One of the cornerstones of Veeam is interaction with the virtualization community. As you may have noticed, we’ve branched out into a few new spaces recently. Regarding white papers, we have recently launched a few new ones; written by members of the virtualization community:
The Essential Guide to Legacy-Free Disaster Recovery by Sean Clark
In this whitepaper, Sean navigates through the journey we have all experienced in one way or another-from traditional server environments to the virtualized data center. What about data protection? Sean explains howdata protection needs to be changed along the way as well.
VMware and Microsoft VSS: What You Need to Know by Greg Shields
VSS has been in use for a number of years and across a number of different applications. However, not until you read Greg’s whitepaper on VSS will your understanding be complete. Greg explains why VSS is important as well as the risks of not using VSS properly as applied to virtualized environments.
The Expert Guide to VMware Data Protection by Eric Siebert
Chapters one and two of this e-book are a great resource to identify the key concepts of VMware virtual machine backups, best practices and real world examples of using VMware data protection strategies. More chapters from Eric are on their way, and this series will bring something for everyone.
We need more great content from virtualization experts like you.. If you are interested in writing a whitepaper or other product for Veeam, here are some of the things we are looking for:
- Virtualization experience: Above all else, we need community content that is based on real-world experience with virtualization.
- Focus on content: Let the Veeam Teeam make the formatting magic happen in the white paper – you just have to bring the unique content.
- Timeliness: We need to be able to set a delivery date with you and stick to it.
- Good ideas for content: Experience is a great source of content, and if you have experiences related to virtual machine data protection and management that can be presented clearly; we’d like to talk to you.
