LONDON, UK – 24th MARCH 2022: Veeam® Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, has announced the winners of the Veeam ProPartner Awards for 2021. The awards are held annually to reward the outstanding success and the commitment of Veeam ProPartner Value-Added Resellers (VAR) and Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners, who took their customer support with their know-how and experience to the next level to establish Modern Data Protection in increasingly complex IT environments, so that the most diverse workload types, data, and applications are protected cost-effectively while keeping them available for all business purposes at all times.
Alex Walsh, Director of Channels & Alliances, UK & Ireland at Veeam, explained: “For the past two years, we have been navigating through the pandemic and its challenges and I am proud that, together with our local ProPartner network, we continued building a solid foundation for future success. We have supported our customers and end users with a combination of technology innovations and individualized services that enabled and optimized local business continuity and information availability plans while also improving the overall IT performance in terms of SLAs, RTOs and RPOs. Many organizations deployed Modern Data Protection strategies and best practices like the 3-2-1-1-0 backup rule that protect all business-critical data, whether it resides in physical, virtual, cloud, SaaS, or Kubernetes environments. Our UK&I ProPartner Award winners have delivered exceptional results in 2021, and I sincerely thank them for their loyalty and the greatly-valued, trusting collaboration.”
Pamela Napier, Manager of Cloud, UK & Ireland at Veeam, commented: “Our Value-Added Resellers and Veeam Cloud & Service Providers have worked extremely hard to help our customers and end users navigate their digital transformation and data protection challenges, that the pandemic heightened. The results they’ve been able to deliver have been incredible, and I thank them for providing their expertise, counsel, and collaboration during what has been a challenging time for everyone. This year’s ProPartner Award winners exemplify this by driving cloud services use cases to help end customers realise their data transformation goals sooner. This, alongside their loyalty and contributions to Veeam, is why we are honouring them with our highest recognition.”
