Zetta.net sells a 3-in-1 cloud backup, on-premise backup, disaster recovery, and archiving product most notable for its high speed data transfer. It uses lightweight software to replicate customer data, creating a second copy in Zetta's bi-coastal enterprise-grade data centers that is available for recovery after a data loss event, such as a server crash or natural disaster. The software supports Windows, Linux, and Mac and has plug-ins for SQL, MS Exchange, Hyper-V, VMware, and NetApp filers.
Zetta's data integrity and protection technology is based on a unique RAIN6 N+3 storage architecture, which adds an additional parity node: RAID 6 traditionally has 2 parity nodes, while Zetta's has 3. It is also referred to as "RAIN" because data is striped across independent nodes (storage servers), rather than across independent disks.
Zetta was founded in 2009 in Sunnyvale, California by Jeff Whitehead, Lou Montulli, and Jason Harrison. The current CEO is Ali Jenab. Investors in Zetta.net include Sigma Partners, Foundation Capital, and Industry Ventures.
