Singapore, April 3, 2012
Veeam Software, innovative provider of data protection, disaster recovery and management solutions for virtual data centre environments, today announced record growth for the Asia Pacific region last financial year. Veeam experienced substantial increases in sales throughout, with Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan taking the lead as the countries with the fastest uptake. Cumulatively, Veeam‟s presence in Asia has seen 2010 to 2011 Year on Year revenue increase by 294%. In 2012, YOY revenue is expected to increase again by more than 100%.
Key to accommodating this growth and the increase in demand for virtualization management technology, is Veeam‟s new Asian partners and distributors. As a 100% channel driven business, to better service its customers and partners, Veeam has been expanding operations by appointing strategic distributors across the region. Veeam has added Ingram Micro in both Singapore and India, and in Hong Kong, SIS and Quasicom. Additionally, Veeam‟s partner base has matured from 132 ProPartners at the beginning of 2011 to a current total over 300 across Asia.
"The key to Veeam‟s success worldwide has been our game changing technology. We continue to innovate at a rate that eludes the competition and because Veeam has been built from the ground up for virtualization, we are able to leverage it to the fullest," said Don Williams, Veeam Regional Sales Director, Asia Pacific and Japan.
"We have a world class "follow the sun‟ support function and we value talent highly. Veeam is always looking for talented people that want to participate in building a great company. In the last twelve months we‟ve grown the total staff working in the region from six to 14, with Singapore‟s team doubling. We hope to continue to add more people who are passionate about what we do," he continued.
Veeam‟s partners comment on their experiences across the region:
Edward Liu, Consultant with Singapore based Decillion said, "Veeam is able to provide reliable Backup and Replication that gives us a good compression ratio that enables us to minimise our growing storage archives."
Ben Che, Executive Director of Global Technology Integrator Ltd. said, "Veeam is specifically designed for the virtualized cloud environment. In a complex data centre environment, it meets the stringent RTO and RPO requirements of our customers. This is excellent software to enrich our full suite of cloud lifecycle solutions for enterprises."
Veeam‟s record growth and penetration in the Asian market is coupled with strong initiative to increase awareness and drive lead development for its partners. In 2012, Veeam has invested in the following events:
- VMware vForum
- VMware Virtualization Seminar Series (VSS)
- VMware Partner Exchange (PEX)
- Microsoft TechEd
For resellers, Veeam enables them to increase their virtualization depth which, as Senior Consultant Frankie Khoo from Espore said, "translates to more businesses for us!"
