Backup and disaster recovery specialist Zerto made a number of new announcements during ZertoCON 2019 for the upcoming version 7.5 of his Zerto IT Resilience Platform. The specialist also came up with new possibilities for the licences.

During the event in Nashville, USA, Zerto announced a number of new features for the still to be released version 7.5 of his platform. For example, the latest version will offer better integration with long-term repositories, including the HPE StoreOnce Catalyst API.

In addition, Zerto 7.5 will soon offer more possibilities for integration with (multi)cloud environments, and in particular those of Microsoft Azure and AWS. Especially when it comes to scale and performance. Part of these extra features include native integration with so-called Azure scale sets. In addition, the arrival of a Resource Planner to determine the size of the backup data for Azure, AWS and for on-premise environments has also been announced for Zerto Analytics.

Further integration with VMware

Zerto also announces that it will continue the links between its own platform and various VMware solutions. For example, the integration of the certification of its vSphere Installation Bundle (VIB) for VMwares vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO) framework has now been completed.

This integration enables support for Secure Boot for VMware vSphere hosts, among other things. In addition, end-users can create Zerto replication policies within VMwares Storage Policies in this way.

All technology updates will be rolled out in the second half of this year, so indicates the backup and disaster recovery specialist.

Update on license model

In addition to the technological improvements to its platform, the company has also announced a number of new features for its licensing model. End users can now purchase Zerto as a perpetual or temporary license.

By doing so, the supplier wants to give its customers more flexibility to determine what works best for them. Especially when it comes to functionality, efficiency, agility and their business considerations and no longer based on cost.
