Click to Tweet: Veeam Wins 5 2013 Community Choice Awards from the Windows IT Pro community
Veeam® Software, innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, announced today that it has earned 5 distinctions in Penton Media's Windows IT Pro magazine annual awards program.
Veeam was named the 2013 Community Choice Gold Award winner in three separate categories for Veeam Backup & Replication: Best Backup & Recovery Product, Best Cloud Computing Product or Service, and Best High Availability/Disaster Recovery Product. Veeam was named the Silver Award winner in the Best Free or Open-Source Tools category for Veeam Backup Free Edition, as well as the Silver Award Winner in the Best Vendor Tech Support category.
According to Windows IT Pro, the 2013 Community Choice Awards represent the cream of the crop in the various markets the magazine covers.
"Participation in our 2013 Community Choice awards was excellent,” said Jason Bovberg, senior editor at Penton. "Our Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Pro, and DevPro awards programs are unique in that the product-nomination process is open to readers. We don't just present a predefined list of products and services, thereby limiting scope. Instead, the community both nominates and votes for the best products of the year, ensuring a nice breadth of inclusion in the surveys. Our winners have earned a unique honor to stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards."
Among an array of market-leading features, Veeam Backup & Replication v7 introduces two disruptive innovations, Built-in WAN Acceleration and Backup from Storage Snapshots, taking Modern Data Protection™ to the next level. Developed by Veeam and optimized specifically for Veeam backups, Built-in WAN Acceleration copies data to offsite locations up to 50x faster than a regular file copy. It also eliminates the need to purchase and deploy a general purpose WAN acceleration appliance or acquire additional network bandwidth for offsite backups. Developed in partnership with HP, Backup from Storage Snapshots dramatically improves recovery point objectives (RPO) and greatly reduces stress on the virtual infrastructure. As a result, IT admins can make backups as often as they wish, even for I/O intensive virtual machines.
Veeam Backup & Replication v7 also introduces 7 additional market-leading features and more than 75 other new features/enhancements, including Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint, VMware vCloud Director Integration, Self-Service Recovery of VMs and Guest Files, and Native Tape Support.
Veeam Backup & Replication v7 is available now with North American pricing (U.S. dollars) starting at $750/socket for Standard Edition, $1,250/socket for Enterprise Edition and $1,999/socket for Enterprise Plus Edition. (In other regions, Veeam Backup & Replication v7 is available at local pricing.)
