The VAIO-certified version of Zerto’s framework, expected to become GA in Q4 2019, allows for deployment and support for Secure Boot for vSphere hosts. This is especially important for government agencies and highly secure environments more generally.
The vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO) allows vendors to develop filters that can intercept any IO requests from a VM to a virtual disk. This integration with Zerto will allow Zerto customers on future IT Resilience Platform versions to create VM replication policies in vCenter’s Storage Policy Based Management for use in continuous data protection and IT Resilience. Certification with VAIO is accomplished by the creation of a tested and validated vSphere Installation Bundle (VIB). Zerto has completed the initial certification of its VIB as part of the development process for its next major release. As part of the certification, Zerto is now listed in the VMware Compatibility Guide.
Zerto Analytics Resource Planning Tool enables users to automate the sizing, scoping and optimization of future on-premises and cloud data protection needs ensuring zero interruption to the business.
Built into the Zerto IT Resilience Platform, Zerto Analytics has a single interface and experience to give users complete visibility of their protected data and applications. It allows users to analyse historical data protection, monitor current data protection status and now with the new Resource Planner, optimize and size for their future data protection needs. The new Resource Planner identifies the resources required for the user’s data protection strategy based on the performance of data centre architecture, including on-premises and cloud, and regardless of vendor.
