VeeamON 2018 is still fresh in my memory after three busy, yet inspiring conference days in Chicago, IL. Over 2,200 attendees from all around the world attended VeeamON 2018, and I had the chance to catch up with old friends and make some new ones as well. There were many things to learn, discover and experience during the conference. Inside are the most important moments from VeeamON 2018.
The IT industry loves a hot topic. Cloud, hyper-converged infrastructure and machine learning are all great conversation pieces, but two of the hottest topics that are currently debated around the IT watercooler are ransomware and the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As hot as these topics are individually, what happens when two of these ideas collide? I was recently asked the question, “What is the impact of ransomware when it comes to the GDPR?” and it created the rare occurrence of a topic collision in IT.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to get budget to enhance or upgrade Disaster Recovery (DR) resources. Organizations are hesitant to spend money on things that do not get used often, or even at all if you are lucky. Unfortunately, in today’s IT climate, DR is more important than ever, but how do you increase its value even more? Let's find out.
The ability to back up your data and recover is one thing, but let’s also consider the opportunity to leverage that backup data or even the ability to leverage the investment you made further with your production storage. Enabling other parts of your business to benefit from that data is even more important as we are in a world that is critically reliant on data. And that's where Veeam DataLabs step in.
Today was the last day of the VeeamON 2018 conference — the end of three busy days for an amazing experience. Day three started immediately with breakout sessions, and the first one I took part in was Establishing a business-centric approach to data management, presented by Dave Chapa, global evangelist at Veeam.
Hello from the Windy City! Today was the first full day of VeeamON 2018 dedicated to all attendees, and there were great sessions and speakers! The first thing on the agenda was the general session, held by our President and Co-CEO Peter McKay, who showcased our new vision of providing the most complete Hyper-Availability Platform for Intelligent Data Management, which ensures business continuity, reduces risk and accelerates innovation.
VeeamON 2018 will kick off in 5 days in Chicago and it’s beginning to look a lot like the premier conference for intelligent data management. To make sure that you’re fully equipped for the VeeamON conversation, whether you're attending onsite or just engaging online, I prepared a short guide that will support your social media presence.
