Zerto Named a Gartner "Cool Vendor" For Business Continuity Management and IT Disaster Recovery Management

Zerto, developer of the standard solution for disaster recovery in virtualized and cloud environments, today announced it was named to the April 24, 2014, list of “Cool Vendors in Business Continuity Management and IT Disaster Recovery Management, 2014” in a report by Gartner, Inc., a leading information technology research and advisory company.

“It is an honor for Zerto to be included in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner,” said Ziv Kedem, Co-founder and CEO of Zerto, Inc. “We believe having Zerto Virtual Replication, the industry’s first hypervisor-based replication solution, recognized in a Gartner Cool Vendor report, validates its position as the emerging standard for business continuity and disaster recovery in virtual and cloud environments.”

Each year, Gartner evaluates Cool Vendors who are innovative, impactful and intriguing. This report analyzed Cool Vendors in Business Continuity Management and IT Disaster Recovery management who were moving from traditional IT disaster recovery to IT service continuity management shifting the focus from recovery to resilience. They used technologies such as recovery as a service, cloud management platform, data replication for virtual machines and recovery assurance tools to assist in the transition. The five new companies in this year's Cool Vendors for BCM, including Zerto, provide all this capability in order to help organizations move from recovery to resilience.

Founded in 2009, Zerto offers virtualized workload mobility, disaster recovery and data protection solutions. Its flagship product, Zerto Virtual Replication, has been deployed by hundreds of enterprises and Cloud Service Providers globally. Zerto’s software brings automated disaster recovery to all virtualized workloads at the Virtual Machine (VM) level and offers 100 percent assurance that all production workloads can be mobilized, protected and consistently recovered.

In the last year, Zerto reported significant growth following its announcement of Zerto Virtual Replication 3.1, which enables cloud service providers to offer disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) to their customers. The new management capabilities introduced combined with enterprise-class replication capabilities, provide a clear competitive advantage. Other testaments to Zerto’s growth in the industry include:

  • Selected as a leading technology partner to support Cisco InterCloud
  • Celebrated 200 percent revenue growth while quadrupling its customer base

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud.

Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
