Announcing: Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE

Posted by Mike Resseler

At Veeam, we believe the Modern Datacenter is based on virtualization. While we still see that some companies have a few remaining physical servers left, the majority are virtualized. However, a modern datacenter will still have certain physical devices. Most companies use physical workstations or laptops for their end-users to do their work and those devices have data on it that needs to be protected.

Because of that, we just announced a new product at our VeeamON conference today. Welcome Veeam Endpoint Backup Free!

Veeam Endpoint Backup Free is Veeam's new backup solution for Windows-based computers (desktops & laptops). It is a standalone product and is not part of Veeam Backup & Replication nor the Veeam Availability Suite.

Recent industry survey shows CommVault’s resellers are losing deals to Veeam most frequently in 2014

Posted by Maria Levkina

Disruption may be the norm in the IT business, but Piper Jaffray’s recent survey of storage and data protection vendors highlights a similar disruption.

Piper Jaffray’s survey collected feedback from distributors and resellers in North America and Europe. According to this quarterly report released to its clients recently, when a deal is lost 50% of CommVault resellers cited Veeam as the primary competitor they lose to most frequently in Q4 of 2014, and has been the largest competitive challenge for CommVault 5 out of the last 6 quarters.

“For the fourth consecutive quarter, CommVault resellers cited Veeam as the primary competitor they lose to most frequently,” the report said.
