Why I am attending Veeam On

Why are you attending Veeam On in Miami?

Blatantly obvious reasons aside, many people ask me why I like Veeam.  My answer is always some permutation of the following:

Veeam keeps me safe in presales, sales, engineering and architecture.

Personally, I am responsible for data and I have pondered the question, if I owned a company, would that cadence continue?

The answer is unequivocally, yes

Knowing quite well how to architect and deploy Veeam, tightly integrated with whatever platform or solution I am involved in, I literally sleep better knowing I can restore any data that I have backed up, in a plethora of ways.  To this end, put simply, I love Veeam products.

On top of this, having been involved within the vCommunity, the excellent Veeam User Group in the UK (VUGUK) and now worldwide via the Veeam Vanguard program, I have been fortunate enough to meet and interact with some of the most remarkable people online, who have always willingly and openly shared their knowledge and experiences.  This contributes even further to expertise, to deliver platform availability.  Events like these give you access to a collective pool of worldwide knowledge, people who are passionate about the products and that passion, when coupled with a hungry mind, can yield mutually beneficial results for not only you, your company as a whole and ultimately, the end user or customer.

Why should anyone attend Veeam On?

To ask questions, ask multiple people, ask anyone!  You will get an incredibly balanced set of views, opinions, best practices and real-world experiences, from people who are doing it, day in, day out, that information is pure gold. Having seen some information on the presentations via the breakout sessions, I know I will certainly be learning and networking, then taking home valuable information and contacts with me, that will benefit not only myself, but Novosco as a whole.

The icing on the cake for me, will be having personal access to industry experts on a face to face level.

When the hotel and flights to Miami cost less than the list price of taking the VMCE course in the UK, it’s a no brainer.

Are you taking any training?

Yes!  Having passed numerous exams ranging from the trusty VMware VCP to Cisco CCNP level exams, I have been seeking VMCE for a while.  Now is my chance to take the course and enjoy what I hope will be blissful surroundings in the evenings, taking a stroll down no less than Miami Beach!  On top of that, I know I will meet amazing people to network with and get insight from their experiences, which in turn, will help me deliver results that will further protect not only me and my company, but ultimately the customer.  What’s not to like?

So, what is Happening at Veeam On 2019?
