VMworld, San Francisco, September 2, 2010 – Veeam Software, innovative provider of VMware data protection, disaster recovery and VMware management solutions for virtual datacenter environments, has become the first company to win four “Best of VMworld” awards at a single VMworld event. Veeam received Best of Show for Veeam Backup & Replication™ v5 and was the Gold award winner for New Technology with vPower™, the breakthrough technology behind v5. For the second consecutive year, the company was also a finalist in the Virtualization Management category and the Business Continuity and Data Protection category, and was the only company to repeat in those categories. Judges said Veeam Backup & Replication v5 was a “cut-and-dried winner” for Best of Show. They said it “addresses major problems that virtualization administrators have” and “its backup verification technology and ability to reach into applications set it apart.” “It is certainly an honor to become the first company in the history of VMworld to earn four awards, and we’re especially elated to win Best of Show and the Gold award in New Technology,” explained Ratmir Timashev, Veeam President and CEO. “These awards confirm what customers and analysts have been telling us for several months: that vPower is truly a game-changing technology that is causing them to re-think their approach to data protection and disaster recovery.” vPower leverages virtualization and Veeam innovation to overcome the limitations of traditional backup and provide fast, flexible and reliable recovery for disasters both large and small. The patent-pending vPower technology lets VMware administrators run a virtual machine in production or in an isolated virtual lab directly from a compressed and deduplicated backup file on regular production storage, thus enabling instant VM recovery, universal application-item recovery, automated recovery verification, and more. In addition to these accolades for vPower and Veeam Backup & Replication v5, two more Veeam products were recognized as finalists in their categories:
- Veeam ONE™ (in the Virtualization Management category) provides a single, comprehensive solution for VMware monitoring, capacity planning, change management and reporting and chargeback.
- Veeam Backup & Replication 4.1 (the only finalist in the Business Continuity and Data Protection category) combines data protection and disaster recovery in one easy-to-use solution to improve service levels and reduce costs.
The Best of VMworld 2010 awards, which recognize outstanding products on display at the show, are sponsored by SearchServerVirtualization.com and chosen by an independent team of judges consisting of experts and editors from Tech Target’s SearchServerVirtualization.com. Judging criteria includes innovation, performance, ease of integration, ease of use and manageability, functionality and value.
