Veeam solutions offer protection, better management of VMware

COLUMBUS, Ohio, February 4, 2009 Veeam Software, award-winning provider of systems management tools for VMware ESX Server environments, has expanded its dedicated federal sales team based in the Washington, DC area. The team, consisting of Federal Channel Account Manager Dan Smith, Inside Federal Sales Representative Adam Wilkins, and Systems Engineer Jason Soled, is well qualified to help federal government agencies and systems integrators benefit from a secure and well-managed virtual server infrastructure. Current Veeam Federal customers include the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Transportation/FAA, the USDA, US Army and Air Force, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the US Senate.

“VMware offers tremendous benefits to government agencies and defense organizations, but like any critical piece of IT infrastructure, it must be well managed to assure that these benefits are realized,” said George Sidoris, Veeam’s worldwide vice president of sales. “Veeam offers a full line of tools to manage and recover VMware, as well as products to monitor VMware using Microsoft System Center Operations Manager or HP Software Operations Manager.”

Veeam’s products allow the government to adopt new energy-saving and cost-effective virtualization technologies while maintaining high levels of security, auditing, and control in both civilian and Department of Defense environments. Veeam’s software products are available for purchase under the SEWP contract, and will soon be available on the GSA contract.

Capabilities available through Veeam Software include:

  • Backup and Recovery – advanced backup, replication and recovery of virtualized data, including fast file-level restore.
  • Reporting – capacity planning and usage reports allow administrators to understand and plan VMware deployments.
  • Monitoring VMware with Microsoft SCOM or HP Operations Manager - to provide enterprise-wide visibility including the VMware virtual environment.
  • Monitoring performance and capacity planning - alerting and trending to help VMware administrators ensure minimum downtime for virtual hosts and guests.
  • Configuration management - templates and management tools to ensure consistent virtual machine configuration and compliance with best practices.

“MicroTech has long partnered with Veeam. The value of Veeam\'s extensive VMware management product line has consistently set the industry standard," said Tony Jimenez, president and CEO of Veeam partner MicroTech. "This expansion of their Federal Sales Team will further enhance our presence and networking opportunities in the virtual systems management market. We look forward to continued success.”

Smith comes to Veeam from Wyle, where he was program manager for its Information Engineering Services group. Prior to Wyle, Smith joined Quest Software through its 2004 acquisition of Aelita Software, where he worked as a Sales Engineer and Federal Account Manager. With more than 14 years’ experience supporting federal agencies’ information technology needs, Smith is well positioned to build a strong channel and alliance network for the Veeam federal team.

Wilkins brings a unique blend of international business experience and expertise with federal, state, and local education customers to the Veeam federal team. Prior to joining Veeam Software, Wilkins spent four years with Aelita Software and Quest Software. Wilkins is ready to assist with sales inquiries, product demonstrations and business development activities in support of the federal team.
