Veeam is looking to expand its channel, bringing on board more with Microsoft skills, after it launched support for Hyper-V in its latest product.

The virtualisation specialist has been enhancing its channel programme, with the launch of a platinum level and a registered level for those coming in at the entry-level.

With Veeam ONE version six, its flagship product, now extending support for Microsoft as well as VMware the vendor is hoping more partners will register that come from that side of the market.

Ian Wells, director of Northern Europe at Veeam, said that it expected to expand its channel fairly significantly this year taking the current number of 500 registered partners up to around the 800 mark.

"We need to get from the Microsoft channel so we have partners that can implement and pick up on the consultancy opportunities," he said.

He added that as well as making the recent enhancements to the channel programme, which was rolled out at the start of this month, the vendor was also recruiting to support channel growth and would double its headcount to deal with the channel this year.

"The intention is to double the business this year and we need the channel to help us do that," he added.
