The name "Veeam" came from the phonetic pronunciation of the letters "VM," as in virtual machine.
Ratmir Timashev and Andrei Baronov founded Veeam in 2006. Timashev and Baronov had sold their previous IT management software company, Aelita Software Corporation, to Quest Software in 2004; Dell subsequently acquired Quest Software in 2012. On June 2016, Dell announced the sale of their software division, which included Quest, to Francisco Partners and Elliott Management Corporation.
The first Veeam products, Veeam Monitor and Veeam Reporter, provided virtual-infrastructure monitoring, reporting, analysis and documentation. Later, in 2010, the company combined both products to form Veeam ONE. Veeam gained attention in 2007 with its free VM backup copy product, FastSCP which became a basis for building Veeam's data-protection software for hardware virtualization.
In 2016, Veeam appointed Peter C. McKay, prior Senior Vice President and General Manager, Americas with VMware, as President/COO. In 2017, Peter McKay and Andrei Baronov were promoted to the company’s Co-CEO roles.
The company has a number of international offices, including regional headquarters for EMEA in Paris, France, for the Americas in Columbus, Ohio, for the Middle East in Dubai and for the Asia-Pacific region in Sydney, Australia.
In 2008, with 10 employees, the company released Veeam Backup & Replication, a tool that provided VMware vSphere VMs with incremental backups and image-based replication, with built-in data deduplication and compression. Veeam Backup & Replication started supporting Microsoft Hyper-V in 2012.
In 2015, Veeam extended its product line with a free backup utility for physical endpoints — Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE. This utility supports PCs running 32- and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows OS and integrates with Veeam Backup & Replication. In the same year, Veeam released Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure, a tool for copying files between on-premises and Microsoft Azure VMs.
In 2016, Veeam launched Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, a software utility for backing up Office 365 Exchange servers, and Veeam Availability Orchestrator, a multi-hypervisor disaster recovery orchestration software with documenting, testing and reporting capabilities.
In 2017, Veeam introduced three new products for physical and cloud workloads:
- Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows and Veeam Agent for Linux — applications dedicated to physical workload data protection with various backup/restore scenarios including cloud.
- Veeam Availability Console — a free tool for managing Veeam-powered data protection and disaster recovery in distributed infrastructures and enabling BaaS and DRaaS services delivered through service providers.
This resulted in two new products:
- Veeam nworks Management Pack for VMware allowed users to directly integrate VMware management into Microsoft System Center Operations Manager.
- Veeam nworks Smart Plug-In for VMware allowed users to directly integrate VMware management into HP OpenView.
In 2012, both products were renamed to Veeam Management Pack and Veeam Smart Plug-In, omitting the word "nworks."
