Veeam Cloud Provider Program Continues 100+ Percent Growth

Click to Tweet: Veeam Cloud Provider Program Continues 100+ Percent Growth

Veeam® Software, innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, today announced that the Veeam Cloud Provider (VCP) program continues to grow revenue at a year-over-year rate of 100+ percent, even faster than the overall growth of the company. The VCP program offers flexible monthly and perpetual licensing to meet the needs of hosting, managed service and cloud service providers.

Growth of the program has been fueled by ongoing product development, such as the recent release of Veeam Backup & Replication™ v7, which introduced capabilities of particular interest to service providers, including:

  • Built-in WAN acceleration: up to 50x faster D2D2C (disk-to-disk-to-cloud) backup
  • GFS retention: configurable grandfather-father-son (GFS) retention policies for backup archival
  • Self-service recovery and a RESTful API: for easy integration with service provider portals
  • Enhanced support for VMware vCloud Director: full visibility of vCD infrastructure and seamless backup and recovery of vApps and virtual machines (VMs)
  • VirtualLab for Replicas: to streamline disaster recovery (DR) testing and put replicas to work (for training, troubleshooting, patch testing, etc.)
  • Pre-deployment analysis: to streamline onboarding of new clients

Veeam also recently introduced the Veeam Cloud Provider directory to connect service providers with Veeam’s more than 80,000 customers and 20,000 resellers around the world, many of which are looking to extend on-premise deployments of Veeam offsite. VCP service offerings include a place to store backups, host replicas and perform recoveries in the cloud.

“The success of our VCP program is a testament to the accelerating demand for cloud-based services and the need for hosting and managed service providers to safeguard their clients with Modern Data Protection,” said Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam. “Historically, the majority of our revenue from VCP licensing has been perpetual; however, we’re experiencing a strong increase in monthly rentals, so much so that rentals now account for 45 percent of our total VCP revenue. We’re meeting a critical need in the service provider industry and as a result, the VCP program now accounts for a notable percentage of our annual revenue.

“We view service providers as partners,” Timashev continued, “which is why we recently launched the VCP directory, which connects VCPs with customers and resellers looking for backup and disaster recovery in the cloud. We recently expanded the directory to include backup and disaster recovery-as-a-service, as well as hosted VMs protected by Veeam. Our partners’ success is critical to our success, and the expanded directory will help the entire ecosystem to grow.”

The Veeam Cloud Provider program currently has over 4,000 service provider participants worldwide. Monthly rental is available in more than 70 countries from more than 50 Veeam aggregators. Perpetual licenses, ideal for long-term client contracts, are also available from thousands of Veeam resellers worldwide. Veeam also provides dedicated VCP support resources in all major regions worldwide, including North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The VCP program enables service providers to go to market with maximum differentiation and margin opportunity. Service providers can earn more revenue by offering a larger range of data protection and management services, raise customer satisfaction with stronger data protection and faster response time when VMs or data needs to be recovered, and reduce costs by streamlining daily management tasks.

As the No. 1 web hosting company in Europe and third in the world (Source: Netcraft), OVH.com also has a growing cloud business. OVH.com chose Veeam to provide advanced backup, replication and recovery for its Virtual Private Server and Dedicated Cloud offerings. With the world’s largest datacenter (located in North America), OVH.com designs many of its own solutions, and that includes building its own physical servers. However, “we were not going to improvise building our own backup technology,” said Miroslaw Klaba, Director of R&D at OVH.com. “Veeam is already proven and fits perfectly with our cloud offerings. We tested several others and chose Veeam for its high reliability.”

“We found a solid partner in Veeam Software—the company understands virtualization and how cloud providers operate,” said Bennett Oprysa, CEO of BitCloud. “Because of Veeam we’re able to set ourselves apart from the competition. We are excited about the increased capabilities in Veeam Backup & Replication v7, and we know it will make our Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery solution even more competitive and appealing to clients.”

As one of the leading cloud and managed services providers in the U.S., mindSHIFT Technologies partners with Veeam to help fulfill the business continuity and disaster recovery needs of its customers. “Our partnership with Veeam has allowed us to provide best-in-class data recovery services to our customers’ virtual infrastructures, whether at the customer premise or on mindSHIFT’s hybrid cloud infrastructure,” said Dave Paris, CTO of mindSHIFT. “Additionally, we also leverage Veeam for complex moves of workloads across our datacenters, expediting the consolidation of our datacenter footprint with minimal customer impact.”

Cloud Expo Breaking News
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marc Jones, Vice President of Product Innovation for SoftLayer, will explain how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
Hybrid cloud refers to the federation of a public and private cloud environment for the purpose of extending the elastic and flexibility of compute, storage and network capabilities, in an on-demand, pay-as-you go basis. The hybrid approach allows a business to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness that a public cloud computing environment offers without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities. Hybrid cloud environments involve complex management challenges. First, organizations struggle to maintain control over the resources that lie outside of their managed IT scope. They also need greater infrastructure visibility to help reduce maintenance costs and ensure that their company data and resources are properly handled and secured.
Are you interested in accelerating innovation, simplifying deployments, reducing complexity, and lowering development costs? The cloud is changing the face of application development and deployment, with enterprise-grade infrastructure and platform services making it possible for you to build and rapidly scale enterprise applications. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Gene Eun, Sr. Director, Oracle Cloud at Oracle, will discuss the latest solutions and strategies for application developers and enterprise IT organizations to leverage Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) to build and deploy modern business applications in the cloud.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise), cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. At NuoDB we're involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO of NuoDB, Inc., will cover experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
