Less than 1 month left until VeeamON 2014 (Oct. 6-8). My colleagues planned this event for many months, and today, when we entered the final stage of preparation, I decided to make a short overview of all the sessions that will be offered within five tracks: Technical-Sales, Technical-SE, Business, Technical and Monitoring.
Before I tell more about the tracks, I want to say a couple of words about the VeeamON agenda in general.
As I mentioned above, VeeamON 2014 will take place in Las Vegas, on Oct. 6-8.
Oct. 6 (Monday) is the Partner Day. All sessions in this day are dedicated to Veeam partners and how they can meet their business goals together with Veeam.
Oct. 7 (Tuesday) and October 8 (Wednesday) offer general sessions (including breakout sessions by industry experts, executive keynotes, expert panels, and more) intended for all types of attendees.
I would also like to give a special mention to the VeeamON 2014 Party which will take place in the LIGHT Nightclub at the Mandalay Bay Hotel on Oct. 7 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. You don’t want to miss this event!
The Technical Sales Professional track includes four 1-hour sessions on Oct. 6. All of them go one by one starting at 1 p.m.
During these partner sessions, you will learn more about what’s new in Veeam Availability Suite v8, Veeam Management Pack v7, Veeam Cloud Connect and how to use these tools for greater customer value.
The list of speakers includes Veeam executives such as Anton Gostev (VP, Product Management), Doug Hazelman (VP, Product Strategy) and Alec King (VP, Product Management, Veeam MP).
The Technical System Engineers (SE) track offers four 1-hour sessions on Oct. 6. This program is all about best practices for Veeam partners and real-world examples complemented by undocumented tips & tricks beyond official technical guides from our architects.
Session attendees will learn about deploying Veeam ONE in large environments, the multi-tenant capabilities of Veeam Enterprise Manager for service providers, Veeam Backup & Replication deployment aspects from the point of view of right-sizing proxy servers or backup repository performance, and more.
The Business track includes more than 20 sessions, 6-9 sessions each day.
On Oct. 6 (Partner Day), you can learn more about the Veeam ProPartner Program, Veeam certification, and how to get real benefits for your business with the help of Veeam.
If you want to learn more about joint solutions, for example, Veeam with NetApp, ExaGrid or Kaseya, than Oct. 7 and Oct. 8 are your days. Tuesday and Wednesday offer fifteen 1-hour sessions about availability best practices and first-hand experiences from customers who are leveraging Veeam on a day-to-day basis.
Sessions in the Business track are presented by speakers from companies such as Forbes, Gartner, VMware, NetApp, The Register UK and more.
The Technical track is designed for IT pros. During the 15+ sessions, Veeam experts will tell you about what’s new in Veeam Availability Suite v8 from the technical point of view, best practices, most common misconfigurations, performance bottleneck analysis, deduplication, storage architecture and its right sizing, and more.
Every attendee will leave inspired having learned something new and ready to implement new improvements in their virtual environment.
Another interesting program is the Monitoring track which will take place on Oct. 7.
These sessions are dedicated to Veeam ONE and Veeam Management Pack for VMware and Hyper-V, i.e. keeping an eye on your repository, hosts, VMs and applications. Attendees will get a deep-dive in monitoring dashboards, reports, customized alarm notifications, capacity planning, troubleshooting and more.
Personally, I plan to do a lot of learning over the three-day conference. Feel free to let me know if you would like to connect at the event – I will be glad to meet with our readers and discuss your thoughts on data availability and virtualization.
