              copied to the cloud.

Karri Alexion-Tiernan, Director, Server and Tools Marketing, Microsoft

“The Windows Azure cloud platform can provide IT organizations with an
affordable and highly available alternative to managing offsite backup storage
repositories and tape backups. We’re pleased to work with Veeam to make it
easy for small to mid-sized organizations to take advantage of the Windows
Azure cloud.”

Jason Buffington, Senior Analyst for Data Protection, Enterprise Strategy
Group (ESG)

“Improving backup and increased virtualization continue to be top planned IT
investments in 2013, which is just one of the reasons for Veeam’s success.
Veeam was among the first to directly address the unique protection challenges
of highly virtualized environments, and they have demonstrated an appetite to
grow beyond those first successes and continue innovating. Today, every IT
conversation seems to have cloud-considerations in it. So it should come as no
surprise that Veeam would be among the first vendors to pull it all together
in providing a simple, powerful solution for copying VM backups to the cloud.”

Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Storage Software, IDC

"Many customers see offsite backup as a necessary component for their data
protection and recovery strategy but stop short of actual implementation
because they see acquiring and managing an offsite repository as too expensive
and complicated. Veeam Backup Cloud Edition helps to address these types of
barriers to adoption of cloud technology by making it easier for their
customers to copy backups to the cloud.”

Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO, Veeam Software

“Small to mid-sized organizations now have a cost effective and easy-to-use
alternative to tape backups and establishing an offsite backup repository.
Veeam Backup Cloud Edition enables IT to quickly set up scheduled copies to
the public cloud of their choice, and the software takes care of the rest,
with regular reports and alerts that keep backup admins fully informed on
costs and backup status. We’re proud to have set the standard in
virtualization for modern data protection. With Veeam Backup Cloud Edition,
we’ve raised the bar yet again with a solution that’s powerful, easy to use
and affordable.”
