IBM Think News: Zerto Partnership Provides Data Protection for IBM’s Resiliency Orchestration DRaaS Solution

In an announcement at IBM Think 2018, IT Resilience software provider Zerto said it is partnering with IBM Services to provide IBM Resiliency Orchestration DRaaS Solution customers fast, simple virtual infrastructure recovery.

IBM's Resiliency Orchestration DRaaS Solution allows enterprise customers to recover their virtual and physical workloads, whether running on an IBM mainframe, IBM Power AIX, IBM System I, SUN Solaris or HP-UX system, and to ensure coordinated application recovery throughout. The offering automates the workflow of disaster recovery for a customer's complete heterogeneous environment to provide a more predictable, simplified and always-on operation that leads to reduced risk, cost, testing and recovery time.

"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," said Daniel Witteveen, Vice President of Global Portfolio at IBM Resiliency Services. "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."

IBM Resiliency Orchestration is for disaster recovery and cyber resiliency, and is available on customer premises, IBM Cloud and IBM resiliency data centers. It is available as both software and a managed service. The offering has the capability to include Zerto's replication technology, the complete VMware stack and the end-to-end IBM managed services using IBM's Resiliency Orchestration tool, all in a single dashboard.

"With the help of Zerto's replication technology, IBM customers can quickly recover their virtualized workloads regardless of the underlying technologies," said Mehran Hadipour, Director of Global Business Development at Zerto. "The combined solution helps solve many IT resilience challenges that enterprise organizations face when working with legacy applications that take advantage of virtual and physical infrastructure."
