Can your business recover from a disaster?

Disaster recovery has traditionally been considered a technology safeguard without a clear return on investment (ROI). But the business benefits of cloud computing are now driving the adoption of disaster recovery (DR) solutions.

Today’s disasters come in many varieties, from naturally occurring events (such as hurricanes, earthquakes and floods) to man-made threats, like employee sabotage, hacking and data theft.

Downtime is expensive. The impact of a single disaster is a risk that needs to be averted — and one that can be mitigated through proper oversight and the right technological approach.

Zerto Disaster Recovery on IBM Cloud

Zerto Virtual Replication — deployed through IBM Cloud and integrated with IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions including Cloud Foundation™ and vCenter Server — installs seamlessly into the VMware vSphere® environment and is deployed in an automated fashion. Virtual workloads are protected in any IBM Cloud data center and across any distance, through the IBM Cloud private network.

Zerto Virtual Replication can recover cloud applications with minimal data loss and RPOs measured in seconds and RTOs in minutes. The Zerto Virtual Protection Group (VPG) is the unit of replication, which is a group of virtual machines that make up a multi-VM application.
