Disaster-recovery-as-a-service provider Zerto has launched a program known as myZerto Labs to provide its customers and partners who have access to its support and partner portal with a free site where they gain hands-on experience with its IT Resilience Platform.

A statement from the company said the program had been in a pilot phase last year and was now going live, following feedback from those who had participated in the trial phase.

The program has three offerings:

Introductory: getting started with Zerto – An introductory technical lab, perfect for getting up and running with Zerto for the first time. It includes first steps, installation and initial configuration in a VMware vSphere environment, as well as setting up protection of VMs in a virtual protection group and providing that group with a failover test. Users will learn firsthand how easy it is to get started with Zerto’s IT Resilience Platform and its always-on, continuous replication.

Intermediate: managing protection with Zerto – This lab will allow users to discover additional features within Zerto on VMware vSphere such as pre-seed and re-IP before practising failovers, tests, and moves. The lab also focuses on ransomware and uses a real infection to practice recovery using Zerto without paying a ransom or losing files.

Advanced: automating Zerto with REST APIs – This offers hands-on training around PowerShell and REST APIs to automate common tasks, such as installing VRAs and creating VPGs. Users will practise editing existing scripts and writing new ones, including putting together a script for automating a failover test. This lab will equip power users to maximise Zerto’s functionality and integrate it into their own automation workflows.

“During the pilot program, we’ve seen a diverse and global set of customers and partners using the labs, with really positive feedback about the experience and the insight that they provide,” said Rob Strechay, senior vice-president of Product at Zerto.

“We are excited to make this available to all prospects, customers and partners as it is a great way for us to connect with them, show the capabilities of the IT Resilience Platform and encourage them to test the limits of how it would work in their environment. Making the implementation of Zerto as seamless and user-friendly as possible is one of our top priorities, and labs are another piece to that puzzle.”
