Zerto Helps Macquarie Telecom Deliver Cost-Effective Cloud DR Services to Enterprises Across Australia
Macquarie Telecom has joined the Zerto Cloud Disaster Recovery Ecosystem (ZCE) to offer best-in-class cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) services to its customers, powered by Zerto's award-winning hypervisor-based solution, Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR). Joining more than 100 companies in the Zerto partner ecosystem, Macquarie Telecom can now deliver simple-to-manage cloud DR services, enabling Australian businesses of all sizes to cost-effectively protect production applications both to the cloud and in the cloud.
"Companies are increasingly interested in leveraging the cloud for data protection, but cloud-based DR for production applications has historically been expensive, complicated and ineffective," said James Mystakidis, Group Executive, Hosting, Macquarie Telecom. "Thanks to Zerto's hypervisor-based solution, our customers can now cost-effectively enjoy all the benefits of cloud automation and flexibility while ensuring their mission-critical applications remain protected and available, even in the event of an unplanned outage."
"By joining Zerto's Cloud DR Ecosystem, Macquarie Telecom is demonstrating its commitment to provide user-friendly, storage-agnostic DR that delivers value," said Ziv Kedem, Zerto CEO and co-founder. "The steadily increasing membership of the ZCE to more than 100 service providers confirms that service providers are eager to offer DR services that seamlessly align with their cloud environments and meet the rigorous standards their customers expect."
The LAUNCH Disaster Recovery offering that Macquarie Telecom delivers is based on Zerto's award winning solution, Zerto Virtual Replication. Companies may choose DR-as-a-Service (DRaaS), protecting applications to the cloud, and/or In-Cloud DR, protecting applications deployed in the cloud and replicated to a secondary cloud datacenter.
