virtualDCS first European company to win Veeam Software award

virtualDCS, the channel-first cloud and disaster recovery specialist, has become the first company in Europe to ever scoop a Veeam Innovation Award from Veeam Software.

With more than 100 nominations, the judging panel of industry experts selected four Veeam Partner winners in the category that recognises ‘outstanding offerings that are delivering great capabilities to their customers’. virtualDCS’s CEO, Richard May, and CRO, Kurt Kiefer, will be presented with the award at VeeamON 2023, the community event for data recovery experts, from the 22nd to 24th May in Miami.

The accolade coincides with virtualDCS celebrating its fifteenth anniversary and releasing its new CloudCover portal. The new single pane of glass provides a customer-centric view of all Veeam-powered CloudCover services presented within a single admin portal.

This gives companies a consolidated view of customers and their service statuses, as well as highlighting warnings, and issues, and even helps to identify any potential gaps within their data protection strategy.

Richard May, CEO of virtualDCS said, “being prepared for a crisis relies on having a holistic view of your data landscape, and how it is being protected. If you look at the problem as a whole, a single treatment for data protection and recovery should be an intuitive approach to risk mitigation and incident resolution.”

Known as the ‘CloudCover Services Portal’, the product is named after virtualDCS’s suite of leading-edge cloud services that are specifically designed for the channel and service providers to deliver to their own customer base.

CloudCover’s holistic protection incorporates a range of pro-active and reactive measures, covering everything from end-user-focused Microsoft 365 backup to Kubernetes protection, partnering with Seagate, Zadara, and Vade to protect organisations against growing cyber threats.

Richard added, “We’re over the moon to receive this award, especially as we celebrate our fifteenth birthday. There’s no doubt that becoming the first company headquartered in Europe to win a VIA is another critical differentiator over our competitors and demonstrates that not all service providers are alike.

“Bringing every service into one place makes them much easier and more efficient to monitor and maintain, ultimately creating a superb end-user experience. We already have the Veeam accreditations to demonstrate our expertise and volumes, but to win an award from them for innovation is the icing on the cake and cements our position at the forefront of the cloud computing and disaster recovery industry.

“It also further endorses the market-leading technology that we offer to the channel and service providers, with the full support of Veeam and their UK team, which enables us to continue pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.”

virtualDCS recently became the first UK-owned channel-first Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) to attain Veeam platinum service provider status. This followed virtualDCS also becoming the first UK-based VCSP partner to achieve the Reseller Ready competency from Veeam, which gives virtualDCS an official seal of approval to resell Veeam’s entire product portfolio to its own partners including BaaS (Backup as a Service), Veeam Backup for Office 365, DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service), off-site backup and MSP (Managed Service Provider) backup.

virtualDCS will be exhibiting and showcasing the CloudCover Service Portal at Cloud Connections on the 6th of June 2023 in London.
