VMBlog speaks with Rick Vanover, VP of Technical Product Marketing during VeeamOn 2017 in New Orleans. Rick discusses some of the new features in veeam availability suite 10 and also talks about the Vanguard program.
It's hard to believe that by tomorrow, more than 3,000 people will have made their way to the city of New Orleans to discuss the latest in data center modernization using virtualization, storage and cloud technologies. The event that's bringing everyone together is called VeeamON and it is being dubbed as "the world's largest event entirely focused on Availability" by its creator and presenter, Veeam.
VeeamON officially kicks off to the public May 16th and ends on May 18th. To find out more about this week's event, I spoke with Veeam's director of technical product marketing and evangelism, Rick Vanover, who provided me with additional insight and advice for attendees ahead of the show.
All the best things come in threes – the Star Wars Trilogy (the originals, of course), the Bronte sisters, a three-piece suit and, of course, my kids. To add to this, next month will see the third VeeamON open its doors in New Orleans, and you cannot afford to miss it!
From May 16 – 18, the Big Easy will be awash with Veeam green as VeeamON 2017, the world’s premier Availability event, hits the city. We’re expecting three thousand delegates to join us and experience three days of keynotes, breakout sessions, networking, training, the Expo Lounge and the return of LabWarz.
We’re less than a month away, and if you’re still unsure about why you should attend, here are a few reasons why you can’t miss the Availability event of the year.
VMBlog speaks with Rick Vanover of Veeam at their booth during vmworld 2016. Rick gave us a demo of a new feature that reduced the backup time from 36 minutes down to 58 seconds.

What Does Veeam Have Planned for VMworld 2016?
As part of VMblog's live VMworld 2016 coverage coming up in a few weeks, we're in the process of working up our schedules to make sure we can see and learn as much as possible when the show kicks off. VMworld is the leading virtualization event, and there is no shortage of great information coming out of the keynotes, the breakout sessions, the networking and more. But every year, one of the key places to learn a lot in a short amount of time is the Solutions Expo where valuable vendors from the VMware ecosystem and beyond set up shop to display their wares.
Over the years, VMworld has always had a large turnout of vendors sponsoring the event. And the expo floor always seems massive! With so many vendors exhibiting, how do you know which booths to visit and who to get on your schedule?
Like many of you reading this, I've known and followed Veeam for many, many years. But if you don't yet know or follow Veeam, do! VMworld is the perfect opportunity to meet them up close and personal. For most VMware admins, Veeam is probably one of those ecosystem vendors who popped up on the radar screen pretty quickly. I've become friends with many of their team members over the years, and I've also had the pleasure and been fortunate enough to get to know Ratmir Timashev, one of the most passionate and down to Earth CEOs I've ever met. Together, this team and company have transformed VMware backup into what they today call "Availability for the Always-On Enterprise." Oh, and if you're looking for a VMware 2016 Party to attend, Veeam has been one of the premiere party events the last few years, hands down.
