VAZATA has announced it has chosen Zerto to build its cloud-based infrastructure as a service (IaaS) disaster recovery offering. The partnership helps IT teams achieve enterprise-class data replication in real-time for disaster recovery within their virtual environments faster and more affordably.

The combination of VAZATA's cloud IaaS platform with Zerto's IT resilience software platform provides full control over disaster recovery processes in cloud virtual environments. This minimizes hardware costs and disaster recovery complexity, supporting extremely quick Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) of minutes and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) of seconds.

“Uninterrupted cloud computing has become a non-negotiable best practice for business,” said Wade Thurman, chief operations officer, VAZATA. “Even a few minutes’ unavailability of data and applications puts a business at risk.”

“VAZATA offers an IaaS platform architected on enterprise-class equipment that delivers rapid provisioning, flexible customization, and outstanding compliance and security, including FedRAMP accreditation,” said Don Wales, vice president global cloud sales, Zerto. “VAZATA’s flexible, secure, and scalable cloud solutions help Zerto customers accomplish their disaster recovery mission.”

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. VAZATA was the first Infrastructure-as-as-Service (IaaS) organization to earn an Authority to Operate (ATO) for the U.S. Federal Government’s “Cloud First” policy.
