VeeamON 2017: Learn, connect and interact

VeeamON 2017 is right around the corner, 8 days to be exact. The event begins on May 16 in New Orleans, LA! Personally, I have been very busy preparing my three breakout sessions and all of the demos, as well as all of the social media activities I’m involved in. If you’re a returning VeeamON veteran, welcome back, but if you’re a newbie to VeeamON, don’t be shy – my ask of you is quite simple — come prepared to achieve three key tasks:

1. Learn

2. Connect

3. Interact

Let’s touch on how these tasks can be achieved in a fun way!

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is NOW AVAILABLE!

Many multi-tier applications that once had to be hosted on premises are now being deployed within the public cloud. With this adoption, millions of organizations worldwide no longer desire to manage their on-premises Exchange email infrastructure for a multitude of different reasons. The Exchange Online component of Office 365 provides a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering for businesses to purchase on a subscription basis. To complicate things just slightly, protecting and ensuring the recoverability of this data has been a challenge.

Get centralized, off-site backup and replication with Veeam Cloud Connect for the Enterprise

It’s a problem that’s continuing to plague organizations around the globe. For example, a large global organization was faced with recent outages of their end-user-facing, retail-sales application costing the company thousands of dollars. A mandate from the CIO placed the IT team in a position where they HAD to figure out how to centrally protect the applications and services at their remote office/branch offices (ROBOs), as well as their headquarters (HQ) datacenter.

It’s unfortunate, but this challenge is becoming more and more commonplace in the today’s virtualized datacenter. Senior executives are now demanding centralized, off-site backup AND replication of their many remote offices and datacenters to the HQ datacenter, or in some cases, to the public cloud.

Deep dive VMware performance analysis

The best things about virtual computing are its ease of scale, management, portability and consolidation Virtualization also presents unique challenges for the IT team members who ask the following questions:
  • • How do I monitor this constantly evolving and changing environment?
  • • What metrics are the most important?
  • • Do we keep using the legacy tools we're used using?
  • • Do I procure something that's purposely built for the virtual infrastructure (VI)?
  • • Like most IT decisions, there are pros and cons to each approach, but what if we took a bit of a hybrid approach?
  • • What if the VI could be monitored and reported on within an existing toolset?

Is Your Government Data Center Protected from the Zombie Horde!?!

Happy Halloween, Veeamers! In the spirit of the season, we're having some fun!

I recently participated in a video interview with Kristy Dalton, GovGirl – the topic of the discussion was how a zombie apocalypse could destroy our data center. This sounds like a tall tale, but disasters can happen to your data. Read on to see how the 3-2-1 rule and more can help your data center.

Imagine the scenario of a zombie apocalypse. The city is being overtaken by the horde, phones are ringing off the hook, it’s complete pandemonium, and all systems are down! This scenario for the IT professional definitely falls in line with the "other duties" category in the job description.
