About Us
Zerto provides enterprise-class disaster recovery and business continuity software specifically for virtualized data centers and cloud environments.

Zerto's award winning solution provides enterprises with continuous data replication & recovery designed specifically for virtualized infrastructure and the cloud. Zerto Virtual Replication is the industry's first hypervisor-based replication solution for tier-one applications, replacing traditional array-based BC/DR solutions that were not built to deal with the virtual paradigm.

Today, enterprises of all sizes are deploying applications on virtualized IT infrastructures and clouds. The values of virtualization including flexibility, scalability and mobility can complicate business continuity efforts in times of disaster. The advantages of virtualization can be in conflict with your ability to recover the business in the event of disaster. Not so with Zerto's virtual-friendly continuous data replication.

Zerto was founded in 2010 by a team of storage industry veterans. Ziv Kedem, Zerto's founder and CEO, previously co-founded Kashya (acquired by EMC in 2006). Backed by 83North (formerly Greylock IL), Battery Ventures, Harmony Partners, RTP Ventures and USVP, Zerto is dual-headquartered in Israel and the United States.
