Its official, we are heading back to Las Vegas this year for VeeamON 2015! We’ve just announced that the world’s premier data center availability event will be held at the Aria Resort & Casino from October 26- 29 this year. We’ve added an additional day and will have even more people attending this great event with nearly double the participation! This will be a one-of-a-kind event for customers, partners and prospects to connect for everything Veeam.
2015 will prove to be bigger and better, yet built on the successful elements of last year’s event. We took the feedback from our inaugural event last year very seriously. Everything from conversations with sponsors and attendees, feedback on social networks and the session rankings in the mobile app: we listened.
VeeamON is the best opportunity to get complete access to Veeam resources. In particular, the technical content and deep dive sessions are outstanding content. This is very important as our products have increased in their functionality. Additionally, there are many features and use cases that truly need dedicated time to enable next level of availability for the modern data center. Personally, when I present on a Veeam topic in a normal context (say a 1 hour session), I can only scratch the surface of what Veeam can do. VeeamON is the only place to cover technical content and deep dives completely for availability topics. Additionally, VeeamON attendees have an opportunity to dialog directly with the Veeam Research and Development teams. This access is unparalleled.
Here’s a video recap of last year’s event, this should be convincing enough to come this year:
Aside from the content tracks, VeeamON is a great way to take the VMCE course. The VMCE credential has a course and test requirement, you can achieve the course portion during VeeamON. And based on last year’s feedback, we’ll make sure you don’t miss the breakout sessions while sitting in on VMCE training. This will be done by holding the VMCE course before VeeamON starts, stay tuned for specific times and locations for this. Additionally, the VMCE course is heavily discounted when added to the VeeamON registration.
Veeam is also all about our partners. The VeeamON Expo Lounge will have partners of all types showing how their solutions and services can solve your needs for availability in the modern data center. VeeamON also allows attendees to learn about the key technology adjacencies. This can be from user-submitted tracks, partner sessions and broader availability topics.
Also this year, we’ll see the Expo Lounge have the Veeam Expert Bar! Last year that was a great setup with plenty of whiteboard space for excellent knowledge transfer from our top support staff, solution architects and product teams. There also will be plenty of dedicated content tracks for Veeam ProPartners, in particular resellers and service providers.
And then there is the fact that we are hosting in Las Vegas. Which of course means we will find time for social opportunities, including the industry best VeeamON party. I’ve been told that nobody throws a party like Veeam. The ALL GREEN party will happen on the Wednesday night of the VeeamON week and nobody will want to miss that!
What do you need to do now? Well, to get started, Pre-Register today. This will give you first access to early bird pricing, which will be at a great discount. We will have more information soon, including a summary agenda and then a detailed agenda of the content tracks that will be presented.
