Veeam Software has suprassed 16 700 service provider partners as demand for Veeam-powered cloud offerings for data availability, protection and management grows.
Veeam has expanded its capabilities to physical environments as well as multi-cloud support for Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack, Amazon Web Services, IBM Cloud, and support for SaaS applications including NEW Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 1.5. As the demand for uninterrupted digital experiences continue, Veeam experiences steadfast momentum.
“Customers are adopting our multi-cloud solutions at record pace. It took six years for Veeam to clear $50-million in bookings for our cloud business. Today, we now report $54-million in three quarters,” says Peter McKay, co-CEO and president of Veeam. “This quarter, we surpassed the bookings in our cloud business, exceeding what we did in that business in all of 2016.
“With an increase of 72% year-over-year cloud bookings for Q3 and more than 1-million VMs now protected with Veeam-powered cloud services from our Veeam cloud and service provider partners, our momentum is clear — Veeam has now expanded its leadership position as the number one availability provider for any app, any data, on any cloud.
“As we persist on our high trajectory of growth and gain marketshare from legacy vendors, our commitment to partners and alliances is enabling us to scale to meet our goal of $1,5-billion in bookings revenue by 2020.”
Veeam is offering free licensing of new products to partners in the Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) program through the end of the year. Veeam is also offering Veeam Availability Console as a free product for VCSP partners, further delivering on its commitment to leverage service providers as a way to meet the demand for Availability in the cloud.
