Zerto Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity Software for Virtualized Data Centers and Cloud Environments

Zerto provides enterprise-class disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) software specifically for virtualized data centers and cloud environments. Zerto’s award winning solution provides enterprises with data replication & recovery designed specifically for virtualized infrastructure and the cloud. Zerto Virtual Replication is the industry’s first hypervisor-based replication solution for tier-one applications, replacing traditional array-based BC/DR solutions that were not built to deal with the virtual paradigm.
  • Zerto Disaster Recovery for a Virtualized World Zerto’s award winning hypervisor-based replication software enables alignment of your Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery (BCDR) plan with your IT strategy. By using hypervisor-based data replication, you can reduce DR complexity and hardware costs and still protect your mission-critical virtualized applications.
  • Zerto Replication for VMware Zerto’s replication for VMware enables automated data recovery, failover and failback and lets you select any VM in VMware’s vCenter. It’s that simple – no storage configuration necessary, no agent installation on guest required.
  • Zerto Recovery for Hyper-V Zerto Virtual Replication, the industry’s first hypervisor-based replication solution for VMware environments, is now available for Microsoft Hyper-V. Purpose-built for production workloads and deployed on a virtual infrastructure, Zerto Virtual Replication is the only technology that combines near-continuous replication with block-level, application-consistent data protection across hosts and storage.
  • Zerto Hypervisor Replication Zerto offers a virtual-aware, software-only, tier-one, enterprise-class replication solution purpose-built for virtual environments. By moving replication up the stack from the storage layer into the hypervisor, Zerto created the first and only replication solution that delivers enterprise-class, virtual replication and BC/DR capabilities for the data center and the cloud.

Packet Power: Turn Basic PDUs into "Smart PDUs" Minutes

Upgrading your standard un-metered PDU to a fully metered PDU doesn’t have to mean going to the expense of purchasing a new smart PDU along with the costs of adding network cable drops and a massive integration effort with a monitoring program. Packet Power “Smart Cables” simplify the process with the entire solution often costing less than most metered PDUs and can be implemented quickly and easily. 

Packet Power "smart cables"
What is a "Smart Cable"?
Smart Cables are standard power cables with low profile embedded wireless network power monitors. 
  • Provide high accuracy measurements from current (A) to energy usage (kWh)
  • Fail safe design that can never interrupt the current path
  • Available in any plug type from 10-63 Amps and certified for use in most countries

Installing is easy as "1-2-3"...

Cost-Effective Solution: Less Expensive than Metered PDUs without Compromise
Packet-Power-savings.gifDeploying a Smart Cable network is more affordable than you may think. Adding a Smart Cable to your standard PDU often costs far less than many metered PDUs while providing all the functionality. Looking at the total cost of ownership, the Smart Cable scenario becomes more attractive as it has a single IP address and network drop per hundreds of PDUs eliminating the costs of network cables and maintaining a fleet of IP addresses. Also there are no network cable drops needed for Smart Cables. Monitoring also becomes much more affordable as there are no commission or programming costs associated with the Packet Power monitoring solution. Even when using the EMX monitoring portal, licensing fees are a fraction of that of conventional systems, or non-existent when only using the SNMP or ModBus data.
