New IBM Cloud/Zerto Platinum Partnership Promises Unrivaled Data Protection

October 19, 2021

Expect new integrations and capabilities as IBM joins the highest, most exclusive level of Zerto’s Alliance Partner program.

At Zerto, we work closely with our alliance partners to provide integrated solutions that improve the way organizations manage their data. Now, our long-time partner IBM is joining a select five at the highest level of our Zerto Alliance Partner (ZAP) Program—Platinum—enabling IBM and Zerto to work closer than ever before on new ways to provide a seamless experience for IBM Cloud customers looking to protect and manage their data with Zerto. To be eligible for Platinum Status, partners much achieve the highest level of monthly recurring revenue, new customer acquisition, and demonstrate technical excellence.

Seamless Protection through Zerto and IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions Shared

Earlier this year, IBM launched Zerto on IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions Shared, offering a VMware-based multi-tenant disaster recovery option to a huge array of new organizations. But that’s only the beginning: This new solution now brings VMware users the best of both IBM Cloud and Zerto thanks to our deepened partnership. With Zerto and IBM Cloud working together, organizations are able to manage all of their IBM Cloud backup and recovery data directly in the cloud or a VMware environment, all while having access to the Zerto platform’s industry-leading recovery in case of a ransomware attack or outage.

Growing Solutions Together

Out of over 350 MSPs, IBM is now one of five collaborating with us at the exclusive Platinum level to deepen the ways that the Zerto platform integrates with IBM Cloud Services. This news comes as no surprise on the tail of IBM’s big win at ZertoCON 2021—Growth MSP of the Year! IBM has been working tirelessly to expand their MSP offerings this past year, and we at Zerto are thrilled for the opportunity to expand on our existing integrations with IBM Cloud:

  • Single-click Zerto deployment from the IBM Cloud
  • Variable RPO (seconds) + RTO (minutes) options for data recovery
  • Zerto infrastructure management through IBM Cloud
  • Seamless VM failover/failback and migration

“While we have been working closely with IBM for many years, we are thrilled to deepen our collaboration with them as a Platinum partner. Expect to see unprecedented levels of integration
moving forward.”

Christina Rauscher,
Global Alliances Director at Zerto

The Promising Future of IBM Cloud and Zerto

What’s more, our work with IBM will go beyond integrating solutions: We plan to align with IBM teams closely in sales, marketing, and development to solidify our partnership across our respective organizations. This expanded collaboration ensures that Zerto will become increasingly accessible and integrated into new IBM solutions to come, providing customers with the best possible experience protecting and managing their data. We at Zerto look forward to the continued growth of our relationship with IBM and are excited about the new opportunities for success this partnership will bring—both for us and our customers.
