BOSTON– May 17, 2018 – Zerto, an industry leader for IT resilience, today announced Microsoft as a global sponsor of its third-annual flagship conference ZertoCON, taking place in Boston, May 21-23, 2018. The international sponsorship signifies the continued growing collaboration between Microsoft and Zerto on the journey to provide IT resilience to companies worldwide.
As the global sponsor of Zerto’s annual conference, Microsoft will offer an exclusive ‘Zerto Azure Specialist’ certification, available only at the event, and participate in two speaking sessions:

The news follows the recent announcement of the cross-selling agreement between Zerto and Microsoft in order to align sales initiatives for enterprise customers.

“Zerto is committed to providing innovative solutions for those looking to optimize their cloud strategy – whether as part of the enterprise, or through our channel partners. Microsoft is an integral part of that,” added Peter Kerr, director of Global Alliances at Zerto. “This latest agreement with Microsoft to incentivize our joint sales teams means that customers will be able to reap the benefits of a superior level of IT resilience through both Azure and our own solution.”
