CAPE TOWN, SA – June 09, 2017 — / — Neutral cloud provider, Routed, has partnered with Veeam Software, the solutions provider that delivers Availability for the Always-On Enterprise. Routed recently launched its vendor neutral cloud platform. The partnership with Veeam certifies Routed as a Veeam Cloud and Service Provider (VCSP).

Andrew Cruise, managing director, Routed, says that the company will focus on Veaam’s Cloud Connect solution: “We will be offering Cloud Connect Backup, an offsite copy of local backups and Cloud Connect Replication, a DR solution.”

He says that DRaaS is starting to gain momentum locally. Gartner estimates that the DRaaS market will nearly triple within the next two years, to a revenue point of $3.4 billion by 2019. Routed’s partnership with Veeam will ensure that the company is well placed to offer managed service providers, as well as enterprise players, an integrated cloud platform, addressing all cloud back-up and recovery solutions, as well as DR.

Cruise says that as cloud adoption grows it is imperative that enterprises understand the importance of the platform used and approach to overall infrastructure. According to the IDC, by 2018, 60% of enterprise IT workloads will be off premise. This exciting stage, referred to as Cloud 2.0, will place pressure on enterprises to ensure they are adequately set-up for what cloud can do now, and more importantly, into the future.

“Routed’s VCSP accreditation assists customers in understanding that our platform approach is built using only best of breed technologies. With an ecosystem of more than 14,300 global VCSP partners and 45,000 resellers, we are secure in the knowledge that Veeam is strengthening, innovating and building a strong cloud business,” says Cruise.

“Veeam operates on a channel-based business model and we recognise that the success of the VCSP program contributes to the company’s mission. We’re seeing a strong growth in our VCSP program as partners and customers seek more comprehensive cloud-based DRaaS solutions. However, the 2017 Veeam Availability Report found that downtime is costing enterprises R270-million per year in lost revenue. Despite the clear benefits, not enough companies are noting the warning that a more robust cloud DRaaS strategy needs to be put in place,” says Claude Schuck, regional manager for Africa at Veeam.
