Disaster-recovery-as-a-service provider Zerto has announced the general availability of Zerto 7.0 which adds new features to its IT resilience platform to improve the way back-ups are done.

In a statement, the company said the new release would have the following features:

  • A journal that combines the granular journal technology with long-term repositories, providing a continuous stream of recovery points with intelligent index and search – for recovery across data, files or VMs from any point in time;
  • Data protection workflows that automate recovery from numerous points in time, across multiple VMs, ensuring application consistency across short- and long-term data retention;
  • Built-in support for purpose built backup appliances such as Exagrid, with new on-premises support for NFS and SMB targets;
  • Retention policy settings for daily, weekly, monthly and annual cycles to copy recovery data to cost-efficient LTR repositories;
  • Scale-out architecture designed to further accelerate the application recovery process for Microsoft Azure;
  • Automatic encryption at rest upon the recovery of EC2 instances when protecting workloads on Amazon EC2; and
  • Robust resource planning and "what-if" scenario modelling within Zerto Analytics which continuously monitors and analyses compute, storage and network resources across on-premises environments and public, private and hybrid clouds.

“When we previewed Zerto 7.0 at ZertoCON 2018, we were delighted by the enthusiasm of our customers and are very grateful for the support we’ve had in bringing this ground-breaking solution to market,” said Zerto chief executive and co-founder Ziv Kedem.

“Although it has evolved, back-up technology hasn’t gone through any fundamental changes since it became a key part of IT infrastructure.

"With this launch we intend to disrupt the dormant back-up market and address today’s digital business requirements.

"Organisations require their backup and DR providers to innovate ahead of need – playing catch-up is not in anyone’s interest. Our focus on continuous resilience mitigates the risk of disruption shared by every connected business today.”
