Under the agreement, resellers and consultants worldwide can more easily license the Veeam management suite, broadening Veeam's reach through the Lifeboat partner network.
"We are really excited about working with the Lifeboat team and supporting their partners," said Rick Hoffman, Veeam vice president, worldwide channels and alliances.
