Yesterday, 2017-08-22, Zerto released a new version of their Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) and there are quite a enhancements and new features available. As I know many of my readers will be at VMworld next week  it makes sense to step by the Zerto boot #630 and check out all goodness. Below is a short summary of the 5.5 news:

  • Support for vSphere 6.5 which I know will make quite a few of my readers and customers happy.
  • Additional functionality added to the Application Programming Interface (API).
  • Automated Recovery to & from Microsoft Azure including:
    • bi-directional data protection
    • Support for VMs, Virtual Protection Group (VPG), One to many replication & journaling
  • Upgrade process since there is now one upgrade process for all ZVR components.

    • Automatic (on the fly) conversions from VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V to AWS
