Zerto Ltd. is a company providing disaster recovery software for virtualized infrastructure and the cloud. The main product, Zerto Virtual Replication won "Best in Show" at the VMworld 2011 Awards. The product is based on 'hypervisor-based replication', a technology that moves asynchronous replication from the physical storage and disk arrays to the virtualization abstraction layer. This allows for storage-agnostic replication; i.e., a virtual machine ("VM") can be replicated to another VM operating on a different storage technology. Founded in 2009, Zerto is a privately held company funded by Battery Ventures, Greylock and U.S. Venture Partners. The company was co-founded by Ziv and Oded Kedem. Ziv Kedem had previously been a founder of Kashya, which was acquired in 2006 by EMC.
