VMware PEX: Veeam Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™, today released highlights of its FY 2014 results, reporting total bookings revenue of $389 million, a 40 percent increase over the previous fiscal year.

The release of the new Veeam Availability Suite v8 helped fuel these record results by creating a new category of IT solutions: Availability for the Modern Data Center™. Veeam Availability Suite v8 introduces more than 200 new features and enhancements, including Veeam Cloud Connect, integration with NetApp and major enhancements in replication and disaster recovery. Veeam helps organizations become an Always-On Business™ by meeting recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data, through a fundamentally new kind of solution that delivers high-speed recovery, data loss avoidance, verified protection, leveraged data and complete visibility.
”The modern business operates 24/7 and downtime is not accepted – ever – so business leaders are looking for technology partners that can help them deliver the Always-On Business; Veeam’s success in 2014 clearly illustrates that we are delivering innovative availability solutions that solve real-life business challenges,” said Ratmir Timashev, CEO at Veeam. “Our release of Veeam Availability Suite v8 was even more successful than we had anticipated, with more than a third of our customers upgrading within the first 60 days. It’s a testament to the strong demand for solutions that can deliver data center availability. With close to eight million virtual machines worldwide ensured by Veeam availability solutions, we are transforming the modern data center by bringing together virtualization, cloud and storage technologies, and our continued growth illustrates the success of our vision and execution. 2014 was a great year, and we fully expect our momentum to continue, carrying us toward our goal of $1 billion in annual revenue by 2018.”
