We all love VEEAM .
But why is it called like that?
Originally Ratmir Timashev and Andrei Baronov founded Veeam in 2006.
They called their company from the phonetic pronunciation of the letters VM (stands for Virtual Machine)!
In the meanwhile everybody knows that the company is owned by US Insight Partners and has it’s headquarters in Baar (Switzerland) and in Columbus, Ohio (US).
I think that this is too simple, the name V.E.E.A.M. stands for much more...
Virtual Machines / Virtualization. Yes correct, it all started at the beginning with monitoring and reporting for a virtual infrastructure.
Virtual machines and virtualization is probably still the most used asset with the veeam products.
Versatile. It’s more than clear that Veeam tries to have a solution for every demand, so it has definitely versatile products.
Vision. Veeam has a great vision : To be the most trusted provider of Backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management!

Definitely more than just the phonetic pronunciation of the letters VM if you ask me
