Zerto Partnership

We are passionate about arming enterprise companies with the cloud IT infrastructure they need to support IT resiliency in the spirit of progress and innovation. That’s why we’re excited to officially announce a partnership between OVH US and Zerto® to provide enterprise grade disaster recovery.

Robust disaster recovery and resilience for evolving IT

This Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offering will be available as a part of OVHcloud IT resiliency services, combining the reliability of OVH’s Hosted Private Cloud with Zerto’s proven capabilities to protect and recover data and applications.

Zerto will be available as an option with our Hosted Private Cloud products which provide dedicated, single-tenant environments for consistent, reliable performance. With Hosted Private Cloud, companies have the added freedom to mix and match a variety of compute and storage configurations for a truly customized solution that can be easily scaled in the case of an event so they don’t overpay or overprovision. All of this is backed by OVHcloud’s premium support. If something happens, we have your back.

“In today’s increasingly volatile and unpredictable world, we are committed to providing enterprise customers, particularly those in mid-sized businesses, with choices to ensure that their most valuable assets, their data, are well-protected,” said David Wigglesworth, Chief Revenue Officer of OVH US. “This is one of many collaborative opportunities we’re pursuing to help support resiliency when it comes to IT infrastructure.”

Providing rapid recovery for VMware-based workloads and beyond

The Hosted Private Cloud is a vSphere-based offering, built on the VMware tools many enterprise customers know and love, giving customers the same environment they have on premises - just in the cloud. This makes OVHcloud the ideal failover location for their VMware-based workloads. There isn’t a need to refactor applications in case of an event, alleviating risk and decreasing recovery times. 

Hosted Private Cloud, now supported by Zerto, provides an RPO of under one minute to minimize data loss during disaster recovery events – ensuring consistent and continuous replication of production workloads for the utmost efficiency. Its customizable configuration provides true lift and shift options, requiring less effort and offering more control.

As this partnership grows, OVH US and Zerto will continue to evolve the solution based on customer needs and expand across the breadth of OVHcloud offerings.

IT resilience is more critically important than ever in a business world where ‘always-on’ applications and services are imperative to success,” said Don Wales, VP, Global Cloud Sales, Zerto. “Through our partnership with OVH US, we are working with organizations to deliver comprehensive solutions that mitigate planned and unplanned downtime, enable agility and empower businesses to thrive in a digitally driven world.”
