Cross-Hypervisor Replication

Zerto Virtual Replication introduces an industry first with support for Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere, which enables cross-hypervisor replication and recovery. With automatic conversion of the virtual machines (VMs) on the fly, users no longer have to match the hypervisor between and data centers. This allows utilization of the hypervisor of choice depending on workload, cost, performance and availability, and not be locked-in by technical limitations.

Zerto Virtual Replication enables organization to future-proof their IT strategy by not being tied into a specific hypervisor or storage vendor for BC/DR and workload mobility. The same license can be used, irrespective of the underlying hypervisor or storage technology, allowing companies to utilize different hypervisors and not lose any investment made in their BC/DR solution.

This game changing ability allows a user to consider utilizing multiple hypervisors in ways that simply weren’t possible before.

Benefits of Cross Hypervisor Replication

With support for replication between different hypervisors, Zerto allows any combination of VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisors, depending on the requirements of the workloads and data centers. Due to Microsoft licensing practices, Microsoft Hyper-V licenses are generally already owned by an organization and now can maximize the ROI across IT assets.

  •   One, simple and consistent solution to manage disaster recovery activities independent of storage and hypervisor
  •   Increase the utilization of already owned IT assets by leveraging Microsoft Hyper-V for a target site while utilizing VMware for production
  •   Simply migrate VMs from VMware vSphere to Microsoft Hyper-V then protect between Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisors for a complete migration and protection solution
  •   Replicate multiple Microsoft Hyper-V satellite offices into a centralized VMware data center


Zerto Virtual Replication now forms part of strategic investment for any organization, by not being locked-in to a specific hypervisor vendor. When a hypervisor licensing or next storage refresh is due, Zerto Virtual Replication provides the capability to replicate and protect from anything to anything giving freedom of choice, and the capability to pick the best vendor based on cost and SLA, not technical limitations.
