Virtualization of the data center has proven to be a true IT game-changer, providing increased flexibility and control in managing mission-critical data assets, as well as essential cost savings. Organizations large and small continue to move forward with virtualization initiatives, either going completely virtual or operating – in varying ratios – in a hybrid physical/virtual environment.

To more fully realize the benefits of virtualization and get the most out of their investments in the technology, organizations need to optimize all IT processes and activities for their virtual environment. This includes security, compliance, and Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery (BC/DR).

Until Zerto introduced hypervisor-based replication for VMware, of the three processes mentioned, BC/DR was the only area that had no virtual-ready methods that organizations could adopt.


Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) is the only out-of-the-box solution that delivers a complete Disaster Recovery Service Management Platform. Centrally managed in one interface, it provides all the technical capabilities including aggressive service levels, and a robust replication solution. Streamline business requirements with centralized management and automated usage reporting.
