Hey!

 

Sorry it’s late in the day but happy Friday! Today’s Fun Friday question is. What year did you first use Veeam? Bonus points if you can remember what you were using it with!

 

For me it was 2013, I’d just gone to another company that was using Veeam + VMware and I immediately felt like this was the first truly user friendly backup solution.

 

It was really intuitive and actually saved me during my first ever ransomware battle later that year! (Thanks to rotated USB disks!)

I think around version 2. Don't recall the year. It's been a while though.

2017 with V9.5.

My first task with a Veeam product was to build a Cloud Connect Environment. I haven‘t any experience with veeam until then. 😅

When I started at my current company in 2017 I first used the Veeam solutions. I was before already familiar and specialised in other backup-products but when I used Veeam more and more, I started to love this product and find it better than all other backup products I worked with. In a short period I became the most specialised Veeam person in my company, I took the VMCE course, studied, did my exam and became a VMCE, I took the VMCE-AD course, studied and did my exam and became a VMCA. Since then I’m responsable for the backup and disaster recovery category and being the Veeam product owner and the Veeam expert. Now being the only Legend in my country, no one will doubt on my opinion regarding Veeam products :blush::wink:. So in years not the most experienced engineer, but installed it already very often, solved many many cases, have created many backup designs and implemented them.
