Veeam’s award-winning ProPartners deliver solutions that Enable the Always-On Business™, helping Veeam climb to 100,000 customers.

April 17, 2014

Veeam® Software, innovative provider of Data Protection for the Modern Data Center™, has recognised the accomplishments of their top EMEA partners by announcing the winners of the Veeam ProPartner of the Year Awards.

The winners will be honored at Veeam’s 2013 EMEA Partner Awards ceremony, the company’s exclusive two-day event, held in Istanbul, Turkey, 15-16 May 2014. During this prestigious, invite-only event, Veeam and its top ProPartners will evolve new partnership strategies and discuss 2014 milestones at roundtable talks.

“Today’s businesses no longer have tolerance for downtime, IT failures or lack of business continuity,” said Gilles Pommier, EMEA Channel Vice President at Veeam Software. “Our most successful partners are those who recognise this and the evolution of the modern data center, while also understanding its impact on the always-on business. Our award-winning Veeam ProPartner Programme provides the tools partners need to become trusted advisors to their customers, gain exclusive access to resources that will drive license and service business, create new opportunities, increase profitability, and help close deals faster. Our partners’ success is our mission. We aren’t successful unless we’re making our partners successful. As we prepare to announce our 100,000th customer, we recognise that milestone is a result of our top partners, many of which we are recognising with these awards.”

Veeam’s EMEA ProPartner of the Year Award winners were selected in three categories: Best Growth, Best Performer, and Best Distributor. The Best Growth ProPartner of the Year showed the most dramatic increase in Veeam year-over-year sales. The Best Performer ProPartner of the Year generated the greatest revenue. The Distributor of the Year had the most success in regards to sales, acquisition of new Veeam ProPartners, and marketing activities.

As a Value Add Distributor Azlan looks forward to further develop the market together with Veeam by offering even more cross vendor solutions suited both for the SMB and the Enterprise market.
