In its fifth year at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK, Veeam Software is celebrating its first exhibiting at its own stand and the company is looking to draw regional attention to its suite of availability solutions.

“Veeam enables the always-on business by using our availability products, which were developed specifically for virtualisation, unlike our competititors that have come from a legacy backup environment,” says Greg Petersen, Regional Director, Middle East and SAARC.

Veeam’s suite incorporates Veeam Backup and Replication and Veeam Monitoring Tools, which include plug-ins for key MS applications, such as SQL Server, Active Directory and Exchange Server. The company sees many aspects to availability, from high-speed recovery to data loss avoidance. “When you’re virtualising more and more business-critical applications, you need to keep these applications running 24 by 7 by 365; you’ve got to keep them always on. Not only that. Things go wrong, so when things go wrong, how quickly can we recover? How quickly can we recover the data? How quickly can we get users back up and running? And this is why Veeam’s been so successful, with over 1,300 customers in the Middle East.”
