PHD Virtual Technologies, pioneer and innovator in virtual machine backup and recovery, achieved exceptional product bookings in the third quarter of 2011 and recorded its fifth consecutive quarter with year over year quarterly growth of 50% or higher.

The company continues to see strong growth worldwide with 60% of revenues coming from domestic customers and 40% from international customers.
During the quarter, the company saw great success with the introduction of PHD Virtual Monitor which offers a better, more complete solution for monitoring VMware and Citrix XenServer environments. New and existing customers demonstrated a strong bias towards acquiring PHD Virtual Backup and PHD Virtual Monitor together to enable easy, scalable, cost effective data protection and monitoring.
