Veeam Software, a backup solutions provider, has been awarded the 2020 Technology Alliances Go-To-Market Partner of the Year by Nutanix during a ceremony at Nutanix’s Global.NEXT Conference and Partner Xchange Digital Experience.
Veeam and Nutanix have extended their partnership over the past year by helping customers modernise their data center and data protection technologies. This included the delivery of applications and data running on Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV) with Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV. This offering has experienced 150% growth in product downloads year-over-year (YoY) for Q2’20.
As organisations modernise their on-premises IT strategy to include Nutanix AHV, Veeam delivers assurance of protection and recovery using the same Veeam technologies that simplify the rapid recovery of critical business applications and data.
“Our partnership with Nutanix is an ideal example of how customers and partners win every time we collaborate with our alliances to build innovative solutions,” said David Harvey, vice president of strategic alliances at Veeam. “We share a common goal with Nutanix that makes our partnership so successful: Reduce IT complexity and ensure data and application accessibility so enterprises can focus on supporting overall business growth. We are excited to receive this award as a testament to our strong partnership and achievements with Nutanix.”
In addition to Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV, Nutanix chose Veeam as its strategic, data protection design partner to help develop from the ground up a new, highly converged full-stack secondary storage solution that includes Veeam Backup & Replication as part of a turnkey solution – Nutanix Mine with Veeam.
Released in January, Nutanix Mine with Veeam simplifies the journey beyond backup and towards true Cloud Data Management. Sold by Nutanix, Nutanix Mine with Veeam can be deployed in minutes and simplifies the full lifecycle of data backup operations, including on-going management, scaling and troubleshooting. The offering combines highly-efficient storage with Veeam Backup and Replication, helping customers achieve comprehensive data protection for all their workloads — virtual, physical and private cloud — to meet increasing business demands for uptime and productivity.
“We’re thrilled to honor Veeam at the Nutanix .NEXT Partner Xchange this year for their continued success with our joint customers,” added Prasad Athawale, VP of business development at Nutanix. “Enterprises use our platform to reduce complexity within their private cloud environment, and Nutanix and Veeam have built on that simplicity. We’re pleased to have a partner like Veeam to help us deliver this experience to our customers.”
