If you are subscribed to this blog via RSS, you may have noticed that May and June have been two empty months in terms of writing, and tobe honest the entire 2019 has not been so prolific as usual. This is because I worked, and I’m still working, on some large projects that took a big chunk of my time. I’m still writing these days, but the outcome is coming out in big pieces instead of weekly posts. The first one is this, about Veeam Availability Console.
More than two years ago, when we released Veeam Cloud Connect 9.0, I massively reworked my original paper on the topic, and the final result became a book available as a pdf. The book was also printed and I have some copies at home; not something to win any nobel price, but it's nice to see them there as remind me of the massive work it took. Then, the cloud was calling, and I decided it was time to make it more modern and after some re-editing and learning how markdown and github work, the book became an online resource that people can freely and easily read.
Veeam Cloud Connect reference architecture, the book that I wrote two years ago, is now available as an online book that you can read or download as pdf, mobi or epub.
I’m working on some heavy lab tests in these weeks, plus I’m travelling a bit more than usual, so my blogging activity has slowed down a bit. As I’m catching up on the news I read around, I found two different articles that can give to all of us a good perception about two things about the public cloud, or the so called “hyper-scalers”. They have insanely massive resources, but as insane as they are, they are not infinite.
Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 has just been released in its GA (General availability) version yesterday, which means that every customer can download the new version and upgrade their own installation. While you download the software, let’s have a look at the What’s New document. There are as usual some really interesting things!
VeeamHub is a new github repository for the Veeam community, curated by Veeam engineers and architects. Here you can find scripts and other useful code.
After many years thinking about writing one, and many years never being able to do so, I was finally able to write a technical book. Topic? Veeam Cloud Connect.
This August I will present together with my colleague Clint Wyckoff at VMworld 2016 in Las Vegas. Our session is going to be a technical deep dive in one of the upcoming features of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5, dedicated to service providers using vCloud Director.
