The new release is built upon hypervisor-based replication technology
Disaster recovery and business continuity applications provider Zerto has introduced a Virtual Replication (ZVR) 2.0, a new disaster recovery application developed to protect tier-one applications in virtualised data centres and cloud environments.
The new release includes several enhanced features, including enhanced scalability, management and automation as well as the ability to replicate to and from multiple data centres.
Zerto CEO and co-founder Ziv Kedem said, "The launch of Zerto Virtual Replication 2.0 into the marketplace has the power to change the way replication is conducted in the enterprise."
Release 2.0 is built upon hypervisor-based replication technology and is integrated with VMware vCloud Director to enable centralised management, automated failover and testing in the vCloud. It will work in private, public and hybrid cloud environments.
The new release enables the protection of data and applications in the main data centre and also at branch offices. Workloads can be replicated from any site to any other site and automatically recovered within minutes.
Zerto Virtual Replication 2.0 will enable companies to create a copy of VMs on the replication site for testing, backup or development, with no impact on the production environment.
Additionally, the ZVR journal can now store up to five days of data, providing more options for failover, in the case of data corruption.
The new release features automated updates of VMware vApp changes and support for VM boot order, ensuring recovery of complex applications. It also includes cloud management reports and infrastructure masking.
Zerto Virtual Replication 2.0 is available to both new and existing Zerto enterprise customers, many of whom are already in the process of implementing 2.0 features into their data centres.
