Transfreight Uses Zerto to Protect Toyota and Yamaha Supply Chains

Disaster recovery solution protects Transfreight’s mission-critical applications

Boston—Oct. 9, 2012—Third-party logistics (3PL) provider Transfreight—which engineers customized lean supply chains for top manufacturers such as Toyota and Yamaha—now utilizes Zerto’s Virtual Replication (ZVR) for disaster recovery to support its mission-critical applications. Microsoft SQL Server, Great Plains, Exchange, TMW Suite, ADP and Yard Smart are among some of the supported mission-critical applications, which were previously replicated between two main data centers in Kitchener and Cambridge.

The 3PL provider required very aggressive service levels to ensure no interruption to its North American customers. As a result, Transfreight chose Zerto’s solution due to its ability to fail back to a single point in time; its flexibility and scalability in the VMWare environment; and its features and functionality for effortless application recovery.

“With ZVR’s continuous replication, we can achieve our required Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) much more simply and successfully than our previous replication technology allowed,” said Tamas Nemeth, Manager of IT Systems, Transfreight.Zerto provides a virtual and seamless fail over process, where our previous solution required team members to physically be present at both the primary and DR site to coordinate a successful fail over. The power and simplicity of ZVR, combined with the cost savings, made them an easy choice for us.”

Zerto provides enterprise-class virtual replication and Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) solutions for both the data center and the cloud—which provides Transfreight the flexibility to transition to the cloud in the future.

“Like many Zerto customers, Transfreight demands a solution that is virtual aware and cost-effective, yet powerful enough to deliver enterprise-class service levels,” said Ziv Kedem, Chief Executive Officer, Zerto Inc. “ZVR delivers these advanced features while providing an easy on-ramp for the cloud, a strong foundation they can execute upon when they are ready.”
