Switch immediately in one click

In an emergency, click "FAILOVER" in your Zerto interface to start your backup infrastructure. Implementing your Disaster Recovery Plan has never been so simple!

RTO: a few minutes

Continuous high-speed synchronisation

VMs (+ Vdisk) are copied at an average speed of 90 Mb/s(1) due to the quality of the OVH network, which is 10 times faster than the market standard.
Your data is copied almost in real time.

RPO: a few seconds

Secure data transfer

The OVH fiber-optic network between datacentres is used to sync your data. Data is transferred between different sites via a VPN which means all your exchanges are secure.

Control your budget

Take advantage of a transparent solution where you are in charge of the configuration:

Choose the VMs you want to protect
Choose your backup infrastructure

Thanks to an active/active configuration you can switch production to a second Private Cloud!

Zerto DRP: configuration in just a few minutes

Want to deploy a secondary Private Cloud hosted in a different datacentre to your primary Private Cloud?
Want to deploy your DRP solution and configure it via the Zerto Virtual Manager interface?
Want to migrate your data onto a new infrastructure in one click? It will then be protected and available in a second OVH datacentre.


The ZERTO solution constantly syncs your data at high speed. This minimises the amount of data that you are likely to lose in an emergency. The time it takes to recover from the emergency (RTO) is also greatly reduced because when you switch over your VMs are automatically rebooted on your backup infrastructure.

RPO or "Recovery Point Objective" refers to the maximum time frame you are willing to lose data for.

RTO or "Recovery Time Objective" refers to how quickly you can switch to your backup infrastructure.

DRP: best practice

In order to ensure that your Disaster Recovery Plan is successful you must consider the following key points and take the necessary steps:

Defining your monitoring solution

Setting up a warning system
At least two channels of communication
(SMS, e-mail...)
Independent infrastructure monitoring

Internal DRP organisation

Identification of stakeholders
Structured action plan
Escalation procedure


Simulate switching between infrastructures monthly

Testing moving from one infrastructure to a backup infrastructure is an essential part of your DRP. We suggest that you carry out such tests once a month.
