Veeam, the Dominant Market Leader, Announces Record 2018 Results

Twelve years of organic growth places Veeam as No. 1 in the cloud
data management market and one of the largest private software companies
in the world

BAAR, Switzerland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#availabilitylt;/agt;–Veeam® Software, the leader in
Backup solutions that enable Intelligent Data Management™, today
announced results from fiscal year 2018, fresh off of a $500
million investment
from Insight
Venture Partners
and Canada Pension
Plan Investment Board
(CPPIB) in early January – one of the largest
investments in the history of storage software. Veeam delivered $963
million in total bookings – 16 percent growth year-over-year (YoY) and
its 12th consecutive year of organic double-digit bookings
growth, as it added 48,000 new customers in 2018, an average of 4,000
new customers each month. This strong customer momentum and bookings
growth builds on 2017 results
outpacing the industry, and validates the growing demand for Veeam
Intelligent Data Management solutions in businesses of all sizes across
the globe.

“Opportunities of data management, compliance and risk, data theft and
cybercrime, are expected to continue to present businesses with
challenges throughout 2019, and into the next decade. What we have seen
in 2018 is that no data is entirely secure. Customers are looking for an
approach to manage data that unlocks its use and potential to drive
business transformation but doesn’t lock their data into one vendor or
increase their risk exposure,” said Ratmir Timashev, co-founder and
Executive Vice President (EVP) of Sales & Marketing at Veeam.

Timashev added: “By strengthening our offering via our most powerful
partnerships with Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE), NetApp, Cisco, and
now Lenovo, Veeam has done just that. We are leading the industry by
empowering businesses to do more with their data backups, providing new
ways for organizations to generate value from their data, while solving
other business opportunities. Veeam has yet again achieved consistent
company growth and profitability in this transformative market of data
management in Hybrid-Cloud – and Veeam will continue to dominate.
Together, with our partners, customers and alliances, and with our
recent announcement of general availability for new cloud data
management capabilities as part of Veeam
Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4
, our most important product launch
in company history, we have solidified our position as the dominant
leader in Intelligent Data Management and one of the largest private
software companies in the world.”
