Veeam Moves To Extend Partner Network

Veeam Software, a provider of VMware data protection and management solutions for VMware datacenter environments, is looking to recruit Microsoft partners.

Company officials will be at this week's Microsoft Management Summit trolling for partners who want to help customers manage VMware environments through Microsoft System Center.

"We are trying to drive our partner awareness," said Doug Hazelman, Veeam's senior director of product strategy. "We have a number of partners who are VMware partners but we are also doing some heavy recruitment right now for Microsoft partners or those VMware partners that want to become deeper Microsoft partners, especially in building a System Center competency to be able to really follow on with Microsoft's vision for the private cloud as they move forward."

System Center Operations Manager by default can't see any VMware information. Veeam brings all the VMware virtual infrastructure information, such as performance and event data for the host hardware information, into System Center Operations Manager.

Veeam this week said Microsoft has named it a Microsoft Technology Center partner. Microsoft will install the Veeam nworks Management Pack at its centers worldwide.

Last week, the company said that its Veeam University training program is now offering an online professional accreditation program for its 3,000 channel partners. The program has two levels, Veeam Technical Sales Professional (VMTSP) and Veeam Sales Professional (VMSP).
