Zerto for Kubernetes Released
April 26, 2021

Zerto has announced the availability of Zerto for Kubernetes (Z4K) and previewed Zerto 9.0.

Zerto’s Z4K applies its leading continuous data protection (CDP) technology to next-generation, containerized applications, enabling a new paradigm for backup and disaster recovery of applications and data across cloud and on-premises deployments. Additionally, Zerto 9.0, to be released in July, will be delivering cloud data management and protection solutions by adding backup to S3-compatible storage such as Cloudian, introducing cloud tiering for AWS and Azure and immutability in public cloud.

Zerto for Kubernetes provides continuous data protection-based backup and disaster recovery to integrate into the application deployment lifecycle for containerized applications to enable data protection as code. Z4K supports Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, and Red Hat OpenShift.

As every organization strives to accelerate application development, the reliance on a microservice architecture, typically running in containers, is becoming the new normal. By adding Zerto’s continuous data protection to the Kubernetes control plane, they will be protected from data loss and downtime even in cases of user errors, malicious activity, or infrastructure failures without having to worry about backup windows or external services.

The solution is designed for Kubernetes running on-premises or in the cloud as part of its cloud data management and protection platform. It enables users to easily protect and recover any Kubernetes application and its persistent data for accelerated delivery and deployment.

Zerto 9.0 will introduce new public cloud backup platforms and capabilities for complete data protection flexibility. Zerto 9.0 introduces backup to S3-compatible storage such as Cloudian, cloud tiering for AWS and Azure, and immutability for public cloud.

Specifically, cloud tiering for AWS and Azure tiers cloud data into Amazon S3 Glacier and Azure Archive. Users can define retention policies in Zerto for storing and migrating long-term retention backups from online frequent access storage classes into more cost-effective in-frequent access storage classes all the way through to archive storage in both Azure and AWS. This leverages cloud native APIs for tiering the backups without consuming compute resources to maximize cost saving capabilities.

In addition, immutability settings for backups in AWS can now be managed within the Zerto user interface. Zerto users can set how long backups can remain unaltered in order to safeguard cloud backups from malicious deletion or modification of data, such as from ransomware.

Zerto 9.0 will also offer a range of other new features including Enhanced Backup Management, Instant VM Restore From journal and File Restore from LTR. Each of these capabilities help users to maximize cloud data management and protection. Zerto 9.0 will be available in July 2021.

“...Organizations that are building their future around cloud native architectures need to have full confidence in the integrity of their infrastructure, resilience, and their ability to recover from issues such as cyberattacks and technology failures without delay. These solutions both deliver on those objectives.” commented Deepak Verma, VP, Product, Zerto.
