5 Benefits of Choosing Azure VMware Solution
and Zerto for Disaster Recovery
Disaster recovery is a critical aspect of any organization’s IT infrastructure. Companies that experience unplanned downtime risk significant financial loss, loss of productivity, and damage to their reputation. To ensure business continuity, many organizations use disaster recovery solutions to protect their data and applications in the event of a disaster.
One such solution is the Azure VMware Solution (AVS), which provides an integrated environment for running VMware workloads on Azure. AVS provides you the compute, networking, and storage to be able to supply you with a fully managed Disaster Recovery (DR) site. In addition to AVS, many clients elect to pursue Zerto in addition to AVS. Zerto is a leading replication technology for disaster recovery that simplifies management and reduces complexity in the configuration. In this blog, we will explore the value of combining AVS and Zerto as a disaster recovery environment for an on-premises data center.
What is Azure VMware Solution (AVS)?
Azure VMware Solution (AVS) is a fully managed service that enables organizations to run VMware workloads natively on Azure. With AVS, organizations can use their existing VMware tools and processes to manage and run their applications in Azure. AVS provides a consistent infrastructure across on-premises and cloud environments, making it easier to migrate workloads between the two.
What is Zerto?
Zerto is a leading replication technology for disaster recovery. Zerto replicates data and applications in real-time to a secondary site, enabling organizations to failover quickly in the event of a disaster. Zerto’s continuous data protection ensures that organizations can recover data to the point of failure, minimizing data loss and downtime.
