VeeamON 2018 kicked off today and more than 2,200 attendees from around the world transformed the McCormick Place convention center in Chicago into a tech capital. Traditionally, the first day of VeeamON is dedicated to partners, and today was no exception.

The Partner Summit was opened by our President and co-CEO Peter McKay, who talked about Veeam’s vision for 2018 and beyond and how we team up with our partners to provide the best solutions on the market for Intelligent Data Management. Peter continued his keynote with sharing the great results Veeam achieved in 2017, including the Net Promoter Score (NPS) score of 73, 3.5 times higher than the industry average.

N2WS is now part of the Veeam family, and I was very interested to find out more about it. I attended the session held by Ezra Charm, N2WS VP of Marketing, who showcased our new offering for backup and DR for AWS.

Another highlight of the day was Anton Gostev’s session, Ask me anything: Veeam R&D and Support. This session became official at VeeamON 2018 after more unofficial Q&A sessions at previous editions. The questions were very diverse, people were very interested to find out about future releases and everybody got an answer.

There also were two winners for “Best Questions,” chosen by Anton Gostev and Rick Vanover. These two winners received a 1 TB USB hard drive — perfect for holding backups for Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows!

The Expo Hall is a big attraction at every VeeamON conference. The attendees are interacting with the Veeam experts in an out of the box setup and get hands-on experience with Veeam solutions.
