The New Zerto Alliance Partner Program for Technical Alliances – What’s In It For You?
Zerto just announced our new Zerto Alliance Partner (ZAP) Program for Technical Alliances! Whether you’re a large Zerto technology partner or want to grow your midsized business together with Zerto this program can benefit you, big time. Here’s how.
What’s the New Zerto Alliance (ZAP) Program for Technical Alliances?
In Zerto-speak, “technical alliances” refers to any company that collaborates with Zerto to deliver complete solutions in a real-world deployment. I’m talking about hardware manufacturers and software developers who are like-minded and sell into a similar market space. This is very different from our Reseller and Cloud partners who act as trusted advisors to our joint clients and resell Zerto to customers. The Technical Alliance Program is for companies who would like to jointly go-to-market with our complementary technologies.
Some examples of our growth with Technical Alliances
- Zerto Provides BC/DR capabilities for HPE Helion CloudSystem
- Zerto to Protect Workloads running on IBM Cloud
- Exagrid and Zerto Partner to Arm Customers with Replication and Backup Functionality
Our new ZAP Program for Technical Alliances aligns our technical partners into various tiers of support and interaction with Zerto so it’s easier to partner, and save time getting things done. Depending on who you are, that can benefit you in different ways. Let’s take a look…

What’s In It for Partners
Whether you’re a Reseller or Cloud partner, chances are that you work with numerous software and infrastructure companies. Perhaps you’ve struggled with choosing the right fit for a particular data center. Manufacturers can say they work together, but what does that really mean for you and your clients?
With ZAP for Technology Partners, we’re taking some of the guesswork out of defining the right solution for business continuity and disaster recovery. By checking our partner listing page, you can see which partners engage at what levels with Zerto. We’ve also spelled out the kinds of activities that take place at each level, too.
What’s in it for end Customers?
When it comes to choosing the right solution for your datacenter, IT Pros must consider more than bits and bytes. You want to know there’s a strong company behind the solution you’ve chosen. As a result, many enterprises ask key questions such as:
- Does this company place an emphasis on developing partnerships with other vendors?
- Has it attracted alliances that demonstrate staying power in the marketplace?
- What kinds of activities occur between this company and its technology partners?
Answering these questions is important when selecting any technology solution, but it’s absolutely critical while considering Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity. With ZAP for Technology Partners, Zerto delivers a clear and flexible framework for driving deep partnerships with the top names in technology. That’s the kind of knowledge that lays all other questions to rest.
