Exponential growth in applications and data, and advances in cloud and mobile technologies are all propelling enterprises to transform from organizations that simply use digital technology, to full-fledged digital organizations. IDC has predicted that digital transformation initiatives will more than double by 2020, and will act as a primary driver for IT spending worldwide.
“Digital transformation isn’t just a trend. It’s a do-or-die business reality to transform the customer experience and unlock new levels of enterprise productivity which is now at the top of the agenda for CIOs and IT decision-makers,” said Peter McKay, President and COO at Veeam. “Veeam is playing a key role in this transformation, as our strong Q3 results demonstrate. Without 24.7.365 Availability, all the advantages received by digital transformation are lost. Enterprises are rapidly embracing our Availability solutions and abandoning legacy technologies that cannot provide an always-on environment.”
Veeam has also appointed Paul Mattes, most recently General Manager of Cloud and Enterprise Sales, Americas with Microsoft, as its Vice President of Global Cloud Group. Enterprise adoption of cloud technologies continues to accelerate as businesses capitalize on the costs savings, flexibilty and scale that it offers. To further meet the demands of customers, Veeam recently introduced the next generation of comprehensive Availability: Veeam Availability Platform for the Hybrid Cloud. This solution enables businesses and enterprises of all sizes to ensure Availability for virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads in the Hybrid Cloud. Mattes will further develop Veeam’s rapidly growing presence in the Cloud market and support its position as the leading vendor of Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions for Cloud and Service Providers.
“A hybrid cloud infrastructure offers organizations the best of both on-premises and cloud, enabling IT to choose the best platform to meet the needs of each workload,” buy cipro us Mattes said. “Veeam recognizes, however, that these advantages are of little use if the hybrid cloud infrastructure is not Always-On. In today’s fast-paced environment, nothing less than 24.7.365 access to data is acceptable, and Veeam is enabling organizations to meet that challenge. Our goal is to define the BaaS and DRaaS markets by offering the best solutions our customers are requesting. With a 100 percent channel focused strategy, we’ll provide Veeam Cloud and Service Providers (VCSPs) and our channel partners with the technology platform to build and deliver those services to our joint customers.”
