure Managed Disks both to and from the cloud (Premium SSD, Standard SSD and Standard HDD), with short SLAs and high performance for workloads migrated to Azure or for disaster recovery/IT resilience strategy.
  • Azure Cloud Native Scale-Out: Zerto’s integration supports ongoing replication as well as recovery workflows, enabling increased Recovery Time Objective (RTO) performance, recoverability and simpler management for enterprise workloads at scale with Azure scale sets.
  • Azure Cloud Mobility Between Regions: Migrating from Zone to Zone or ‘lift and shift’ from one region to another can be achieved with ease and simplicity when via Zerto’s 7.5 integration with Microsoft Azure.
  • Azure Managed Service Identities: Zerto and Microsoft Azure users can now authenticate to Azure services and keep their credentials secure via the Microsoft Managed Service Identity.

Microsoft recently announced the public preview of incremental snapshots of Azure Managed Disks that Zerto leverages for the new failback functionality. This extended platform capability is available for customers on Azure in the Western Central US and Northern Europe. According to Microsoft’s website, “Incremental snapshots provide a unique capability available only in Azure Managed Disks enabling backup and disaster recovery solutions. It allows you to get the changes between two snapshots of the same disk, thus copying only data that has changed between two snapshots, reducing time and cost for backup and disaster recovery.”

“With the release of incremental snapshots of Azure Managed Disks, Microsoft again sets the bar for cloud performance and features. And Microsoft makes it possible for partners to innovate during the development process and therefore customers are able to realize the benefits of these advancements expediently. Microsoft understands that working closely with ISV partners is the best way to deliver innovation and requested features to customers quickly,” said Peter Kerr, VP Strategic Alliance, Zerto.

“Through Zerto, we’ve been able to replace multiple legacy backup solutions, including SRM and RecoverPoint,” said Jeffrey Frankel, senior disaster recovery services engineer at McKesson. “The integration and utilization of a streamlined application has not only reduced our setup time from days to less than an hour, but it has also reduced our system recovery time by more than 90%. Additionally, Zerto’s partnership has helped facilitate rapid adoption of a hybrid, multi-cloud strategy, implementing comprehensive cloud-based DR through Microsoft Azure.”

“Zerto continues to drive innovation on Microsoft Azure by building advanced failback capability for Azure Managed Disks leveraging the new incremental snapshot functionality.  Customers are now able to expand their usage to Premium SSD, Standard SSD and Standard HDD Disks, and experience the industry leading disaster recovery and cloud migration solution with lowered costs,” said Aung Oo, Head of Product, Azure Disks & Files, Microsoft.

Zerto will be exhibiting at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, Florida, November 4-7 at booth #1041. Zerto’s booth activities will include demos of Zerto 7.5 highlighting its tight integration with Microsoft Azure, including Azure managed disks and scale-sets.

Additionally, Zerto Technology Evangelist Steve Blow will deliver a theatre presentation entitled ‘On-premises to Azure in Three Steps’ which will take place on Tuesday, November 5th – 12:05 – 12:25 p.m. ET in Theater D. The session code is THR222.

Zerto will also hold their annual ‘Zerto Cigar & Whiskey Event’ on Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. ET at Blue Martini – Pointe Orlando.
