Zerto has launched its new technical alliances program, to bring together complementary technology companies to deliver hybrid cloud and business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) solutions to market. Early members of the ZAP Technical Alliance Program include Microsoft, AWS, IBM, HPE, Nutanix, Pure Storage, Quantum Corporation, Nimble Storage, ExaGrid, Infinidat, Kaminario, Pivot3, Tegile, Embotics and Turbonomics.
The Zerto Alliance Partner (ZAP) Program for Technical Alliances empowers like-minded infrastructure and software companies with the tools to deliver enterprises complete solutions for application protection and mobility for enterprises’ public, private and hybrid cloud environments. ZAP adds technology vendors to the company’s partner business model, which already includes traditional Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs).
“As more and more organisations move to Microsoft Azure, our relationship with Zerto continues to build and adds tremendous value to our customer base,” said Feliz Montpellier, Worldwide Leader, Global ISV Alliances, Microsoft. “Zerto’s solution for Microsoft Azure not only provides our customers with the BC/DR and hybrid cloud capabilities they need, but the coordinated go-to-market activities will help bring innovative products to market to help enterprises garner more value from their IT investments.”
The ZAP program is an annual, tiered program offering Silver, Gold and Platinum membership levels based on the mutual agreement to drive strategic, global impact in the market. Based on the partner’s level within the ZAP program, Alliance Partners are able to unlock resources, support and services to speed time-to-market and grow the mutual joint customer base.
“Nutanix has been leading the charge to help organisations worldwide make the transition to Enterprise Clouds that have the agility and scalability of public clouds with predictability and control of on premise infrastructure,” said Venugopal Pai, Vice President of Alliance and Business Development at Nutanix. “We are excited to work with Zerto to help joint customers ensure critical systems and data stay available and protected as they deploy Enterprise Clouds.”
“Strategic partnerships and alliances have always been a crucial element of Zerto’s success,” said Peter Kerr, Director of Technical Alliances, Zerto. “This program expansion serves to formalise a platform that provides more joint value between Zerto and our alliance partners to mutually grow our businesses, while helping to better serve customers.”
