Zerto Ltd. is a company providing enterprise-class disaster recovery and business continuity software for virtualized infrastructure and cloud environments.[1] Zerto is dual-headquartered in Israel and the United States.

The company's main product, Zerto Virtual Replication won "Best in Show" at the VMworld 2011 Awards.[2]


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). Zerto has received investments from several venture capital firms, including 83North (formerly Greylock IL), Battery Ventures, Harmony Partners, RTP Ventures and USVP. In 2016, the company was ranked #45 on the Deloitte Fast 500 North America list.[3]


Zerto provides disaster recovery solutions for virtualized and cloud infrastructures. The company’s main product, Zerto Virtual Replication, was released in August 2011.[4] The technology leverages 'hypervisor-based replication', which moves data replication up the server stack from the storage layer into the hypervisor. Zerto is entirely hypervisor and storage-agnostic, so data can be replicated to and from any VM operating to a different platform.[5]

The latest version of Zerto Virtual Replication was released in mid-2016 and included replication to Microsoft Azure, one-to-many replication, 30 day data journal and a mobile monitoring app.


Zerto Virtual Replication has been recognized by some of the industry's top organizations. For instance, at VMworld's 2011 Best of Show awards, Zerto's was proclaimed the winner[6] because the Virtual Replication solution was "replication done right".
