mwpreston at #VeeamON
I’m super excited to say that I will be attending the first annual VeeamON conference coming up in October in fabulous Las Vegas! I’ve been a long time supporter of Veeam and their flagship product Veeam Backup and Replication so when I heard they were going to have three full days of deep technical sessions I knew right away that I needed to be there!
What might I mean by deep technical sessions? Well, you can take a peak at the session catalog to get a feel for what we are in store for. Topics like working with the Veeam REST api, best practices for backing up SQL/Exchange/AD, and Storage/Network best practices are certainly ones that jump out at me. I’ve had a lot of ideas for blog posts and projects centred around some of the subjects so hopefully having access to all the Veeam Experts at the conference will give me the final push to finally finish some of these up.
Also, we have already seen some of the new features that Veeam Backup and Replication v8 has to offer. Thinks like Replication from Backups, Failover Plans and Backup encryption have all been well documented and the product is well into it’s beta phase. That said, I get the feeling that we haven’t heard the whole story around Veeam v8 and I bet there will be some super awesome features unveiled during VeeamON – don’t hold me to that though, it’s simply my personal opinion.
If you haven’t had a look at the agenda I suggest you do that as well. Veaam has landed some great speakers for keynotes and general sessions and it should make out to be a great show! If you’re coming, definitly hit me up on Twitter – I’d love to hang out. If you can’t make it, well, that totally sucks – but don’t fret – I’ll do my best to try and live blog and capture the buzz on this blog. In this case, what happens in Vegas – get’s shared with the world.
