Veeam Software, the leader in Backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management, today announced results from Q2 2019. Having recently exceeded $1 billion in annual bookings, joining an elite group of software leaders, Veeam's annual recurring revenue (ARR) increased 26 percent year-over-year (YoY) in Q2 2019, a testament to the success of a unique subscription pricing model introduced earlier this year for all new Veeam products, including new Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4. Hailed as one of the most important releases in Veeam company history, Veeam Availability Suite U4 is approaching 350,000 downloads since its release in January.

"As we continue to heavily invest in our R&D, sales and marketing, and partner ecosystem, we're seeing increased adoption of Veeam's Subscription licensing among our customers across all regions worldwide," said Ratmir Timashev, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President (EVP) of Sales & Marketing. "Each geography reported growth, which shows that, and as we move into Act II of our evolution - the Hybrid Cloud - it's an exciting time to be at Veeam. Seventy-two percent of organizations are looking to embrace Cloud Data Managementi and are transitioning to cloud strategies. We're excited to support their journey and meet data expectations as the No. 1 player in Cloud Data Management."

"Collaboration with strategic technology partners has never been stronger or in higher demand," Timashev continued. "We expect to make additional partner announcements in 2H 2019 to further feed the demand of our partners to combine Veeam backup and data protection software with industry-leading hardware, storage and hyperconverged solutions. Our new "with Veeam" program, which is receiving overwhelming positive response, is just one strategy of how Veeam will innovate and collaborate with its technology partners to deliver a combined hardware plus software solution to enhance customer choice and flexibility."
