MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–VeeamON— Veeam® Software, the leader in backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management™, unveiled a new initiative today to deliver unified solutions providing expanded options for customers: the “with Veeam” program. Veeam is partnering with premier enterprise storage vendors to provide customers with comprehensive secondary storage solutions that combine Veeam software with industry-leading storage and HCI infrastructure hardware and management stacks. Solutions have already been announced with ExaGrid and Nutanix.
Veeam has worked closely with its strategic technology alliance partners to provide flexible deployment options for customers that have continually led to tighter levels of integration. Veeam APIs enable our broad partner ecosystem to build complete solutions that are powered by the Veeam Availability Platform™, with some partners integrating both primary and secondary storage with Veeam’s market-leading, data-management stack. The “with Veeam” program builds on this strategy by providing broader and deeper integration points for partners to easily and rapidly deliver a secondary storage solution as a unified full-stack that is easy-to-procure, -size, -deploy and -manage, providing customers with options for their data-protection needs.
“Our strategy has always been to be open and agnostic by working with a broad ecosystem of partners to better serve our mutual customers’ needs,” said Ratmir Timashev, Co-Founder and EVP Sales & Marketing at Veeam. “With the announcement of our ‘with Veeam’ program, we are taking that strategy to new heights to help organizations achieve the levels of data protection, data retention, data availability and data management that their businesses demand. Nutanix announced Nutanix Mine with Veeam a couple of weeks ago, and ExaGrid announced ExaGrid Backup with Veeam in April. This is an easy way for partners to build a unified offering with Veeam and we expect to see additional solutions announced in the future.”
Depending on partners’ integration efforts and targeted customer segments, “with Veeam” unified solutions will provide a variety of formats and features that are aligned with the varying requirements of different market segments, including:
- Options for scale-up and scale-out, to address a broad variety of environment sizes, while providing a consistent set of recovery capabilities through Veeam Availability Platform
- Right-sized compute and storage that aligns with the retention, recovery and Availability goals, and that aligns with business units’ SLA expectations
- A single SKU that includes installed software and right-sized hardware; simple acquisition from infrastructure vendors’ price lists that many buyers and resellers already use; and single support points of contact for support
To deliver the flexibility of these choices, as well as the ever-present options of consuming Veeam software via traditional licenses or subscription, or through the company’s worldwide network of VCSP (Veeam Cloud Service provider) partners, some “with Veeam” solutions will be sold and serviced directly from an infrastructure partner. Others will be sourced by various distribution and/or global system integrators, depending on geography or partner network.

Veeam drives additional S3260s at city of Toronto
The city of Toronto
was an existing UCS shop and working together Veeam®
and Cisco provided an end-to-end CVD solution, positioned as
an appliance, with a Cisco UCS S3260 powered by Veeam in
an extremely competitive PoC process to replace the legacy data
protection vendor. What separated Veeam and Cisco from
the competition was the simplified management and feature rich
offering that allowed the city to improve their recoverability as
well as reduce the complexity in their environment.

Veeam is converting their subscription licenses to an instance licensing scheme. This does not affect perpetual licensing, but for the first time, Veeam will now allow customers to have both Perpetual and Instance Subscription licensing in the same centrally managed environment.
Veeam lists several products and workloads that the new instance licensing definitely applies to. For products, Veeam specifies Veeam Availability Suite, Veeam Backup and Replication, Veeam Backup Essentials, Veeam Agents for Microsoft Windows and Linux, and Veeam Availability for AWS while leaving open the possibility of it being used with other products too. Notably, Veeam is planning to move the following product to instance licensing sometime this year: Veeam Management Pack, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, Availability, Veeam Agents for IBM AIX and Oracle Solaris. However, instance licensing is only available if those products are running on Virtual Machines – VMware, Hyper-V & Nutanix AHV, Cloud Workloads – AWS EC2 and more, Physical Servers & Workstations – Microsoft Windows and Linux, or Enterprise Applications – Veeam Plug-in for Oracle RMAN & SAP HANA. Customers with existing subscription licenses will be converted to instance licensing when upgrading to update 4 or renewing their contract.
New customers must buy bundles of 10 licenses at a time (or 5 at a time for Backup Essentials). Veeam has a calculator to help determine how many licenses you need. Most Workloads with Enterprise Plus Edition require one license, which would be simple. However, both Enterprise and Standard require additional instances for some environments. For example, Standard Edition requires thirty licenses for ten server environments which works out to 3 licenses per server with that edition.
What benefits does this change bring to customers? It allows them to move workloads between environments without needing to buy additional licenses. Now, customers will be able to move a workload that was on a workstation to a VM and move the VM license along with it at no additional cost instead of needing to buy a new license for the new environment. Veeam is also adding support for having both Perpetual and Instance Subscription licensing in the same centrally managed environment. Veeam is also claiming to have bundled 24.7.365 Production Support for the entire term of your license at no extra cost into the new instance licensing scheme. Veeam also notes that they will not be charging additional fees for cloud workloads.

Veeam has bolstered its North American ProPartner program with new training, marketing and financial perks. The enhancements surface amid intensifying competition across the cloud backup, disaster recovery and data protection markets.
Veeam pointed to these partner program enhancements, among others:
- Veeam IQ: Formally called Veeam University, this is a partner-facing training platform. It features a new Learning Management System (LMS) for partner education.
- Marketing Investments: This includes a new Marketing Concierge service – a dedicated marketing consultant group available to collaborate with partners to build multi-touch campaigns that focus on digital marketing tactics.
- Accelerated Growth Rebates for Gold and Platinum Partners: Partners that overachieve on a quarterly or annual basis may receive additional accelerators and back-end rebates.
- New Partner Perks and Incentives: This program recognizes partners for completing particular tasks, such as co-selling with an alliance, taking a certification, completing a POC, or running a competitive campaign.
In a prepared statement, James Mundle, VP of worldwide channels at Veeam, said:
“Together with our partners, Veeam has experienced unprecedented growth since inception. As the adoption of cloud-based business models continues to grow, and programs become more complex, the constant is that we always keep the customer experience across all segments as our top priority, delivering the best products, solutions, and services in a way they can consume them better and more efficiently than any other technology company.”
Veeam: Funding, Growth, Competition
The partner program enhancements arrive one month after private equity firm Insight Venture Partners and other investors pumped $500 million into Veeam.
No doubt, Veeam has been in growth mode. The privately held company generates about $1 billion in annual sales, and has more than 325,000 customers worldwide. The company’s overall business model is channel-centric, with a heavy dependence on cloud services providers (CSPs) and MSPs, along with strategic alliances (Cisco, HP Enterprise, others) up in the enterprise.
Still, competition is intensifying in the data protection market. Well-funded names like Cohesity, Druva, and Rubrik are grabbing market share in cloud-centric data protection and storage markets. And Datto has momentum with MSPs in the SMB sector. Plus, private equity firms are seeking BDR companies to bolt onto their MSP-centric software platforms.
MSPs and SMB Data Protection
Competition is particularly fierce in the SMB data protection market. In addition to Datto, rivals like Axcient, StorageCraft and the Barracuda MSP business have a critical mass of partners.
Entrenched companies also are making talent and technology investments. Most notably, Commvault announced a new CEO yesterday after a 10-month search for a new leader.
Amid all those competitive moves, anecdotal evidence says Veeam is still growing. The big question is whether the company can maintain its growth rates — while incentivizing partners along the way.
It’s a safe bet Veeam will share more partner program milestones during the company’s VeeamOn 2019 conference in May.

BAAR, Switzerland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Veeam® Software, the leader in Backup solutions that enable Intelligent Data Management™, today announced major enhancements to its North American ProPartner program. As a 100 percent channel company and following the recent announcement of general availability for new cloud data management capabilities as part of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4, Veeam is making major investments in its partner ecosystem to reinforce its strong commitment to the success and profitability of its partners.
“Together with our partners, Veeam has experienced unprecedented growth since inception – enabled by innovative technology and delivered through the award-winning Veeam ProPartner program,” said James Mundle, Vice President of Worldwide Channels at Veeam. “As the adoption of cloud-based business models continues to grow, and programs become more complex, the constant is that we always keep the customer experience across all segments as our top priority, delivering the best products, solutions, and services in a way they can consume them better and more efficiently than any other technology company.”
Key enhancements to the Veeam Partner Program include:
- Veeam IQ: Veeam has launched a new comprehensive partner-facing training platform to streamline partner enablement. Formally known as Veeam University, this new Learning Management System (LMS) is an online resource that supports partner education, fostering increased efficiency and greater profitability. Now with multi-language support and increased learner engagement, partners can easily access demos, product and solution training, program and selling education, training courses, and preparation tools for Veeam certifications including Veeam Technical Sales Professional (VMTSP) and Veeam Sales Professional (VMSP). This modern and intuitive learning platform enables partners to move at their own pace, putting the partner in control of their progress and certification compliance.
- Additional and Significant Marketing Investments: Veeam is committing to increased marketing investments in both partner-facing marketing and support for Focus regional partners, National partners and Corporate Resellers. Veeam has launched a new Marketing Concierge service – a dedicated marketing consultant group available to collaborate with partners to build multi-touch campaigns that focus on digital marketing tactics. Working closely with eligible Veeam partners, a Virtual Marketing Manager (vMM) will guide the partner though the entire campaign process, designating effective campaign materials, customizing content, building social media initiatives, recommending best practices, building campaign components, and managing leads from the Veeam MarketReach platform (Veeam’s email campaign and lead tracking tool for partners) post-campaign. With this Platform, partners can create, execute and track their own Veeam campaigns, including banner creation, co-branding marketing materials, event-in-a-box projects, etc.
- Accelerated Growth Rebates for Gold and Platinum Partners: Veeam is now rewarding partners who not only make their assigned revenue targets, but those who overachieve on a quarterly or annual basis. Value incentive rebates now with accelerators as well as opportunities for additional back-end rebates present even more earning potential for partners.
- New Partner Perks and Incentives: Veeam Partner Perks rewards sales, marketing and technical roles at partner organizations. Veeam understands that a “closed deal” is the result of more than just a sales function. This program leverages the behaviors and actions of the partner with valuable rewards, whether it’s selling into the SMB space, co-selling with an alliance, taking a certification, completing a POC, or running a competitive campaign; Veeam recognizes every contributing role of the process.
“Our industry continues to evolve; we understand that we must too evolve our partner program to ensure we are providing all of the tools and offering the highest support to ensure our partners are successful and maximizing every opportunity,” continued Mundle. “When they are successful, we are all successful. The new investments, resources, programs and tools Veeam is putting in place will help our partners to achieve greater profitability and enable success across all business segments. With the strength of our partner program and momentum, we will continue our history of innovation and leadership in the backup and data management industry.”
