Mike Matchett of Small World Big Data interviews Caroline Seymour, VP Product Marketin of Zerto
about the latest advancements in Zerto's products, specifically Zerto 10. The new version promises enhanced security features, including a vault and the capability to run the software with different cloud providers. Ransomware, backup, and recovery remain pertinent concerns in the tech industry, with an emphasis on the importance of data recovery. Caroline emphasizes that disaster recovery (D.R.) is the ultimate goal, as it shifts the focus from merely backing up data to ensuring its effective recovery. Since being acquired by HP in September 2021, Zerto has been integrating its technology into HP's Greenlake, with a launch expected the following June. Zerto is recognized for pioneering continuous data protection since 2009. Its unique offerings include near-synchronous replication, journaling capability, and app-centric consistency. This continuous protection allows users to recover data from any specified point, eliminating the reliance on the last backup. In the context of ransomware, Zerto's solution offers a valuable tool. While hackers might dwell in systems for long periods before launching attacks, Zerto's granular recovery options provide users with a robust response mechanism.
