Veeam innovation continues

VP, Solutions Strategy


Published date: February 4, 2019

At our Velocity 2019 event last week, we celebrated four Veeam partners who developed some really great solutions that are powered by Veeam technologies. Our most heartfelt congratulations and thanks to each of these Veeam Innovation Award (VIA) recipients. If you haven’t seen them yet, please check out the short videos of each VIA partner and their solutions:

In the weeks leading up to Velocity, the general public had the opportunity to vote on a “Best of Show” among the four VIA awardees. The winner of Best of Show for Velocity 2019 is OffsiteDataSync! I had the chance to reach out to visit with Matt Chesterton, CEO of OffsiteDataSync, after the award was presented:


But wait, there’s more!

At Velocity, we celebrated Veeam partners who built great solutions to offer to customers. At VeeamON, we will be celebrating Veeam customers who are achieving great outcomes through the use of Veeam technologies (including partner services). Here are the details:

  • Customer solutions must include some level of significant deployment (which can be on-premises or cloud-based), but the nomination may come from the customer themselves or their service provider, Veeam partner, or Veeam point-of-contact (anyone directly involved in the deployment and ongoing operation).
  • Customer nominations will be accepted from February 1 through March 8. All complete submissions received by this date are eligible for review and could be selected as a VIA awardee.
  • Upon closure of the submission window, Veeam will leverage a diverse board of roughly 30 judges to determine four VIA winners, who will be notified approximately two weeks after submission closure. After notification, we’ll be sending a Veeam video team to interview the four winning organizations (and their partners where applicable).
  • And in May, we’ll open voting for the general public to vote among the four VIAs for a Best of Show at VeeamON 2019 in Miami, Florida on May 22.

Nominations for VIAs for customers are now OPEN. Nominate yourself or your customer for a Veeam Innovation Award. Good luck!
