Veeam Software Wins Gold and Bronze Awards in’s 2009 Products of the Year
Veeam Software, innovative provider of systems management tools for VMware virtual datacenter environments, won two major awards in’s 2009 Products of the Year competition. Veeam Backup & Replication won the Gold award in the backup and storage for virtualization category, and Veeam Business View won the Bronze award in the virtualization management category.

“We are very excited and truly honored by this recognition,” explained Ratmir Timashev, Veeam President and CEO. “Veeam Backup & Replication has been recognized in the industry as the leading data protection and disaster recovery solution for VMware environments because it was the first to introduce a number of innovations. This includes ‘2-in-1’ as backup and replication (near CDP) are combined in one product; instant file-level recovery for Windows and Linux from an image-level backup; and the first to fully support vSphere and vStorage. Our success has always been rooted in technical innovation and customer responsiveness. We seek out and rapidly act upon customer feedback. Our focus is to exceed customers’ expectations within weeks or months, while our competitors often take years. We are very glad to see the judges’ recognition of this customer-centric approach.”

Veeam Backup & Replication takes full advantage of VMware vSphere 4 thin-provisioned disks, enabling faster full backups and restores of virtual machines. It also gives VMware administrators the ability to leverage VMware vSphere 4 Changed-Block tracking to achieve more than 10 times an increase in incremental backup speed and near-CDP replication capability, which Veeam customers have reported as “insane backup speed.”

The judges of’s 2009 Products of the Year competition have agreed: “The Gold Award in the Backup and Storage category goes to a longtime leader in the virtualization backup marketplace: Veeam Software. By combining backup and replication in a single product, Veeam's technology enables rapid recovery of a VMware ESX or ESXi environment.” 

Veeam Business View, which received the Bronze award in the virtualization management category, is a free add-on that integrates with other Veeam products and allows enterprise customers and Managed Service and Cloud Providers to group, monitor, report and manage virtual machines based on business criteria, such as department, location, purpose, service-level agreement (SLA), etc., instead of just the VMware infrastructure location. Veeam Business View helps customers address the most critical challenges in virtualization management: resource allocation and optimization, VM sprawl and chargeback.  As the judges wrote:  “In today's climate, IT must constantly prove that its activities bring business value. Solutions such as Veeam Business View provide that data in a language that business leaders can understand.”
