One of the key areas where Veeam is propelling businesses forward is through innovation in Availability solutions for data stored in the cloud. There is no better time to take advantage of the cloud for data protection than right NOW!
Veeam has recently announced a new global initiative to give away up to $200 million through an exclusive Veeam FREE Cloud Services program. This program was launched in North America in February 2017 and will be available in Australia and New Zealand on April 19.
With this new global program, Veeam and its Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners provide a simple and cost-effective way for customers to start using backup and disaster recovery in the cloud. Every customer using Veeam for on-premises backup and recovery will be eligible for up to $1,000 AUD in FREE cloud backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) from Veeam and its partners.
This commitment to invest in DRaaS adoption comes as demand of the VCSP program from enterprises of all sizes soars in 2017 on top of 79% year over year in cloud during 2016. DRaaS continues to gain momentum due to more affordable prices and enhanced functionality to meet Availability and compliance requirements.
“Organisations across the globe are increasingly adopting cloud platforms for IT and business solutions, and they need an Availability platform that is scalable, reliable, secure and adaptable enough to leverage multi-cloud infrastructures,” said Paul Mattes, vice president of Veeam’s global cloud group. “We, along with our partners, recognise this opportunity and are fully committing to major investments supporting our partners and end users, and further delivering on our cloud vision and strategy.”
In addition to helping customers embrace the benefits of DRaaS, the Veeam FREE Cloud Services program is designed to help traditional resellers expand in the midst of a cloud-based services market shift. Veeam is connecting resellers with VCSP partners, helping them establish cloud services businesses that generate growing monthly recurring revenue streams.
