According to an official press release by Insight Venture Partners, Ratmir Timashev, Founder & CEO of Veeam Software, was reportedly quoted stating that Veeam boasts of a long-standing relationship with Michael Triplett & Jeff Horing from Insight Venture Partners. Indeed, the company has been working with Insight since 2002, when the latter invested in Veeam’s first company - Aelita Software, says Timashev.

Veeam relied on Insight to provide strategic counsel & support back then, adds Timashev, and after selling Aelita Software to Quest Software in 2004, Veeam and Insight continued their relationship, he affirms.
