"During my eleven years leading VERITAS we spent a great deal of time thinking about and building products in the replication space. I believe that it has broad applicability as the basis for general purpose availability and migration in modern systems. Zerto has a very strong product offering in this area, and a roadmap with great vision," said Leslie.
