The world’s premier Availability event ended two weeks ago, and I truly believe it couldn’t have been more impressive! VeeamON 2017 took place at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, and as you’ll see later in some pictures, we painted the city in green.
VeeamON 2017 was an important landmark in the history of Veeam, not due to its size, but due to the value it brought to our partners, customers and to everyone in the Veeam family. We delivered our new vision for how Veeam enables seamless digital life experiences for businesses across the world, and unveiled our new branding — a facelift to our charming identity.
To emphasize the vision I mentioned earlier, at VeeamON we made a few major announcements that will change the game for the digital transformation journey. We revealed the NEW Veeam Backup & Replication v10, designed to extend the Always-On Cloud Availability Platform to Physical Servers and Network Attached Storage (NAS), Tier-1 applications and mission-critical workloads with NEW Veeam CDP and native object storage support.
We also announced the Veeam Availability for AWS — the industry’s first cloud-native, agentless data protection and Availability solution for AWS applications and data. You can find the complete list of announcements made at VeeamON 2017 here.
Besides the product announcements, there were a plethora of different activities to keep everybody busy: 85+ breakout sessions held by Veeam experts, numerous Vanguard sessions, alliance meetings, main stage keynotes from Cisco, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Microsoft and VMware, LabWarz competition, Rafflethon and much more. Here are some pictures taken during the conference days:

Almost 3,000 attendees joined us for our biggest conference and their feedback was great, but don't just take my word for it —
All in all, VeeamON 2017 was an incredible experience and a great opportunity for networking and learning about industry trends and new Veeam products. If you couldn’t make it to New Orleans this year, mark your calendar for May 14 – 16, 2018 when VeeamON 2018 heads to Chicago.
