Veeam: NZ market "hitting above its weight"

06 Aug 2014

Veeam Software clocked up a 34% increase in total revenue bookings across Australia and New Zealand for the second quarter of 2014, with New Zealand now accounting for 16% of Veeam’s overall APAC revenue.

The revenue booking increase figure beats the global average of 30%.

While New Zealand-specific figures weren't available, Don Williams, Veeam Software vice president for APAC, says New Zealand growth was 'on par' with Australia.

"New Zealand is hitting above its weight and that’s something we've continued to see in the first half of this year.

"The market and economy is robust and we've been highly successful in the SMB market and are now seeing a lot of growth in the enterprise segment as well."

Williams expects 'continued success if not even higher success' over the coming months, particularly in the enterprise segment, with the company recently appointing an New Zealand territory manager to focus on mid-market enterprises.

New license bookings revenue across ANZ grew 21% for the first half of 2014, year-on-year.

"Our message of the always on business is resonating with customers and partners," Williams says.

He says a lot of legacy back-up systems can’t meet the demands of the always on business, or data centre.

The company says in New Zealand it now has 778 customers.

Williams says growth is expected to continue through the rest of 2014, with the company’s Veeam Availability Suite v8 entering general availability and Q4 traditionally a big quarter for the company.

"We have big expectations [for the rest of the year]," Williams says.
