IT Intelligence Bulletin – Zerto, an industry leader for IT Resilience, has announced it is partnering with IBM Services to provide the replication engine behind IBM’s unique resiliency orchestration solution.

Specifically, Zerto IT Resilience Platform will be available to IBM customers through the IBM Resiliency Orchestration DRaaS solution for simplified, rapid recovery of virtual infrastructure.

IBM’s Resiliency Orchestration DRaaS Solution stands as a unique offering to help organizations recover all of their virtual and physical workloads, whether running on an IBM mainframe, IBM Power AIX, IBM System I, SUN Solaris or HP-UX system, and to ensure coordinated application recovery throughout. This is significant, as the offering automates the workflow of disaster recovery for a customer’s complete heterogeneous environment to provide a more predictable, simplified and always-on operation that leads to reduced risk, cost, testing and recovery time.

IBM Resiliency Orchestration is for disaster recovery and cyber resiliency, and is available on customer premises, IBM Cloud and IBM resiliency data centers. It is available as both software and a managed service. The offering has the capability to include Zerto’s replication technology, the complete VMware stack and the end-to-end IBM managed services using IBM’s Resiliency Orchestration tool, all in a single dashboard.

“With the help of Zerto’s replication technology, IBM customers can quickly recover their virtualized workloads regardless of the underlying technologies. The combined solution helps solve many IT resilience challenges that enterprise organizations face when working with legacy applications that take advantage of virtual and physical infrastructure,” said Mehran Hadipour, Director of Global Business Development, Zerto.
