Data Protection Company Zerto Raises $13 Million

Zerto is a startup that offers enterprise-class business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) services for companies that have a virtualized infrastructure. Some of the awards that Zerto won includes the Best of Show at VMworld 2011 and the 2011 Product of the Year Gold Award.  Zerto’s Virtual Replication software is the industry’s first hypervisor-based replication solution for tier-one applications.  Zerto’s Disaster Recovery solutions replaces the traditional array-based BCDR, which cannot deal with virtual environments.

Zerto has raised $13 million in funding in order to build on their recovery platform.  Zerto will also use the funding to develop their recovery and virtualization technology along with hiring additional marketing and developer talent.

This round of funding was led by RTP Ventures with participation from existing investors Battery Ventures, Greylock Partners, and U.S. Venture Partners.  Murat Bicer of RTP Ventures will be joining Zerto’s board of directors.

Zerto launched in 2009 and they have offices in Israel and Boston.  The company has raised a total of $34.2 million in funding thus far.
