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.
These are the details of the session:
Data Protection as a service for your vCloud Director environment with Veeam [HBC9463-SPO]
Luca Dell’Oca, Cloud Architect, Veeam Software
Clinton Wyckoff, Technical Evangelist, Veeam Software
31st August 2016, Wednesday, 3:30 PM
Join Luca Dell’Oca (@dellock6) and Clint Wyckoff (@ClintWyckoff) for a deep dive session into Veeam Availability Suite and its support for VMware vCloud Director. This session will focus on both the service provider and tenant personas and detail Veeam’s existing and forthcoming vCloud Director support. The upcoming release version, v9.5 builds upon the already existing vCloud Director support by enhancing the functionality which allows the service provider the ability to offer their tenants a complete data protection experience including: seamless authentication using native vCloud Director credentials, multi-tenancy, self-service backup and restore operations, and application-aware processing with complete confidentiality of their tenant’s guest OS and application credentials. We’ll guide service providers and tenants alike through a journey that allows you to maximize the data protection strategy of your vCloud Director environments. During the session we’ll provide a recap of Veeam’s existing vCloud Director support as well as a deep-dive into what’s next. You will see a live and interactive demo of the NEW Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 and its integration with VMware vCloud Director.
I wrote a few weeks ago about this upcoming feature in the official Veeam blog, and in my new role as the EMEA Cloud Architect at Veeam I had time already to test the solution in my lab and present it to several service provides. The feedback so far has been really positive, and I’m really confident that the final version will make many providers happy. My lab will be also used during the session to run a series of live demos, as we really want to show how easy and powerful the solution is.
If you work with vCloud Director and you are thinking about offering self-service data protection to your tenants, this session may be an interesting one for you.
See you in Las Vegas.
PS: The session is going to be repeated also in Barcelona for the VMworld Europe event.
