Zerto Replication to the Cloud – Failover Considerations and Best Practices

Mike Mosley

Previously in this blog series, we have installed Zerto, created our VPGs and monitored the replication to ensure everything is meeting the required SLA. Unfortunately, a meteor has just plummeted to earth and destroyed our datacenter. All systems and access to our production is offline and we need to get our business back online ASAP. Luckily, all we need is a phone, or internet access to restore business functionality.

Everyone wakes up in January 3rd and decides it's time to get their disaster recovery plan in order. It's been a priority for years - and I bet your management team will fight you tooth and nail over the costs yet again. This is a dance you know well.
