Datacentre software solution company, Veeam Software, has announced a growth in its partner and customer base across the A/NZ region.
The company issued a statement, which read that it has added 304 net new paying customers in Q1 in A/NZ, growing that base to a total of 5600 customers in the region. This accounts for more than 50 per cent of the company’s customers in the broader Asia-Pacific sphere.
In addition, it’s expanded the number of its ProPartners – it now stands at 1733 for the A/NZ region, emphasising its commitment to the channel. It also recently hosted its annual ProPartner Conference in the Hunter Valley in March, to celebrate the contributions and achievements of its local partners.
It also announced its Q1 2015 results, which includes a 22 per cent increase in total bookings revenue over the same period last year. Veeam CEO, Ratmir Timashev, attributed the success to the release of Veeam Availability Suite v8, which created a new category of IT solutions for the company.
“Initial customer adoption of Veeam Availability Suite v8 has exceeded all expectations. By the end of Q1, less than five months after the general release, close to 50 per cent of existing customers had already upgraded their licenses to v8.
“We expect that rapid adoption to continue because only Veeam can meet their requirements for solutions that deliver datacentre availability,” he said.
Timashev added Veeam plans to accelerate this momentum with additional new products, updates and partnerships throughout 2015, as it proceeds towards its goal of $US1 billion in annual revenue by 2018.
