How do I skill up fast on Veeam Availability Suite?

Maybe you are completely new to the product, or maybe you are trying to figure out what you don’t know? Regardless, you can find an easy path to get started on this topic.

Step 1

First of all, Veeam offers great free bite-size training at Veeam University. These videos will cover you from how to install, an overview of the console, creating your first backup jobs, and much more. My favorite part is that you get asked simple quiz style questions along the way to help you focus and validate you are learning.

Step 2

At this point, you might want to learn more about specific features such as restores and there is a large collection of how-to videos already provided right here.

Step 3

Now that you have seen a number of how-to videos and recordings, it is a great time to try out the product for yourself. Perhaps you still have concerns and want to ask questions live? Veeam has regular live product demos on the website and you can find the schedule here - they are a great place to ask questions and our staff always loves the engagement!

Step 4

We all learn differently and perhaps a live instructor-led training with hands-on exercises is more suitable? In that case, Veeam has you covered with the Veeam Availability Suite: Configuration & Management training. There is even a certification exam to prove your skills afterward.

Step 5:

Veeam offers amazing documentation and you could start off with the QuickStart guide and from there move on to the full user guide. I would recommend the full user guide as more of a document to look up information than to read back to back in one sitting. Both the quick start guide and the full user guide can be found on the Veeam Help Center website.

Hey @DerekA!

If you mean Veeam University, Veeam Availability Suite module will take approximately 2,5 - 3 hours of your time! :blush:
