Veeam strengthens presence in UAE market

Veeam Software, provider of innovative solutions and delivers availability for the Modern Data Center, has successfully increased its footprint across the United Arab Emirates in 2014 with more than 50 per cent increase in total bookings revenue and over 90 per cent increase in new customers at the end of the second quarter, compared with the same period last year.

The company made significant inroads in the region in 2014 pioneering its Always-On Business concept. This approach proved to be successful and resulted in major customer-wins, such as the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), the National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD) and ARGAS.

“We considered several solutions but only one offered the scalability, flexibility and capacity planning capabilities we need as a growing enterprise. Veeam saves us a lot of time and helps with business continuity,” said Galal Eltahan, Senior Manager, IT Operations, Information Technology, DWTC.

Veeam Software has seen double digit growth in its industry segment. “So far 2014 has been a great year for Veeam in the UAE,” said Gregg Petersen, Regional Director, Middle East and SAARC, Veeam Software. “We have made partnerships that are instrumental to strengthening our position, not only in the UAE but in the GCC, and we have seen the fruits of this labour. We currently have over 700 clients across the Middle East region and we are confident that this figure will increase.”

Veeam recently announced its results for Q2 2014 in the UAE, a 90 percent increase in new customers compared with the same period last year. Veeam also expanded its channel outreach by introducing a new programme, to be launched in the Middle East starting at the end of September 2014, aimed at educating and certifying partners and end-user engineers as Veeam Certified Engineers (VMCEs).
