Veeam built a strong worldwide sales and channel organization and established itself as the technology and innovation leader in VMware data protection, disaster recovery and systems management during a year of rapid growth and continued success for the company.

“In 2008 we began to catch the attention of the customer and VAR community, and in 2009 we began to reap the benefits of this early visibility while accelerating our investments in R&D, sales, marketing and partner support,” said Ratmir Timashev, Veeam President and CEO. “The fact that we enjoyed this extraordinary growth during one of the worst economic climates in recent years is a strong testimony to the value of, and demand for, our products.”

Other highlights of Veeam’s progress in 2009 include:

  • Employees – Veeam increased its worldwide number of employees by 116 percent during 2009 to more than 200 employees worldwide, and during the year opened new offices in Europe and the Asia Pacific region.
  • Presidents’ Club – Veeam’s sales success in 2009 led to its first-ever sales incentive club, providing special recognition to sales teams exceeding 100 percent of quota.
  • Awards – Veeam was pleased to receive two awards in the SearchServerVirtualization.com “2009 Products of the Year” competition: a Gold award for Veeam Backup & Replication and a Bronze award for Veeam Business View. In addition, the Veeam Management Suite received the TechColumbus 2009 Innovation Award for Outstanding Product by a company with more than 50 employees.

Timashev said the company looks forward to even greater customer, partner, product and revenue growth in 2010. “Our product innovation will be matched by strength in market presence. We will be introducing the new concept of Virtualization-Powered Data Protection™ and new capabilities for virtual infrastructure management. Customers can reduce costs, mitigate risk, and fully realize the promise of virtualization with Veeam.”
