Veeam launches programme for managed service and cloud providers

March 31, 2010 by · Comments Off on Veeam launches programme for managed service and cloud providers 

Web Hosting ToolsColumbus, Ohio – Veeam Software, innovative provider of data protection, disaster recovery and systems management solutions for VMware virtual datacenter environments, has launched a customised partner programme for service providers and cloud computing providers that specifically aligns to the way they do business. Veeam’s ProPartner Service Provider (PSP) program will help these providers create new revenue opportunities and provide their clients with additional service offerings. In addition, Veeam’s solutions will help PSP partners better protect and manage their VMware environments and reduce their infrastructure costs through management automation.

“Managing a multi-tenant VMware environment is not easy,” explained Rick Hoffman, Vice President of Channels and Alliances for Veeam. “Service providers and cloud computing providers must ensure all resources are efficiently used, even while demand is fluctuating. At the same time, they must meet service level agreements (SLAs) and keep costs low. Their requirements are very different from resellers and system integrators, which is why we developed this programme. It enables providers to use our products in ways that more closely match their needs and business models. That might include a new service offering, different SLA options or a monthly rental instead of traditional licensing agreement—whatever it takes to match their business objectives and serve their clients.” Read more
