Veeam's New Technical Training and Certification Programs

 

Dubai, UAE– September 16, 2014 : Veeam® Software, innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Modern Data Center™, today announced new technical training and certification programs for both its reseller ProPartners and end-users, launching in the region of Emerging Markets.

A new program will be rolling across Middle East region starting at the end of September 2014. The course will educate and certify partners and end-user engineers as Veeam Certified Engineers (VMCE).The designation of VMCE establishes a level of expertise required to implement and configure Veeam software correctly and most effectively. The designation also verifies the engineer has the necessary knowledge and experience to be hired as a Veeam Expert.

Distribution partners of Veeam such as Aptec–an Ingram Micro company are selected as Veeam Authorized Education Centers (VMAEC) to deliver fee-based education courses with a curriculum developed by Veeam. Every class includes both lecture and hands-on elements that allow the students to learn about the technology and its configuration, and then experience the configuration in labs based on real-world customer scenarios. The first VMCE session is planned for September 28-30th in Dubai, UAE at Aptec-Ingram Micro’s office in Dubai Internet City, Dubai, UAE.

“As the only distributor across Middle East and Africa delivering Veeam’s VMCE program, we are excited to help grow Veeam and the market awareness about its products,” said Zornitza Hadjitodorova, Head of Ingram Micro Training, Middle East and Africa. “We have invested in a state-of-the-art training lab to offer our students a high-end environment where hands-on education thrives”, Hadjitodorova added.

This new certification program is designed to support the systems engineers of Veeam customers, as well as the pre-sales engineers of Veeam’s network of ProPartners, with high-level technical competencies through delivery of technical courses required to achieve VMCE certification.

“The implementation of the new training and certification programs will no doubt amplify and enhance channel and end-user ecosystem,” said Vitaly Sukhovsky, Vice President, Emerging Markets and LATAM at Veeam Software. “Our goal is to see valued Veeam ProPartners become certified experts encouraged, well informed and determined as the result of this program, which will yield significant returns for them. This training will guarantee that our partners are enabled and equipped with the necessary tools to support and offer additional services to their customers. The potential, Modern Data Center™ brings to the enterprise market, will be leveraged by our regional teams to ensure that our partner community takes full advantage of these hot growth opportunities.”

Veeam will empower its engineers specifically by providing education on Veeam product capabilities, their interaction and alignment with compatible technologies, and both onsite and online instruction on how to most effectively implement Veeam to achieve maximum functionality. This training will include certification programs that will enable the reseller to offer and deliver highly profitable professional services, and enable the customer to further optimize its investment in Veeam solutions for a much higher ROI and improved SLAs (Service Level Agreements). All VMCE candidates must pass a proctored exam as the final step in earning their certification. Veeam expects 1,000 – 2,000 engineers to earn the VMCE distinction within the next year.
