Migrate or Recover on AWS with Zerto

The public cloud market is growing exponentially and with this growth comes the need for technologies that work independently of the underlying cloud, virtualization, and storage platforms. Zerto’s IT Resilience PlatformTM empowers businesses to truly leverage cloud’s efficiencies with the flexibility to move from, to, or between clouds, such as AWS.

Zerto’s industry-leading IT Resilience Platform™ is the premiere, single solution for protection, recovery, backup, and migration of data in the public cloud.



Why Zerto for AWS?

By combining the Zerto IT Resilience Platform™ and Amazon Web Services (AWS), businesses achieve IT resilience, by simplifying data protection and disaster recovery, while enabling fast and flexible workload migration to and from AWS sites. AWS can also be used as a cloud-based disaster recovery site, eliminating the capital costs associated with owning and operating your datacenter.


How Zerto for AWS Works ?

IT teams increasingly rely on the public cloud to deliver the cost efficiency and scale their business requires. Zerto gives you the freedom to choose a backup and recovery option that fits your needs. Having your own disaster recovery or backup target site on standby in the cloud, without having to manage the hardware, power, or cooling, makes AWS the perfect solution for cloud-based data protection.

With enterprise-class continuous data protection (CDP) and orchestrated failback, Zerto allows you to migrate and recover entire multi-VM applications to and from AWS in the event of an individual application failure, site-wide outage, or as part of a planned migration. Powered by journal-based recovery, Zerto eliminates the potential for high data loss experienced with legacy backup methods. Minimize the impact of disasters, logical corruptions, or ransomware attacks by utilizing Zerto to restore VMs, files, and folders from within seconds before an incident occurred.

  • Installs in on-premises infrastructure with no production impact
  • Easily deploys in AWS
  • Store replica and journal data on cost-effective S3 object-storage
  • Create recovery VMs when needed, with pre-configured sizing and network settings
  • Failover to AWS when ready
  • Burst and expand on-demand then migrate back to on-premises when ready
  • Use AWS Storage Gateway as a cloud backup target for long-term retention
  • Configuring AWS for Zerto
