I have just discovered an interesting session in the VeeamON agenda: “Object First Makes Veeam Backups Better”
“Object First” is the new company from the Veeam founders Andrei Baronov and Ratmir Timashev!
So far there’s not much information available, but according to an interview on vmblog.com (https://vmblog.com/archive/2022/05/06/veeamon-2022-q-a-object-first-will-showcase-how-it-provides-primary-target-object-storage-for-veeam.aspx) we’re going to see an object storage based primary backup repository specifically designed for Veeam Backup.
I personally didn’t hear anything about this company before and would have probably missed the session, as it’s already tomorrow and not found in the main agenda.
The session will start on Monday at 12:00PM PT or 9:00PM GMT+2. In case you’re also interested, here’s the link to the session: https://web.cvent.com/hub/events/659c08fe-e178-47e3-b354-f251151abefe/sessions/d9ce1628-a7d1-44fb-8684-cb1525ec061e
Also here’s the webpage of Object First: https://objectfirst.com/
I’m really excited for this session and can’t wait to see what they’ll introduce in detail. Object Storage will receive a much higher focus in v12 as we’ll be able to use it as a primary repository. So I think in the future we will have a much higher adoption of object storage, both on-premises and in the cloud.
