Veeam appoints Ingram Micro as distributor to drive local channel growth

Sydney, Australia, November 4, 2010 – Veeam Software, innovative provider of VMware data protection, disaster recovery and VMware management solutions for virtual datacenter environments, is partnering with Ingram Micro in Australia to drive revenue for resellers. As a 100% channel-driven company, the partnership with Ingram Micro will increase reseller opportunities by offering joint solutions for customers that are looking to optimise their existing virtual environments to reduce administration overheads and mitigate potential risks. Don Williams, Veeam Software’s ANZ Country Manager says, “As virtualisation rapidly increases across the region, many resellers are looking for an easy management solution that will enable customers to fully realise the promise of virtualisation. This partnership with Ingram Micro will provide new sales opportunities for resellers by offering them access to technology that makes virtualisation more attractive for their customers." “Since Ingram Micro is also a distributor of Microsoft and VMware solutions, Veeam can offer resellers who focus on these core technologies more joint sales opportunities across new and existing customers; for example, up-sell opportunities for customers with large existing virtual infrastructures. We’re also aiming to make joint sales easier for partners through making VMware and Veeam licenses available on the same quote.” “We are very pleased to enter into this agreement with Veeam Software and offer Veeam\'s innovative products to our reseller partners," says David Lenz, Director, Enterprise Technology Group, Ingram Micro Australia. "Veeam’s systems management tools strongly complement our solutions portfolio and will enable our channel partners to proactively safeguard their clients’ investments in virtual infrastructures.” Ingram Micro Australia will now offer Veeam’s full line of virtualisation data protection and systems management solutions. The Veeam software suite is a set of industry-leading solutions for VMware backup and management, designed to provide significant cost savings, increase administrator productivity and mitigate daily management risks for virtual deployments of all sizes. The partnership with Ingram Micro takes Veeam’s partner network to more than 3,000 ProPartners worldwide.
