Last year right around this time Veeam announced a program that offered VMware Certified Professionals and VMware vExperts a free dual socket NFR license of their flagship product Backup and Replication v5.  Well, with the recent release Veeam Backup & Replication v6 now supporting Microsoft Hyper-V the qualifications to receive the license have expanded.  The program is now includes the following; VMware vExperts, VMware Certified Professionals (VCP), VMware Certified Instructors (VCI), VMware User Group Members (VMUG), Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCP), and Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVP).  So, if your qualifications fall under any of the above categories head on over to the sign-up page (VMware / Hyper-V) to unwrap your early Christmas gift from Veeam.
