Ingram Micro Australia is offering its resellers an expanded range of Veeam monthly software rental offerings following its signing as a Veeam Cloud and Service Provider distributor.

The VCSP program provides migration, backup and disaster recovery-as-a-service and cloud backup.

The deal expands on Ingram Micro's previous relationship with Veeam, expanding its monthly software rental offerings for hosting gproviders, cloud service providers and managed service providers.

Lee Welch, Ingram Micro Australia cloud and software services general manager, says the distributor is being approached ‘every day' by partners looking to enhance their business models and hosting capabilities.

“This latest appointment follows a growing list of vendors turning to Ingram Micro to cope with the increasing demand for hybrid cloud,” Welch says.

He says the new deal provides partners with even more flexibility and choice of rental or perpetual licenses.

Don Williams, Veeam Software ANZ vice president, says the VCSP program is designed to help support partners to enable them to provide the best possible service for customers.

“We're delighted to strengthen and reinforce our relationship with Ingram Micro to help support Australian businesses maintain availability to their critical services and data,” Williams says.

The vendor's VCSP numbers have been growing strongly across Australia, driven by high demand for cloud and disaster recovery-as-a-service.
