“IDC’s Semiannual Software Tracker data indicates that Veeam significantly outpaced the total annual growth of the data protection and recovery software market,” said Andrew Smith, senior research analyst, Storage Software at IDC. “Traditional backup and data protection software purchases are slowly-but-surely shifting to accommodate a range of SaaS applications and cloud infrastructure deployments. By staying focused on the evolution of this market, Veeam has put itself in a unique position to capitalize on the growth of cost-effective solutions for backup and disaster recovery as a service, two key solutions driving purchases in this market.”
Veeam continues to expand its team of more than 3,600 employees around the world. Veeam recently opened a new research and development headquarters in Prague, Czech Republic where engineers will work on innovative data management, automation, and their ‘Hyper-Availability’ technologies. The majority of the 300 new positions will be specialized, high-tech roles and quality assurance positions within Veeam R&D teams.
