Veeam To Engage With Cloud Partners For Enterprise Push
Veeam will look at engaging with more with channel partners who have made their way into the cloud market as it aims to accelerate its business with enterprise-size clients.
During Pure Accelerate 2017, last month, in San Francisco, California, Pure Storage announced that the next version of Veeam-version 10- will be integrated with Pure Storage technology.
“Pure’s three “E’s” of effortless, efficient and evergreen cloud-era flash solutions, enable organizations of all sizes to accelerate performance, simplify management, reduce costs and get a higher return on their storage investments. And, when combined with Veeam’s Always-On capabilities, our joint customers can pair the high performance of Pure’s all-flash technology with very high levels of Veeam application Availability, while gaining additional IT operational efficiencies across the board,” said Andy Vandeveld, VP of Global Strategic Alliances in a blogpost.
This integration is planned to be available early next year and will provide businesses with the ability to leverage storage snapshots for significantly improved RPO and reduced infrastructure impact, delivering an even higher return on their IT investments.
“As we go from $600 million, to $800 million, to $1 billion, to $1.5 billion, a lot of that growth is going to come from the enterprise segment, so it’s easy to focus on a storage vendor that has that focus as well,” Vandeveld told Channelnomics.
“The [channel partners] that have developed cloud-based services are the ones that are going to help fuel our growth because that’s going to help, not only in the SMB space, but also [with] enterprises adopting cloud as [an increasingly large] part of their operating environment,” he said. “That’s an area where partners that have leaned into the cloud and started to develop services are going to be the ones that will be successful. That’s going to be an area for us where growth [will] come from,” he said.
