Veeam® Software, innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™, today announced that the company has been named a 2014 Gold Rising Star Award winner in Europe by the Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC). Recognized during the GTDC European Vendor Summit, the awards cite outstanding sales growth of corresponding companies through their GTDC member distributors. Each winning performance was honored from among hundreds of manufacturers and publishers who rely on GTDC members to support tech resellers and solution providers in the region.
Veeam was awarded a Gold “Rising Star” ranking in the €100 Million - €250 Million category. Gold, Silver and Bronze Rising Star Award winners were selected in five revenue categories based on sales growth over the past year, as tracked by the CONTEXT SalesWatch Distribution Panel.
“We are very proud to have won the gold ranking this year, our third consecutive year of being honored with the “Rising Star” award,” said Gilles Pommier, VP Channel EMEA at Veeam Software. “Veeam is 100 percent channel-engaged, so our own success depends on the success of our partners. Businesses now require 24/7 access and through our data center availability solutions, including Veeam Availability Suite v8 coming later this year, our partners are able to ensure their customers achieve the Always-On Business™ status.”
Rising Star Awards Methodology
To be eligible for a Rising Star award, vendors must have sold corresponding products through GTDC members for at least one year. Selections for Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in each revenue category are based on CONTEXT SalesWatch data from April 2013 – March 2014.
