BOSTON, MA – September 6, 2022 – Zerto, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, today announced its 2022 Partner of the Year Awards as named by the company’s partner advisory board.

Zerto Consulting Partner of the Year: AHEAD
The Zerto Award winner for Consulting Partner of the Year is AHEAD—a leading provider of enterprise cloud solutions. AHEAD leverages Zerto to provide enterprise-class disaster recovery and business continuity software for virtualized infrastructure and cloud environments. The company, which posted major year-on-year growth with Zerto, approaching 200%, achieved this success largely based on a strong focus across Zerto for data center migration and disaster recovery solutions. Through its growth and acquisition strategy, AHEAD has acquired companies like Roundtower and Kovarus, which were top Zerto partners pre-acquisition. Now with AHEAD’s size and scale, both companies have turned into powerhouses in this space.
“Thank you to everyone at Zerto for this fantastic recognition,” said Keith Odom, SVP, presales & specialist engineering, AHEAD. “We saw tremendous growth in the past year focusing on Zerto as a strategic partner for migration and disaster recovery. Our team recognizes Zerto is a market leader in both areas, and together we have established programs to grow this segment of the business. We look forward to a bright future.”
