My time here at Veeam can only be described with one word: ”Epic.” From the time I started in September, I’ve been blown away by the speed at which this organization operates.
One can never understand what “Veeam Speed” means unless you’ve lived it — and these last few months have seen our cloud business continue to accelerate forward. Our momentum is exciting, and our recent achievement within Forbes Cloud 100 is a powerful recognition as we move into the second half of 2017.
The Forbes Cloud 100 was introduced in 2016, and I am proud to say that Veeam made the list two years in a row. We were number 53 on the 2016 list, and leaped to number 27 this year! This recognition confirms that Veeam has fully embraced the multi-cloud environment and will continue to grow its solutions, offerings and partnerships to address a cloud-centric future.
As Byron Deeter, a top cloud investor and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners, so eloquently put it: “The founders and teams behind the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 companies are of another calibre, and we are beyond excited to celebrate the hard work and enormous value these companies are creating as they propel the trillion-dollar software industry forward. These companies are leading the cloud technology revolution!”
This year’s list was developed in conjunction with Bessemer Venture Partners, and winners were chosen based on four factors: estimated valuation, operating metrics, people & culture, and market leadership. Of the hundreds of nominees, Veeam was ultimately chosen by a panel of 100 judges, including CEOs of many leading public-cloud companies.
Alex Konrad, Forbes editor of the Cloud 100, added: “Our inaugural Cloud 100 list showed the tech and venture capital community just how many standout private cloud companies there are to watch, and this year’s list is no exception. Forbes has a keen eye for businesses, and combining that with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures’ deep knowledge of the cloud industry, any company’s inclusion on the Forbes 2017 Cloud 100 list is cause to celebrate.”
We celebrate this recognition with all the partners in our cloud ecosystem and promise to continue being an exceptional partner as we deliver world-class solutions providing Availability to, from and within the multi-cloud world.
