TIMG has achieved platinum status in the Veeam Cloud and Service Provider Program, after selling more Cloud Connect licenses across Australia and New Zealand than anyone else..

The information management services provider company launched its Veeam cloud solution 14 months ago with a focus on backup and disaster recovery-as-a-service and is now the largest Cloud Connect provider across Australia and New Zealand.

Chris Cotterrell, TIMG general manager, says the company’s background in off-site media storage made backup-as-a-service and disaster recovery-as-a-service a natural fit for ti.

“More and more clients are looking for online options and the TIMG and Veeam combination adds up to a solution they know they can trust,” Cotterrell says.

Asanga Wanigatunga, Veeam Asia Pacific and Japan senior director within the Global Cloud Group, says today’s enterprises ‘are more demanding than ever before’ in their expectations that there be access to all applications and services 24.7.365, with zero tolerance for downtime.

“As a Veeam Cloud and Service Provide, TIMG is able to provide organisations with peace of mind that in the event of an incident, services can become available within the shortest period of time,” Wanigatunga says.

TIMG, which has 11 offices across Australia and New Zeland, says its Veeam-powered DRaaS offering provides recovery time and point objectives of less than 15 minutes, agnostic of customer operating syste, applications or storage, with VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments both supported.

The company has its own Australian-based data centres peforming secondary replication and also offers an online backup reseller partner program, enabling resellers to onsell its backup offerings.
