Veeam and PernixData: vPower on steroids!

I’ve always been a fan of PernixData since the day I first learned about them at Storage Field Day 3 more than a year ago. I’ve always been in touch with them afterwards, visited their offices in San Jose, and I was also accepted into their PernixPro program. Thanks to the program, I got the opportunity to test with some advance the new release of PernixData FVP 2.0, and a couple of new enhancements seemed to me like a perfect fit for an integration with Veeam Backup & Replication. Have you ever thought what could be the result of accelerating Veeam vPower NFS using Pernixata?

Veeam Availability Suite v8 has just been released and customers and partners are already starting to upgrade their environments and explore the several new features that have been added to this latest version of the software.

Veeam Backup I/O Control and Snapshot Hunter at Tech Field Day X 2014

Veeam has always been a great supporter of Tech Field Day. As a sponsor Veeam presented several times at various TFD events, and both me and my colleague Rick Vanover have been previously TFD delegates before joining Veeam. We had another opportunity to meet Stephen Foskett and to present at TFD during VMworld EMEA 2014 in Barcelona last week. We had a 1 hour meeting and it was a really pleasant meeting as always. This time, we used our slot to talk a little bit more in details of two new upcoming features in Veeam Backup & Replication v8.

2014: my fourth VMworld. Or the first?

This will be my fourth VMworld in a row, the third in the US. But it will also be my first one. It’s no secret I joined Veeam this year in February (by the way, it’s six months now, time is flying…), and in my role I will attend both VMworld US and EMEA events. This will be my first experience at VMworld as a vendor employee, and I’m thinking about what to expect.

5 blog posts I didn’t write #1: Veeam tips

I always liked the series “7 blog posts MSPmentor didn’t write” from MSPMentor website. It was one of the first examples of blog digest I found several years ago. This is my personal digest: these series is not going to be scheduled; instead, as the title suggests, I will publish a new post everytime my favorite list will reach 5 posts. Also, I’m trying to have a common topic among the blog posts I’m linking, and the first topic is Veeam Backup & Replication.
