Baar, Switzerland – March 16, 2017: Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™, today announced the winners of the 2016 Veeam Impact Partner Awards™. These second annual awards recognize 21 Latin American ProPartners who have not only demonstrated success providing Veeam Availability solutions to their customers, but who have also provided first-class support, expert knowledge, and continued product education.
“Our ProPartner program is experiencing tremendous growth in LATAM,” said Vitaly Sukhovsky, Vice President, LATAM, at Veeam. “With more than 2,400 Veeam ProPartners in LATAM, we reported 63 percent year-over-year revenue growth across all partner levels for 2016. We believe this is due to both the requirement for Availability solutions to ensure digital transformation and our strengthened commitment to the success of our partners. Increasing our channel team by 40 percent in the past year is a clear indication of our mutual achievements. Veeam’s success depends on our partners’ success, so we’re excited to recognize and honor these Latin American partners with our highest achievement awards.”
As the demand for Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) intensifies, Veeam continues to see impressive growth in the Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) program. The (VCSP) Partner of the Year category was added to the 2016 Veeam Impact Partner Awards to demonstrate this growth and recognize the achievements of these partners.
“With 226 percent year-over-year revenue growth in our VCSP program in LATAM and more than 13,200 service and cloud providers worldwide, we are working closely with our VCSP partners to advance our presence in the cloud market,” said Paul Mattes, Vice President of the Global Cloud Group at Veeam. “To meet the increasing demands of customers and partners for cloud services, Veeam will define the BaaS and DRaaS markets by offering the best solutions to ensure availability for virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads in the hybrid cloud. The momentum of our cloud offerings, our continued penetration into the enterprise market, the strength of our alliances, and our upcoming new product releases have all laid a strong foundation for an exciting and successful 2017 in our partner program.”

“Each of the 2016 Veeam Impact Partner Award winners exemplifies an ideal Veeam partnership,” said Peter McKay, President and COO of Veeam. “Together with our entire partner ecosystem, Veeam continues to enable enterprises to meet 24.7.365 availability as they embark on their digital transformation journey.
