I was lucky enough to attend VeeamON 2014 as a blogger at the beautiful Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 6th through the 9th. This was Veeam’s first ever conference and IT WAS AWESOME! Veeam really does it right when it comes to community and engagement. The conference itself was jam packed full of deep dive technical information – a great event overall and I can’t wait until 2015!
Disclaimer: My travel and accomadation were paid for by Veeam! They gave me a sweet little VIP pass to the conference which scored me some extra M&Ms as well! Veeam by no means requested that I write an article nor did they proof and edit anything I did write – It’s all my own words!
Speaking of the words…
Here’s a roll-up of everything I wrote surrounding VeeamON!
What to expect from VeeamON 2017 - I’ve had the opportunity to attend both the previous VeeamON conferences in Vegas as well as the mini VeeamON forum last year in the UK and since it’s still a relatively new conference on the scene I thought I’d give everyone a bit of an overview and heads up as what to expect from the Veeam Cloud Connect – a customer perspective! - During the partner keynote at VeeamON it was announced that some of its’ partners will be ready to go in terms of supporting the new Veeam Cloud Connect hosting functionality that is set to be released inside of Veeam Backup and Replication v8. In it’s basics, Veeam Cloud Connect and the Veeam Service Provider certification Veeam Endpoint Backup – Bringing Veeaminess to your physical endpoints - Today (Wednesday) at VeeamON brought with it some of the biggest news to come out of the conference. Veeam has officially announced the arrival of Veeam Endpoint Backup, a solution enabling IT shops to backup their physical Windows desktops and laptops, but do it in a similar style as to how we currently backup our Veeam Backup and Replication v8 – What we know so far… - With Veeam hosting their first conference and the release of Veeam Backup and Replication v8 being set to be sometime within Q4 of this year one can only put two and two together to come to the conclusion that they have held onto some major announcements for VeeamON. I could be wrong but the quietness Veeam reiterates just how important partners are during keynote - Today is Partner Day at VeeamON and it kicked off with the partner keynote this morning at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. To call this a keynote would be somewhat misleading as it was more of talk show type atmosphere complete with a host and couches on stage. The only thing missing was a Top What happens in Vegas – is livestreamed – #VeeamON live streaming - The official kickoff of VeeamON is literally just minutes away and in the case of VeeamON, the old saying of “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” most certainly doesn’t apply! If for some reason you ccouldn’tattend Veeam’s inaugural event don’t worry – they have you covered. Throughout the next couple of days Veeam will 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
