The 2016 Veeam Availability Report, gathering insight from 1,140 senior IT decision makers (ITDMs) across 24 countries, clearly shows that the needs of the Always-On Enterprise™ are not being met, and that enterprises need to make availability a strategic priority or risk up to $16 million each year in lost revenue.

Key Findings compared to 2014 results:

  • Increase in unplanned downtime:
    • 1.4 to 1.9 hours for mission-critical applications
    • 4.0 to 5.8 hours for non-mission-critical applications
  • The average recovery time objective (RTO) for mission-critical applications is 3.0 hours vs service level agreements (SLAs) requiring 1.6 hours. Similarly, current recovery point objective (RPO) is 4.2 hours, but should ideally be 2.9 hours.
  • Annual downtime cost has risen a staggering $6M within a 12 month period

IT must deliver Availability 24x7x365 for a demanding enterprise ecosystem. Business requirements today are simple. Yet, simple is not always easy, especially when an organization is not highly-virtualized.

Through extensive research conducted by ESG, the analysis presented in this report will help organizations determine relative costs and benefits when comparing Veeam® Availability Suite to legacy alternatives.

Key findings from the analysis:

  • Moving from typical legacy solutions to Veeam within a virtualized enterprise environment yields an estimated 247% ROI over a 3-year period, with a 15-month payback period.
  • Total cost of ownership (TCO) is reduced by more than $650,000, while adding business value, chiefly in the form of increased asset availability, in the $2 million range.

Despite the fact that all of the leading data-protection vendors now consider Veeam to be a primary competitor (and threat), the company continues to rack up impressive growth stats.

Based on our revenue estimates, Veeam appears to be on track to meet its goal of $1bn in revenue in 2018. However, although it's the top gun in VMware data protection, meeting that revenue goal will depend in large part on whether Veeam can maintain momentum in the Hyper-V backup/recovery market, as well as its ability to gain momentum in cloud-based data protection.

This availability gap is costing organizations more than $2 million a year in lost revenue, lost productivity, lost opportunities and irretrievably lost data—because backups failed to recover.

This infographic is based on the global 2014 Veeam Data Center Availability Survey of 760 CIOs at 1,000+-employee companies, by independent research agency Vanson Bourne.

Veeam continues to add over 4,000 new customers per month with over 10 million protected VMs and 34,000 channel partners to-date.

  • The company has been quick to innovate in the VM data protection market by taking advantage of hypervisor-based technologies and tightly integrating with virtualization platforms.
  • Veeam courted VM administrators rather than storage professionals, thus avoiding the rip-and-replace conundrum, since VM administrators often installed Veeam's software alongside existing backup software rather than replacing the incumbent vendor.
  • Veeam has an extensive reseller roster of more than 34,000 channel partners.
