Veeam simplifies virtual infrastructure
Virtual infrastructure solutions maker showcases latest products
Virtual infrastructure management and data protection solutions maker Veeam has returned to GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK showcasing its latest product releases.
The company, which is exhibiting together with distribution partner Aptec Ingram Micro, says it recently launched Veeam Backup and Replication version 7.0 for Enterprise and SMB markets.
According to the company, Veeam Backup Essentials is especially packaged and priced for small businesses (fewer than 250 employees), with a minimum saving of 33%.
Gregg Petersen, Regional Sales Manager for Middle East and SAARC at Veeam, says the company’s main focus in 2013 continues to be growing its customer base in the data backup, replication and virtualisation space in the Middle East region. “We see huge potential in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and the remaining GCC countries where we continue to grow our partner network and customer install base. Our product offerings target enterprises and SMBs, across multiple sectors such as governments, oil and gas, financials and telecoms sector,” he says. “Channel initiatives will continue to be aggressive with regards to partner recruitment and incentives. Veeam is a 100% channel-driven company.”
Petersen says GITEX is a great platform to present and promote the company’s solutions to the Middle East market. “The last year has been amazing for the Veeam channel with so many of our partners now able to do end-to-end sales from lead qualification to proof of concepts and finally to closure. We will continue to drive this within the channel.
He adds that the company is using GITEX to bring on new partners that have traditionally sold legacy backup and management tools.
Through this event we aim to grow our market share in the region, strengthen our brand positioning and identify new projects and trends in the technology market,” he says.
