TAMPA, Fla., June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DSM Technology Consultants, a leading Managed Cloud provider and Zerto Cloud Service provider, is pleased to feature its extended journal retention capability for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). This valuable DRaaS functionality allows clients the ability to protect Virtual Machines up to 30 days in the past.

These features include push button live DR failover, isolated DR testing, granular individual file recovery, and point in time recovery, all performed without agents or snapshots.

A topical use case for utilizing an extended journal is protection against the increasing ransomware threats.
