2018: The Year of the Always-On Cloud

Cloud computing was really born just over ten years ago and after a few stumbles and early course corrections, the pace of innovation is now accelerating dramatically.

Enterprises’ increasing reliance on the cloud to deliver the agility and scale their customers and partners demand now means that data protection and Availability are pivotal concerns. Any firm can have the best, AI-based customer intelligence platform in the world, but if it’s not available for days, there can be a real, tangible impact to the business.

But as the cloud computing landscape continues to rapidly evolve, it can be difficult to predict what the future holds. However, the Veeam team has broken out the crystal ball and here are four key ... Read more

Secondly, I am super excited about this week. I’ve been to Ignite many times, several while carrying a Microsoft business card, but to be here ... Read more

Hybrid cloud lays the groundwork for our digital future

Digital transformation is a topic that is not only dominating the headlines, but also dominating emerging IT strategies and, increasingly, the investments of nearly every company. In the words of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, “Over the next 10 years, we’ll reach a point where everything is digitized.” You’ve read and heard from Veeam many times about how multi-cloud strategies are emerging as a winning proposition to enable the agility and Availability organizations need to realize their digital transformation goals.

These ideas were on full display last week at VMworld in Las Vegas. Long a pioneer and leader in transformational technologies like virtualization and the Software Defined Data Center, VMware formally launched its partnership ... Read more

Veeam Ranked Among Top 100 Cloud Companies by Forbes, Two Years in a Row

My time here at Veeam can only be described with one word: ”Epic.” From the time I started in September, I’ve been blown away by the speed at which this organization operates.

One can never understand what “Veeam Speed” means unless you’ve lived it — and these last few months have seen our cloud business continue to accelerate forward. Our momentum is exciting, and our recent achievement within Forbes Cloud 100 is a powerful recognition as we move into the second half of 2017.
