Progress does not support Zerto or any other third party Hypervisor based replication tool for Disaster Recovery. Virtualization technologies cannot safely backup a running database if there are no tools to talk to the database and quiesce the database and file system concurrently. 
Following techniques are recommended:
  1. Using PROBKUP online or
  2. For OS copies (which all 3rd party backup/replication products fall under) the use of the PROQUIET utility, available with an Enterprise database license, to quiesce the online database in order that database buffers are first synchronized to disk.
  3. OpenEdge Replication for replicated sites.
