Veeam shown tremendous growth
Veeam, an Elite VMware Technology partner and a Microsoft partner, develops innovative products for virtual infrastructure management and data protection. With the beginning of this year Veeam has shown a tremendous growth in both the revenues and number of customers, they claim a 39% growth in bookings, and more than 63,000 customers by the end of the first quarter. We know Veeam seems to be everywhere. They spend a lot of energy in marketing. But besides marketing they even spend more time on their products and customers. It took Veeam six years to reach 50,000 customers, and less than six months they passed the 60,000. I call this progress. What else did they achieved in Q1?
