The Veeam Certified Engineer (VMCE) certification program has already become a classic of the VeeamON conferences as we strongly believe education is the pillar of any IT professional's job. Being a Veeam Certified Engineer not only confirms that you possess the required knowledge to deploy and configure Veeam products, but provides you direct access to support for critical on-site issues and will definitely help those looking to take their career at the next level.

What would you do in case of a ransomware attack? This is a question I have heard a lot lately and I wish there was a simpler answer for it. Ransomware attacks have increased in numbers and complexity and spread to organizations of any industry across the globe. As a matter of fact, we need to accept that cyberattacks are more present than ever, and they can affect both our professional and personal lives, unless we prepare — this is the key for staying out of trouble!
Downtime is not an option for modern organizations that must fulfill their customers’ needs and expectations. Different types of incidents can occur and impact your business revenue or even existence. Whether it’s a ransomware attack, a power outage, flood or simply human mistakes, these events are unpredictable, and the best thing you can do is to BE PREPARED.
Preparedness means that you should have a solid business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) plan. One that has been tested and that can be put in motion smoothly.
We are living in times when it’s hard to imagine our lives without technology. Our center of command is sitting in our pockets, and we are just a few taps away from booking a flight, checking our bank account or reading the news about our favorite football team. Our fast pace of life demands uninterrupted access to each application on any type of device from everywhere. Therefore, organizations need not only speed and versatility, they also need what we call Availability.
Here at Veeam, we understand how important your data is and how it can affect your organization if it’s unavailable. The link between IT systems and the success of each business, no matter the industry, is undoubtable. Unexpected disruptions come in many shapes and forms, from human error, to malicious attacks, to fire, floods or natural disasters. Having a strong Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) plan can prove vital.
Having a clear picture of what VM snapshots and backups can do for you is critical when your data is at stake. To dispel any doubts, snapshots are NOT backups. They are two different processes designed to address different needs. Today, I’m going to explain the discrepancy between VM snapshots and backups and provide you with a few scenarios where each of them best fits.
While it is true that many Veeam products will use a snapshot as part of a backup — a snapshot by itself is not a backup. This logic applies to VMware VM snapshots, Hyper-V checkpoints and storage snapshots as well.
