Veeam Partnership with ConnectWise in ANZ puts Managed Service Providers in Control

Sydney, Australia: 9 June 2016Veeam Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise, today announces its extended partnership with ConnectWise, developer of the world’s leading remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform, LabTech.

Veeam and ConnectWise began their partnership with the Veeam Backup & Replication Plug-in for LabTech, which gives Managed Service Providers (MSPs) a centralized view of Veeam activities inside virtual environments via the LabTech Control Center. In 2015, Veeam and ConnectWise introduced Veeam Endpoint Backup for LabTech to the North American market, enabling MSPs to offer a complete solution with high-speed, low-cost remote backup, recovery and management of Windows-based endpoints through LabTech.

This new agreement between Veeam and ConnectWise extends the availability of Veeam Endpoint Backup for LabTech to Australia and New Zealand as well. Now local ANZ service providers can leverage Veeam’s Availability solutions with backup and recovery of VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs), Windows-based endpoints — and even some physical Windows-based servers — to deliver recovery time and point objectives (RTPO) of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data. 

“Mobile working is a major component of the Always-On Enterprise and we carry a huge amount of data in our laptops so the cost to business of losing one can be significant, yet endpoint protection is often overlooked,” said Peter Bender, Head of Channel and Alliances, ANZ at Veeam. “Veeam Endpoint Backup for LabTech was created to directly address this problem and gives MSPs the ability to offer a complete solution with high-speed, low-cost remote management and recovery of endpoints.

“The principle benefit of Veeam Endpoint Backup for LabTech is that it enables MSPs to provide a better service to their customers. It is extremely efficient for monitoring and managing remote customer sites and allows MSPs to be as proactive and efficient as possible in improving availability for their customers. There’s been great demand for the solution in the ANZ market, following its launch in North America last year,” added Bender.

Veeam Endpoint Backup for LabTech is designed for new and existing users of LabTech that want an endpoint Availability solution. A service provider can use Veeam products simultaneously to offer a complete solution based on Veeam that covers virtual servers (with Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup & Replication, and Veeam Backup & Replication Plug-in for LabTech) and Windows-based desktops, laptops and some physical servers (with Veeam Endpoint Backup for LabTech).

Gregg Lalle, Vice President of International Sales & Strategy at ConnectWise said, “We understand how competitive the MSP market is, and the ability for an MSP to provide as much attention to a customer’s endpoints, as it would the data center, will deliver true competitive advantage. That’s what Veeam Endpoint Backup for LabTech provides and we’re delighted it is now available in the ANZ region.”

Hayden Johnston, Operations Director at WYSCOM, added: “WYSCOM specialises in providing high quality managed services throughout Australia, and the integration of Veeam and LabTech allows us to deliver a greater technology capability to our customers. It enables us to exceed their demands and work smarter to provide a streamlined integrated management approach across our large customer base. Utilising industry-leading products like Veeam and LabTech is integral to WYSCOM’s success.”
