Veeam signs up 1000th partner

Virtualisation specialist Veeam has reached 1000 partners in the UK as it continues to build its channel base looking to recruit more Microsoft resellers

Virtualisation specialist Veeam is celebrating signing up its 1000th reseller in the UK and has revealed it plans to keep recruiting.

The vendor has been building a channel over the last four years across Europe and has now reached around 10,000 partners across the continent.

Signing up Spherica Business Solutions took the vendor to the thousand in the UK mark and Gilles Pommier, EMEA channel director at Veeam, said that its next task was to work closer with those resellers that had opted to work with the vendor.

He also expected channel numbers to swell further as it brought on board more Microsoft partners now its products offered compatibility beyond just VMware.

"We had only VMware partners to deal with but with version 6 supporting Microsoft instead of just targeting pure VMware we will be partnering more with Microsoft resellers," he said.

He said that its partner numbers were growing by around 40% a year across Europe but its customer base was also expanding at a faster rate providing partners with decent levels of opportunities.
