By VARINDIA    2017-04-21



Veeam has announced record quarter, fuelled by explosive gains in Enterprise and Cloud revenues. During Q1’17, Veeam recorded a 33-per cent YoY increase in total bookings revenue, while Enterprise new licence bookings grew 17 per cent annually. Cloud revenue enabled by Veeam Cloud and Service Providers (VCSPs) grew 59 per cent YoY, helping enterprises transform their operations to deliver 24.7.365 availability that users demand in today’s digital world. Additionally, as a testimony of India’s market potential, the company’s total bookings revenue for Q1 2017 in India grew by 63% per cent year on year


“It’s no small feat for a company with more than $600 million in annual bookings to deliver 33% growth YoY, and I’m enormously proud of our entire team,” said Peter McKay, President & COO, Veeam. “Looking ahead, we expect continued growth for the remainder of this year, fuelled by new Veeam product releases, joint product offerings with our alliance partners, further share gains in Enterprise, and Veeam-powered cloud solutions.”


“Globally, organizations now recognize they need the 24.7.365 availability that only Veeam provides. We continue to expand our worldwide Enterprise sales teams to meet that demand, especially in North America and EMEA,” said McKay. “These additions will support our customers’ and partners’ strategic digital transformation initiatives.”
