Veeam to give away $200m in cloud services program
Every customer utilising Veeam for on-premises backup and recovery is now eligible for up to $1,000 in free cloud backup and DRaaS
Veeam Software has revealed a new initiative to give away up to $200m through an exclusive Veeam FREE Cloud Services program.
In partnership with Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP), every customer utilising Veeam for on-premises backup and recovery is now eligible for up to $1,000 in free cloud backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) from Veeam and its partners.
The aim to offer a simple and cost effective way for customers to try to extend their ‘availability' strategy into the cloud. The free Veeam Cloud Connect service will be delivered to customers by participating Veeam Cloud & Service Provider partners. By using a VCSP, customers can avoid the cost and complexity of building and maintaining an off-site infrastructure while meeting their business and regulatory requirements for off-site backup and disaster recovery.
"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 benfits 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, enabling them to establish cloud services businesses that generate growing monthly recurring revenue streams.
This limited time offer is available for all Veeam Availability Suite, Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Backup Essentials end-user customers with active Veeam maintenance contracts. The Veeam FREE Cloud Services program will initially launch in North America, with plans to expand into EMEA, LATAM and ANZ regions in the next few months.
