||Lexel wins New Zealand Veeam ProPartner of the Year
Lexel took the award for Veeam's New Zealand ProPartner of the Year
Pictured L-R: Peter Bender (Channel and Alliances Manager, ANZ at
Veeam) Jeff Partridge from Lexel, Don Williams (VP for ANZ at Veeam).
The awards, presented at its ProPartners Conference in Australia, are
for the year's top performers as measured by an evaluation matrix
covering areas such as earnings growth, ability to demonstrate a core
understanding of Veeam's portfolio, innovative strategies to address the needs of customers and of the services provided.
Noel Simpson, Lexel Systems CEO, says "We are extremely pleased to have won this award as it represents the significant investment Lexel has made into its cloud strategy and solutions, including its backup and DR offering. The Cloud is a powerful model for any business, but businesses still need to address the area of backup and DR as most cloud offerings do not offer mission critical resilience or point based recovery. Lexel has developed cloud solutions that provide the core benefits of cloud, but are also supported by the necessary tools that make them suitable for
mission critical purposes."
Don Williams, Veeam ANZ vice president, says partners have been
crucial to the vendor’s business. Given that we run on a 100% channel
model, without our ProPartners, Veeam would not be where it is today."
