Veeam Announces 2016 Veeam Impact Partner Award Winners
The North America Veeam ProPartner Program recognizes 14 Veeam partners who have demonstrated outstanding performance
Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™, today announced the winners of the 2016 Veeam Impact Partner Awards™ at Veeam’s 2016 North American sales kickoff in Orlando, Fla. These second annual awards recognize 14 North American ProPartners who have not only demonstrated success providing Veeam Availability solutions to their customers, but who have also provided first-class support, expert knowledge, and continued product education.
“Veeam’s success depends on our partners’ success, so we’re excited to recognize and honor these North American partners with our highest achievement awards,” said Kevin Rooney, Vice President of North American Channel Sales at Veeam. “It was a tough choice, as we have more than 43,000 Veeam ProPartners worldwide, and our program is strong, with 27 percent year-over-year revenue growth across all partner levels. The number of partner reps selling Veeam Availability solutions is higher than ever, and we don’t think it’s a coincidence that partner certifications have also grown by double digits – more highly trained partners are able to sell more Availability solutions. These winners have made Veeam a key strategic component of their business model, and have driven our success.”
As the demand for Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) intensifies, Veeam continues to see impressive growth in the Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) program. Two categories were added to the 2016 Veeam Impact Partner Awards to demonstrate this growth and recognize the achievements of these partners.
“With 104 percent year-over-year revenue growth in our VCSP program and more than 13,200 service and cloud providers worldwide, we are working closely with our VCSP partners to advance our presence in the cloud market,” said Matt Kalmenson, Vice President of North American Cloud & Service Provider Sales, at Veeam. “To meet the increasing demands of customers and partners for cloud services, Veeam will define the BaaS and DRaaS markets by offering the best solutions to ensure availability for virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads in the hybrid cloud. The momentum of our cloud offerings, our continued penetration into the enterprise market, the strength of our alliances, and our upcoming new product releases have all laid a strong foundation for an exciting and successful 2017 in our partner program.”
