Ingram Micro NZ signs on as Veeam distributor

18 Apr 16

Ingram Micro New Zealand has signed a distribution deal with Veeam Software, with the distie saying the deal allows resellers to market to ‘a large portion’ of businesses across New Zealand.

The deal will see Ingram Micro distributing the full range of Veeam products and services, from today, with Gary Bigwood noting the vendor’s offerings provide ‘availability for the always-on enterprise’’ for businesses large and small.

“Veeam’s award winning solutions allows our resellers to market to a large portion of businesses in New Zealand,” Bigwood says.

Bigwood says the company is excited about the opportunities its appointment as a Veeam distributor offers.

“Veeam represents state-of-the-art availability solutions and virtualisation management software for VMware and Hyper-V virtual environments and we are delighted with the opportunity to work with them,” Bigwood says.

He says Veeam is an ‘ideal’ fit for Ingram Micro’s portfolio.

Peter Bender, Veeam ANZ head of channel and alliances, says more than 183,000 customers, 37,000 partners and 10.6 million VMs worldwide are protected by Veeam Software.

“For Veeam Software it is imperative we have a high-performing and progressive New Zealand distribution partner network to deliver our technology to our customers,” Bender says.

“That’s why we’ve added Ingram Micro. Our organisations share similar values and aspirations and we are looking forward to working together.”

Veeam has been going from strength to strength in New Zealand, with Don Williams, Veeam Software Australia and New Zealand vice president, telling ChannelLife New Zealand earlier this year that the company was increasing its investment locally with the addition of its first in-country New Zealand field marketing manager.

The appointment was one of several initiatives designed to deepen the vendors relationships with local resellers and reach aggressive targets locally.

Across ANZ the company clocked 20% year on year growth last year. Kiwi-only figures are not broken out.
