Cloud data management and data protection company Zerto has unveiled new data protection solutions for Amazon Web Services (AWS) workloads. From backup and disaster recovery (DR) for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Services (Amazon EKS), disaster recovery across AWS Cloud Regions or Availability Zones, and new backup capabilities for AWS focused on cost optimization and security to safeguard companies from malicious intent.
Zerto backup and disaster recovery for Amazon EKS is a new offering that integrates backup and disaster recovery into the application deployment lifecycle for Amazon EKS. Organizations can now easily protect, recover, and move any Kubernetes application and its persistent data for a native, data protection as code experience.
In addition, Zerto now offers disaster recovery across AWS Regions and Availability Zones, at scale. This new Zerto offering is designed to protect large scale native AWS applications for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) data. Today, organizations hit limits when trying to replicate thousands of instances across AWS Regions. This challenge would result in increased Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO).
Zerto’s approach for in-cloud replication will solve this issue by utilizing techniques which may improve volume replication concurrency across cloud regions, utilization of data APIs which reduce reads and writes and optimization of the overall orchestration workflows to allow for low RPOs and RTOs of minutes without the use of agents.
Available now in beta, the Zerto Platform delivers disaster recovery capabilities that are simple to deploy, easy to use, and automates the orchestration of failover and failover testing across AWS Regions and Availability Zones. Customers with production applications running in AWS, such as SAP or Oracle, can now failover between AWS Regions or Availability Zones and be assured that the application is maintained in a consistent manner and recovered as one consistent entity.
Backup Capabilities for AWS
Also announced, Zerto 9.0 introduces new backup capabilities for AWS focused on cost optimization and security that include new cloud tiering into Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) Glacier for cost-effective storage and new immutability for backups to AWS. Immutability safeguards cloud backups from malicious deletion or encryption of data through ransomware.
“The availability of continuous data protection for AWS workloads is an important step for organizations who want to safeguard their data wherever it is used across this market-leading set of cloud services,” said Gil Levonai, CMO and Senior Vice President of product, Zerto. “In doing so, Zerto and AWS customers can build cloud-native solutions and infrastructure, underpinned by a single solution that delivers data protection, recovery, and migration of data to and across AWS.”
