VeeamON, Chicago, Il.: May 17, 2018:  Veeam Software, the leader in Intelligent Data Management for the Hyper‑Available Enterprise, today announced the winners of its inaugural Veeam Innovation Awards at VeeamON, the company’s fourth annual user and partner conference. The awards celebrate enterprise organizations, partners, and Veeam Cloud & Service Providers (VCSPs) who have leveraged the power of Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform - most often utilizing open APIs and orchestration - to deliver innovative solutions at scale, that drive business outcomes for enterprises across the globe.


Hyper-Availability is the new expectation for data in today’s enterprise. In the Hyper-Available Enterprise, data must move to a new state of intelligence, able to anticipate need and satisfy demand, and meet the expectations of the mobile, always-on world. Ensuring the Hyper-Availability of data requires an evolution in how data is managed from policy-driven to behavior-driven, and the open nature of Veeam’s vision for Intelligent Data Management enables partners to offer fully customizable, innovative solutions.


“The Veeam Innovation Awards celebrate organizations that are using the Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform in new and unique ways to drive significant business outcomes,” said Danny Allan, Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam. “These organizations have unlocked incremental business value and agility by accelerating innovation, improving operational efficiencies, and helping them manage the hyper-criticality, sprawl and growth of data at massive scale. We’re excited to see such innovation and creative thinking and can’t wait to see what they and other innovators do next as our platform continues to expand and evolve.”
