From ticket scanners to Wi-Fi to the point-of sale system, Veeam keeps them available.

Veeam delivers the scalability, reliability and Cloud Data Management we didn’t have in the past.” — Bryce Hollweg, Director of IT at Vancouver Canucks

“Veeam is so fast and easy to use, giving us time to be innovative and provide direct, immediate value to the organization. If we hadn’t deployed Veeam, we’d have had to hire a full-time person to manage backup. When you combine that salary with money saved on third-party technical support services — because nothing was simple and easy with legacy backup — the total is nearly $200,000 each year. We monetized the IT team, and for the first time in Ducks Unlimited Canada’s history, IT is raising money directly for the mission.” — Raj Perumal, Chief Information Officer at Ducks Unlimited Canada

“We’re currently dedicating around three hours a week to email restores across our Office 365 environment. With Veeam we’re able to reduce that to around 30 minutes, which means that we can provide this service to the rest of the business much more quickly, to meet any pressing deadlines, such as for legal cases.” —  Ben Brooks, Head of IT at Everest Windows.
