Veeam recently published its Data Protection Trends Report for 2020. This report is a little different from what you'd expect from a data protection vendor.
Each year, Veeam takes nominations for Veeam Innovation Awards (VIA’s) from partners and customers, in order to highlight some of the great solutions in market that are powered by Veeam software components. This year, we received nearly 50 nominations, which were then vetted by a panel of 18 judges.
For the past few years, we have been celebrating innovation and great results by Veeam partners and customers who are leveraging our technologies in really cool ways. We’re stepping that up for VeeamON 2020 by offering Veeam Innovation Awards (VIA) for both partners and customers at this year’s VeeamON event.
Last week, we discussed how there is no such thing as “the cloud” — but instead, there are multiple types of cloud-based services that affect both your production and your protection strategies. Even if we just focus on Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) or Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), or the use of cloud-based storage in complement to an on-premises backup solution, it is hugely important to not presume that those cloud-providers are equitable.
it is impossible for IT organizations that are looking ahead to not foresee cloud-based capabilities being part of their hybrid-IT strategy; likely in more than one way, giving us the term multi-cloud. But each and every cloud, used for both protection and production, will have significant ramifications on IT’s ability to deliver what the business units expect; namely, reliable and resilient assured access to the data that they rely on every day.
This week, we’re looking at the business impacts (without the techno-jargon) to emphasize that downtime and data-loss are NOT just IT issues.
Let's look at statistics, as well as other industry data, to quantify the “reality gap” that most organizations have between their business units’ expectations of IT and IT’s ability to assure delivery.
We’re kicking off a five-week video blog series for the Tuesdays in October. One of the most common conversations that I have with IT leaders when they are discussing their IT modernization initiatives is, “How are you going to back that up?”
Veeam Cares is the #Veeamazing corporate program that encourages Veeamers to volunteer in order to impact our world (in addition to fixing the world’s data protection and data management challenges). One of the perks of being a Veeamer is that Veeam gives our employees 24 hours (three business days) of volunteer time, above and beyond PTO and regional holidays. I’m a volunteer leader in Scouting (which is also a worldwide movement); so, this year, I spent my Veeam Cares days and some vacation time serving at the World Scout Jamboree, where 45,000 youth from 150 countries came together for 12 days.
To start day two of VeeamON 2019, we are also celebrating customers who have been innovating with the continuation of Veeam Innovation Awards (VIAs).
