Columbus, Ohio, March 15, 2011 – Veeam Software, innovative provider of VMware data protection, disaster recovery and VMware management solutions for virtual datacenter environments, has been named 2010 Partner of the Year by Lifeboat Distribution, an international specialty software distributor. This award is presented annually to the software vendor that contributed the most to Lifeboat’s overall business.
Dan Jamieson, Vice President and General Manager of Lifeboat Distribution, said he and his colleagues selected Veeam Software as Partner of the Year because of the strategic value its virtualization solutions bring to reseller partners, which in turn, positively impacts Lifeboat’s overall business. “We experienced a record year in revenue in 2010, up 52 percent over 2009, and Veeam Software helped played a role in this increase,” Jamieson said. “Because Veeam focuses specifically on virtualization management, the company has developed innovative tools that work alongside existing management systems to unlock the power of virtualization, reduce costs and minimize risks.”
