Jefferson National Protects Crucial Production Applications With Zerto

BOSTON, MA, Nov 07, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Zerto, the industry's first hypervisor-based replication solution provider, today announced that Jefferson National has chosen Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) to provide disaster recovery services for its internal file server and production applications. Jefferson National is an innovative financial services firm that provides tax-deferred investing solutions to a network of more than 2,000 registered investment advisors (RIAs) and fee-based advisors nationwide, helping them serve their clients to build wealth and achieve their financial goals.


Jefferson National implemented ZVR to protect a new datacenter that was recently opened for redundancy and failover purposes. The company is currently protecting a variety of mission-critical production applications including SQL servers, web servers, Exchange and its online variable annuity product, a unique tax-deferred investing solution that allows advisors and their clients to manage and trade between more than 380 different underlying funds, including stock funds, bond funds, commodity funds, ETF portfolios and more. By replacing its previous replication technology with Zerto, Jefferson National achieved a recovery point objective (RPO) near zero and reduced its recovery time objective (RTO) from four hours down to minutes.

"Zerto's replication solution is incredibly simple to set up, use and manage. We recently did a disaster recovery test to fail over production to our Atlanta data center. With just a few clicks, and in less than 30 minutes, we had all of our production applications back up," said Jeff Chandler, VP of Technology Operations, Jefferson National. "Zerto's hypervisor-based replication solution eliminates risk. Furthermore, support has been outstanding, and it delivers on the RPO/RTOs that our company requires." Zerto offers a virtual-aware business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) solution, which replicates data within the virtual infrastructure instead of in physical storage. By moving replication to the hypervisor, companies extend the benefits of virtualization, including flexibility, mobility and scalability, to their disaster recovery solutions. Zerto's hypervisor-based replication combines the enterprise-class features of physical replication with the flexibility, ease- of-management and control, and scalability of virtual environments.

"As with all our customers, our goal is to provide Jefferson National with the most powerful yet user-friendly BC/DR solution available for the enterprise," said Ziv Kedem, CEO, Zerto, Inc. "We know that every second counts in the financial services industry, and specifically designed ZVR to eliminate lengthy outages of the sort that previously threatened not only Jefferson National but also its network of advisors and their clients."
