Zerto

CEO: Ziv Kedem

Boston-based Startup Zerto focuses on disaster recovery for virtualized data centers with its Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) software, and it also does hypervisor-based replication and backup. It was founded by Ziv and Oded Kedem, two brothers who founded storage vendor Kashya and sold it to EMC in 2006 for $150 million.

Ziv Kedem told Forbes in November that Zerto is growing fast and expects to hit $100 million in revenue by 2016 or 2017, and it's also setting its sights on an IPO.

Zerto landed a $13 million Series C funding round in April led by Battery Ventures, Greylock IL and U.S. Venture Partners.
