Zerto has made Zerto 7.0 available. This adds new possibilities to the IT Resilience Platform, which combines constant data protection with journalism technology. Periodic backups are therefore a thing of the past, according to the company.

According to Zerto, the combination of constant data protection and journaling technology ensures short- and long-term retention. It also provides a constant stream of restore points with intelligence indexing and search capabilities to restore data, files and virtual machines at any time.

In addition, Zerto 7.0 unites backup, disaster recovery and data transfer from and to the cloud within a single platform. This should enable companies to bring efficiency improvements, more powerful performance and proactive transformation to processes that have traditionally taken place in isolation.

Constant protection

Zerto 7.0 comes with data protection workflows that automate recovery procedures across virtual machines for consistent application protection for short- and long-term data retention. There is also built-in support for Purpose Built Backup Appliances, which includes on-premise support for NFS and SMB targets.

Users can customize data retention policies to support daily, weekly, monthly, and annual cycles of copying recovered data to cost-efficient LTR repositories. And a scale-out architecture speeds up the recovery process for applications hosted in Microsoft Azure.

All stored data is automatically encrypted when EC2 instances are restored to protect workloads in Amazon EC2. Finally, there are “robust” planning capabilities and “what if” scenario-based modeling with Zerto Analytics, which constantly monitors and analyzes IT, storage and network resources within on-site environments and in public, private and hybrid clouds.

Resilience Platform

According to the company, Zerto 7.0 should provide a solution to the shortcomings of legacy backup technology. The new version is offered via the Zerto IT Resilience Platform.
