While Baar, Switzerland-based Veeam is the dominant vendor in Europe's data management and data protection market, it is only number four in the U.S. market. But the U.S. has the biggest and fastest-growing market, and is home to those all-important cloud providers that will continue to drive IT market growth in the future.

And that is where Insight Partners sees opportunity. The New York-based private equity company, which focuses on the software and SaaS market, is acquiring Veeam in a transaction valued at about $5 billion, with an eye on providing the management it sees necessary for Veeam to make a big play for the U.S. market.

But Insight Partners thinks Veeam can grow much faster with a bit of help.
