Customers Using Competing Products Can Get 50% Discount When They Upgrade to Veeam Backup & Replication

Columbus, Ohio, April 6, 2009 — Veeam Software, award-winning provider of systems management tools for VMware virtual datacenter environments, today announced an aggressive limited-time promotion whereby customers using competing products for VMware ESX and ESXi backup, replication and recovery can replace these products with Veeam Backup & Replication at 50% off Veeam‘s usual suggested retail price. Customers must provide proof of purchase to qualify for this offer. Veeam reseller partners worldwide will honor this special promotional pricing through June 15, 2009.

"Disaster recovery is a top priority for me – I know how it can affect a business. If you‘re serious about backing up your virtual machines, you need to have faith in a product that works," said Nathan Johnson, Manager of IT Services, NAI Utah Commercial Real Estate. "I‘ve tried them all, and am most pleased with Veeam. Veeam Backup is definitely number one in this market.

"My previous vendor kept telling me they would be coming out with a future version that would solve my issues, but I got tired of waiting," Johnson added. "I needed something that works now."

Key features of Veeam Backup & Replication include:

  • 2-in-1: Backup and replication in a single product
  • Support for ESX, ESXi and the ESXi free edition
  • Fast file-level recovery from image-level backups for Windows and Linux
  • Reduced storage costs with data de-duplication
  • Windows VSS support: database-consistent backup and recovery

"Before Veeam Backup & Replication was introduced in 2008, there were not a lot of options for ESX backup and replication," said George Sidoris, Veeam vice president of Worldwide Sales. "With this special limited-time offer, we want to provide relief to customers who may have spent their budget on older products and are now dissatisfied with them."
