During the just concluded VMworld 2015, EMC released a VSA named VVols Tech Preview to help people to test this technology in their labs. I was just waiting for the first vendor to offer the possibility to easily test VVOLs capabilities, so thanks to EMC for this. Time to deploy it in my lab!
I’ve waited a week after VMworld ended in San Francisco before writing this post: there were too many blog posts from every blogger trying to cover any new announcement like a newspaper, and with the addition of news collected directly from the Expo Floor, sessions I’ve attended and other sources, the amount of info to digest required a bit of time. This post is not a recap of the event, just the things that I’ve seen and I found interesting. If something is not here, it may be that I’ve missed it rather than don’t liking it.
My job at Veeam is the first time in my IT career working in a software company, and I’ve learned a ton of things about software development. Not as a developer myself, since I don’t have any code writing skill (I wouldn’t call my low scripting capabilities “coding”), but partecipating to internal discussions about development has been so far an interesting experience. One of the most fascinating things I’ve learned is UX (User Experience) development, in particular around the User Interface.
A nice and easy way to receive email notifications into Slack.
The upcoming Veeam Availability Suite v9, among many new and exciting features, will bring more enhancements for Enterprise environments. Learn more about Guest Interaction Proxy, Mount Server, Standalone Console, and all the enhancements coming for tapes.
Looking at the latest announcements and the history of the behemoth of public cloud services, probably yes. And a leading one.
If you want to learn how Veeam Cloud Connect uses encryption to protect and secure communications over an unsecure channel like the Internet, this video I recorded is for you.
Last year, together with the release of the new Veeam Cloud Connect, I wrote and published its Reference Architecture. The paper had a great success with 1500 people downloading it. Because of the new additions in Veeam Backup & Replication v8 Update 2, it was time to upgrade the document.
