Today we announced the launch of SecondSite™, a real time disaster recovery replication solution built on the award-winning Zerto platform. SecondSite™ provides channel partners the ability to offer recovery site, data synchronisation, accessibility and activation for part or all of their customers’ virtual environment.
As a Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), SecondSite™ enables the customers of channel partners to replicate their virtualised IT environment into Zettagrid’s cloud. If a disaster were to impact their operations, their IT is up and running within minutes until the primary site recovers.
With instant deployment and ease of use, SecondSite™ represents a great opportunity for channel partners to introduce their customers to cloud, virtual replication (VR), virtual data centres (VDC) and a range of managed services channel partners can provide them.
Gone are the days of expensive secondary data centres, duplicate IT equipment and lengthy wait periods interrupting operations and impacting productivity.
“We believe SecondSite™ is the future of disaster recovery,” said Nathan Harman, Zettagrid managing director. “It’s the most affordable, quick and efficient disaster recovery solution available today. And because it’s scalable, it’s available to all businesses large or small. This is particularly beneficial for channel partners who work with a broad range of customers. Whether it’s one virtual machine (VM) or thousands of VMs, SecondSite™ delivers the same reliable and affordable solution.”
Testing and deployment of SecondSite™ is fast, with the lowest recovery point objectives (RPOs) in the market today. Performing a full failover takes only a few minutes, with next to no impact to day-to-day operations. Users probably won’t even know when operations have failed over into the cloud.
“This is an innovative approach,” said Matthew Kates, Zerto country manager, Australia and New Zealand. “With SecondSite™ built on Zerto’s reliable cloud business continuity platform and utilising virtual replication, businesses of all sizes will benefit from the simplicity, reliability and substantial cost savings.”
