Jayme Williams, Senior Systems Engineer at TenCate is protecting eight environments across the US and Canada – and each site has different storage. All sites require disaster recovery and backup across the application set. Having one solution would be ideal, but not possible – until they came across Zerto.
Zerto Virtual Replication is storage agnostic and made it easy to integrate a new site into their disaster recovery plan. Their original business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) plan, affectionately named the “Hit by the bus” book due to its volume, has been greatly simplified and the service levels they are seeing are outstanding – single digit seconds for their recovery point objectives (RPO).
Finally, they are incorporating public cloud into their IT plans by backing up their applications from their DR site to AWS. With one solution, they can achieve their BC/DR and backup SLA, while reducing costs and introducing public cloud into their IT strategy at a pace that supports changing business requirements.
With Zerto Virtual Replication:
•Manage all sites in one pane of glass with one tool for replication and automation of failover, failback and testing processes as well as backup
•Increase efficiencies with the ability to track and manage consumption across the hybrid cloud
•Hardware agnostic solution does not require a change in the infrastructure reducing costs
•Consistency in the BC/DR solution dramatically reduces operational costs
•Replicates between different types of storage and versions of VMware vSphere making it easy to add new sites to the process
•Point-in-time recovery enables failover to a previous point to recover from any issue – logical corruption, datacenter outage, etc.
•Leveraging a public cloud strategy with backups stored in Amazon
