The world of IT swears by cloud. Yes, world’s leading provider of datacentre backup & recovery software, makes maximum use of cloud for addressing the burgeoning market around data protection and availability. This gets amply manifested as the company—enumerated in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant as a Leader rubbing shoulders with CommVault, Dell EMC, IBM and Veritas Technologies—strengthens its cloud business by engaging with more senior leaders and new innovations, and by undertaking initiatives to ensure that its partner ecosystem combing 14,300 global Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners and 45,000 resellers would help customers accelerate cloud adoption.
According to IDC, over the next three years, 67 percent of enterprise IT infrastructure and software will be focused on the Cloud. With information at the nucleus of any organization, Cloud based DRaaS will be essential to meet Availability and compliance requirements in the modern Cloud era
Interestingly, this year the company and its partners would invest up to $200 million through an exclusive offer that delivers free backup and DRaaS (Disaster recovery-as-a-Service) through its world-leading ecosystem of partners. In fact, Gartner estimates the DRaaS market will nearly triple within the next two years, hitting $3.4 billion by 2019.
In the meantime, Veeam has appointed Danny Allan as Vice President of Cloud Integration & Alliance Strategy. Veeam continues to deliver on its expansive, multi-cloud strategy through its Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and Agent-based solutions for private, managed, public and hybrid cloud infrastructures. “The broad and consistent focus on business agility and the cloud for success in today’s digital economy sets Veeam and its partners for an unmatched opportunity,” said Allan. “While Veeam has an easy to use and reliable Availability software platform, it also has an incredibly high quality, experienced and passionate team. I have consistently been impressed by both the immediate Veeam team, as well as the VCSPs and customers who are members of that extended team”, added he.
“We’re at an inflection point in the industry where enterprises who have not adopted a DRaaS strategy will suffer business consequences – higher TCO, slower operations, and lost competitive advantage. It’s now a matter of ‘when’ not ‘if’ enterprises will move to adopt,” said Peter McKay, President & COO of Veeam. “We’ve more than 230,000 customers that rely on Veeam to deliver data and application availability, and many of these want to embrace the opportunity that Cloud presents, which is why Veeam is delivering solutions for private, managed, public and hybrid cloud infrastructures. We’re fully committed to major investments supporting our partners and end-users moving to the cloud”, explained McKay.
Paul Mattes Vice President, Global Cloud Group, Veeam, said, “As more enterprises transition workloads to Cloud platforms while at the same time adopting SaaS and Cloud-native business solutions, Veeam is leading the way with investments and software that help them realize the value of the cloud now.”
