KUALA LUMPUR – TIME dotCom Berhad (TIME) subsidiary AVM Cloud Sdn Bhd has selected Veeam Software Malaysia Sdn Bhd (Veeam) as its partner to ensure its customers have the highest levels of data availability, reliability, and protection.
“Having pioneered cloud computing services in Malaysia since 2010, AVM Cloud prides itself on being one of Malaysia’s leading cloud computing providers, and on being a leader in every technology cycle since its establishment.

Veeam’s capabilities in the data protection arena complement AVM Cloud’s services, which leverage VMware’s various cloud and virtualisation solutions.

We share VMware’s value proposition of empowering customers to become more resilient and adaptable by enabling a digital foundation that delivers ‘any app on any cloud to any device’,” explained Kenny.

Veeam’s data protection services and solutions further enable AVM Cloud to provide customers with total assurance that their data will remain safe, even in the multi-hybrid cloud context.

The company provides a single platform for cloud, virtual, physical, SaaS and Kubernetes environments. Veeam customers are confident their apps and data are protected and always available with the most simple, flexible, reliable and powerful platform in the industry.
“VCSP (Veeam Cloud and Service Provider) is a key pillar for Veeam’s growth strategy in APJ and the cloud represents an enormous opportunity for organisations in this region with many looking to adopt a multi-cloud strategy and for us to provide always-on data protection services to our customers and partners.
“We are excited to partner with AVM Cloud and are dedicated to helping them build reliable, revenue-generating Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) offerings to their customers,” said Beni Sia, Vice President for South East Asia and Korea, Veeam.
“There is a tremendous appetite for new technology and innovation among CXOs driven by a desire to move from legacy. CIOs need to focus on data protection and data immutability, and prioritise spending on comprehensive data backup and protection solutions that will allow them to excel in this digital economy.
“The 3-2-1-1-0 Backup Rule is a crucial data protection strategy that organisations must adopt. Enabling immutability, creating backups with unique code paths, protecting backups for maximum effectiveness, and enabling seamless restores are part of a robust data protection strategy,” said Beni Sia.
The 3-2-1 rule essentially means 3 copies of backup data, 2 of which are stored into different media, and one of them being offsite.
