Sydney, Australia: 1 March 2017
Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™, today announced the winners of the 2016 Veeam ProPartner Awards for the ANZ region. The annual award validates and celebrates the most outstanding channel partners across ANZ; those that have demonstrated success in providing Availability solutions to their customers, while providing first-class support, expert knowledge, and ongoing product education. This year, a new category was added to the list – Veeam Champion of the Year and out of the four finalists, two outstanding individuals were recognised.
“As a 100% channel company, our partners are key to Veeam’s business and we want to take the time to recognise and celebrate shared success,” said Amaury Dutilleul-Francoeur, Head of Channel and Cloud, ANZ at Veeam Software. “We have more than 2,300 Veeam ProPartners across Australia and New Zealand, and our program is strong, with 22% year-over-year revenue growth across all partner levels.”
The ANZ region reported an increase of 36% in Veeam Cloud and Service Providers (VCSP) transactions over the last financial year via more than 1,100 service and cloud providers resulting in a 66% growth in cloud revenue. Veeam is working closely with the channel community to build momentum and increase the number of VCSPs to offer availability solutions to a larger number of existing Veeam customers.
“As volumes of data generated and stored by businesses continue to grow and more organisations across the ANZ region rely on a hybrid cloud approach to secure data and provide services to their customers, it's our network of ProPartners that will continue to help Veeam maintain and deploy its vision of Availability for the Always-On Enterprise,” said Don Williams, Vice President, ANZ at Veeam Software.
“The momentum of our cloud offerings, our expanding footprint within the enterprise market, the strength of our ProPartner program along with the commitment from our alliance partners and, our upcoming new product releases will pave the way for an even more successful 2017,” continued Williams.
