​Datacom plays key role as Zerto records 300 per cent trans-Tasman growth

“We’re enabling companies to accomplish goals in their cloud strategy that have not been possible before."

Disaster recovery and business continuity software provider Zerto is preparing for “ambitious expansion” across Australia and New Zealand, following a 300 per cent regional sales increase over the past year.

Citing the explosion of Cloud computing, and key strategic partnerships with local providers such as Datacom, the company’s growth during the past twelve months has been driven primarily by its trans-Tasman success, with the local team also tripling in size.

As such, the rapid growth forms the basis of the company’s next local goal - an “ambitious expansion strategy” for Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific during the next five years.

“Zerto has enjoyed tremendous growth in Australia and New Zealand over the past 12 months which has really pushed our success across the whole region,” says Andrew Martin, Director of Asia Pacific and Japan, Zerto.

“We’ve built an exceptional team of some of the most talented people in the market and are partnering with leading cloud service providers and resellers, and this is just the beginning.”

Martin says Zerto’s continued growth has led to the appointment of five new staff in Australia and New Zealand to support customers in the local market, with more to join the team in the next four months - the company plans to have a headcount of 25 across Asia Pacific by June.

Channel growth

In line with sales growth, Martin says Zerto has also expanded its local channel, signing 50 new partners and Cloud service providers in the region adding to the already blossoming relationships with Datacom, VMTech and Thomas Dureya.

Martin says the local expansion feeds into Zerto’s global channel network of 250 Cloud service providers and 900 resellers.

“We’re working with organisations of all sizes that are turning to the cloud to help them manage their ever-changing IT needs and stay flexible and agile in fast-moving business environments,” Martin adds.

“We’re enabling companies to accomplish goals in their Cloud strategy that have not been possible before.

“We do this through software that makes it easy for organisations to move their applications, workloads and data between locations, including to and from public Cloud or specialist Cloud providers.”

Martin says that one of Zerto’s key partners is New Zealand owned and operated IT services company Datacom, which uses Zerto implementations in a variety of their solutions across both sides of the Tasman.

“As well as offering a robust disaster recovery as a service tool, Zerto has been a key part of our Cloud transition and migration solutions,” adds Glenn Scown, Director of Datacom Systems Australia.

“Zerto remains a part of our national infrastructure as a service solution, and has helped Datacom continue to lead the market in innovative Cloud-first, service based, and customer focused solutions across the Australian and New Zealand markets.”

The local growth follows the announcement in January that Zerto secured a $US50 million Series E financing led by IVP, which brings the company’s total financing to over $US110 million.
