BAAR, Switzerland – July 19, 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veeam® Software, the leader in Intelligent Data Management for the Hyper-Available Enterprise™, today announced results from Q2 2018, marking its 40th consecutive quarter of double-digit record bookings growth. Veeam delivered 20 percent growth year-over-year (YoY) in total bookings in Q2 2018, and kept pace with its average of more than 4,000 new customers each month. Today, Veeam has more than 307,000 customers worldwide.

“According to IDC, Veeam is the leader in both momentum and company performance in the data protection and recovery software market[i], surpassing and outpacing legacy vendors that cannot meet customer demands for hyper-availability,” said Peter McKay, Co-CEO and President of Veeam. “Veeam has attained this leadership position thanks to our strong relationships with our channel partners, strategic alliances, expertise in understanding customers’ needs and demands, and then addressing them with innovative, powerful and easy-to-use solutions.

“It’s an exciting time at Veeam as we enter the second half of the year,” McKay continued. “We have invested heavily in go-to-market strategies, customer enablement, employees and processes. We are pushing further into the enterprise, all while continuing to strengthen our commitment to our core market segments. Our focus on enabling hyper-availability is unwavering, and customers are responding. We continue to gain marketshare from both traditional players and newcomers attempting to catch up to us and attain profitability, a benchmark Veeam achieved and maintained for more than a decade.”
