0 comments

Veeam Software has announced another record quarter, fueled by gains in enterprise and cloud revenues.
During the first quarter of 2017, Veeam recorded a 33% year on year increase in total bookings revenue while enterprise new license bookings grew 17% annually.
Cloud revenue enabled by Veeam Cloud and Service Providers (VCSPs) grew 59%, helping enterprises transform their operations to deliver 24.7.365 availability.
“It’s no small feat for a company with more than $600-million in annual bookings to deliver 33% growth year on year, and I’m enormously proud of our entire team,” says Peter McKay, president and chief operating officer at Veeam.
“Looking ahead, we expect continued growth for the remainder of this year, fueled by new Veeam product releases, joint product offerings with our Alliances partners, further share gains in enterprise, and Veeam-powered cloud solutions.
“Globally, organisations now recognize they need the 24.7.365 availability that only Veeam provides. We continue to expand our worldwide enterprise sales teams to meet that demand, especially in North America and EMEA,” says McKay. “These additions will support our customers’ and partners’ strategic digital transformation initiatives.”
Additional highlights from Q1 2017 include:
* DRaaS and BaaS adoption: The Veeam Cloud Business, which provides service providers with ready-made opportunities to offer Disaster Recover-as-a-Service (DRaaS) and Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS), reported 59% YoY revenue growth.
* Enterprise growth and momentum: At the end of Q1 2017, Veeam counted 74% of the Fortune 500 and 56 percent of the Global 2000 as customers. Enterprise new license bookings grew 17% annually.
* 242 000 customers worldwide: Veeam added close to 12 000 total paid customers in Q1 2017, keeping pace with the historical new customer acquisition average of approximately 4 000 per month.
* 13,9-million virtual machines (VMs) are protected with Veeam Availability solutions. More than 1-million of these VMs are protected via Veeam Cloud Service Providers (VCSPs).
* Partner expansion: Veeam’s 100 percent commitment to the channel continues to attract new resellers. There are now 47 000 Veeam ProPartners and 15 000 VCSPs globally.
* Expanded executive team: Jeff Giannetti joined Veeam as vice-president of North American sales from Cleversafe.
* Strengthened alliances: Veeam joined the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Complete program. The program adds Veeam solutions to HPE’s price list so that customers can purchase complete HPE and Veeam solutions directly from HPE and its resellers, providing a one-stop shop for the validated solution. Veeam also launched the only fully integrated Data Protection solution for Cisco HyperFlex, providing the first native snapshot capability for the hyper-converged infrastructure offering.
