#1 Global Leader in Data Resilience


Veeam’s ProPartners Gain Competitive Advantage with #1 Virtual Machine Backup Solution

COLUMBUS, Ohio, October 4, 2011 – Veeam Software, innovative provider of VMware data protection, disaster recovery and VMware management solutions for virtual datacenter environments, today announced that more than 1,000 cloud and service providers have joined the Veeam ProPartner Service Provider (PSP) program since it began 18 months ago.

"We′re thrilled with the overwhelming interest in our PSP program," said Mike Waguespack, Director of Emerging Market Development and Global Hosting for Veeam Software. "Cloud and service providers partner with Veeam for three main reasons: to gain a competitive advantage in the industry, protect all virtual machines (VMs) in the hosted environment with a single solution and increase revenue with additional services."

Gain a competitive advantage: Veeam Backup & Replication is the #1 VM backup solution in the industry. It helps cloud and service providers differentiate their offerings and deliver what their customers value most: data availability and protection. Veeam′s PSP program offers providers flexible licensing, support and rewards designed specifically for them.

Protect all VMs with a single solution: Veeam Backup & Replication enables cloud and service providers to quickly recover an entire VM or an individual object from any application or file system from an image-level backup. Since application and file-level recovery is available for any virtualized application and file system on any operating system, cloud and service providers can offer the fastest possible recovery on every platform their customers use. Later this year, Veeam Backup & Replication v6 will protect data in multi-hypervisor environments by supporting Windows Server Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server.

Increase revenue with additional services: By providing backup and replication in one solution, Veeam gives cloud and service providers the flexibility to meet or exceed their customers′ recovery time and recovery point objectives (RTOs and RPOs). Not only can providers create tiered SLAs and offer multiple levels of data protection, such as daily backups or hourly backups, they can also offer near-continuous data protection (near-CDP) with close to zero RTO and five-minute RPO through Veeam′s fast incremental replication. And with Veeam′s deduplication, they can reduce backup storage consumption by up to 80 percent.

"Veeam Backup & Replication helps us increase revenue and decrease operating costs," said Dan Timko, Director of Hosted Services for BlueWave Computing, LLC. "We′re increasing revenue through a service offering that shortens customers′ RTOs and RPOs. For example, we can replicate their VMs from our primary data center in Atlanta to a secondary data center in Phoenix, which is exactly what many of our financial services and health care customers need to meet government regulatory requirements regarding data recovery. We′re also decreasing operating costs with Veeam. Since the backup process is fast, we can back up more customer VMs in a shorter timeframe, and since Veeam offers deduplication, we can back up more customer VMs with fewer Veeam backup servers, which lowers our hardware and licensing costs."
