The Managing Zerto: Setup, Protection, and Recovery course prepares beginner to intermediate Zerto users to deploy, configure, and manage the solution in VMware vSphere® environments. Ideal for hands-on practitioners, the training focuses on Zerto’s core concepts and components, including the major recovery operations such as failovers, tests, and restores. Hands-on labs are included to give learners firsthand experience with setup and protection.


  • Zerto customers
  • Zerto partners


No prior Zerto experience is required. The class assumes familiarity with VMware vSphere® and virtualization technologies.
