Veeam CEO Ratmir Timashev On Selling N2WS And Pushing AWS, Azure Backup Leadership

‘We believe three markets are going to be huge: Office 365, AWS backup, and backup of Azure. All native cloud native backups. Each of these markets will become, for us, maybe half-a-billion-dollar opportunities in the next five years,” says Veeam CEO Ratmir Timashev.

Aiming Big For The Cloud

While it is common to think of Veeam as the pioneer in developing technology for protecting data in VMware environments, the truth is the Baar, Switzerland-based company was maybe the third vendor to enter that market and did such a good job that it seems like it was first, according to CEO Ratmir Timashev.

Not being first, but instead bringing out the right capabilities when the market is ready, is the keystone of Veeam's innovation strategy, and is seen in the company's current approach to protecting data in Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Kubernetes environments, Timashev told CRN in a wide-ranging discussion late last month.

Timashev also discussed Veeam's purchased of N2WS, a developer of data protection technologies for AWS environments, and the subsequent sale of that company in the face of U.S. government concerns, and told CRN that because the N2WS acquisition was walled off within Veeam during the short time is was part of Veeam, Veeam independently developed its own AWS data protection capabilities.

Next for Veeam? A big push into data management rather than data protection as a way to help customers better take advantage of their increasing mounds of data, Timashev said.
