At the HPE Partner Growth Summit Virtual Experience, HPE announced the winners of the 2020 HPE Partner of the Year Awards. These channel partners from across the partner ecosystem have been awarded for their for outstanding performance, commitment to customer excellence, focus on growth and innovation, and professional achievements.
“I’m proud to recognize our channel partners who raise the standard of business excellence and demonstrate continued commitment to our joint customers,” said Paul Hunter, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Partner Sales, HPE. “HPE is dedicated to enabling our partners with tools and solutions that will spark innovation in their own business. By collaborating and growing together, we are able to deliver the outcomes our customers need to prosper.”
“To better understand the value of the HPE and Veeam partnership, we interviewed organizations to learn more about the reasons for combining Veeam data management software with HPE Nimble Storage,” said Phil Goodwin, Research Director, IDC. “While they cited a variety of considerations, such as the need to conduct backups at scale and complete data recovery activities faster, their decisions boiled down to requiring more effective and robust data backup and recovery activities. Stated otherwise, they had concluded that their previous solutions could no longer meet their business needs.” The IDC White Paper, sponsored by Veeam and HPE Nimble Storage, “Veeam + HPE Nimble Storage: Five-Year ROI of 278%,” showed that study participants will achieve an almost 4:1 return on their investment — 278% — in the integrated Veeam and HPE Nimble Storage solution set over five years.
