From Concept to Multi-Tenancy in Hours with Zerto on IBM Cloud

Recently, we were having a routine call with one of our partners, a managed services company, based out of the United Kingdom. During the dying minutes of the call, the partner inquisitively inquired about a multi-tenant solution because it would open up another avenue for potential customers. Their current customers are beginning to understand the importance of possessing a disaster recovery plan, but do not want to pay for dedicated infrastructure.

Lightbulbs sparked, and smiles gleaned, as we began explaining Zerto’s multi-tenant capabilities, and how we could leverage IBM Cloud to provide a DRAAS environment for their customers. We extended the call and walked them through the installation that required us to download, Zerto Cloud Manager (ZCM), which is included within Zerto’s license in IBM Cloud. We connected the ZCM to their existing Zerto Virtual Manager – the Zerto Console – within minutes. Once the environments were aligned, we demonstrated how to create Zerto Organizations (ZORGs), where they could begin assigning virtual compute, networking, and storage resources to individual customers.

Two days later, we followed up with the partner to ensure that their environment was running smoothly, and they were skillfully protecting replicated VMs from several customers. They assigned ZORGs with the necessary virtual resources to the individual customers without issue or additional help from the IBM or Zerto team!
