Calamu: The Next Generation of Data Protection
Navisite, which is part of Spectrum Enterprise, says the new client wins are a result of a strategic partnership with Zerto, a specialist business continuity and disaster recovery services provider. Since agreeing the partnership four years ago, Navisite and Zerto say they have worked together to help more than 100 mutual clients. Business continuity and disaster recovery services remain a “top priority” for organizations as leaders and auditors demand higher resiliency from outages, threats from ransomware and data loss, says Navisite. As part of their strategic partnership, Navisite and Zerto have combined their data replication and recovery solutions and software to offer new enterprise business continuity and disaster recovery services. They claim their combined offering simplifies the critical aspects of data protection including data management, recovery diagnostics and failover testing. Sumeet Sabharwal, group vice president and general manager, Navisite, says: “We have combined Navisite’s service provider operations scale with Zerto’s enterprise-grade replication technology to provide clients a comprehensive disaster recovery-as-a-service portfolio aimed at improving the security and resiliency of mission-critical workloads. “As enterprises seek to accelerate their hybrid cloud journey, we are doubling down on our partnership with Zerto to unlock new, multi-cloud and hyperscale capabilities.” The four new customers Navisite and Zerto are highlighting are:
- Etc.venues – which uses Navisite’s managed private cloud and Zerto software to replicate virtual workloads and self-manage all virtual machines hosted in its UK-based data center. By deploying the Navisite solution, Etc. is said to have realised cost savings of approximately 40% and a 20% increase in service availability to its existing clients.
- Badger Sportswear – is utilizing Zerto’s solutions to spin up replication of 95% of its production servers at its Statesville headquarters, as a first step towards ensuring complete disaster recovery protection with the cloud migration of its critical operation data. This investment supports Badger’s multimillion-dollar operations and its ability to confidently ship hundreds of thousands of pieces of merchandise daily.
- Brown University – has leveraged the network of Navisite partner OSHEAN and Navisite’s VMware cloud solution to develop its disaster recovery program. Brown uses Zerto to continuously replicate business services to the NaviCloud®, which positions them to be well-suited to move to a virtual network.
- IEEE GlobalSpec Media Solutions – has transformed its infrastructure and established a disaster recovery strategy that supports its need for continuous uptime and a high-performing user experience for its multiple web properties.
Ziv Kedem, founder and CEO of Zerto, says: “We see our cloud service provider partners as key to disrupting existing enterprise DR and resiliency deployment methods, and Navisite is an important part of that. “Our partnership has been growing rapidly since we began working together to lead the way through the evolution of the legacy DRaaS market. “We look forward to continuing to jointly serve clients who are modernising their disaster recovery programs by moving to the cloud.”
