Replication – innovating disaster recovery

With SecondSite as part of your wider disaster recovery plan, your business is better prepared and can successfully manage crises if the unexpected happens. It enables your business to replicate your virtualised IT environment into Zettagrid’s cloud and if a disaster were to impact your business, you can have your IT up and running within minutes until your primary site recovers. Say goodbye to expensive secondary data centres, duplicate IT equipment and lengthy wait periods interrupting your operations and impacting your business.

With Zettagrid cloud as your secondary data centre and resources via our mature VDC product, with replication software that does the heavy lifting using industry standard Zerto and full automation using our middleware that integrates all the components, replication is the right solution for you and your business.

The product keeps your on-premise production virtualised environments synchronised to the Zettagrid cloud enabling real time DR failover and failback with Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs)of mere seconds and Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) of a few minutes.

Replicate between Zones with SecondSite Interzone

Testing and deployment of SecondSite is fast, with the lowest RPOs available of any cloud service. Performing a full failover takes only a few minutes with next to no impact to your day-to-day business operations. Your users probably won’t even know that you failed over into the cloud.

"The most shocking thing was the simplicity. I have been in IT for 20 years, and things just get more and more complex. The Zettagrid team told us this would be easy, and we were not disappointed. This was very easy to install, implement and maintain."

- Troy Cook, IT Manager, HIF

Health Insurance Fund (HIF) of Australia is a not-for-profit organisation with over 120,000 members who rely on them to provide the insurance coverage they need for their healthcare. Their IT team was already stretched and was using a Site Recovery Manager with array-based replication, which was complex and costly, as it required a full secondary site.

SecondSite was the solution HIF needed.
