Mature datacentre footprint still has room for innovation: Veeam

Networking vendor sees datacentre boom also benefitting the channel.

Even as the local datacentre market reaches saturation point, Veeam is seeing continued investment in the sector.

Technical director, Charles Clarke, admits there are many datacentres not just in Australia, but all over Asia-Pacific that serve A/NZ as well.

“Even so, there are ongoing investments and innovations being made in hardware, power and cooling,” he said.

One recent investment Clarke has been keeping an eye on is Microsoft’s local deployment of Azure, which resulted in several datacentre locations opening up in Australia.

“To me that signifies a significant investment from the technology giant,” he said.

“As an alliance partner, we’re excited about what that means for us and for our customers.”

An economic boost

Beyond the investment by Microsoft into datacentres, Clarke has been following the rise of Backup- and Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service in A/NZ.

“We’re seeing Cloud providers leverage those datacentre investments as a springboard to potentially draw customers into those environments, allowing them to move from CapEx [capital expenditure] to OpEx [operational expenditure],” he said.

While innovation at datacentres is continually made from a technical perspective, Clarke said it also taking place from an economic one, particularly in terms of how the channel and Cloud providers are helping their customers maximise their investment.

“Partners and resellers are already leveraging datacentres to on-sell services like backup and DR, helping customers flesh out their business continuity through datacentre infrastructure,” he said.
