Increasing demand across the country has resulted in Veeam attracting more than 829 customers in New Zealand for Q3 2014.
In New Zealand, Veeam has seen a 66 per cent increase in total revenue bookings for 2014, and new licence bookings revenue grew by 65 per cent year-over-year (YoY).
In addition, the number of new ProPartners in New Zealand also grew by 117%.
Released as part of the company’s overall Q3 2014 results, the data centre solutions provider now boasts a total of 246 ProPartners in New Zealand, following new alliances and Veaam Cloud Provider partner deals.
During the quarter, VCP partner LabTech released a beta version of a new plug-in LabTech integration, while the company also added Westcon Group New Zealand as a new VCP rental aggregator, and formed an alliance with NEXTDC in Australia.
This third quarter marks the 27th consecutive quarter in which Veeam’s total bookings revenue has experienced double-digit percentage growth across the business.
“The phenomenal growth in this region shows that Veeam is on the right track in providing businesses with solutions that address the needs of the Always-On Business,” says Don Williams, vice president for APAC, Veeam Software.
“Businesses are no longer confined to regular nine-to-five working hours. IT in organisations are expected to make applications and data available to all stakeholders every minute of every day.
“We are greatly encouraged by our results this quarter and remain committed to being the provider of choice for businesses that seek to meet the demands of Availability for the Modern Data Center.”
Other key highlights across the Asia-Pacific region include the addition of 3,000 new customers each month, with Veeam acquiring approximately 10,000 new customers in Q3, with total paid customers now surpassing 121,500.
From an enterprise perspective, the company’s footprint continues to grow with 70 percent of the 2014 Fortune 500 list currently Veeam customers, while 45 percent of the 2014 Global 2000 are Veeam customers.
As a result, the number of enterprise customers grew 87 percent year-on-year, while revenue from enterprise customers grew 140 percent over that same period.
“IT has been forced to become strategic now that businesses require 24x7 availability for all applications and data,” adds Ratmir Timashev, CEO, Veeam.
“To deliver that level of availability, IT is transforming the modern data centre by bringing together virtualisation, the cloud, and storage technologies so they can provision services and devices faster, strengthen security and control, and reduce operational costs.
“Veeam’s continued growth illustrates this, and we are seeing steady demand across all geographies and verticals as businesses strive to deliver the application availability users demand.”
