The 10th Annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium has announced Zerto as one of ten finalists for the 2013 Innovation Showcase, as its Zerto Virtual Replication disaster recovery solution represents a cutting-edge B2B solution that combines strong value and innovation to enterprise IT. Zerto will receive key exposure to many of the world´s most creative and influential IT executives at the Symposium on May 22, 2013.
After careful consideration, the Innovation Showcase Judges, (consisting of MIT faculty, entrepreneurs, and early-stage investors) chose Zerto because it:
- Is selling B2B or B2C enterprise IT solutions to CIOs or corporate departments
- Shows innovation as well as potential impact on the top and bottom lines
“It´s a privilege to have been selected as a finalist for the 2013 Innovation Showcase and to be recognized for our innovative approach to disaster recovery for virtualized environments,” said Ziv Kedem, co-founder and CEO of Zerto.
Zerto offers a virtual-aware business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) solution — Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) — which replicates data within the virtual infrastructure instead of in physical storage. Zerto´s hypervisor-based replication combines the enterprise-class features of physical replication with the flexibility, ease- of-management and scalability of virtual environments.
“We are pleased to award these top ten Innovation Showcase finalists, as their technologies represent cutting edge solutions with strategic value,” said David L. Verrill, Executive Director of the MIT Center for Digital Business, and the Co-chair of the Innovation Showcase. “The Symposium provides these early-stage companies a foundation to demonstrate their solutions that are architecting the future of technology and creates an environment for valuable partnership opportunities.”
