Veeam® Software, innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization
management solutions for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, today announced
accelerated company success in the enterprise market, proving more enterprises
are choosing Modern Data Protection™ as they continue to adopt virtualization
at record speed. Veeam reports 220 percent year-over-year growth in the number
of enterprise deals^1 closed in Q2 2013 compared to Q2 2012. Veeam is also
reporting the strongest quarter in company history for enterprise customer
acquisitions with 300 percent growth for the second quarter of 2013 compared
to Q1 13.

New Veeam enterprise customers include Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ:
JKHY), Vestas Wind Systems A/S, BNP Paribas, Swiss Re, TrendMicro, Norwegian
Cruise Line, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, REHAU AG & Co., Ferretti Group and
the School District of Palm Beach County – all choosing Veeam, which now
protects over 4 million virtual machines worldwide.

"Veeam products performed exceptionally well during a recent key data center
migration, providing solid performance in replicating, backing up, and
restoring our environments," said Michael Brittenham, Director of Corporate
Systems at Jack Henry & Associates, a S&P 400 company that supports more than
11,300 financial institutions with core processing and complementary
solutions. "The fact that we can manage our large enterprise deployment of
Veeam from a central console was also a deciding factor for us in choosing
Veeam as our standard modern data protection solution for more than 4,000
virtual machines."

Vestas Wind Systems A/S is the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of
wind turbines, which use wind energy to generate electricity. Headquartered in
Århus, Denmark, Vestas has 19,000 employees and a technology infrastructure
that includes two datacenters. "Veeam´s Backup & Replication product is easy
to use, powerful and flexible in every modern vSphere enterprise environment”
said Alan Madsen, Technical Lead, Hardware & Framework / Group Finance &
Operations at Vestas Wind Systems. ”Every time we take a backup or do a
restore, we are surprised with the product’s performance and ingenuity."

“Our accelerated momentum and market share in the enterprise space is a result
of major enterprise wins, strengthened relationships with prominent partners
like Softchoice, record company growth overall, and numerous product and
industry awards,” said Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO of Veeam. “With 88
percent of the Fortune 500 as Veeam customers and the year-over-year growth of
the virtual machines Veeam protects at 74 percent, Modern Data Protection is
fueling the enterprise adoption of a new breed of backup for critical
applications.”

“When it comes to backup, enterprises need data protection that removes
barriers to off-site backup, reduces backup windows, and increases recovery
options,” said Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Storage Software for IDC.
“Veeam's ability to deliver these enterprise-level features, combined with the
high levels of virtualization usage within large organizations, are important
contributors to their recent growth within the data protection and recovery
software market.”

Veeam’s momentum in the enterprise continues with the recent availability of
Veeam Backup & Replication v7, purpose-built with new enterprise–level
features to support the growing demand. The solution includes two disruptive
innovations, Built-in WAN Acceleration and Backup from Storage Snapshots, to
address challenges many large organizations face including exploding data
volumes, shrinking backup windows, and more stringent recovery point and
recovery time objectives (RPOs and RTOs). Veeam Backup & Replication v7 also
introduces 7 additional market-leading features and more than 75 other new
features/enhancements, including Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint,
VMware vCloud Director Integration, Self-Service Recovery of VMs and Guest
Files, and Native Tape Support.

Attendees at VMworld 2013 are invited to visit booth 1629 for the first public
reveal of Veeam Backup & Replication v7. For additional information on Veeam,

Additional Customer Quotes and Info

Roswell Park Cancer Institute, the nation’s first cancer research, treatment
and education center, is a growing organization that needed an
enterprise-level backup and recovery solution for its more than 450 VMware
vSphere virtual machines. “The backup tools we tried using were industry
leaders but were definitely not enterprise solutions,” said Nick Vega, Network
System Specialist for Roswell. “Veeam Backup & Replication gives us a level of
comfort and security we never had with other backup tools. Veeam has our back
every time. It’s a rock-solid, stable solution, and when it comes to backup
and recovery, those are crucial attributes, especially when you’re trying to
restore something during an HIPAA audit or for a critical business need.”

district in the United States with 185 schools and more than 200,000 students

to integrate with their virtual environment, and ease of use. Saving time and
money was also essential to SDPBC. “We’re on a tight budget, so all of the
advantages related to Veeam’s functionality and costs are very important to
us,” said Henry Martin, Manager, Department of IT Infrastructure and Security
at SDPBC. ”Veeam Backup & Replication is a cost-efficient and dependable
solution for our school district. It’s intuitive, easy-to-use and requires no
extensive training.”

The Ferretti Group is one of the leading world players in the design,
construction and sale of motor yachts, Based in Forlì, Italy, many of its

cost-effective and straightforward solution we’ve found on the market,” said
Guido Angelo Ingenito, IT Infrastructure & Security Manager, Ferretti Group.
“Achieving the full benefits of virtualization is easy, as long as you have
Veeam Backup & Replication.” The IT team supports four data centers, three in
