In the last couple years, On-Demand Labs have become an important part in our IT industry to train employees, run customer demos and get hands-on experience. One of the most innovative and capable On-Demand Labs is Cisco’s dCloud. Cisco dCloud is a huge catalog of demos, training and sandboxes for every Cisco architecture which are fully scripted. The customizable environments are available almost instantly in the cloud. It's very easy to work with and to get started, all you need is a Cisco account.
Encryption is a great way to keep data secure, but sometimes it can be used against us. Yes, we’re talking about ransomware.
When ransomware enters your systems, usually through a PC, it begins to encrypt your data and can target network-attached storage (NAS), virtualization, online collaboration tools, and even your online backups to render them unusable.
There are six months left until the start of VeeamON 2018. Now is a good time to update you with all you need to know about our biggest event.

A little over two years ago, I was at the Microsoft Technology Center in Manhattan, and I noticed that all of the engineers and technical people I was working with that day seemed a little stressed. I took the opportunity over lunch with the chief architect to find out what was going on. Microsoft had decreed that anybody in a technical role had to take and pass the Microsoft Exam 70-533, Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions. I also found out that many had already taken and failed the exam.
This has been a remarkable year in Veeam’s history, one in which we received recognition from the world’s leading analysts, as well as the confirmation of different industries’ leaders in terms of customer satisfaction. We are committed to delivering the #1 Availability for any app, any data on any cloud and our customers are at the core of our innovation efforts.
Hello from Veeam Support!
Recently, a customer contacted us with the very curious case. The SureBackup job was failing with the generic error message during snapshot creation phase: “The specified feature is not supported by this version.” There were several VMs included in the SureBackup job, but only one specific VM failed. Moreover, the source backup job itself worked perfectly, including the affected VM.
For many IT decision makers, flash is strictly for critical business applications. So, it would seem a non-starter for many organizations to consider flash for backup and recovery workloads. Perhaps it’s time to think differently.
What if there was a more modular way to deploy flash that would enable organizations to reap the same operational benefits for backup as they’ve already enjoyed in their production application environments? Such as increased data center efficiencies through massive storage consolidation, predictable scale-out performance capabilities and increased IT management simplicity.
Last year we announced Veeam Managed Backup Portal, exclusive to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. This Azure-based solution was well received among Veeam’s managed service provider (MSP) and value-added reseller (VAR) communities. This enabled the delivery of remote monitoring and management to their customers' Veeam Backup & Replication environments. Veeam Managed Backup Portal came with zero connectivity requirements between the MSP and their customer, and minus having an Azure subscription, there were minimal upfront costs, making these new recurring revenue streams even more profitable.
As we close out 2017, one of the things my team and I enjoy most are to open nominations for the Veeam Vanguard Program. The Vanguard program is Veeam’s influencer program that gathers individuals who, above all, just get what we do. We have Vanguards from all over the world from different technical backgrounds, and you can be the next one.
