BAAR, Switzerland: July 19, 2018:  Veeam Software, the leader in Intelligent Data Management for the Hyper-Available Enterprise, today announced results from Q2 2018, marking its 40th consecutive quarter of double-digit record bookings growth.

Our focus on enabling hyper-availability is unwavering, and customers are responding. We continue to gain marketshare from both traditional players and newcomers attempting to catch up to us and attain profitability, a benchmark Veeam achieved and maintained for more than a decade.”
