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.
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.
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.

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.
The last presentation I attended at Tech Field Day roundtables during VMworld US 2013 was with SimpliVity. SimpliVity is a company working in the hyper-converged market, like Nutanix and ScaleComputing. Founded in Boston in 2009, it has now around 100 employees, and 65 of them are engineers; this percentage to me is a sign of a […]
During the Tech Field Day roundtables at VMworld US 2013, I had a change to meet Infinio. Infinio is a startup founded about 2 years ago, with the idea to create a solution for storage acceleration, with some design objectives about being efficient, as cheap as possible and easy to manage for IT admins. Their overall […]
This year I had the pleasure and the honor to be invited again by Stephen Foskett at Tech Field Day Roundtables, hosted during the days of the VMworld US 2013 that just finished. I had the opportunity to meet three different vendors, and the first of them has been Asigra. I should be honest, before this […]
