Chris Powers, VP and general manager of collaborative platform development at HPE Storage also added, “we’re delighted by the success that has been achieved at every stage of our ongoing partnership with Zerto.

Now, with Zerto 7.5 and its complete protection that is hybrid, intelligent, and continuous. This platform update is the latest example of the shared vision between HPE and Zerto for hybrid data protection.”
