Through First Distribution’s extensive African footprint, Veeam is now proudly available across SADC countries, as well as Central, East and West African countries.

This means partners and their customers now have access to Veeam’s world-class backup, disaster recovery and data management software across Africa, with immediate access to software and support.

Winston Spagnoletti, Brand Manager for Veeam at First Distribution, says First Distribution’s expansion into East, West and Central Africa will allow partners to leverage Veeam and Veeam’s integration with their alliance partners.

“What makes the First Distribution Veeam offering stand out is the partnership with complementary brands such as AWS, Microsoft, Lenovo, Nutanix, etc. So, partners already have the infrastructure in place to offer world-class on-premises and cloud solutions to their clients.”

The First Distribution Veeam offering

Veeam recognises the new challenges companies across the globe face in enabling the Always-On Enterprise, a business that must operate 24/7 365. To address this, Veeam has pioneered a new market of availability for the Always-On Enterprise by helping organisations meet recovery time and point objectives (RTPO) of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data.

Veeam Availability Suite, which includes Veeam Backup & Replication, leverages virtualisation, storage and cloud technologies that enable the modern data centre to help organisations save time, mitigate risks and dramatically reduce capital and operational costs, while always supporting the current and future business goals of Veeam customers.
