Though this is a Veeam Community site, not everyone may know, or have heard, Veeam is having their big yearly conference next month - May 25-26 (26-27 APJ). As with last year’s event, this year will also be of the online variety. Hopefully next year we’ll get to meet in person!
You may be asking, “why should I attend?” Well, let me provide a few very good reasons why:
- Knowledge is power! And Veeam will have a lot of it on display via deep-dive sessions and demos. Veeam Solutions Architects, such as Tim Smith, and Senior Director of Product Strategy
@Rick Vanoverand his team of amazing professionals will deliver on-point content to help you implement Veeam in your environmet according to best practices and recommendations.
- What’s New? Every year
@Anton Gostevgives his “staple” What’s New session about what you can expect in the next Veeam version release. Though I haven’t seen any detailed schedule or agenda on the VeeamON content, I’m sure this session will still be given, as it has been ever since conference inception in 2014 (Anton has given this session at VMware’s VMworld conference over the years too!).
- SWAG! What’s a conference without a lil’ swag??! Well, not a conference, if you ask me Well, don’t worry...Veeam has your swag fix covered. Register for VeeamON here by May 5th and you could get a “Swag Bag” for free! NOTE: Not every country can receive the swag gift. After you register, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a link to register to get your swag bag… when doing so, check the drop-down list of countries Veeam is able to ship the swag to.
- Community! Yep, even via the online variety of conference, you can still have halfway decent community interaction with fellow BC/DR colleagues in the #vCommunity. Meetup through the online venue, via Twitter (you can find me here), or other social media outlets. Of course I prefer in-person interaction, but doing so virtually isn’t too awful bad (for now)
- Training - ok, so actual VMCE training will not be given, but….. Veeam is offering a signifcantly reduced training voucher for VMCE Classroom Training. If you’re interested in persuing VMCE, I highly recommend purchasing this voucher to begin your VMCE journey.
- FREE!!! Yep, that’s right...it’s free. As in, no $$, no “duckets”, no “dinero”...i.e. free. You can view any & all VeeamON content.
- And last but not least….the legendary Veeam Party! If you attended last year, you know Veeam procured top-notch entertainment, having none other than Keith Urban perform.
Who will they have this year? Well, only way to find out is to register. I provided the registration link above, but in case you don’t want to scroll back up, click here to register. Hope to “see” you all there!
