He said the company will surpass the half-billion dollar revenue mark in 2016, and he “fully expected” to reach $1 billion in annual revenue by 2018.”

Veeam has achieved remarkable growth, rising from a start-up in 2007 to becoming one of the top five data protection software vendors in 2015,” said Phil Goodwin, research director at analyst house IDC.

The company’s 22 percent growth rate is substantially higher than the overall market’s 6.3 percent CAGR that IDC expects through 2019. Moreover, Veeam has developed a substantial ecosystem of resellers and integrators around its DRaaS capability.
