BAAR, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Veeam® Software, the Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™ innovator, today announced the winners of the 2017 Veeam Impact Partner Awards™ for North America. These third annual awards recognize 9 North American Veeam ProPartners and Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners 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.
“For the past decade, the outstanding contributions of our partners and their success have played a central role in the technology innovation, leadership and evolution of Veeam,” said Peter McKay, President and Co-CEO of Veeam. “I congratulate the 2017 Veeam Impact Partner Award winners as they each exemplify an ideal Veeam partnership. Furthermore, I applaud our entire partner ecosystem for their commitment and loyalty to our joint customers and ensuring the availability of their applications and data in order to keep them operational and successful in a demanding digital environment. The continued collaboration with our partners is foundational to our global business growth objectives as we continue to our journey to a $1 billion software company. The momentum of our cloud offerings, our continued penetration into the enterprise market, the strength of our alliances, our upcoming new product releases, and the recent acquisition of N2WS have all laid a powerful base for an exciting and successful 2018 in our partner program.”
“Similar to our overall Veeam company growth, our ProPartner program is experiencing tremendous growth in North America,” said Kevin Rooney, Vice President of Channels, Americas, at Veeam. “With more than 12,000 Veeam ProPartners in North America, we reported 35 percent year-over-year total bookings growth across all partner levels for 2017. We believe this is due to both the requirement for Availability solutions as the demand for 24x7 access to data and applications anytime anywhere, with no unexpected data loss, and our continued commitment to the success of our partners. Over the past 12 months, we’ve made investments in the region for stronger resources, additional marketing, and the addition of new features and products – all to support our partners and contribute to our mutual and continued success. We’re excited to recognize and honor these North American partners with our highest achievement awards.”
