Every year on the last Friday of July, we show our appreciation for system administrators worldwide for all of their hard work, long weekends and the sometimes very difficult circumstances they have to work in.

At Veeam, many of us have a background in system administration. Many of us went through the entire cycle of starting at the helpdesk and working our way up to become a system administrator. So we know what it is to be a system administrator and we know the amount of work and effort you all do on a daily basis. We also know very well that it is sometimes difficult to get some appreciation for your hard work.

Today, let us raise a glass, get some cake and cookies together with you and cheer on YOU!

As a company, we love the IT community. So as a token of our appreciation, and to make your lives easier, here is a list of free stuff you can get from us:
