Zerto opened its first virtual user conference, ZertoCON 2020, by unveiling its plans to extend its IT Resilience Platform™ to support next generation, cloud native applications. This news reinforces Zerto’s leadership in the data protection and disaster recovery market by providing disaster recovery, data protection, and mobility in a single, simple, scalable platform for on-premises, cloud, and now next-gen applications. As a first step, Zerto for Kubernetes was announced for the initial release, which will be platform-agnostic and enable protecting applications across Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Red Hat OpenShift, and VMware Tanzu.
“Our IT Resilience Platform has fundamentally changed the way companies protect and backup data across their organizations. With the clear shift towards containers based application development in the market, we are looking to extend our platform to offer these applications the same level of resilience we have delivered to VM based applications,” said Gil Levonai, CMO and senior vice president of product, Zerto. “Today at our first virtual ZertoCON, we are announcing our vision and plan for resilience in next generation applications. While next-gen applications are built with a lot of internal availability and resilience concepts, they still require an easy and simple way to recover from human error or malicious attacks, or to be mobilized and recovered quickly without interruption. This is where Zerto can help.”
“Zerto is focusing on resilience for next-gen applications with its continuous data protection and journaling technology,” said Christophe Bertrand, senior analyst, ESG. “With Kubernetes becoming the critical technology in container orchestration for managing production applications, the availability of Zerto for Kubernetes is very timely and needed by many organizations. It will enable enterprises to efficiently protect, recover, and also move applications and their persistent data for Intelligent Data Management use cases such as accelerated development and delivery within DevOps workflows.”
Resilience for Next-Gen Applications
Building on its expertise with continuous data protection, Zerto will add new capabilities to its IT Resilience Platform to disrupt the way that backup and disaster recovery is done for next generation applications. Zerto for Kubernetes will include:
