Global hosting and cloud services provider, Leaseweb, has extended the integration of Veeam-powered solutions with Leaseweb Cloud Services to its global entities. The Veeam Backup services are now available in several Leaseweb locations across the globe. These locations include Amsterdam, London, and Frankfurt, while Washington, D.C. will be available before the year-end.
Leaseweb learned that its customers wanted to extend deployment of these Veeam Backup services into global offices. To ensure both a close proximity to their customers while also maintaining full controls of the data. Next to that, Leaseweb’s clients seeking to grow internationally were asking for availability in additional strategic markets. The expansion of the Veeam partnership means that the service is now more widely available across Leaseweb’s network of entities. Leaseweb has additional locations planned for 2021.
This announcement comes on the heels of the recent market introduction of Leaseweb Cloud Connect. This solution would allow users to “seamlessly” connect Leaseweb’s hosted infrastructure to their public cloud or hyperscaler environment, enabling the sharing of data and applications between different environments.
“One current market trend is the expansion of the ‘as-a-service’ model. This is due to companies increasingly moving towards cloud solutions – be it private, public, or hybrid-or-multi cloud,” said Gonzalo de la Rocha, product manager at Leaseweb Global. “The current global situation is a challenge for many companies. Most are feeling the need to both become more efficient while taking on the extra project of moving workloads to cloud models. At the same time, this large amount of data being moved to the cloud requires a leading technology to be properly managed and protected in terms of security and resiliency. Veeam allows us to offer the resiliency and control our customers need, available with no entry fees and under competitive OPEX models.”

As a data center backup and recovery solutions vendor, Veeam is a 100% channel-focused business.
“This expansion of our Leaseweb partnership into new territories is taking place at a time when organizations need to guarantee the protection and management of their data more than ever before,” said Bert van Meel, senior territory manager, Cloud, Benelux, Veeam. “Despite the circumstances, companies are continuing their digital transformation initiatives and have experienced the criticality of deploying cloud services – which includes data protection through reliable and expedient backup services. We are pleased to partner with an organization so committed to their customers’ success.”
