“Expanding our footprint across these industries speaks to the power and innovation behind the Zerto platform for cloud data management and protection,” says Ziv Kedem, CEO and co-founder, Zerto. “We’re excited to see momentum in the healthcare and public sectors as some of the most respected names around the globe realise that leveraging the cloud for disaster recovery and data protection is critical now more than ever for protecting patients and citizens alike, and it’s simply more efficient.”
“As a leader in long-term healthcare in the South East for more than 50 years, we have extremely high expectations to keep everything available at all times in order to serve our 24,000 patients,” comments Rich Bailey, VP of IT operations, PruittHealth. “After experiencing growth, we determined that a DR-to-cloud strategy with Zerto and Azure would be simpler and more efficient than our previous solution. Since using Zerto, we’ve improved efficiencies that include reducing time required for DR testing and reducing man hours spent on near-daily maintenance and operations.”
“Government organisations like ours are often stretched thin, and each agency consists of a lot of small businesses in a sense,” says Evan Davis, technology and infrastructure manager, Grey County. “Zerto and Azure met all of our varied, demanding requirements. They just work together seamlessly for protection.”
