Zerto, a US-based company that offers disaster recovery, backup, and workload mobility software for virtualized infrastructures and cloud environments, has made three announcements at ZertoCon 2021: Zerto Backup for SaaS; support for Kubernetes; and expanded AWS backup services. The disaster specialist also stated that it would release new software named Zerto 9.0.
The all-new Zerto Backup for SaaS (ZBaaS) runs on a private infrastructure that delivers data immutability, compliance, and guaranteed data availability. The Zerto Backup SaaS service uses Copenhagen-based Keepit to support Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Salesforce, and Google Workspace. It features granular recovery, data availability outside the standard production data center, and an independent secure data backup stored at a different location for added ransomware protection.
Zerto for Kubernetes (Z4K) takes Zerto's continuous data protection technology to Kubernetes-orchestrated containers, providing backup and disaster recovery for on-premises and public cloud workloads. Whereas, Zerto 9.0, the next major software release, will add disaster recovery across AWS Regions or Availability Zones; backup to S3-compatible storage such as Cloudian HyperStore; cloud tiering for AWS and Azure; and immutability in the public cloud. Zerto 9.0 is available in the beta test and is generally available in July 2021.
