By  Staff Writer Published  October 11, 2017

At GITEX Technology Week 2017, virtualisation specialist Veeam is on a mission to educate CIOs and IT managers about the need to re-think their IT strategies and service models. The company is encouraging IT managers to move away from legacy backup and recovery solutions as they virtualise their infrastructures and move to the cloud.

To this end, Veeam is showcasing products and services that will help forward-looking CIOs and IT managers to make this transition. "We are demonstrating the New Veeam Availability Suite v10 that bridges the ‘Availability Gap' and drives business continuity and agility to new levels," says Gregg Petersen, regional sales, vice president, MEA, Veeam Software.

The New Veeam Availability Suite v10 that offers a complete end-to-end availability and cross-cloud data management platform for enterprise customers by supporting any workloads (virtual, physical or cloud) on any infrastructure in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments (private, public, managed or SaaS).

Furthermore, Petersen believes the Middle East market holds plenty of potential for Veeam. "In terms of IT trends, data centre consolation and virtualisation are big trends here in the Middle East & Africa region and will have a big impact on the regional ICT industry over the next few years.

"Veeam is uniquely positioned to help customers transition to these technologies. There is still a skills shortage in the region that doesn't allow people to plan and then implement a successful Disaster Recovery (DR) strategy."
