BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire -01/19/12)- Zerto, the industry's first hypervisor-based replication solution, today announced that the company has started 2012 off with positive growth and industry recognition. Zerto won SearchServerVirtualization.com's 2011 'Product of the Year' award in the Backup and Storage category, added customers in key verticals and expanded its U.S. operations and sales efforts in Q4. Furthermore, Paul Zeiter, formerly vice president of sales at EMC's Infrastructure Software Group, has joined the company as vice president of global sales.
"Since its launch, Zerto has made great progress in building both mind and market share for the company's game changing approach to business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR)," said Zeiter. "I am looking forward to working with the team and industry partners to make Zerto an even greater success." Mr. Zeiter led sales at EMC's replication and virtual storage group for six years, and has a record of success spanning 24 years in storage related tech.
In Q4 2011, Zerto added new customers for its enterprise BC/DR solution in the healthcare, insurance and financial industries. One of its new customers is Suburban Health, which implemented Zerto Virtual Replication to boost BC/DR capabilities and effectiveness. "Suburban Health chose Zerto Virtual Replication in order to maximize uptime for its patient-critical applications and to provide protection from data center disasters," said Jim Graham, President of DJ Graham and Associates, a consultant to Suburban Health.
Zerto Virtual Replication won the Gold award in SearchServerVirtualization.com's 2011 Product of the Year awards for Backup and Storage, a category that includes disaster recovery.
