DRaaS for Zerto

Keep your applications running 24x7x365.

Go beyond protecting your business. Make it resilient. 11:11 DRaaS for Zerto offers customized runbook functionality, optimized RTOs, near-zero RPOs, and automated recovery. Built on 11:11’s award-winning cloud platform with direct integration into Zerto’s industry-leading replication software, our solution gives you complete control of your disaster recovery plan. So when you need it most, it’ll be ready.

Accelerated Recovery Time Objective (RTO)

Traditionally, disaster recovery means recovering data before accessing systems.

With 11:11 DRaaS for Zerto, a journal keeps a historical record of changes made to VMs over the past 30 days. This capability gives users the ability to “rewind” time to before disaster strikes — including data loss, ransomware, and human error. During failover, every end user request is analyzed to determine if the response should be returned directly from the virtual machine or from the journal, whichever is more current. This process continues until the failover is complete.

Ultimately, customers benefit from sub 10 second RPOs and aggressive RTO for speedy recovery (orchestrated recovery). In addition, failover network and integration capabilities allow end users to seamlessly access data during and after a failover event.

DRaaS for Zerto

Disaster Recovery designed for your unique business.

Every business is different. 11:11 DRaaS for Zerto combines industry-leading technology with individual design to meet your specific application and business recovery requirements. 11:11 DRaaS with Zerto features:

Recovery Assurance

Create DR runbooks within the 11:11 Cloud Console to configure recovery groups and simplify the development, management, and execution of your DR plan. With 11:11 DRaaS for Zerto you can:

  • Automate the entire failover and failback process. Use the 11:11 Cloud Console to build DR plans for any scenario including the ability to enable and orchestrate application specific recovery.
  • Create multiple DR plans. Leverage 11:11’s failover wizard to automate the failover and failback process. Automation reduces the errors of manual failback including data loss and data integrity. Alerts and reporting regarding the failover are available in the 11:11 Cloud Console.
  • Test anytime. With the 11:11 Cloud Console, you can personally test your disaster recovery plan to ensure it works. Failover and back without service disruption at any time, without having to fit an arbitrary schedule. Run a full suite of DR testing by selecting a runbook and then invoking the automated test failover. Verify the success of your runbook before there is a disaster.
DRaaS Assurance

Virtual Protection Groups

Protect virtual machines (VMs) by group and/or tier to ensure consistent recovery points (RPOs) across all grouped machines.

  • Define your own RPOs for your VMs. You can define the RPO for individual VMs, or for group VMs, to achieve RPOs of seconds with little impact on performance or resource usage of the primary system.
  • Perform partial failovers. You can group VMs supporting multi-tier applications. Partial failovers can help you reduce costs and simplify failback.
  • Perform granular restores. A checkpoint journal at the recovery site can store RPO points from between 1 – 720 hours, enabling you to restore to points prior to the disaster.
  • Gain VSS awareness for certain applications such as SQL and Exchange.
DRaaS Recovery Groups

Performance, Efficiency, and Individual Design.

11:11 DRaaS utilizes efficient technologies to ensure failover and failback meet your business and application-specific requirements. 11:11 DRaaS for Zerto comes with:

  • Fast replication. Integrated network compression enables both closer Recovery Points and reduced WAN bandwidth requirements.
  • Existing network compatibility. 11:11 DRaaS can be configured with recovery networks that match your internal private network range(s), yielding a more aggressive RTO with no reconfiguration of VMs.
  • DNS failover. Disaster recovery management is simplified with the integration of DNS management into the cloud console. DNS management can be performed from the same location in which you manage cloud resources and disaster recovery. Easily manage your public IP blocks, DNS zones, records, and make updates to all your DNS records in the event of a failover through an easy-to-use search and edit tool within the console.
  • Storage options. 11:11 supports replication of VMware virtual machines and is storage-agnostic with two tiers of encrypted storage to ensure all key workloads are protected.
  • SSAE 16/ISO 27001 certified Tier III data centers around the globe. In addition to global data centers, 11:11 also maintains connections to more than 500 IP providers to ensure your data is secure, fixed within your chosen country, and fails over rapidly.
DRaaS Efficient Design

Flexible Cloud Adoption

One of the challenges associated with moving to the cloud, or adopting a multi-cloud strategy, is the need for end user access during a failover event.

The ability to communicate with other networks or applications can be critical for success. To ensure consistent communication between workloads, 11:11 offers unparalleled network flexibility to maintain and preserve your existing network policies and investments to ensure your workloads can communicate. This also allows you to proceed with your existing corporate network strategy without disruption.

11:11’s network flexibility gives you control of your existing and future application environments via:

  • Familiar and integrated VMware-based network services for security segmentation and access through IPsec/SSL VPN managed in the 11:11 Cloud Console.
  • “Bring your own” options including physical/virtual network appliances, flexible carrier and circuit options (MPLS/VPLS, direct circuit) for global connectivity.
  • VMware NSX, Megaport/SD-WAN and our high throughput circuits for performance and integration purposes.

BaaS and DRaaS work together as part of an overall data protection and recovery strategy for IT. With BaaS, customers copy production data at regular, planned intervals to the cloud for long-term retention. If the data is lost, stolen, or accidentally deleted, the copied data from the BaaS environment is copied back to the production environment.

DRaaS solutions are distinct from BaaS and offer an important advantage. With DRaaS, all critical components are replicated to the cloud for short-term retention. This includes the application(s), data, and networking. In the event the production data AND physical infrastructure is compromised (i.e. through flooding, fire, cybercrime, etc), the DRaaS environment provides a complete secondary environment to run production applications. Together, BaaS and DRaaS provide complete protection against nearly all data and hardware loss scenarios.

Pricing is all-inclusive including your Zerto license, the cost of reserved storage (2 tiers), compute resources (CPU/RAM), unlimited bandwidth, and protection for an unlimited number of VMs. Burst resources feature pay-as-you-go pricing, with no commitments and no term contracts for RAM and CPU usage during testing and failover. Specific pricing depends on your environment and the resources consumed including the amount of storage needed, CPU/RAM for live VMs, and RTO and RPO requirements. Our team of in-house experts can quickly determine your resource need using our free tool, 11:11 Catalyst..

We understand the importance of preserving existing resources and investments when adopting new technologies. For this reason, we offer a number of solutions that enable existing networks, including other cloud provider networks, to communicate with your new 11:11 service. In addition, we have dedicated Network Services available in the case you need assistance beyond standard configurations. Please reach out to us to learn more.

Yes, we support 3rd party virtual appliance integration such as VMware NSX Edge and Cisco ASA.
