The TOP 5 Azure Cloud Backup Solutions report offers organizations guidance on the best solutions for backing up and recovering applications and data hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Evaluated against 12 other solutions, Zerto excelled across a range of features, including backup administration and capabilities configuration, licensing, and pricing to recovery and restores, snapshot administration, and support.
According to the report, Zerto stands out because it allows organizations to control costs by only creating compute instances in Azure during a recovery. It facilitates replication and failover of VMware-based workloads by allowing organizations to replicate and move VMware-based applications and data to Azure and back again when needed. Zerto’s platform also orchestrates cohesive recoveries in Azure by creating consistent groups that replicate, migrate, and recover all VMs in the proper order through continuous replication and journal-based recovery, eliminating gaps in the recovery of data.
This acknowledgement follows the recent announcement that Zerto customers are leading the DR-to-cloud trend with rapid adoption of Azure. In the first half of 2020, global adoption of Microsoft Azure doubled across several customer verticals, and virtual machines protected to Azure using Zerto has doubled year-over-year with half of the consumption driven by the education, financial services, healthcare, and technology sectors.
“Organizations of all sizes continue to move their applications and data to the Microsoft Azure cloud in growing numbers, and they must take steps to protect the applications and data they host there,” commented Jerome Wendt, DCIG president and founder. “As a TOP 5 Azure cloud backup solution, the Zerto IT Resilience Platform delivers the core backup requirements that organizations need to successfully adopt and embrace the Azure cloud.”
“Microsoft Azure is a strategic IT and business investment for organizations around the world, and Zerto is committed to protecting that investment by providing best-in-class backup and recovery,” said Caroline Seymour, VP of product marketing, Zerto. “DCIG’s evaluation further validates our approach to delivering always-available technology so all industries remain uninterrupted by downtime or disruption.”
