an industry leader for IT resilience, has today reported significant
momentum from its worldwide partner relationship with Microsoft. Zerto
saw a 330 percent increase in co-sell deals from 2017 to 2018 and is
consistently performing as a global top 10 Microsoft Co-Sell Partner.
Zerto is increasing investment in the partnership through the Azure
Sponsorship program, and by offering key support for upcoming Microsoft
End of Support (EOS) migrations and future roadmap coordination.
“Our partnership with Microsoft has become a highly collaborative and
effective solution for customers who want to move beyond backup and
recovery, to IT resilience,” commented Peter Kerr, VP of global
alliances, Zerto. “Microsoft products and cloud services blend
seamlessly with the Zerto IT Resilience Platform to offer IT leaders
simplicity, enterprise scale and agile data protection, so it is
important for us to continue to work closely to enable adoption.”
As part of the Microsoft Azure Sponsorship program and in coordination
with Microsoft, Zerto is offering up to $3,000 of free Azure credits for
assessments, proof of concepts and deployments. Available to current
customers, prospects or partners, these funds can help provide guidance
on how to fully harness a current Zerto deployment, expand a partial
deployment or provide a risk-free way for the cloud curious to test out
adoption and migration in their environment.
Additionally, the coming year expects to see Microsoft end support for
both Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008, a challenge that customers
need to address. Zerto is ideally positioned to assist users with legacy
workload migration. Customers can use Zerto to migrate workloads in just
three clicks for simple, hassle-free upgrades to currently supported
systems. Microsoft is helping to smooth the migration path by offering
three years of support for customers that migrate EOS workloads.
Customers, potential customers and partners can learn more about how to
harness the power of combined Zerto and Microsoft offerings in joint
roadshows throughout this year.
