In a statement, the company said the Zerto IT Resilience Platform would be made available to IBM customers through IBM’s Resiliency Orchestration DRaaS solution for simplified, rapid recovery of virtual infrastructure.
The IBM product mentioned aids organisations in recovering all virtual and physical workloads, whether running on an IBM mainframe, IBM Power AIX, IBM System I, SUN Solaris or HP-UX system, and claims to ensure co-ordinated application recovery throughout.
The combined products are claimed to:
- Simplify disaster recovery operations;
- Ensure disaster recovery readiness on-premise and/or across multiple clouds;
- Reduce complexity and risk;
- Save time with smarter automation;
- Improve reporting and BCDR testing across systems; and
- Enable a lifecycle approach to recovery.
"Zerto’s continuous replication technology is aimed at helping IBM customers quickly recover their virtualised workloads, regardless of the underlying technologies.
"This combined solution helps solve many IT resilience challenges that enterprise organisations face when working with legacy applications that take advantage of virtual and physical infrastructure."
Daniel Witteveen, vice-president, Global Portfolio, IBM Resiliency Services, said: "“Simplicity across the hybrid IT landscape is a crucial component of the IBM Resiliency Orchestration solution, and it is well-known for its ease of use and viability in a client’s recovery posture.
"Many of our enterprise clients are looking for a provider to manage their complete DR environment, which often includes multiple clouds and underlying technologies like mainframes or other physical devices.
"By partnering with Zerto, we’re able to use best-of-breed continuous availability to give our customers exactly what they’re looking for in a simple and seamless model.”
